Tasso International terms, conditions & graduation criteria

Registration

Registration is complete after the following steps:

  1. Filling out the application form on the website
  2. Having a videocall (or in person talk) with the Tasso International director and a mutual agreement to join the training
  3. Agreeing to the terms and conditions
  4. Making the payment for at least  the first module before the requested date

Payment

Tasso sends out an invoice for the training before the program starts. On the invoice the dates are mentioned on which the payments need to be received.

This is 1 month before the module starts, unless otherwise specified.  

Payment of the course includes:

  • Lessons online and in person
  • Digital handouts
  • Written exams*
  • Supervisions*
  • Verbatims
  • Homework group sessions
  • 6 x learning therapy with a Tasso therapist (to be appointed by Tasso International)
  • Digital practitioner certificate after Level 1 and printed diploma after Level 2 in case the graduation criteria are fully met.

* One re-examination is included in the price. If more are needed, an additional fee is charged. 

Students that repeat (part of) the Tasso International training pay a reduced fee. Those students only pay for the lessons as agreed upon. If they want to receive a diploma or join exams, supervisions or other parts of the curriculum they will need to pay an additional fee.

Missing lessons & cancellation policy

Participating in lessons

In person modules cannot be missed if the student wishes to receive a diploma. No more than 1 lesson of an in person module can be missed.

Live attendance of and active participation in the webinars is expected. If the student is not able to attend, they need to notify Tasso beforehand. Students are then expected to watch the recording at a later time, before the next module starts. If the student misses more than two online lessons, Tasso can require the student to make an assignment to show they caught up on the lessons. 

If practical lessons or exams (exercises, supervision and homework groups) are missed, students need to catch up at a later date. This may mean they will need to wait until a new batch has started, so receiving the diploma will also be at a later date.

Cancellation

Once joined the program Tasso expects the student to continue, unless the student notifies Tasso that they wish to not continue. 

The student has the right to cancel their registration until 1 month before the next module starts. This needs to be done in writing.

From 1 month up to 2 weeks before the module starts a 50% fee for the module is charged. From 2 weeks up to the start of the module a 100% fee is charged.

In case (part of) a module is missed and the fee is paid, the student can join the lessons free of charge with the following batch. Please note that there may be changes in the program in the next batch, in which case Tasso will try to find an appropriate solution with the student.

Modules and changes

Part of the modules are online, part are in person in the Netherlands.

Once the batch starts, we will do our best to keep the planning of the modules as scheduled and offer the students the opportunity to finish the program they started.

Only in rare cases we may need to make changes in the program or schedule:

  • In case the group is not (yet/anymore) big enough. In this case the group is notified at least 1 month prior to the start of the module.
  • For organisational reasons – for example the venue is not available anymore, there are technical issues in case of an online lesson or a teacher has fallen ill and cannot be replaced. For in person lessons, we will always make sure a teacher can be replaced.
  • In case of ‘Force majeur’: for a reason out of our control we cannot meet in person: like a natural disaster or a catastrophe such as war, or government restrictions.

In such cases we will try our very best to offer another solution, such as online or hybrid training, meeting at another location or on other dates.

In case a solution is not found, students will receive back their money for that lesson or module.

Cancellation insurance

Any costs for travel or accommodation made by students are at their own risk. Tasso recommends to book flexible accomodation or flights and take out cancellation insurance.

Finishing the course at a later time

Students that decide to stop the training before graduating, are allowed to return to the training within three years. The lessons followed and the exams done will remain valid through that time. If the student wishes to graduate at a later time, they will need to comply with the latest graduation criteria.

When a student cannot keep up with the amount of work, they may contact Tasso to agree on an alternative route, to may be spread the amount of work over a longer period and graduate at a later date.

Graduates or students that want to repeat lessons, pay a reduced fee. For webinars in 2024-2025 the amount is 125,- per webinar and for in person lessons, the fee is 250,-. Following the full course is at half price.

Catching up on missed lessons that were already paid for, is free of charge.

Finishing the course at the request of Tasso

Becoming a therapist is a big responsibility. Apart from the graduation criteria we will also monitor the students behavior. If there are strong doubts about the ethics or behaviors of a student, we will at first have a talk with the student to see if improvement is possible.

If we continue to have doubts, we may ask the student to leave the course. In that case the student gets reimbursed for the lessons they will miss. Other costs are for the students own risk.

