Frequently Asked Questions
|Are there any entrance requirements to enroll?|
What happens after I order a course and what do the courses consist of?
Can I transfer other courses taken previously to your school?
Students may request an evaluation of credits by submitting documentation of other classes completed to the admissions office. Up to two classes will be accepted. The courses must be comparable to a course required for the program you are entering.
What can I do with the training I receive and who takes your courses?
Many students share holistic healing methods with their friends, family, and clients. Some may bring their skills to a chiropractic center, holistic healing center, spa, hospital, or ministry.
Many choose to volunteer in their community and use their
new skills to help heal those in need. Some choose to write,
give lectures or workshops, open a new age center or holistic
Some of our students are nurses,doctors, ministers,
authors and licensed therapists who want to add a holistic
approach to their already thriving practice. Others have the
desire to grow spiritually, are seeking an answer to a health
problem or want to help a family member in need.
Our goal is to provide alternative healing information
and spiritual growth to those who seek it with the hope
they will be a mentor to those in their community who can
benefit from this knowledge. We are not a vocational school
or an employment agency.

I live in another country, can I still take a course?
Yes, anyone can order our courses and programs no matter where they live. Some courses are available online. The student receives their own password protected website where he or she can do all the work online or print it out and study where ever they choose. There are no shipping fees for online
classes so no wait time to access the material.
We also offer international shipping for classes not available online. However shipping fees are higher so please contact us for more information.
Why are the courses so cheap?
We want to be able to offer the courses to everyone, no matter what their circumstances are. Most of the instructors have had some type of challenge or needed help in some way and someone was there for them. We want to make it easy for the student to find help. We can also keep the prices down for the courses by limited phone contact. Phone contact is more time consuming that email contact. The students work with their instructor by email allowing the instructor to help many students in a shorter period of time. We also handle most admission issues in email. However, if you need to talk to an admissions adviser, simply use the contact form and an admissions adviser will call you shortly.
