It is the aim of the BBEC to assist the public in choosing a Buteyko Educator that meets their needs and who has been trained to recognized levels of competence, who is experienced, covered by insurance and is a member of a registering body that enables the public to access a formal complaints procedure. At present there is little or no control or validation of anyone calling themselves a Buteyko practitioner.
The establishment of the BBEC will overcome this problem and give the public a safe, reliable source of information of a high professional standard that befits the Buteyko movement.
Currently there are many groups of Buteyko Practitioners outside Russia, the BIBH (Buteyko
Institute for Better Health) the formal registering body of Australia & New Zealand, the BBEA (The Buteyko Breathing Educators Association) the USA formal registering body, the  BBA (Buteyko Breathing Association) a group of physiotherapists and nurses trained in the Buteyko Method, and many more independent teachers who. The public cannot easily differentiate between highly trained Buteyko educators and those who have taken on the title with very little training. This is an unacceptable situation in any professional body. 
Many Russian Doctors have suggested Buteyko Practitioners may teach the Buteyko Method to three levels:
Level One teaches the patient how to reach a Control Pause of between 25 and 35, this allows them to take better control of their asthma with reduced medication. This may take only a few days of training.
Level Two teaches the patient how to achieve a Control Pause of between 35 and 45, which gives greater health benefits through better oxygenation of the body tissue and general improved metabolism and chemistry. This level may be reached in weeks or months.
Level Three teaching takes patients to a CP of 45 to 60 and over. This may reverse pathological changes over time and maximises health & wellbeing. This level takes months or with older patients even years, so be patient, the effort is worth it!
