The CHEK Licensing Program

CHEK ITP Renewal 20182018-12-11T15:20:04+00:00

We’ve refined our licensing process to make it even simpler and more straightforward than ever before. And now you have four licensing options to choose from – each is designed to reflect your practice and comes with their own set of benefits. Read on to choose the right license for you and to complete your license application.

   

Why do we have a licensing program at all?

CHEK Institute Trained Professionals set the bar in Holistic Health and Fitness Industries. We want to ensure that all of our students continue to stay ahead of the curve.

To do that, we:

  1. Provide cutting-edge training
  2. Encourage our students to continue to grow their professional skills throughout the entirety of their career.

The CHEK Licensing Program is our way of achieving those two goals simultaneously and rewarding students with additional tools to help them grow their practice. It offers multiple career paths for you to choose whichever is best for your personal and professional goals.

What happens if I don’t renew my CHEK License?

If you do not complete your license renewal, you will lose access to all the benefits conferred by that license. You will also be required to proceed through the C.H.E.K Institute Late Renewal Process to restore your standing as a C.H.E.K Institute-Trained Professional.

What do I do if I did not renew last time in 2016?

If you did not choose to renew in 2016 you may complete the Late Renewal Process by clicking on the late renewal button above.

The Late Renewal Process

The Late Renewal Process is designed to help C.H.E.K Institute-Trained Professionals regain their license so you can enjoy all its benefits. You do not need to earn Professional Development Credits (PDCs); you simply need to pass the exam or submit a case history for the highest level Advanced Training Program that you have passed in each ATP category.

Late renewal is a straight-forward 5-step process:

  1. You need to have a current CPR certification and liability insurance, unless not available in your country, or you are not actively seeing clients at present. If you need to obtain these, you can do so after you complete the Late Renewal form and before you take the renewal exam.
  2. Click the late renewal button to the above.
  3. Complete the form and pay the US$230 fee.
  4. You will receive an email with details on how to take the exam.
  5. Follow the instructions to take the exam. When you pass, we will re-activate your status and you will receive the renewal certificate by email.

If you are not current, you can complete the Late Renewal Process at any time and your license will be renewed for a one-year period starting when your license is conferred.
