Specific Requirements

To maintain your skills as a Professional Bowenwork Practitioner, 32 hours of American Bowen Academy-approved continuing education is due every two years on the anniversary of your certification date.

Extra hours (beyond 32) in any two-year period can be carried over to the subsequent two-year period if they have been taken within the last three months of the period.

Each hour of a continuing education course is equivalent to one CE credit.

For the first ten years of certification, the 32 hours of continuing education in any two-year cycle will include:

  • A minimum of 16 contact hours dedicated to revising and refining the basic skills taught in Modules 1 – 12. During 2021, due to the impact of Covid-19 on our ability to offer in-person classes, the Academy will accept online classes in lieu of the 16 contact hours.
  • The remaining 16 hours are “practitioner’s choice”, selected from any classes approved by American Bowen Academy and which the practitioner is qualified to attend.

Once a practitioner has been certified for ten full years, the 32 hours of continuing education required over any four-year cycle will include:

  • A minimum of 16 contact hours. During 2021, due to the impact of Covid-19 on our ability to offer i-person classes, contact hours may be replaced by online classes. During 2021, due to the impact of Covid-19 on our ability to offer in-person classes, contact hours may be replaced by online classes.
  • The remaining 16 hours are “practitioner’s choice”, selected from any classes approved by American Bowen Academy and which the practitioner is qualified to attend.

Contact hours are defined as hours spent in a classroom with an American Bowen Academy-approved instructor.
