We began the Teacher Certification process to develop,
maintain, and provide support on a national level to those who teach
Guang Ping Yang T’ai Chi Ch’uan, and to help ensure a high
level of competency and the quality of instruction in t’ai chi
and related traditional Chinese internal martial arts disciplines.
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 wich 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 a member of the Guang Ping
Yang Association in order to become certified to teach.
