FAQ

  • How long do I have access for?

    You will have access to your course videos for 10 months.

  • What if I need more time?

    If your exams are still ahead of you, then you can email us at any time for free video access extensions. We want to be able to accommodate students who start studying at all different times.

  • When should I start my study?

    Students can start at all different times depending on their life and school schedules. Regardless of how students study (some students need a long and slow study, while some need more of a cramming type of study) we HIGHLY recommend that you consider starting your study in your 2nd year of college. We have 100% pass rates for students that start then, as it is truly a massive study! Either way, please be sure to start at least 4 months before your R.Ac. exam so that you can follow the study schedule as closely as possible and be sure that you get everything in before your exam.

  • Do I need to be graduating college before I take the Bootcamps?

    No! In fact, we encourage students in their 2nd year to get started as it is truly a massive study. We have a 100% pass rate with students who start early, so do consider it as you own your Bootcamps until your exams are behind you!

  • Do I need to be writing a board exam in order to take the Bootcamps?

    You don't! MANY practitioners take the Bootcamps to refresh their knowledge. Being a strong practitioner is all about a strong grasp of your foundational knowledge. We encourage practitioners to join the Bootcamps to increase their clinical confidence.

  • Do I have access to the instructors if I have questions?

    Absolutely! We have both a virtual classroom option where you can ask your questions to the instructor and have them answered live, OR, you can always post your question on the discussion boards to receive your answer at any time.

  • Do I need to purchase the printed guidebooks?

    This isn't a necessity, but we highly recommend it. Not only are they incredibly comprehensive and perfect to follow along with your videos and take notes in, but you will also use these for many years in your clinical practice! Please note that if you are adding on Biomedical Bootcamp and are taking the RTCMP or RTCMH, then we highly recommend that you purchase the Biomedical Bootcamp guidebook along with your course as the herbal formulas are only in the guidebook (not on video).

  • Are the TCM Illnesses included in this Bootcamp?

    No. The TCM Illnesses are included in Biomedical Bootcamp for 2 reasons: 1. They are part of the Biomedicine section in your Pan-Canadian handbook. 2. They are taught alongside Biomedicine using cross comparisons and so that you can see diseases + TCM internal medicine together. Please join Biomedical Bootcamp + purchase the Biomedical Bootcamp guidebook if you would like a thorough review of the TCM Illnesses as well.

  • Will I receive a certificate upon completion?

    After successfully finishing all video lessons, quizzes, and tests with a minimum score of 70% on each quiz or test, the system will automatically issue a certificate of completion. Please be aware that any quiz or test scores falling below 70% will result in the system marking that specific unit as incomplete. This passing grade requirement mirrors the Pan-Canadian standard for a successful outcome.
