The practical components of attaining a DTP Pregnancy Fitness Teacher Certification are available on our private YouTube channel. Those who successfully complete the teacher Study Course & Exam will receive the Basic Practicum Workbook as a PDF and be placed on the approved list for accessing the online video practicum on the private channel.
