Tuning Fork Certification Course Outline


Course Expectations

Our Tuning Fork Practitioner Certification Course is designed to be “group-paced” over a period of 6 months. This means every student starts and ends each month together so we can motivate and support each other throughout the entire course. This page explains the details of a typical course structure including the manner in which we provide monthly content, minimum expected time for study and practice, live events, and the entire 6-month curriculum separated into monthly areas of focus.

Drip-fed Content: Through our internal Learning Management System (LMS) your content for each month will be made available just prior to the beginning of the next month. So you will only experience the curriculum one month at a time and maintain a focus on the content for the current month. A progress quiz will be available on the last week of each month to mark the end of the monthly curriculum. This progress quiz is not pass or fail. It will provide you and your trainer with valuable feedback over areas of review and set areas of continued focus for the next month. Drip-fed content is a requirement for this course regardless of experience of each student. No exception will be made to allow for early access to future content.

Live Zoom Events: We will provide an opportunity to meet live at least twice a month. Our trainer will provide you with a link to connect through an online conferencing software called Zoom. When accessing the live events through the Zoom software, you may be asked by the software to download the necessary files to access the Zoom conference on your computer. You will not be required to appear on live video or speak over live audio. Zoom has a chat function for communicating in real-time during the live event. You will also not be required to attend these live events. A recording of each live event will be made available in your course curriculum to review at your convenience. Content discussed during the live events (and recording) will be included in the monthly progress quiz. Additional live Zoom events can be added to the schedule to enhance the learning experience. However, these extra events will not be on the monthly progress quiz. Since the students of this class are located in many locations throughout the world, no specific time of day will benefit all students. Times and dates for live events will be determined after the start of class.

Minimum Required Class Time: This course has been designed for students to focus on content, study, and practice time for a minimum of 5 hrs per week for a total of 20 hrs per month. The curriculum each month is divided into four areas of focus: Fundamentals, Body Systems, Protocols & Techniques, and Business Development. Your monthly 20 hrs has been spread across these four areas plus a fifth hour designated for practicing a homework assignment based on the content for the month. The 15 hrs of focus on curriculum for the month can vary each month since we focus more on Fundamentals early in the course and Protocols & Techniques later in the course. Students have flexibility in which to focus on their 20 hrs of minimum class time throughout the month. Live events, communication with the trainer and other students, progress quizzes, paperwork for documenting case studies or homework, additional research, and bonus materials are not included in this 20 hr minimum class time.

Bonus Time: In addition to the minimum required class time, we may provide additional bonus content to enhance the learning process. Bonus content is not factored into the minimum 20 hr content and practice time nor will bonus content be included in the progress quiz.

Communication with trainer and students: Each class will be connected through a private Facebook group for the purpose of communicating with each other for motivation and support. Only students from your class will be invited to this Facebook group, and there are no requirements to participate in group communication in the Facebook group. However, group announcements will be communicated and discussed using this format. Students may choose to communicate privately and directly with the trainer through Facebook Messenger or the designated email for class communication.

Flexibility of course content and timeline: Each course will be unique based on the cumulative knowledge and experience of the students in each class. We will make every effort to follow the course curriculum and timeline, but we also reserve the right to make modifications throughout the course for the purpose of enhancing the learning experience and the ability to react to each unique class. When and where possible, we will stay within the minimum time guidelines so we do not place an additional time burden on the students. If a modification is made to the course curriculum and expected content no longer fits within the minimum timeframe of study and practice, we will still provide the content as bonus materials.

Total Expected Class Time (per month): Content and practice = 20 hrs; Live events = 2 hrs; Progress quiz = 1 hr; Communication = 1 hr; Total per month = 24 hrs[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator style=”double”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
