The ERA is committed to the academic growth and ongoing development of therapeutic skills in all of its graduates. As a result, we maintain a rich and varied program of 2 to 6-day workshops. All Certified Rolfers® must complete a minimum of eighteen days of approved continuing education over a period of three to seven years in preparation for their Advanced Rolfing® Training; this is a requirement to maintain the Rolfing certification.
To fulfill the requirements in preparation for the Advanced Rolfing Training, credits from all three areas are required:
• Manipulation — Structural
• Movement — Rolf Movement
Beyond this 3 to 7 year commitment to further education and development, the ERA encourages its members to develop a life-long program to do so. In support of this goal, the ERA is constantly seeking courses and instructors to support the members interest and continuing development in three areas.
• Post – Basic Certification workshops which are frequently used by the majority of members as a way to prepare for their Advanced Training.
• Post – Advanced Certification workshops which are closed to all but Advanced Rolfers.
• Post – Movement Certification workshops
Members of ERA receive regular updates and announcements of workshops and training opportunities, or can find them easily at the bottom of this page.
These continuing education requirements are among the many ways in which the ERA maintains its high standards and demonstrates them to the community.
