This information is presented in the best format for clear understanding. I wouldn't change anything about the material or presentation of it at this time.

- B. Nason, LMT, NCTMB

I have been a massage therapist for 13 years which makes it difficult to find information I haven't heard before. This was probably the most comprehensive course I have taken and it also has some good NEW information.

- A. Mowery, LMT

The information acquired in this course was informative and has definitely changed my perspective as a healthcare practitioner. Wouldn't change a thing.

- S. Vanderpol, LMT

This is the first time I have done my CEUs online, and I will definitely be doing it again! Thanks for making it so user friendly.

- W. Fernandez, LMT, NCTMB, AMTA

This was the best choice for me to meet the CEU requirements for my LMT license renewal. It was quick, efficient, and easy to understand! It was just what I needed; I had no complications at all! Thanks!

I was very pleased with the information and only missed a couple of questions, that was just slip of the finger, other wise it was just fine. Thank you Kory !

As you know we are required to take this class every 2 years. So it is a familiar topic. However I liked the presentation of the course and the review was clear and to the point.

facts well-presented and organized

- Rosemarie Law, LMT

Great material

- David Asprey, LMT

I particularly liked how after all the information given, and at the end of the last section which was particular information for massage therapist, considering to be sympathetic, empathetic, and considerate to the patient or client was emphasized to remind us that they are equal human beings to us and not to be treated insignificantly or less than in any way because of their HIV staus. It also suggested that if a practitioner for any reason cannot perform the massage for any technical or biased reason, to make sure the patient or client rightfully gets the treatment they need and deserve by referring them to another practitioner.

- David Hirt, LMT

Very informative. Keep up the good work!

- Robert Griffin, LMT

Very informative and one of the most thorough HIV/AIDS classes I have taken so far.

- Rebekah Owens, LMT, NCTMB

Great course

- Michele Bruce, LMT, NCTMB

Clear and concise, nicely put together presentation

- Darrick Hill, LMT

Short, easy, to the point. Don't change a thing.

- Brennan Peroutka, LMT

This course is definitely informative, but I have to update myself with HIV/AIDS information every year for my full time job, so most of this was review for me. For the average person, it would be very helpful to read this information.

- Lisa Martin, LMT

I appreciate that the content was presented in an objective, nonjudgmental manner. No discrimination in relation to sexual orientation or sexual behaviors was present. I have a family member living with AIDS, and have seen how hurtful ignorance and judgment (even from healthcare workers) can be.

- Crystal Guengerich, LMT

The course was helpful.

- Namia Hallman, LMBT

Well written and to the point.

- Lynne McGowan, LMT, NCTMB

This course was perfect for me since I wanted the newest information regarding AIDS.

- Rebecca Young, LMT

Very informative and well written materials and test

- Maria Barbieri, LMT

The information was clear and easy to understand.

- Marc A. Goodman, LMT

The course presented pertinent information in a clear concise manner.

- Debora Murphy, LMT

I really appreciated that the test questions were not all in order corresponding to the course material. That requires students to read the text more closely which leads to better retention. Much of this was familiar information, and some was new, which was most welcome in a 1 hour course. Thanks!

- Cynthia Frey, LMT, NCTMB

Once again this information is compiled in a logical way. It is a very good refreshment of my knowledge on HIV/AIDS facts and understanding. I will use Integrative Healthcare courses for any future requirement. I will most definitely return to review this material I have tested on throughout the year!

- Bernadette Carlton, LMT

Information was clear and to the point. It kept my interest, and I felt I learned quite a bit, and was refreshed on information I had learned previously.

- Andrea Karnatz, LMT

I chose this course as it was a bit shorter so I could do it in one sitting with my kids home. Additionally, since it has been 16 years since graduating, I wanted to let go of any mis-information we may have learned. It was concise and well written. I will recomend your course to colleagues. Thank you for the CMTO list of approved credits for each.

- Heather Beck, RMT

Great Information, clear and precise! Very informative and great content.

- Angela Williams, LMT

Really liked the overall content and the way it was presented. Also the questions & how they were asked, that helped to allow the information in the material to "sink in" for my own life & for friends. It felt like it helped in "repeating" certain facts about HIV/AIDS that are so good/important to remember. I think the content is good to repeat every 2 years. Well done!

- Janine B. Ivory, LMT, BCTMB

Great to review this material. It is a good idea to periodically refresh my memory!

- Rebecca Atwell, LMT

Excellent material - as always. This particular course was highly readable. Very much to the point and most useful. Sharon Burch is a gifted educator.

- William J. Hout, LMT
