Here is what one student is saying:
‘I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outstanding prep-work you provided us with for the TCM Pan-Can Board Exam and I am pleased to tell you that our whole 5th year class at our college has passed. Yeeeeha! We are all super happy and are submitting our CTCMA / CTCMPAO as we speak.
Your course allowed us to focus on the most relevant aspects of TCM for passing this board exam and it is worth every single dime. I would like to give you a big hug and thank you again for designing the TCM BootCamp so thoughtful, concise, interactive and fun.’
Bootcamp Student, 2016-2017
The Bootcamps were designed to be taken in succession. In fact, the Bootcamp series was originally requested by my students as they relayed exactly what they needed come board exam time. As it turns out, they were absolutely correct as this powerful combo results in a 90-95% pass rate!
USA students – this package would be equivalent to covering most of your study materials for your Foundations, Points and Herbology exams.
This R.TCM.P. full bootcamp package includes (please note that this package does not include the live Bootcamp #1 workshop. If you are looking for the live bootcamp 1 as well, please click here: Live Bootcamp 1 + R.TCM.P. Full Bootcamp Package):

2) Bootcamp #2 is to be taken around a month or so before both your written and cases exams, or at least when you feel like you are mostly studied. This is the bootcamp that takes you through a large series of tests to ensure that you know everything that you should for your exam.
3) Bootcamp #3 is normally taken a month or two before the case studies exam in the new year. However, this bootcamp can also be taken at any time, from your second year of college, to your years as a developing practitioner. This is your bootcamp to learn HOW to break down any TCM case study, for simple to complex, and you own it for life!
