In the ABMI Practitioner Training Program, the graduation requirements include:
- Full Attendance in all In-Person (IP) training segments with a maximum 5 missed training days
- Completion in full of the Online (OL) training segments; each of the OL training segments to be completed within the allotted time and prior to the next IP segment

Trainees will be given ongoing feedback during class, throughout the training programs, and in person, when deemed necessary. Successful completion of the program is dependent on positive reviews for each session and the trainee’s ability to learn, perform and teach both group movement lessons (TML) and individual movement lessons (FS) observed throughout the training segments and during the supervised practicum sessions.
When a trainee is behind in their ability to perform, a trainer will discuss the situation with them and suggest possible ways for them to remedy the situation. This may include private study with an instructor, which may incur additional cost for the trainee. Trainees will be given a period of time in which they will be expected to remedy the situation in order to continue with the training and be eligible for graduation.
All trainees are required to sign a licensing agreement before graduation for the right to use the name “Anat Baniel Method®” and NeuroMovement®, and to represent themselves as an Anat Baniel Method NeuroMovement Practitioner, Anat Baniel Method for Children with Special Needs Practitioner, Anat Baniel Method for Vitality & Anti-Aging Practitioner, and Anat Baniel Method for High Performers Practitioner.*
The licensing agreement provides the graduates with benefits such as being listed on the ABM Practitioner listing on the Anat Baniel Method website and having the right to use Anat Baniel Method written materials (with written permission from Anat Baniel Method).
