RMTQI versus TTQI

What is the difference between a Registered Medical Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor (RMTQI) and  Traditional Tai Chi and Qigong instructor?

 

-  Traditional Tai Chi and Qigong instructors (TTQI) are individuals who teach Tai Chi and/or Qigong for health promotion in community. For example, they may run a Tai Chi and/or Qigong school or academy in a local community and teach Tai chi and Qigong to community members.

 

-  A Registered Medical Tai Chi and Qigong instructor (RMTQI) is someone who is qualified to teach or prescribe Tai Chi and/or Qigong as complementary therapies, along with standard medical care, to people who have medical conditions.  To register  for the membership category of RMTQI, a traditional Tai Chi and Qigong instructor is required to demonstrate their knowledge and skills of medical aspects of Tai Chi and Qigong, and if needed, can be assisted to complete additional basic training in  medical science units.
