Required Study Material
To study and prepare for the RTS Certification all candidates must read and view the following material prior to attending the Clinic. This will ensure a better understanding of the subject.
- The Pose Method of Running (book) To get started with the Pose Method you must get familiar with the essence of the method, its history, its fundamental structure. The best way to do that is to read the Pose Method® of Running written by Dr. Romanov.
- The Running Revolution (book) Written for runners, this book provides coaches with additional information on client training, creating training programs, structuring training sessions and classes.
- 12 Week Transition Program (Video Program) This transition program was developed to help anyone on any level at any point to transition to Pose running. It provides clear and detailed information on the fundamental structure of the Pose Method of running and reinforces it with visuals, and demonstrations of practical application.
The certification process was developed to ensure the candidates are properly prepared for the certification examination and are prepared for the ‘technique specialist’ designation.
Studying the required and additional material is your first step on the way to getting Pose Method® Certified. We have provided you with everything you will need to help you study for the Running Technique Specialist Certification Clinic and to take the Online Exam.

ABOUT THIS SEMINAR
This 2-day course is designed for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants to learn how to use video analysis and running technique assessment tools to analyze running gait, movement patterns and identify deviations from the standard established by the Pose Method framework.
Prevention of running related injuries, significant reduction in eccentric knee loading, and the necessity of improvement of running technique as well as its connection to a successful course of treatment will be discussed.
Participants will also learn how to use specific corrective technique drills and strength exercises to develop a clear and reliable course of action to improve pain and disability associated with the chronic exertional compartment syndrome. Related scientific research and clinical studies will be presented.
“The course was one of the best I’ve taken. Dr. Romanov is a genius and I think his teaching is so relevant to our profession. I think I can speak for everyone when I say we all got a lot out of the class.”
– Jessica DePalma, DPT,
