In what order should I complete the Level One learning modules?
Complete the learning modules in the following order:
To ensure that you learn the material in The BioMechanics Method in the step-by-step manner in which it is designed, you should complete the learning modules in order as listed above. Although you will have received all five learning modules at the same time, you should only commence working on subsequent modules once you have successfully completed the first module.
The success of The BioMechanics Method learning program depends on building your skills in the specific assessment and exercise areas one step at a time. Completing the learning modules simultaneously does not enable you to adequately comprehend the material. Your cooperation in this matter is not only a course requirement, but will greatly improve your skill acquisition as you work toward becoming a Specialist in The BioMechanics Method.
How long should it take to complete this course?
