Question: I have no prior education or experience as a health professional, am I still eligible to enroll in the CHEK Academy?
Answer: Yes! We welcome all people who are interested in starting or furthering their career path as a Health Professional.
Question: I have a busy schedule, what is the time commitment necessary to complete my year at the CHEK Academy?
Answer: Outside of the scheduled Q&A’s and LIVE trainings, you can excel in your courses with as little as 6 hours of dedicated study time per week.
Question: I am already a CHEK Practitioner Level 1 and HLC Level 1 and have purchased many of the pre-requisite courses for other levels. Do I need to re-take these courses and pay again?
Answer: No. In fact your Academy fees will be recalculated to remove the cost of those programs you’ve already completed! However you must hold current CHEK Status. Your current CHEK qualification will determine at which year you will enter the Academy.

Answer: No, but they do cover all course materials. You will, however, be given a list of recommended accommodations and places to eat close to the venue.

Answer: No, the whole point of the Academy is that all the correspondence courses and live advanced training programs are heavily discounted off the regular price.

Answer: No, all payments are calculated and spread over the period for which you are joining; normally, 3 years for the CHEK Academy and 2 years for the advanced CHEK Academy.
Question: Can I complete all my training in the first few months and pay it off over a year?
Answer: No, the payment process is not a buy-now-pay-later program. You must always be in front of payments before attending courses.
Question: I already hold other medical non CHEK Institute qualifications. Can I join the Academy at a higher year?
Answer: No. Regardless of current non-CHEK qualifications, all students must complete each year, starting with the first, before progressing to the next.
Question: I have friends who are interested in joining the academy. Is there a discount if more than 1 person applies for the academy?
