Your Training Organiser/Administrator also submits a list of Graduates to AusTAB for their records. AusTAB shares this list with the respective Guilds where students are located. If you change countries, you can provide your FPTP Graduation Certificate to prove eligibility for membership.
A Guild is the local professional organisation – usually geographically bounded (e.g. The Australian Feldenkrais Guild or The New Zealand Guild). Membership is based on proof of graduation from an accredited FPTP, or Student Membership may be available for those currently enrolled in an FPTP. International membership may be available as an Affiliate.
Membership usually confers access to library resources, continuing education, peer-support, newsletters and advocacy. Guild activities vary from one country to another.
TABs are Training and Accreditation Boards. There are 4 globally – AusTAB (Austral-Asia); EuroTAB (Europe, Israel, and UK); D-TAB (Germany); NATAB (the Americas). They accredit training programs and faculty, based on international guidelines. They do not register individual members.
IFF – the International Feldenkrais Federation – is the international peak organisation for the Feldenkrais Method. Its members are predominantly the Guilds and TABs.
