The CTS course has required reading and homework. The International Assocation of Trauma Recovery Coaching (IAOTRC) and Sacred Space Trauma Recovery require specific homework assignments and require that you read Bessel Van der Kolk’s The Body Keeps the Score and Pete Walker’s Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving.

After you have completed the course, I will let the Association know that you have completed all your homework to a satisfactory level and paid your tuition in full. Then you will take an examination through the Association, which you must pass with a score of at least 80%. Study sessions are available. 

After you meet those three requirements you will be credentialed as a Certified Trauma Specialist. Your credential will come from The International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaching, not Alinda or Sacred Space Trauma Recovery.

Once you are credentialed you will be listed in the Association’s directory of Certified Trauma Specialists.

Your credential will be vallid for two years. If you wish to renew your credential you must obtain 15 hours of Continuing Education credits, complete a Code of Ethics Review and pay a certification renewal fee of $50.

Please review theAssociation’s Certified Trauma Specialist Code of Ethics and the Guiding Principles
