Becoming a Kinesiopractor® equates to approximately 3800 hours of learning and is one of the most comprehensive, student-centred training programs in kinesiology available worldwide. ICPKP training programs blend theoretical study and practical experience, enabling students of all ages and backgrounds to learn kinesiology and become highly skilled and sought-after practitioners.
ICPKP courses are one of the few Kinesiology courses world-wide that have comprehensive student assessments, including both oral and practical exams. The student’s learning path is monitored for proficiency each step of the way. Each unit has an Assessment Journal to be completed and marked by the instructor.

This is to ensure graduates of ICPKP maintain a high level of knowledge and competency.
