- Members are required to fulfill 36 hours of continuing education every two years to maintain membership. At least one half of these hours must come from Type I courses. One hour is equivalent to one clock hour.
- Courses are categorized as:
courses taught by Structural Integrators who have been in practice for a minimum of seven years. The course content covers technique, theory, perspectives, movement work or anatomy that define, explore or evolve the work of Dr. Ida Rolf.
Type I CE credit can also be met with other types of work in the SI field:
- Teaching SI workshops: Credit hours for the instructor are the same as those for the student;
- Authoring published articles about SI: 18 credits;
- Writing SI related books: credits to be evaluated individually;
- Mentoring SI practitioners: credits to be evaluated individually;
- Published SI research: credits to be evaluated individually;
- Attending SI symposia: 18 credits.
courses taught outside the field of Structural Integration, either by Structural Integrators or others. These are also SI courses taught by practitioners with less than seven years SI practice. The content of the workshop may come from any field the practitioner feels complements their SI practice. Visceral and craniosacral workshops are included in this category. Type II credit will also be given for non-SI conferences.
- After 25 years as a Structural Integrator, the practitioner will not be required to maintain CE requirements.
- Hardship Evaluation
For practitioners undergoing economic distress, family constraints or other temporary stresses, completing CE requirements may be difficult. These cases will be evaluated on an individual basis by the CE committee and will require a $25 fee and detailed explanation of the situation.
- Workshop Providers
To apply to have your workshop approved for IASI CE credit please fill out the enclosed Background Information Form for both Type I and II courses. A current resume/CV may be submitted in lieu of the form. Please provide all of the information on the Type I Application for courses to be approved in that category.

- Type I Course Approval
Workshop providers will be given a two-year approval for any specific course that has met IASI Type I CE requirements. At the end of the two-year period, continuing education providers may reapply following a similar application process. Significant changes to an approved course must be submitted to IASI for additional review.
- Criteria for Type I Course Approval:
- The course should emphasize both the methodology and technique of Structural Integration;
- The provider must have a minimum of seven year’s practice as a Structural Integrator and preferably have their Advanced Training.
- There are clear and concise written statements of intended learning outcomes.
- Content and instructional methods are appropriate for the intended outcomes.
- The provider evaluates the participants to see if learning outcomes are achieved.
- The provider issues a certificate of completion to each participant who satisfactorily completes the course. Provider sends a roster of participants who completed the course to the IASI office.
- The provider maintains course records for a minimum of five (5) years.
- Administration of the Approval Process
Courses that go through the approval process will be evaluated by the IASI Continuing Education Certification Committee. To ensure objectivity in the evaluation process, members of this committee are chosen from diverse backgrounds in Structural Integration.
