Net of Knowledge is an exciting, new continuing education platform built specifically for TCM and integrative health practitioners.
We are industry stakeholders who have come together from around the globe with a common mission: to inspire and support practitioners like you in your pursuit of knowledge and growth, so you can keep giving more to the patients and communities you support.
Come learn from some of the brightest minds of our field in our engaging digital environment.
To support your continuous self-development, we wanted to make it easier for you to keep learning from the teachers you love, even when you don’t need the CEUs. A lot of time goes into making the quiz and certificate applications for a course—if you don’t need it, why pay for it?
If you see a course or series you’re interested in, but aren’t sure if you need it towards your CEUs, just purchase the ‘Course Only’ or 'Series Only' option, and start learning right away! If you decide you need the CEUs at a later time, you can purchase the CEU add-on then.
Please note, CEU add-ons can only be applied if you have the course or series in your account, to begin with. If you buy a CEU add-on on its own, you will need to go back and buy the course or series respectively.
You have selected CEUs ONLY option. The CEU add-ons can only be applied to courses you already have in your Net of Knowledge account.
If you have purchased a CEUs ONLY option first by accident, you can come back here and purchase the COURSE ONLY option, and they will link back up automatically.

An Introduction to Abdominal Acupuncture
About Dave Shipsey
Dave Shipsey is a Registered Acupuncturist, author and teacher. He has been practising acupuncture in Dublin since 2001 and has been specialising in Abdominal Acupuncture since 2002. Dave completed a “Train the Trainer” program in 2011 to learn the best and most up-to-date methods of communicating knowledge. Dave Shipsey has designed his own Abdominal Acupuncture (AA) training program (CPD accredited) for qualified and final-year student acupuncturists. He has run the program in Ireland, the UK and France; each course has received great reviews and testimonials from participants. The courses have evolved organically over the years and Dave feels that he has now found the perfect balance of theory and practice. In October 2015, Dave Shipsey published his book “Mastering the Art of Abdominal Acupuncture, A Concise Guide to Treating Numerous Painful Conditions." This peer-reviewed book is the first of its kind to be published in English on Abdominal Acupuncture. It is intended as a teaching manual for qualified acupuncturists and students of acupuncture.
Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request. If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.Accessing Your Course
