A Certificate of ATTENDANCE will be awarded by local instructor


Participants who would like to participate in the educational track towards becoming a certified practitioner can take this exam for an additional fee of 120 Euros.

The test will consist of an analysis of adult patients.  A link to view the videos will be sent to participant for analysis.  Participants are required to return the test to the DNS instructor within a month after the course. Upon successful completion and passing of the test, a  Certificate of ACHIEVEMENT from Prague School of Rehabilitation will be awarded.
