Continuing Professional Development - Short Courses

Acupuncture School Ireland (ASI) runs short courses for qualified Acupuncturists and healthcare practitioners looking to further develop their skill set and broaden their knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Continuing Professional Development training means TCM professionals have a wider variety of appointment options on offer for their patients and can complement their existing clinical expertise. Enhancing a repertoire of TCM knowledge with our postgraduate courses can also see improved patient outcomes.

All of our courses can be claimed as CPD hours, certificates are awarded on the day and training is provided by our very own experienced faculty, all practicing acupuncturists themselves. The courses are either a day or weekend workshop combining lectures and practical application and we strive to accommodate the individual learning needs and any specific requirements for students within the course.
