The RMTi Curriculum has two introductory level courses, and there are two paths that consultants can take to become introductory level instructors. 

Path 1:  Essentials Instructor

Path 2:  Rhythm, Movement and Play Instructor

If you are interested in only passing on the essential elements of RMTi to your colleagues, parents, etc. to explain what you are doing in your sessions, you can become an Essentials of RMTi instructor. This is 3 to 4 hour introductory course.

The other alternative is to become a Rhythm, Movement & Play (RM & P) instructor - this is a one day introductory class which provides a more in-depth experience of RMTi. You can choose to remain a RM & P instructor, or use it as the first step to becoming a RMTI Level One & Two Instructor.
