What are the benefits of taking the course as the Distance Combined 18 Months or Self-Paced?

You study at 60% of the Full Intensive Course Load and are still Student Loan and Funding Eligible  for Full time Studies ​​while you finish your study over 18 months and attend the Instructor Led Online Seminars for questions and clarification.

As an 18 Month Student you can lengthen the time of your online study and organize your Onsite study for shorter periods that add up to 10 weeks per Scheduled Session and allow you to get your Case Study Sessions completed prior to finishing the program by distance.

The assignments have deadlines. You are required to study at a set pace and attend Online Seminars twice weekly. This ensures that you are on track, keeping up, and that any questions you have are answered by your Instructors quickly.

Self-Paced  You can focus on one line of therapy for certification in either Energy Medicine/Elemental Iridology or Oriental Bodywork/ Meridian Shiatsu without taking the whole diploma. This is a continuous entry and requires application to the CHHSP Diploma Program as a Part Time Student. This is continuous entry as space is available. This is NOT recommended for students who require supported learning or cannot self-schedule. Contact our Admissions Advisor for application and entry to Self-Paced Study.

Your Energy Medicine/Elemental Iridology/AUR only Investment is: $5,850.00 This offering is 33 weeks and is Funding Eligible

See Individual Course offerings for taking Specific Courses only. Self-Paced and Single Course offerings are credited towards the CHHSP Diploma, but may not be transferred into 11 or 18 month offerings due to pricing differences and discounts. Self-Paced Students wishing undertake the Full Diploma will be required to complete Modules as Individual Courses. All Titles include APPHHC and Ethics & Business.

If you are prone to procrastination or need assistance with your study habits, the Distance Combined forces you to keep up with your assignments. Remember Instructor Contact is provided even though you are not in  classroom.

You will become familiar with the students taking the course before you get practical/onsite studies. Many already forge friendships before meeting in person.

As an 18 Month Full Time Student, you are onsite for two 10 week sessions with a varying schedule, for your practical training. Allowing you a shorter duration onsite each session to continue working or less time away from your family. You will enter Case Studies confident that your skills are current and fresh and your Case Study Sessions will be completed.

The Distance portion of your learning can be done any time of day. Weekly seminars are scheduled Mondays at 6pm and either Wednesdays at 6pm or Thursdays at 10am Pacific Standard Time for 1 hour to help you schedule and clarify concepts.
