Mentor Training

The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) values quality mentorship and believes it is instrumental to the success of instructor candidates completing any level or discipline of certification.

This workshop was created as a mentoring skill development program in response to the need for formalized education to enhance the skills of those mentoring instructor candidates. The mentor training can be completed as either an in-person or online course.

In order to supervise an instructor-in-training through the practice teaching hours required for certification eligibility, you must currently hold at least the level of certification the candidate is pursuing if not higher. You must also be an instructor in good standing at the time the hours are completed in order for the instructor candidate to receive credit for the hours. The mentor training is not required to supervise instructor candidates, though it is highly recommended to support candidate success rates. 

If you are a PATH Intl. certified instructor in good standing and complete the mentor training, your name may be added to the online list of PATH Intl. Mentors. Certification candidates and/or mentors in training use this online list to locate mentors who have completed the mentor training. To be added to the online mentor list, plese submit a copy of your mentor training certificate of completion to the PATH Intl. office. Upon receipt, you will receive a mentor bio form with your contact information to be posted online. 

The mentor training is available to anyone who would like to take it; you simply have to be a PATH Intl. member. The training can be highly beneficial for program directors in order to begin or enhance a mentor program at their center. Mentor programs can be used as a source of income for your center.

All participants who attend mentor training will be signed up for the PATH Intl. online Standards Course and Instructor Self-Study exam so they are aware of the current exams instructors-in-training are required to complete. No specific score is required to complete the mentoring training.  

Please visit the PATH Intl. Events Calendar to identify mentoring training opportunities, both online and in person.

Disclaimer: It is the responsibility of course participants/mentors to maintain documentation and supply proof of their mentor training course certificate of completion. PATH Intl. does not retain copies of certificates of completion issued for any PATH Intl. workshops or trainings.
