Our Commitment To You

We’re In This Together.

A letter from the medical director

We want you to have a great certification experience and feel safe during your course – that’s why we’ve continued to follow the guidance of the CDC for enhanced procedures to help reduce the spread of disease. We’re all in this together and by working together you can safely and confidently attend an Astym Certification Course.

As a company, we’re in close contact with our hosting facilities about these procedures and have set a number of guidelines in place. All host facilities are requested to have gloves, hand sanitizers, and extra cleaning materials available during lab and lecture. We also provide backup materials (masks, gloves, sanitizing wipes).

Your health & safety is paramount.

We follow guidelines and recommendations set by the CDC as well as state and local governments. For all Astym courses, we continue to request that all participants bring masks to their certification course. In accordance with updated CDC guidelines, all individuals attending an Astym Certification Course are required to wear a mask.

All participants (attendees, instructors, facility staff, etc.) must follow public health regulations and guidelines set by the state and local governments at each course.

We look forward to working together to create a safe and rewarding educational experience and will continue to update these recommendations as the CDC releases new guidance.

 

Sincerely,

Thomas L. Sevier, MD, FACP, FACSM
Medical Director of the Astym Program

COVID-19 Response FAQs

Do I still need to wear a mask if I am fully vaccinated?

Yes. In accordance with updated CDC guidelines, all participants attending an Astym Certification Course are required to wear a mask. We will continue to update these recommendations as the CDC releases new guidance.

Can I get certified online instead of in-person?

Can I move my registration to a different course or later date?

Yes, we can move your registration to another course! You will not have to re-register. If you’d like to move your registration, please contact us at astymcertification@astym.com or (765) 751-2341.

What if I want to cancel?

The cancellation policy allows you to cancel up to 14 days prior to the course. We understand in some situations, this may not be possible. Due to this, we will waive the $250 administration fee for certain participants.

If we are not notified of your lack of attendance or a last-minute cancellation occurs, your absence will be up to the discretion of the executive committee for review.

Per usual, Performance Dynamics, Inc. (PDI) reserves the right to cancel a training course at any time and will issue a full refund. PDI reserves the right to alter dates, times, locations, content, and faculty to accommodate unexpected needs. PDI cannot be responsible for expenses incurred by registrants if the program is canceled or altered.

Do I need to do anything special before the course?

As a reminder, all online coursework MUST be completed prior to attending the live on-site training portion of your certification. After submitting your registration, you’ll receive course information on attendance, what to wear, meals, testing, and practical exams.

Remember to pack your mask for the live on-site training portion of your certification!
