Do you have a basic certification in veterinary acupuncture but want to take your acupuncture to the next level? Then this is the master class you have been looking for.
The western world has been working to put its own scientific explanations to the why and how acupuncture works and translate Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories into modern western understanding of how the body works. There is no single explanation or theory on how it works, but acupuncture seems to stimulate several physiological effects that seem to activate the body’s own homeostatic regulatory systems.
This course explores acupuncture from a modern, evidence-based perspective, with discussion of the use of acupuncture, explained through a neuro-physiological perspective, for a range of common veterinary medical conditions in small animals. In this rapidly developing area, effective evaluation and validation of research is important and will also be discussed.

All our courses are available to enrol at any time. Our courses are part time, self paced within the course timeframe, and fully online. Sometimes there is a scheduled start date for a course, in which we accept a group intake of enrolments. This encourages a cohort of students to move through the course together, making for a more interactive learning experience.
Although some courses have live sessions available, there are no live sessions that you are required to attend for any of our courses. Our courses are delivered online and are self paced within the course timeframe, to give you the greatest flexibility with your study. You can study anywhere, anytime that suits you. We have great learning tools such as lectures, comprehensive course notes, videos, online resources, discussion forum and continuous support from our highly qualified and experienced tutors to help you can get the most out of your course.
Please refer to our enrolment terms and conditions when seeking extra time in a course, https://civtedu.org/enrolment-terms-and-conditions
If you take a "leave of absence/deferral" from a course this freezes your progress in the course. You will have no access to the course during this time. A request for a leave of absence/deferral can be made for up to 3 months, initially. Longer periods of time away from the course can be reviewed after this time. If you want to use any course resources whilst you are taking your leave of absence/deferral you will need to download the material (such as documents, course notes, reading material) beforehand. There is no fee to take a leave of absence/deferral, however your regular payment instalments for the course will continue.
If you request an "extension" for a course, you may be given extra time in a course and still have full access to the course. An extension can be granted for up to, or equal to, the maximal period of study for that course. There is a fee involved in applying for an extension, this varies according to the amount of extra time requested and is found on the link provided.
This depends on the type of course you enrol in.
Our introductory or short courses require approximately 3-5 hours per week. Our Certifications and Graduate Diplomas require approximately 5-10 hours per week. This will vary amongst individuals, depending on the pace in which they learn. More time may be needed each week, depending on how long an individual needs to spend on completing assignments.
