Apply here to join the 2+ year EHS Professional Training Program, or to pay your deposit if you are a returning Level 2-3 Student.
The next Module will be offered ONLINE May 23-27, 2022.
Application DEADLINE is March 31, 2022!
(late applications are currently being accepted on a limited basis)
This program, presented by Eleanor Criswell Hanna Ed.D and co-taught by Alissa Mayer EHSE-C, is the only way to become a Certified Equine Hanna Somatics Educator.
The curriculum includes 3 Modules that meet once per year for 5 days, plus case-work and assignments between modules. Students who demonstrate the required level of knowledge and proficiency will be eligible for certification upon completion of Module 3, with an additional Certification Module becoming available for students who have not had the opportunity to work in-person with Eleanor & Alissa.
Tuition for each module is $1000* USD.
(There is a sliding scale option available based on financial need, making the total tuition due anywhere from $750-$1000.)
*Students returning for modules 2/3 are offered the same tuition rate as when you started the program, btw!
This $200 application fee/deposit goes toward your tuition if you are accepted.
This application will give us an idea of where you feel you are right now, and why you are interested in becoming a Certified Equine Hanna Somatics Educator. Prior experience with Hanna Somatics is not required, however at least a basic level of horse experience IS required before beginning Module 1.
Step 1: (All Levels)
Click the black/teal 'I want this' button and pay the $200 Application Fee. This fee will serve as your course deposit to hold your spot if you are accepted into the program, and goes towards your tuition fees. The $200 will be refunded (less processing fees) if the training is already full or your application is otherwise denied.
Step 2: (New Level 1 Students)*
Immediately after you pay your application fee, you will be redirected to a 3-page application form where you will enter your contact details, education, horse experience, and answer some questions about your professional goals. You MUST COMPLETE this second part of the application to be considered for the program!
*Returning students only need fill in the first page. ;)
Step 3: (New Level 1 Students)
Once both your Application Fee and Details are submitted and processed, we will contact you via email to schedule your telephone interview if you have not already completed it (for new Module 1 students). Returning students enrolling in Modules 2/3, or graduates are not required to repeat the phone interview, and will be automatically accepted.
Step 4: (All Students)
In April, 2022, we will send you the LINK to complete your enrollment in the online training course by paying the remainder of your Tuition Due. Once payment is processed, you will get access to the online course materials, detailed schedule for the LIVE portion of the course, and further instructions.

We look forward to working with students across all levels, from those with professional goals to recreational horse owners looking to learn how to do EHS with their own horses, as well as interdisciplinary professionals, veterinarians and researchers.
