It must be challenging to always capture attention with a mandatory ethics course, BUT you always manage to define things absolutely clearly and refresh my practice and personal knowledge. Thank you!

The reason I chose the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies was the ability to earn my CE online without driving to a specific location and spending extra money for gas/hotels/airfares. This course exceeded my expectations. Medical Errors material was immediately available online for me to read, and I could take the test on the same day as well. Everything was very easy and convenient. As far as my other CE, I will use the Institute for Integrative Healthcare for all of them. In overall, taking my CE online made my life so much easier!

I love taking these courses online. It's convenient, I study the material on my own time, it's informative and I appreciate that it is made available. Thanks for a very positive experience that is very relevant and high quality.

I have been a massage therapist for 8 years and have worked as an employee, as an independent contractor and on my own. I found the information very practical and concise. I am finally opening my own space and appreciate the insight and clarity on policies and procedures for the massage business. Loved it!

This answered several of my questions that I had. Like I didn't understand: If I just received my license last year and it is to be renewed every 2 yrs. Why do I have to renew it this year?
