Ayurvedic Education Formats

The California College of Ayurveda recognizes that a variety of educational formats are needed to meet the needs of differing student situations. The College offers students the opportunity to study Ayurveda online and receive the same credit toward all certifications.

 


Full-Time Program

Our full-time program offers classes which are attended either in the classroom at our Nevada City campus, or Live Online through our Vedaweb™ system. Students are in class nine hours per week. Due to the extensive amount of class work (studying, assignments, etc.) outside of the regular class hours, this program is ideal for students who do not work full time while attending school. Students who work full time should consider our weekend or distance learning programs.

Full-Time Format:

The Ayurvedic Health Counselor Program takes approximately 1 year to complete.
The Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist Program takes approximately 2.5 years to complete.
The Medical Ayurvedic Specialist Certificate Program takes approximately 4 years to complete.

Note that class completion times may vary depending upon the class schedule and whether or not a student chooses to take breaks between classes.


Weekend Program

Our weekend program offers a slower pace that allows students a greater opportunity to work while going to school. Classes meet one weekend per month. Classes can be attended live online through our Vedaweb™ system. Students are in class 16 hours per weekend. Students who are in the weekend program are better suited to work full-time while going to school.

Weekend and Distance Learning Format:

The Principles of Ayurvedic Medicine Program takes approximately 12 months to complete.
The Ayurvedic Health Counselor Program takes approximately 1.5 year to complete.
The Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist Program takes approximately 3.5 years to complete.
The Medical Ayurvedic Specialist Certificate Program takes approximately 5 years to complete.

Note that class completion times may vary depending upon the class schedule as well as whether or not a student chooses to take breaks between courses.


Internships (On-site and off-site)

All education formats eventually lead to internship. Students in each of our internship programs may either perform their internship in the college’s professional community clinic or within their own communities. Students who perform off-site internships are supervised at a distance by one of our Intern Supervisors.
