PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor™ (CTRI) Study Guide

Certification as a therapeutic riding instructor is important to you. This invaluable tool can help you achieve your goal of becoming a PATH Intl. CTRI™ or of preparing your mentoring candidates.
The new PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor Study Guide™ is a comprehensive book created by a team of industry experts and is filled cover to cover with important tips and tools to help you prepare you for the CTRI test and your journey as an instructor. Included are chapters on: equine management; participant and volunteer management; lesson management; risk management; riding theory; taking the CTRI exam; and a glossary.
The PATH Intl. CTRI™ Study Guide is intended as a user-friendly resource to assist you in preparing for the certification exam. Organized into five sections to align with the subject areas of the CTRI exam and the various skills that you will be tested on, this guide helps ensure that you will be efficient in your content review and that you will be able to easily identify and go over any challenging content areas.
Each section begins with a summary of CTRI qualifications that allows you to quickly review a topic and then to reflect on whether it is a personal area of strength or weakness by answering scenario-based, study-format questions about how you would approach a riding instruction situation. In this manner, scenarios are used in this guide as a way for you to apply your understanding of key learning concepts and test your ability to analyze and evaluate.
Anyone wanting to become an instructor will want a copy of this invaluable resource in their physical or digital libraries. Click here for a look at sample pages. The guide is available in print and digital download format, and as always, PATH Intl. Members receive a significant discount. Both formats are available through the PATH Intl. online store.
