Trainer Certification Program Clinics


TCP Clinics enable USHJA members to complete the required educational element of the Trainer Certification process. Each TCP Clinic features at least one clinician over multiple days, who, using the principles of the American Forward Riding System, educates members on teaching skills. The number of TCP Clinics sanctioned throughout the country may be limited, and USHJA members can apply to host one of these TCP Clinics, providing that the potential host agrees to meet the requirements of this program outlined in the application packet.

   

Completed applications must be mailed, faxed or emailed at least 60 days in advance of the proposed clinic date


Auditing and TCP Educational Requirement

Those interested in attending a TCP Clinic must register with and pay auditor fees to the host. Trainers seeking credit toward the educational requirement of the Trainer Certification Program must notify the host of their intent, must attend all sessions in their entirety and must sign in and out each day of the TCP Clinic on the official form provided by the USHJA. TCP applicants must have attended a TCP Clinic or completed the Online Trainer Certification Course within one year of the application date.


Online Trainer Certification Course

In an effort to make the educational requirement for the Trainer Certification Program more affordable and easily accessible, USHJA has partnered with Bernie Traurig and EquestrianCoach.com to offer TCP applicants an online educational option. The material presented by EquestrianCoach.com mirrors the material in the TCP Manual and has captured the expertise of the best instructors in the world on video. A special video segment with George Morris is a major component of the Online Trainer Certification Course and features the primary concepts of the American System of Forward Riding.
