Students who want to work towards DNS Trainer certification must pass an online test after DNS Exercise course part II, and before taking DNS Exercise course part III.The online test consists of 30 multiple choice questions, 10 picture and 5 video questions. To pass the test the student must answer 32 out of the 45 questions correctly. The student gets a maximum of three attempts to pass the test. Students are recommended to retake DNS Exercise II course and then to take the
online test again in case of failing to pass the test on the three attempts. As soon as submitting the test the student receives results by email. Passing the online test is a prerequisite before taking the Practical test at the DNS Exercise Course part III, and being certified as a DNS Exercise Trainer.
Certification in DNS Exercise Course To ensure adequate practice with clients, this practical test can only be taken one year after completion
of the first DNS course (either DNS Exercise I or DNS A). You may still choose to take DNS Exercise III prior to that 1-year span. However, if you wish to take the trainer certification practical test, you will have to re-take Level III again and sit for the test. Also, completing an online test after DNS exercise II is a prerequisite for taking the practical test at DNS Exercise III course. When you earn your certification, you can choose to have your name listed on the Prague School Rehabilitation website for a one-time fee of 20 Euros. You are required to take at least 1 DNS course every 3 years to retain your certification status.
