I see that this is the place to not only to learn to but to prove yourself that you can earn more talents. It takes time to add up and understand but those who are interested. Good luck.

It's a long course. And you might have to wait a week or 2 just to complete a requirement as it is dependent on reviewing other's work.

I have learned a lot from additional reading assignments. I did not like the power points - they were read fast and often mistakes were done while reading. I believe that instructors have an immense knowledge on the subject, based on their credentials and experiences, however, I could not witness to that from the power points presentations. I think that this course is a good starter if you are thinking on completing other courses to gain full certification.

I was intimidated by the concepts of integrative therapies and wasn't sure how to get started. This course gave me a strong, solid foundation in the theory, principle, and practice. The course was very well-organized and gave you appropriate links to further your understanding, even teaching you to analyze if a site is reputable so you can further your own studies without bias and/or misinformation. The instructors are fantastic, concise and yet thorough at the same time. I really can't believe this class is free!

The only issue I have is that your work needs to be peer-reviewed, so if you can't get the reviews, then you can't complete the class!

This course was a good Introduction to the topic. I have some experience in Integrative medicine. The review was great for the portions i was familiar with and the new material was very interesting. The Peer review project was a good challenge.

I don't see the Continuing education noted on the certificate.

I loved this course! The only issue I had is that the instructor(s) speak a little too fast and their words get jumbled so I've had to stop and replay sooo many times to understand the videos. Otherwise, its a terrific course and I'm excited to take the other 4 courses that go with this one!!

I really liked the course, the selected content, the relevance and seriousness of the classes, the learning sequence and the teachers. Being from another country, I appreciate the clear view they gave on how complementary techniques are viewed in the US.

Thank you very much.

This course was so helpful, knowledge filled, and was paced perfectly for those who just needed an introduction. It was great that it also allowed for hands-on written activities to apply your own knowledge as you go.
