Being professionally licensed (Official SAMICS Instructors and Affiliates) by Peter Weckauf means you will have the proper training and tools to sustain your own group and it will establish you among the highest-quality trainers.
Our instructor training consists of the practical knowledge from our long standing courses, seminars and workshops both at home and abroad. The high quality of our training sessions is of utmost importance. Participants learn how to conduct successful courses, seminars, trainings camps and continuing education for their students. Highly qualified instructors are in great demand and stand a good chance to lead successful trainings.
We offer special trainings camps to learn our systems. The intensive seminars are the core part of our training academy. If you want to become a SAMICS instructor, then you will have to take part in an intensive trainings camp sooner or later. The course offers an excellent possibility to train and will be demanding and challenging for every participant.
The program follows an elaborate curriculum at the highest professional level. The training consists of developing technical skills, same as tactics, attitude and of course the principles and techniques of our systems.

The duration of the instructor training varies from person to person. If participants are fast learners and can implement principles and programs quickly, they might be able to proceed more rapidly than others. Study Group Leaders must also have the ability to convey key points of the concepts to practitioners. For the first instructor level (SAMI Study Group Leader) participants must have completed the first two student level exams.
Afterwards the participant can independently build their own training group or teach in their school as a SAMICS Affiliate.
Important: Regular and continued use of the Distance Learning platform is vital to your progression as an instructor.
