    Dear TTIA Member,

    We welcome your interest in becoming recognized by Nurse Healers Professional Associates International/NH-PAI (the credentialing arm of Therapeutic Touch International Association/TTIA) as a Qualified Therapeutic Touch Teacher (QTTT).

    Credentialing provides mutual benefit for you as a teacher and for TTIA and NH-PAI. Through its recognition processes, the members of NH-PAI and the public can be confident that qualified teachers are being referred.

    Upon becoming a Qualified TT Teacher you will also be regarded by NH-PAI, Inc. as a Qualified Therapeutic Touch Mentor as well. Recognition as a QTTT also includes membership in the Therapeutic Touch Teachers Cooperative. Upon being granted QTTT status, your name will be placed on NH-PAI Teachers Referral List and you will be listed on the website.

    A processing fee of $25.00 is required at the time of application. The annual renewal fee for recognition, as a QTTT is $25.00. The period for which your credentialing is valid is (4) four years.

    QTTT peer review process is used to ensure consistency. We look forward to receiving your application. Please allow 4-8 weeks for the peer review process. When we have determined you have met the criteria to be accepted as a QTTT, you will receive an acceptance letter, QTTT card, and information regarding renewal.

    As a QTTT, you will be required to maintain records of all TT programs you participate in and/or teach, along with your students’ evaluations. Please be prepared to list all updating if requested to do so.

    If you have any questions, please contact us through the TTIA office. We will do our best to assist you or find another QTTT who can do so. We will walk you through the process as needed.

    In the Spirit of TT,
