ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teacher Program

PLEASE NOTE: The ICRT is placing a temporary “HOLD” on accepting new Student Teacher Applications until further notice.

Please note that the ICRT is an accrediting body and membership organization. Our Licensed Reiki Master Teachers (LRMTs) are licensed to use our name and our logo as an indication that they are members of our membership association. They are not employed by the ICRT and teach their classes as independent business people responsible for scheduling their own classes, collecting class fees, and setting up class locations etc.

Our LRMT program is an advanced curriculum of study that takes 3 years to complete and one must be a teaching Reiki Master for at least a year before applying to the program.

The program includes taking all our classes, reviewing all our classes, taking a written examination, passing a psychological test, writing a paper and documenting a minimum of 100 complete Reiki treatments after you
are in the program. Then you must co-teach each class before teaching on your own.

The advantages of our program are that the increased study will improve your ability to teach, helping you to be more professional in your presentation, thus producing better students. In addition, you will become associated with an International Reiki organization, and be able to advertise your classes in the Reiki News magazine and on our web site. The feeling of support and camaraderie is also a wonderful experience.

Our licensing program is not a state or government licensing. In our program, you become licensed to represent the Center and to use our name - The International Center for Reiki Training and our logo in advertising, business cards, on your web site or in other locations associated with their Reiki practic.*

To maintain their license, each teacher must review classes at least once a year and turn in class reviews from each student in classes they teach. They agree to support the Center Philosophy and Purpose and the Reiki Ideals and agree to be working on their own personal healing. They also agree to abide by a code of ethics and minimum teaching standards.

These high standards allow our
LRMTs to provide quality Reiki training that is consistent and verifiable. Our high standards have also helped us become qualified to offer Contact Hours for nursing through AHNA, and Contact Hours for massage therapy through NCBTMB to students who take our classes. In addition, our high standards provide the basis for our plans to interface with the medical community including working in hospitals and doctor's offices.

Please note that all Center classes are taught by LRMTs who are independent business people. All class fees are paid to the teacher and are not paid to the ICRT.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I have to take all my classes from a LRMT? I already have training from another school.

A.  Yes.  This is because our teachers are required to teach the ICRT program.  The only way to learn how to teach our program is by attending our classes.

Q.  Will you make exceptions for teachers who have a lot of experience?

A. We cannot make exceptions to any of our program requirements.  This is because we offer CEs and CEUs to professionals.  This accreditation requires us to assure the associations who offer credits that all of our teachers have identical training. Our ability to maintain our CE/CEU provider status depends on this.  However, we do value your previous training.

Q.  How many applicants are accepted each year?

A.  We are currently accepting 5 new applicants a year.

Q. Will there be someone to help me through the program?

A.  Yes, you will have a mentor/teacher, and you will also receive assistance from our Program Director and Administrator. We are here to help you.
