Is there continued training after receiving the certification?
Yes, all practitioners are required to attend 8 of the 10 monthly supervision group sessions per year.
When will I be able to work with anaphylactic clients?
Upon completion of the training, you will be certified as a first level A.R.T. Practitioner and able to work with non-anaphylactic clients. If you are interested in working with anaphylactic clients, you must demonstrate your proficiency at the first level for about a year or two before you will be given one or two clients who are categorized as anaphylactic but who have not had an anaphylactic reaction. Once proficient and confident with clients at this level, you will then be given clients who have had more serious reactions and continue to grow to work with clients who have used the EpiPen.
Are there forms or material we can use for our practice?
Yes, A.R.T. has forms already created for you to use. You will also be given permission to use excerpts from the main website to use for your website.
Is there a referral system or will I need to find my own clients?
Once you receive your certification and have insurance, your name and contact information will be added to the A.R.T. website under the practitioner page.
What is the Return on Investment?
Based on your initial investment of $25,000 charging your clients $70 per session, you will need to work with about 8 people a week for a year to recover the cost of your investment.
