Requirements ~ Please read the following instructions carefully!

Both New and Updating Instructors will need:

  • Internet access on computer w/camera

  • Latest Free Version of Zoom (many beginner tutorials are available using Google)

  • To have a viewing area for Master Trainer to view the entire body profile from head to toes on camera when doing the form (please test this before the scheduled Zoom session)

New Instructors will need:

  • Dr. Paul Lam's TCA2 Instructional DVD or access to his Online lessons.  Suggested also is Dr. Lam's book "Teaching Tai Chi Effectively". These can be purchased at  (20% discount code for products that can be used in this workshop is MTWS20) 

  • Spend at least 15-20 hours studying with Dr. Lam on either of the above videos learning and reviewing the warm-ups and TCA2 form before the workshop. 

  • Potential new instructors will also be required to schedule Zoom time for pre and optional post-workshop checks with Master Trainer

  • It is also recommended that before the first pre-workshop meeting in Zoom, each participant record a full body profile video of yourself doing the warm-ups & the form.  You can use your phone or computer & camera and/or Zoom to record the video.  The private video recording can be a great self-training and review tool.  You will improve your skills significantly after completing and reviewing your video.  This is also a great check for viewing your entire body in the Zoom training sessions.

Updating Instructors will need:

  • To be previously certified in the desired TCHI program(s) within the last 3 years (call or email Bill if you need additional advice)

  • To complete the required update paperwork assignment for each program and return at least 1 week before your scheduled date

  • To review w/Dr. Lam's DVD(s) or On-line Learning for the form(s) to be updated before the workshop 

This workshop is designed to train new participants and/or update instructors to safely and effectively instruct these forms to others.  All participants will receive a competition certificate. Only those who adequately prepare and successfully complete all workshop requirements will qualify for an instructor qualification or re-certification certificate with the Dr. Paul Lam Tai Chi for Health Institute.

  • Attend day 1, TCA review & day 2, TCA2 Instructor Qualification Workshop
    Day1 12:00noon - 3:00pm EST - Day 2 9:30am - 4:30pm EST
