How is the course run?

How long will it take me to train as a kinesiologist and naturopath?
The Classical Kinesiology Diploma course spans a period of two to three years of part-time study to attain Diploma status (including the CKI Foundation Course). It is a `roll on, roll off` course which means that the course can be taken over a longer period of time, eg. 4 years, or shorter - depending on the course schedule. The minimum time that the whole course could be achieved in would be approximately 20 months, but we would only recommend this if students was able to put sufficient time aside to fulfill all the practise and homestudy assignments.
