What makes PRATI’s KAP training different from other similar courses?

Unlike many groups providing KAP training, PRATI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As such, we have a guiding mission, vision, and purpose that shapes our approach to KAP education. We have been offering KAP trainings since 2019 and have an experienced and passionate team of staff and faculty dedicated to this work. Additionally, our immersive retreat-style format offers a personally transformative experience along with a comprehensive grounding in the foundations of ketamine and psychedelic medicine.

Do you offer CE/CEUs?

We are not currently accredited to formally offer CEUs for our training programs. We can, however, provide trainees with a statement and summary of training hours (approximately 20) after successful completion of our course, upon request.

Can I stay off site?

We require participants to stay on-site at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, CO, throughout the duration of the training to ensure safety and support group cohesion.

Can family and friends stay with me at Sunrise Ranch?

We do not allow family and friends to stay with you at Sunrise Ranch while you are in your training experience, as this is disruptive to the container.

How much are accommodations?

Current accommodation prices are linked here. There are a variety of options from camping, dorm style arrangements, and private rooms in shared apartments. Accommodation fees include: dinner at 6:00 p.m. on the day of check-in, three farm-to-table meals for each full day of your stay, breakfast and lunch on the day of check-out, and daily tea and coffee service in the dining area.

Can I choose who I room with at Sunrise Ranch?

If you would like to share a room with a specific PRATI trainee, you can make this request when you register online for accommodations with Sunrise Ranch.

Will there be opportunities to hike or explore nature?

There are numerous hiking trails on the property at Sunrise Ranch. Our training program schedule offers various blocks of free time to explore and connect with nature, should you feel called to.

I have dietary restrictions. Will there be food I can eat?

Sunrise Ranch offers a wide variety of meals that accommodate most dietary restrictions (dairy free, gluten free, paleo, vegetarian, vegan) and you will have a chance to specify any other specific nutritional needs when registering online for accommodations with Sunrise Ranch.

What can I expect during the ketamine experientials?

Our training programs include two supported ketamine experiences on the second and third days of the course. The experiential component of these trainings is optional but encouraged. Participants will work in dyads and will be offered the opportunity to receive ketamine through both the intramuscular and sublingual routes of administration. Fasting for at least 4 hours prior to receiving ketamine is required. 

What time does the course start and end?

The course begins at 8:45 a.m. on the first training day and ends at 3:00 p.m. on the final day of training.

My flight leaves before the end of the training on the last day. Will this be a problem?

Occasionally our trainees have travel arrangements which require them to leave Sunrise Ranch before we formally close at 3:00 p.m. on the final training day. In order to receive your completion certificate, please ensure you are able to stay until at least 12:00 p.m. on the closing day to meet our training requirements.

How can I get to Sunrise Ranch from the Denver airport?

For details on recommended transportation service between Denver International Airport and Sunrise Ranch, please refer to the information provided in the document linked here.

What opportunities are there for collaboration after the training ends?

PRATI is committed to supporting the growth of communities of practice among our alumni. Upon completion of one of our training programs, alumni can join an email listserv of past KAP trainees for connection and collaboration opportunities. You will also be invited to create a free profile on our directory of KAP providers.
