Pro RYC® teachers are certified RYC® teachers who have been teaching RYC® for at least 6 months, meet certain teaching requirements, and want to teach RYC® workshops and assessments. The workshops are for both laypeople and professionals. We provide Pro teachers with all the marketing materials, class outlines, and an event listing on our site. They are also able to teach the 1-1 Assessments and receive all needed materials to do so. Teachers must apply and there is an annual fee to gain access to all of the materials and to be licensed to teach the workshops.
If you are enrolled in the RYC® Teacher Training, there will be a short test to demonstrate comprehension of material and philosophy. It is not pass / fail as everyone passes. It is simply a conversation to assure that you are clear on the materials. If you are enrolled in the RYC® Method Training, there is no test.
