Important Notice Please Read
Hello fellow students,
As we all navigate through the unexpected pandemic of the Corona Virus (COVID-19), we face new challenges daily. We are forced to rearrange our lives to accommodate the order to shelter in place, social distancing as well as other instructions in an effort to stop the spread of this devastating virus.We want to assure you that California Institute of the Healing Arts & Sciences will continue to offer the highest level of Complimentary Alternative Medicine Training during this time. We would like to go over a few changes we are making that affect your education access.
First and foremost, we will not be meeting in person. Our staff has worked diligently to make accommodations to bring our courses to a live online platform. This letter will cover the details of the live training, access, what to expect and any additional materials you may need.
When is the next class scheduled?
We have postponed class until April 25th in order to accommodate schedules, get things in order and for our students to prepare for virtual learning. Eventually, when the shelter order is lifted, we will meet in person at the school for hands on instruction.
We will continue to hold classes on Saturday’s from 9am to 4pm. We are asking that you please be on time for these classes. You will receive an invite 30 minutes before class starts (8:30 am) and the instructor will be online 5 minutes prior. Breaks will be every 10 minutes before the hour, 10 minutes each. Lunch is from 12:30pm to 1:30pm.
We will be using Zoom.us for our live online classes
Zoom is a very well known online screen sharing platform that is user friendly and reliable.
Please run a test on your device (desktop, laptop, tablet, phone) to make sure you have access prior to your first online class. This link will direct you to zoom to run the test, download the app. etc. https://zoom.us/test
We have technical support to help you if you are not computer savvy or just need a little help getting started. Please click contact us at the bottom of the page and let us know. We are here to help make this transition as smooth as possible.
Equipment you will need
We require all students to have a webcam & microphone. *If you do not have video & audio capability, please let us know ASAP.
A printer with ink is necessary in order to print handouts. *If you do not have a printer, please let us know ASAP. If you cannot print, you can save the documents and print at a later time.
Things to keep in mind while attending online classes
Please make sure you have a quiet space so you can hear the instructor with limited distractions. We understand some of you may have children at home, pets etc. and it may be a difficult request. Working / Learning from home may not be what you’re used to, so if you need to make accommodations, now is the time.
Make sure your workstation is ready and you are comfortable.
Please be considerate of others. Mute your audio when you are not speaking and if you have the ability to limit the background visibility, that would be best. You will be interacting with the instructor and fellow students, so if you have a lot going on in the background, it could be distracting to others.
Have fun! We are in this together and together we will overcome. Healers will be needed more than ever before, so continuing your education is extremely important.
We would like to take a survey to see what device you are using, please click contact us at the bottom of the page and let us know.
Life goes on, and our world needs healers now more than ever before. With closures of schools, people unable to work, shelter in place orders, and the amount of stress the pandemic of COVID-19 is causing, we need to join together and raise our vibrations to spread emotional, physical and spiritual healing.
Sending love, light and positive energy from the entire staff at California Institute of the Healing Arts & Sciences!
