To achieve the CPM One-to-One Apprenticeship Teacher Training in the USA you will be doing 2/3 of your training sessions in the USA and 1/3 in Zurich or the UK.
Note that 1/3 of your training hours will need to be taken at the Faculty’s studios either in Zurich or the UK.

Please note that whereas the full programme fee covers all 450 training hours in Houston, the UK and Zurich, it does not cover travel and accommodation costs for your time in Europe or the UK.
When looking at the logistics of taking this training please consider the extra costs for this trip. The office will help to find you reasonably priced local accommodation.
Hours will be divided between Zurich, the USA or the UK as follows:
The total Programme hours to be taken in the USA: a minimum of 405 of the 450 total.
Plus you will receive 20 hours of CPM Education Workshops in Dubai, Houston, Zurich or the UK: chosen individually to assist your learning and to be taken during the 18 to 36 month programme period.
