Foundation course: At the conclusion of the course a written and practical assessment, based on a case study, will be administered. This assessment is used to help with self-reflection of your understanding of the material and your ability to use it in a mock clinical situation.

Advanced course: Prior to the advanced course you will be required to take and pass (at 80% or better) an online multiple-choice examination based on the Foundation course material and clinical examples. On the final day of the Advanced course you are required to perform and pass (at 80% or better) a practical assessment based on the course material in a case study format. This assessment is evaluating your clinical decision making and rationale for the treatment you present. Upon successful completion of both, the Foundation and Advanced courses, you will be considered Certified in Integrative Dry Needling and can use the initials CIDN after your name.
