There are several things of which you need to be aware and a few necessary actions required to prepare yourself for transitioning to the new PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor (CTRI) credential.  
You must complete transition to the CTRI credential with your 2020 renewal and no later than December 31, 2020, to maintain active PATH Intl. certification into 2021.

Get started by completing payment for the CTRI Maintenance Fee to initiate enrollment in the online test. (Please allow three business days for enrollment.)

Once you’ve successfully passed the test, fill out the CTRI Transition Form and email it to certificationcompliance@pathintl.org to finish the transition process. It’s that simple! Questions? Contact Brittney Holdman .
