Level 3 Lower - Halifax


The Level 3 Lower Quadrant "pulls it all together."  Advanced assessment techniques are taught to tackle the more difficult patient scenarios.  Higher level treatment approaches integrate the articular, neuromeningeal, and myofascial components.  This course will focus on treatment techniques.

In this 9-day format, there will be considerable independent work, accessing online lectures and completing readings, which will be part of the material you will be responsible for on the exam.  You will be provided access to the site prior to the course.

Examination of course material is to be held immediately following the course (within the time specified). Successful completion of this examination is a prerequisite to writing the intermediate level exam. Results and certificates (if applicable) will be mailed to the participant upon successful completion of the course/examination.
