Students may be eligible to earn certification in the below modalities, at their own expense, should they choose to do so. The optional cost of certification once all requirements have been met (more information about the requirements of each can be found on the website at www.tcvm.com) is $150 per certification. Payment of this fee includes a formal certificate shipped to your preferred address, as well as being listed as certified in the respective modality on the online TCVM Practitioner Directory for client search on the Chi Institute website. Each additional certificate copy requires a $15 reprint fee. Certifications also have minimum exam score requirements, which may require exam retakes in order to qualify. The cost per exam retake is between $100 and $150, depending on the exam. Exam retakes will not affect the student’s score in the respective course. In certain cases, additional case reports may be accepted as extra credit. The fee per additional case report review is $50.
