Validation of level 3 is made with a written test of knowledge on the complete program, a pedagogical project and a practical session to set up and then perform, in connection with this project.

Validation of the Practitioner level (module 5): it is necessary to have carried out 10 sessions of TOP in individual and / or collective work with experts in TOP, referenced by us.

Issuance of the TOP Practitioner’s certificate co-signed by Dr. Edith PERREAUT, creator of the TOP technique and Laurent SAURIAT, expert in TOP.

Each validated unit remains acquired without time limit. Thus, the training can be spread over several courses or years of training.
Certification can be done at the IFPPC (French Institute of Psycho-Corporal Practices) in Paris.
Here is another institute where TOP are taught :

This first training will be held at the Bourgogne Franche Comté Innovation House, in partnership with TalentCampus
