As a workplace concern, EMF Wireless radiation is not ‘on the radar’ for many TCM practitioners but it should be! Current safety standards continue to be based on outdated threshold limits for THERMAL-ONLY biological effects.
As a result, EMF Wireless devices have proliferated the planet with totally inappropriate emission levels. These levels fail to integrate the growing weight-of-evidence warnings about the disastrous NON-THERMAL health effects!
Lloyds of London – the biggest Insurance market in the world – will not accept liability for ‘Wi-Fi Injury’ associated with Wi-Fi devices. Lloyds has done its homework on both THERMAL and NON-THERMAL effects and thresholds.
National standards are far from unified, especially since the release of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) Study in 2016. This crucial 10-year Study confirmed the causal link between tumours of the Brain and Heart and excessive exposure to 2G and 3G mobile phones. Now the world is facing the 5G threat which will add to the aggregate burden of EMF radiation from digital meters, routers, and wireless devices in the community.
EMF wavelengths cannot be effectively blocked but they can be avoided or have their impact lessened to a degree. TCM practitioners need to educate themselves on this urgent health and safety issue, even if it means learning new technical jargon and contradicting the public perception of safe-use technology. In this way, they have the chance to lead the health industry.
PLEASE NOTE: While this course does cover safety-related topics, it is not accredited by NCCAOM under the "Safety Category", but rather the "AOM-BIO" category.

Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.
If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.
Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.
If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
