Currently not all areas of the World accept Accredited Online Training for Basic Licensing.

If you plan to take our FULL TAOND Certified Program you must contact your local regulatory board PRIOR to purchasing this program to ask whether your board will accept Internationally Accredited Online Training Program for Basic Licensing.

AND REMEMBER - If you are interested in Training for Basic Licensing and want to take your Training Online, when speaking to your Regulatory Board to ask if they accept 3rd party evaluations, because some  may accept W.E.S. or A.C.R.E.V.S. Program Evaluation in order for you to qualify to take the state licensing exam?

What is a third party evaluation report?

Both Academic & Credential Record Evaluation & Verification Service (ACREVS) and World Education Service (WES) provide third party evaluations for International Programs and send their reports directly to your state board. So when you contact your board to ask about Online Training, be sure to ask if your board accepts either a WES or ACREVS report.

HOWEVER - Your Area Of The World still has some Very Exciting TAOND Programs for you to choose from.
