GENERAL OVERVIEW

   *   No credit or reduction in cost or hours will be given for any previous training or education. A daily quiz and a comprehensive test at the end of the course will be given from I-ACT which demands high standards for passing.

   *   The Account for Student Indemnification per NRS 394.441, may be used to indemnify a student who has suffered damage as a result of: discontinuation of operation of a postsecondary educational institution licensed in Nevada, or the violation by such an institution of any provision of NRS 394.383 to NRS 394.560, inclusive, or the regulations adopted.

   *   The school and clinic are housed in the same facility. Therefore, it is imperative that students dress professionally and conservatively. If attendance is during the summer, it is recommended that students bring a light sweater as inside temperatures differ greatly from the summer heat in Las Vegas. The student will be asked to leave if dress is inappropriate. Please note, program includes cleaning of the facility; so choose attire carefully as we will be using bleach along with other chemicals.

   *   Food will be provided your entire stay while at LVCHSC. In accordance with the curriculum on Natural Foods, whole grain baked goods, seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables will be served daily for breakfast and snacks. The provided lunch will be a variety of vegetarian soups, salads, and healthy dishes – come taste how delicious learning can be! Note—there is a refrigerator, hot plate and crock pot available for students with special dietary needs.

   *   Job placement is not promised or guaranteed but resources will be provided when available.

   *   Students will be participating in the role of client as well as therapist in the clinical setting so each student will receive a hands-on experience unless a contraindication exists. Each student is evaluated on an ongoing basis in the classroom and clinical setting through lectures, question & answer periods, observation and demonstration. At the end of each unit, a written quiz is given. However, it is vital that each student relay understanding in the care of each client in which the instructor will be orally quizzing the student as well as observing implementation of principles into practice. Students are given letter-grades on quizzes which are reviewed in class then averaged. Each client evaluates the student through a series of questions which are then weighed as satisfactory or unsatisfactory. An evaluation of “Unsatisfactory” indicates that the student lacks the compassion and understanding to safely attempt the therapy without additional classroom study and one-on-one assistance. Students must pass the comprehensive exam with a minimum of 70% correct answers. Students with an overall “F” average are not eligible for readmission without completing the entire admission process. Students with a “D” average may be readmitted with a 50% reduction in tuition.
