UNIVERSAL HEALING TAO Instructor Education Path Upgrading in Status and Certification Keys

Our Global Universal Healing Tao Foundation aims to provide for all Universal Healing Tao students and the entire Instructor Community the best possible quality of service in integrating and sharing the Universal Healing Tao (UHT) practices within the Universal Healing Tao System (UHTS).

The Universal Healing Tao Foundation (UHTF) requirements are valid globally and the same on all 6 continents. Every four years the UHT Continental Coordinators organize a Continental Instructors Meeting to inform, update, share and improve the system and ways of teaching and instructing others.

Requirements give you the information on how to upgrade Universal Healing Tao Instructor Status in a certain key subject.

Status Key Requirements is a summary of an instructor's experience within a certain UHT Branch and the progression of facilitation in the Universal Healing Tao System.

Certification Key Requirements indicates what module / practice / skill the instructor has been evaluated in and what he is certified to share publicly.

UHT Branches Curriculums - UHT Branch has detailed curriculums and guidelines which support the instructors to see what the study and subjects are involved within that UHT Branch.

Certification - After you have been evaluated and passed a certification or upgrading training you will receive a UHT Foundation Certificate.

Educators - Grandmaster Mantak Chia, the Founder of the Universal Healing Tao System, is presently the only Educator (able to evaluate and certify) on all levels within the system. There are also UHT Educators which are UHT Senior Instructors authorized by an educator agreement to upgrade UHT Instructors in statuses and keys. Additionally there are UHT Senior Instructors with an "Agreement to certify Associate Instructors". All global authorizations, requirements and certification procedures for each level within the UHT System are listed on the UHT Foundation Website. UHT Educators can only evaluate and certify others in what he/she is certified himself/herself and has achieved mastery in (as shown in their own statuses & keys).

We wish you a successful UHT Educational Career Path.
