ZBA UK Certification Programme 2

“Successfully graduating as a recognised Zero Balancer has proven to be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable of my achievements.”

This sentiment is shared by a great number of students who have completed the Zero Balancing Certification Programme. Enrolment on this programme provides you with a focus and structure for the development of your Zero Balancing skills to a recognised standard of proficiency, and all the support you need to achieve this goal. And on graduation you will join a vibrant group of Certified Zero Balancers numbering almost 1,000 worldwide.

The programme is self-paced and therefore adaptable to your individual circumstances. Most students take between 18 months and three years to complete their studies and to graduate as a Certified Zero Balancer.
