We began the Teacher Certification process to develop,
maintain, and provide support on a national level to those who teach
Guang Ping Yang taiji, and to help ensure a high
level of competency and the quality of instruction in Guang Ping Yang taiji.
We established a Certification Committee to review
all applications and recommend to the Board approval or denial for a
Teaching Certificate. The Guang Ping Yang T'ai Ch'i Association Board
of Directors then has the final vote in which two-thirds (2/3) majority
is needed for granting certification.
You will find on this page links to all of the information
and paperwork needed to apply for a Teaching Certificate as well as
our Code of Conduct that describes the professional standards by which
Certified Teachers must teach.
It is a requirement to be or become a member of the Guang Ping
Yang Association in order to become certified by the Association.
If you are considering becoming a certfied instructor, we suggest that you read through the Offical GPYTCA Ceritifiction Program document. It defines and describes the programs and its requirements in detail.
