  1. The Basic Certification course was moved to a later date, tentatively October 1 to November 22, 2013. As for the fee, kindly email for details. And yes, the course will run for 8 weeks straight.

  2. Hello there.
    I would like to clarify the course fee for non scholars of Hong Center. Is it the same USD 1300? I checked the Hong Center website and the course fee for Bobath Pediatric 8 week program is USD6000.
    Please advise
    Thank you very much.

  3. Hi Guys,

    Just wanted to clarify if the basic course for Bobath will consistently imposed the 8 weeks duration of study. I am interested to attend but I am working from Legazpi City as Rehab.Specialist for Children with delays.
    Thank you.
