This hybrid training program has been approved by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association to continue providing training during the Covid-19 pandemic.

There are 3 segments to this training that must be completed before the trainee will receive their certificate of completion.
1) Trainee must complete all Live Zoom sessions, quizzes, and homework assignments.
2) Trainee must attend all in-person training hours (dates below)
3) Trainee will complete and pass all competencies in an in-person clinic under the supervision of the Registered Trainer. The trainee will also complete 40 treatments under the supervision of a Registered Trainer before their application will be sent to NADA for completion. You will have one year to complete your 40 supervised treatments. (I will help connect trainees with an ADS in their area if the need arises.