Reasons for not letting a student graduate or finish a course may be: addictive behavior, not respecting boundaries, having a negative influence on the group or not willing to work on personal issues.

Books, handouts and materials

Books

Students are required to read the following books:

Level 1 and 2:

TenDam, Hans – Deep Healing and Transformation: A Manual of Transpersonal

Regression Therapy (2014)

Level 2:

TenDam, Hans – Exploring Reincarnation: The Classic Guide to the Evidence for

Past-Life Experiences (1987)

Copyright

Students will receive (digital) extra materials, such as handouts and power point presentations during the training.

Copyright of these materials belong to Tasso and/or the trainer.

The materials are meant for educational purposes, the student is not allowed to copy or share the materials with others. Any reproduction or use of the materials needs to be agreed upon with Tasso or in some cases the trainer.

Quotes are allowed, as long as the source is mentioned.

Privacy, confidentiality and recordings

Privacy and GDPR

Tasso conforms to the GDPR rules. We keep your personal data (name, address, email) only for administrative purposes and to inform you about the training. We will keep track of your results for the training and keep your data and reports for a minimum of 7 years in order to fullfil our duties for tax purposes and our recognition as a private school for professional education (CRKBO registration).

We expect students to be interested in other activities of Tasso Institute. Therefore we will send out a newsletter every once in a while to inform you about postgraduate trainings or other activities.

If you wish not to receive the newsletter, you can simply unsubscribe or notify us that you don’t want to receive it.

Webinars / online lessons

The online lessons are recorded by Tasso. Students get the chance to watch the video’s at least until the next module by streaming through either Zoom or Teams. These are not to be shared with others.

Lessons in person / in the Netherlands

Lessons at a physical location are in general not recorded and aren’t allowed to be recorded by students.

For the demo sessions the rule is: the client for the demo can make one recording (or a fellow student for the client) and can share it with the group. It is respected both by Tasso and the fellow student if the client doesn’t want to share it. Tasso will offer a space in Microsoft Teams to safely share the sessions.

Tasso may use anonimized sessions for educational purposes. If we wish to use an audio or video recording of a session we will always ask permission of the student or client.

Confidentiality

Students do exercises among each other and sometimes with external clients. In the group we do demo sessions with students.

We want students to feel safe in the group to share and work on their personal issues. Therefore confidentiality is required from all participants in the program. What is shared in the group, stays in the group.

Tasso teachers, supervisors, learning therapists or other employees respect the privacy and confidentiality of students. In case issues come up during the training or learning therapy that may be of influence on the progress of the student or on their suitability as a therapist, this can be discussed among staff members.

Working with clients

Students are required to practise with external clients (that are no Tasso students). Before the full diploma after Level 2 is received, students are obliged to notify their clients that they are still in training to become a recognized Tasso therapist.

Photo / video

Tasso will sometimes make photo’s and video’s for marketing purposes. Students that don’t want to be visible in those photo’s or video’s can always ask either the Tasso staff or the person making the photo’s or video’s to not be visible in the pictures. We do ask students in that case to avoid being caught on camera, for example not to take a front row seat at graduation day. For group pictures we will not ask specific permission to use it for marketing purposes. Close up photo’s, video’s or interviews are only used with permission of the student.

Grades

Grading of exams and supervision is done as follows:

Written exams

To pass an exam it must be graded sufficient/good. If it is mediocre, the next exam has to be at least sufficient/good. The last exam in Level 2 must always be sufficient/good.

Supervision / practical exam

Supervision is a practical exam. The student does a session with a fellow student or a volunteer client.

For supervision: the last supervision of each Level has to be sufficient/good. One of the other

supervisions can be mediocre, if more than one is mediocre, the student needs to do a re-examination.

Verbatim

Verbatims are sessions with an external client that are typed out word by word. Also there is an analysis of the session, according to the format given by Tasso.

Both verbatims (in Level 1 and 2) have to be graded at least sufficient/good.

Homework group analysis

Homework group sessions are meant for learning & exercise and are not graded.

Students practise under guidance and supervision of a coach/supervisor. The session is recorded with video or audio. The (learning) therapist makes an analysis of the session, using the form with questions that Tasso provides. This will be reflected upon with the coach/supervisor and the group in or before the next meeting.

Although the analysis is not graded, making & sending in the report is part of the graduation criteria.
