This accredited course is studied online. 

Once you have enrolled, you will be sent a DVD of the 8 Strands of Brocade. This will provide you with the study material for the practical work, but study days are also set up, which we hope you will take advantage of.

You will find that there are many different versions of the 8 Strands of Brocade so for this course we follow Master Jesse Tsao's practice.

On enrolment for this course you will be provided with access to the associated online study guides and assignments.


So what will I study for the APT course?

The theory element of this Level 3 course will provide you with a background to the philosophy & history of Qigong, the movements of 8 Strands of Brocade, modifications to enable you to teach 8 Strands of Brocade to a wider range of people and an understanding of the health & safety issues that an instructor should be aware of. You will learn about the internal benefits that practice of this Qigong can bring as well as the physical benefits for the different muscles of the body. 

There are a number of written assignments for this course and they are an integral part of your assessement for this Level 3 course. Written assignments are emailed to the assigned tutor for each unit. The rest of the assessment is via a final practical assessment which can be either a face-to-face session with the assessor and internal verifier for this course, or by a video recording of your practice.

A personal log/diary is a mandatory requirement for this course. Please ensure that you make regular entries for each Unit. You are required to make approx 40 entries over the course. These will need to show your journey through the course and will focus on both the theory and the practical work.
