This module is the first of a series that provides you with the essential tools to expand your acupuncture practice to include treating babies and children. The first lesson will cover the two basic types of child; Shi - exuberant children with plenty of energy and Xu - those who don’t have quite enough. This provides the foundations for understanding what illnesses a child may be predisposed to. Secondly, because good digestion is essential for healthy development of babies and children, "Accumulation Disorder" (congestion and overloading of the digestive system) will be addressed with reference to Spleen Qi deficiency. This module is a perquisite to all other modules which addresses specific health conditions.

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.
