Course Listings on the BCTA/NA Website

Only approved BCTA/NA teachers can list their Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Introductory Courses, Foundation Courses, and/or Advanced Courses on the BCTA/NA website.  At Foundation trainings listed, there must be an approved teacher for 100% of the training, for the students to be eligible for RCST® membership. There is no fee for website listings.

Foundation Courses are listed as ‘Current Courses’ for the first four months of the training. After that time, they are moved into a ‘Past Courses’ section on the course listing web page. On June 15 of each year, any past foundation courses that are more than four months into their training are removed from the website.

All other Course listings, including Introductory classes, will be removed two months after the course has completed.

To request your course be listed, please use complete the appropriate Course Listing Request form:

You must be a BCTA/NA Approved Teacher to access these request forms. If your course details change, please let us know immediately, so we can keep your listing accurate.
