Charting your course

If you would like to become an accredited Specialised Kinesiologist in South Africa, you will need to complete:

  • A foundation course. Options include:
  • Touch for Health – TFH 1 to 4 – (recommended by ASKSA as your first foundation course)
  • Basic Kinesiology Practice – BKP 101-110
  • At least two Specialised Kinesiology modalities. Your options include:
  • Touch for Health Proficiency, Metaphors and Instructors
  • Neuro-Training – (completion of modules 1 to 5, namely “Art of Solution-Oriented Neuro-training, Principles of Recuperation, Blueprints 1, Innate Intelligence and Integration)
  • Neural Organisation Technique (Completion of NOT 1 to 4)
  • The ICPKP Diploma course (Completion of 201 to 300)
  • Other kinesiology studies which have been approved by our Standards Generating Body.
You will also need to have an approved course in Anatomy & Physiology

Sample path: Recommended Level One Syllabus:

Touch for Health & Neuro-training courses

  • Touch For Health 1
  • Touch For Health 2
  • Art of Solution Oriented Neuro-Training
  • Emotional Kinesiology 1
  • Touch For Health 3

Once the student has completed the first 12 workshops, the student will have enough hours to be termed an Active Kinesiologist in terms of the ASKSA rules and regulations. After completing the last Neuro-Training workshop, the Neuro-training workbooks and Assessments, the student receives an International Neuro -Trainer Certificate, issued by Neuro-Training Pty Ltd. which complies with the Australian National Certificate IV in Kinesiology, HLT 42812. The student may then enrol for more advanced courses listed below.
It is essential that you have Anatomy and Physiology training in order to become a Specialised Kinesiologist. If you have previous studies in A&P and have certificates to prove this, you can apply to be credited for your prior learning.

The student receives an International Certificate in Professional Kinesiology Practice issued by ICPKP (encompasses Certificate in Basic Kinesiology Principles) which complies with the Australian National Certificate IV in Kinesiology, HLT 42812. The student will then be termed an Active Kinesiologist in terms of the ASKSA rules and regulations and can enrol for more advanced ICPKP series or study other advanced kinesiology workshops

Sample path: Recommended Level two Syllabus:

(You may also do any of the Advanced Workshops if you wish)

  • Anatomy and Physiology 1-10
  • Neural Organisation Technique 1
  • Neural Organisation Technique 2 & 3
  • Neural Organisation Technique 4

  • Personal Charades
Once you have 500 hours (including A & P), the student graduates to being a Specialised Kinesiologist in terms of the ASKSA rules and regulations. Once you have 1000 hours completed, the graduate becomes a Professional Specialised Kinesiologist. International Kinesiology Teachers are invited to visit South Africa from time to time, to train in new information and techniques in Specialised Kinesiology.

Further to this, once practicing, any registered kinesiologist must complete at least 28 hours (four days) of courses every two years in order to remain current.

Moderation and assessment

Each Module is internally moderated and assessed according to the licence holder’s requirements for certification. These include attending lectures, participating in practicals, completing exams and handing in theoretical papers. Certain modules require submission of a thesis paper.

Continual development

You may then go on to the Advanced courses within your chosen modality, or may select from other modalities, provided that you meet the minimum requirements for a given module.

Your instructors will assist ASKSA in maintaining a list of your accredited hours, but you may also keep track, with this spreadsheet. These accreditations, along with your annual Association membership fees, entitle you to list yourself and practice professionally, in terms of a standardised level of proficiency; a system that protects both the practitioner and their client.
