Certification

P-DTR CERTIFICATION 2018

As P-DTR GLOBAL AG became an official member and partner of ACA (https://www.acatoday.org), the following Certification procedure will be available from January 2018.

Certification is the guarantee of a high quality performance of practitioners and, therefore, the guarantee of the P-DTR method safety, reliability, and reputation.

The applicant will receive an official certificate from P-DTR GLOBAL AG, signed by Dr. Jose Palomar and board members (MDs and DCs), and stamped by ACA.

All guaranteed practitioners will be added to a special database for priority patients’ referrals and granted their own blog space on the P-DTR GLOBAL website to promote themselves.

The Certification is valid for 3 years. The certified practitioners must renew the Certificate of Proficiency and Certificate of Advanced Proficiency every 3 years, and the Certificate of Clinical Excellency once every 5 years in order to be updated with new material. Automatic prolongation is possible if the practitioner attended all of the Master Classes over 3 years’ time and/or retook the intermediate and advanced courses.

From 2018, the new point system will be introduced. It will also help practitioners renew the certificates. Points are going to be granted for retakes, videos, articles, Master Classes and feedback from patients.

All guaranteed practitioners will receive a 10% discount for all future Master Classes.

Those practitioners, who have passed the Master Level, will receive a gold membership and get a 30% discount on all future Master Classes.

There will be 3 levels of P-DTR proficiency.
