Private and small group trainings organized all over Perú and Latin America.
What is a PRIVATE TRAINING?
The IAKP Private Trainings are an alternative to the larger groups. They can be organized as one-on-one courses, or in small groups of up to 4 students. If you have any others that are interested in joining the class, everyone would save considerably on training fees. The course can be done in 10 to 12 days and can be taught in English or Spanish. The teacher is bilingual and the manuals can be printed in both languages.
Private trainings can be organized at any time throughout the year and everywhere, depending on the availability of the teacher and students.
Advantages of Private Training:
- Personal attention: In private training the teacher is able to note areas of struggle and give individual-specific assistance.
- Pursue individual interests: Since there are no other students, more time can be invested in specific subjects of interest.
- Instruction based on learning styles: Every student learns a different way. Some are aural, some are visual, some are hands-on, etc. In a group setting its hard to offer such individually tailored instruction to everyone… but in private training it is much easier.
- You can ask the teacher for as much correction and as many explanations as you want without worrying about the other students in the class.
- You can go at your pace – if it’s too fast, slow down! Too slow? Speed up!
- The advantage of larger vs smaller groups is that there is less opportunity to experience other people’s processes and limited group interaction.

Please do not take BUFO or IBOGA at least 8 weeks before the training.
