There are two ways to host a course. The first is hosting a public course. Public courses are usually held at sites that can accommodate about 40 participants. For a public course, the Institute would handle all marketing and promotion of the event, collect all registrations and monies, and pay the costs for food, manuals, biofeedback and disposable equipment, instructor travel and payments, etc.
There is no charge from the Institute for hosting a public course. Likewise, the Institute does not pay for the room rental at hosting sites - as our hosts are those with a vested interest in educating their on site staff so they "trade" the space for comped spots (one free spot for a course with 12 or more paying participants, two free spots for courses with more than 20). Typically, we offer these comped spots in lieu of paying a fee to use the facility, which makes it a win-win for the locations with on-site staff they wish to train.
The second option is to do a private course - for those sites that wish to host a smaller event exclusively for in house therapists. For private events, the Institute does not market the course or put registrations on our website, and the site pays a flat fee to the Institute.
