The CRA Certification Journey

OVERVIEW

A Certified Practitioner of CRA® is a Doctor that has met all the training and research requirements necessary to become a licensed provider of Contact Reflex Analysis®.  Currently there is certification for CRA module 1 with certification for CRA module 2 under development. Doctors will be identified as to how advanced they are through the certification designation. eg. CPCRA-1, CPCRA-2

The CRA Certification Journey is new and continues to be development, but it starts with CRA Module 1. We had our first certification weekend for Module 1 in April 2021. It was our inaugural run with a small group of docs who are now CPCRA-1—Certified Practitioners of CRA Module 1.

DETAILS FOR THE CERTIFICATION JOURNEY

Who May Be Certified?

Certification is for health professionals who have a postgraduate degree in the healing arts and have a current license (registered/certified) to treat and diagnose in the field related to their qualifying degree. (Examples: chiropractor, naturopathic doctor, osteopathic doctor, medical doctor, oriental medical doctor, nurse practitioner, dentist, acupuncturist, occupational therapist, psychologist, physical therapist, and more.)

Students cannot certify in CRA until after graduation and receipt of their license/certification. They are, however, welcome to complete the modules prior to graduation and are encouraged to do so to receive student pricing. Student pricing is valid for one year after graduation.
