FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete Level I: QI-50, Qigong Instructor certification program? In general about one year. If you take the Medical Qigong Online Intensive and one Medical Qigong Live Intensive close together, theoretically you could complete the entire level I, in just a few months. Also, if you have previously taken one of our Live or Online Medical Qigong Intensives then you may complete Level I in an even shorter time frame.
If I plan to complete Level I: QI-50 quickly but I already started the monthly payments – how does that work? Great question. You may complete the Level I: QI-50 training before the 12 months of payments are done, however we will wait for your official graduation and final documents to be sent once final payment is received. You may ask for a pay off amount if you would like to finish early. You may also begin Level II: QI-100 even before receiving your final documents for Level I: QI-50, but will not be eligible to graduate from Level II: QI-100 until you have officially graduated from Level I: QI-50.
So, I can keep making the 12 monthly payments for Level I: QI-50 and then begin Level II: QI-100? Yes, you are welcome to do it that way also. You just won’t be able to officially graduate (and receive all final documents) from either level until final payment is received.
How often do you make new Medical Qigong Live Intensives? Another great question. We make a new Medical Qigong Live Intensive every one to two years. You may repeat any of our Live Medical Qigong Intensives for additional Qigong Awareness credit towards any of our Level Programs. The NCCAOM, CA Acupuncture Board, FL Acupuncture Board, CE Broker, FL Massage Board, NCBTMB and Texas Medical Board have approved each of our intensives to provide students credit one time each.
How often do you make a new Online Medical Qigong Intensive? Every one to two years. We create a new Medical Qigong Live Intensive and then record it and make it into an Online Medical Qigong Intensive.
