ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teacher Program
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.
Licensed Reiki Master Teacher Training Program Overview
The Licensed Reiki Master Teacher Training Program (LRMTTP) is an advanced course of study for licensure as a Reiki teacher with the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). Applicants must apply and be accepted into the program in order to begin the training. The training requires approximately 1000 hours of study and practice which usually takes 3-4 years to complete. The curriculum is designed specifically for Reiki Masters who wish to dedicate themselves to teaching and practicing Reiki on a higher professional level. Some of our teachers operate healing centers. All maintain an active Reiki practice and are committed to empowering others through the use of Reiki. While each student teacher will be assigned a mentor to work with, our program is actually structured so each student teacher becomes an apprentice to the Reiki Energy itself. The following is an overview of the program. To download the 46 page program manual, click this link: LRMT Program Manual.

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

A. We cannot make exceptions to any of our program requirements. This is because we offer CEs and CEUs to professionals.
