The guiding principle is that every Teacher who seeks recognition must deliver proof of the expertise required to obtain the equivalent ESA level. This can be done either by – i. taking a special examination as outlined in Teacher Training Manual S ection B, 1d OR ii. by submitting an application with documentation and videos as outlined in Appendix E2 Recognition of Teachers without Approved Accreditation 5. Teacher Membership of ESA Teachers are normally members of the ESA through the national Suzuki association in their country of residence. Where a country has no national association, Individual Associate membership of ESA will be offered - see ESA Website for details. B3 Membership is open to all interested Teachers regardless of their qualifications. B3 members are not entitled to call themselves SUZUKI™ teachers. B2 Membership (ESA Primary Certificate) is open to all SUZUKI™ Teachers who have obtained at least ESA Level 1 or had their qualification approved by the ESA as being equivalent to Levels 1 or 2. B1 Membership (ESA Intermediate Certificate) is open to Teachers who have taken at least ESA Level 3 or had their qualification approved by ESA as being equivalent to Level 3 or 4. A Membership (ESA Diploma) is open to all Teachers who have passed ESA Level 5 or had their qualifications approved by ESA as being equivalent to Level 5. 6. Teacher Directory Listings Teachers who have obtained approved qualifications in other Regions, or who have been specifically recognised by the ESA, may be listed in ESA in national directories with their equivalent level, followed by the abbreviated name of the regional association (e.g. 2 PPSA, 5 SAA). 7.
