Q: Is there a discount if I pay for both the Weekend Seminar-Workshop and the Advanced 5-Day course at the same time?
A: There is no discounted rate for purchasing the Weekend Seminar and the Advanced 5-Day courses at the same time.
Q: I am an equine massage therapist. Can I just skip the weekend seminar and go on to the Advanced 5-Day course?
A: The Weekend Seminar-Workshop is unique in that you learn to recognize the horse’s signs of release and also the levels of pressure to use. The seminar is a pre-requisite for the Advanced 5-Day course.
Q: Who is teaching the Weekend Seminar-Workshop course?
A: Instructors are assigned to the weekend seminars once the course is confirmed. All of our instructors are hand-picked by Jim Masterson, however, it’s important to remember that the course is about the Masterson Method® and not the instructor.
Q: Do I need to know anything else prior to my coming on a Weekend Workshop?
A: You must have read and/or viewed the Beyond Horse Massage book and/or DVD as this material is what the weekend seminar is based on. We also send out this link, Seminar Logistics, to all registrants prior to the course.
Q: How do I get my login for the Online Course I purchased?
A: If you purchased the Equine Anatomy or the Home Study course, we will create an account for you and send in your login instructions via email. This usually takes place the next business day after you purchase the online course.
Q: My login won’t work; what do I do?
A: The online courses can be accessed using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers, not Internet Explorer or Safari. These browsers can be downloaded for free on the internet. If you are still having problems, try clearing the browsers history and if your device wants to auto fill in your username and password, clear it out and retype it.
Q: What is the Certification program and how does it work?
