Applicants must have completed a minimum of 150 hours of personal depth psychotherapy over a period of at least two years prior to commencing the training programme. If these 150 hours were completed with a Jungian analyst, 100 hours will count towards the total number of analytic hours required for certification.
A total of five ninety minute seminars will take place during training weekends every second month (from Friday evening through Sunday lunch time), amounting to six weekends per year. These seminars will take place at the C G Jung Centre in Rosebank, Cape Town over a period of four years.

The curriculum includes basic concepts, complexes, archetypes, connection of Jungian concepts to psychodynamic theories, a Jungian view of psychopathology, analytic technique (including dream interpretation and active imagination), typology, transference and counter-transference, transcultural issues, developmental theory and aspects of psycho-neurobiology as it applies to clinical practice.
