The core Acutonics curriculum is over 400 hours, and includes nine core courses, and two electives. Completion of the full program results in becoming a Certified Acutonics® Practitioner. Each course builds on prior class work, and there is significant hands-on classroom experience. Students, who do not have a background in Oriental medicine, are required to take a course in the Energetics of Points and Meridians and demonstrate competence in point location. In addition, 100 supervised clinic hours are required, and a student thesis or special project must be completed. Most classes are held over weekends and some instructors will schedule two classes at the same time to reduce travel for students. The Acutonics Certification Program has been approved by the NCCAOM and the NCBTMB for continuing education.

"The Neptune gong arrived, it spent some time at my home for us to become acquainted, and now is in my therapy office. What an incredible presence! It really is like a living being. I am very grateful. I feel like the gong is a good teacher, ally, and motivator in my study and practice. "
