Students will be encouraged to use a variety of tools to prepare for exams including quizzes, study guides and practice sessions. ​
100% attendance at in person training is now optional. *See below. In the event that a life event prevents a participant from being able to attend in person training, training at another location or the following year may be arranged under some circumstances. Students who are attending births will be asked to make backup doula/practitioner arrangements during in person training so they can attend. 
80% attendance in live online seminar training is required. Students will be evaluated on participation in addition to attendance. 

Students will be graded on attendance, participation, assignments, written and practical exams and practical session records for reflexology and Reiki.

An overall grade of 80% is required to receive the By the Moon Holistic Reproductive Practitioner certificate. 

Location, Dates & Distance Training Options

All training can be completed online and via correspondence. All course participants now have the option of attending 5 days of retreat style in person practical training at any time during their program.

Students can complete distance training requirements and still choose to attend in person training when possible and desired or complete distance training options and still receive full certification. 

New additional online resources have been created to supplement existing curriculum so that all course offerings will still be fully delivered in a different way even if students cannot or choose not to be present for in person training. 

Offering a fully distance training option is also in resonance with By the Moon's commitment to be in right relationship with the earth. By giving students the option to complete all course requirements via distance training, we can reduce our individual and collective global footprints.


A fully distance training option also allows more students to enrol who otherwise may have been limited financially or by locale to participate. 

Lectures and lessons will be scheduled weekly with the exception of reading weeks and winter break. Students should allow for up to 5 hours weekly to complete their studies or students can choose a condensed program to complete training in a shorter period of time.
