Nowadays, many people actively choose Alternative Medicine either as an adjunct to Western Medical treatment or as a means of treating illnesses which have not responded well to other forms of medicine. Acupuncture and TCM are at the forefront of such Alternative approaches to health and illness, focusing as they do, not only on treating and curing current illness but also on disease prevention and health enhancement. Prof Shanahan has written a number of short articles on Acupuncture/TCM in all its facets, and we have now launched the first article in the series on this website. Qualified Practitioners of Acupuncture and TCM in Ireland Graduates of the ICTCM are automatically eligible for membership in the PRTCM, Professional Register of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

We aim to offer a free education to anyone with access to the internet, while making a fair return for our investors and offering a creative, fair and rewarding work environment for our employees. Who ALISON is aimed at ALISON is for anyone interested in improving their personal circumstances.

About The Recording Connection A division of the Recording, Radio, Film and Culinary Connection (RRFC), the Recording Connection is an industry-recognized trade school geared around providing you with practical, one-on-one training for a career as an audio engineer or music producer. Our overarching goal is not simply to equip you with the skills you need, but also to help you break into the industry by putting you in a position to gain on-the-job experience while making… [+] important industry connections. Through our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) learning approach, we pair each of our students with an actual music producer or audio engineer who provides one-on-one training in a real recording studio. Our program combines a structured-yet-flexible curriculum with a large amount of hands-on training in the studio, which enables our students not only to learn the rudiments of producing, recording and mixing, but the business aspects of running a studio, as well as the inner workings of the industry itself. Since our inception in 1989, the Recording Connection has expanded its reach into all 50 states, as well as into Canada, Australia and the U.K., ultimately placing more than 11,000 students as apprentices (externs) in real recording studios across three continents. Our mentoring staff consists of actual producers and engineers in world-class studios, many of whom regularly work with Grammy-winning, Platinum-selling artists. We carefully screen our mentors to ensure they are giving our students the best education possible, as well as the best opportunities to connect with the industry in the process. The Recording Connection’s on-the-job audio training program is an excellent choice for anyone with a passion to launch a career as an audio engineer, music producer, live sound engineer, music recording artist, live DJ, composer or other industry professional. Our unique approach puts you in the right place at the right time with the right people to help you break into the industry. Possible Career Paths Within our basic audio engineering and music production course, we are able to pair students with mentors that specialize in their chosen genre or field of interest. We currently offer customized training for the following career paths: Electronic music production Hip-hop music production/beat making Live sound engineering Post production audio Audio for film, TV and video games Touring DJ Music business (artist management, label executive, etc.) Top ten reasons to consider the Recording Connection: 1. Learn near where you live. ( 250 cities to choose from) With over 250 locations across the country, we can train you in a real recording studio within driving distance of where you live. No need to relocate, quit your job or say goodbye to your existing connections. 2. Low tuition With skyrocketing education costs, it is not uncommon for students to rack up tens of thousands of dollars in debt before they graduate. For aspiring industry professionals, this can end a career before it even begins. We keep our tuition affordable ($9400, all supplies included, no fees) so you can focus on your career, not on how you’re going to pay your bills. 3. Prepare for a variety of music industry careers Whether you want to produce, compose, engineer, DJ or perform; whether you’re into hip hop, electronic music, country, pop, rock or jazz; we tailor your curriculum to your needs, and we pair you with a mentor who can help you achieve your specific career goals. 4. Real job placement assistance Thanks to our unique approach, many of our students get hired by their mentors or by connections made through their mentors. However, at the Recording Connection, we leave nothing to chance. For each of our students, we provide additional support, training and job placement assistance for up to a year after graduation. 5. Learn as an apprentice (extern), not a classroom student or an intern As a Recording Connection student, you are not one student among dozens competing for a teacher’s attention in a classroom. Nor are you simply an intern who takes out the trash (although chores are a natural part of studio life). You are an apprentice (extern) who has been assigned to a real producer/engineer for personalized on-the-job training. You aren’t just learning concepts from a textbook: you’re learning the tricks of the trade from a real pro. 6. Work on your own music career One of the things our students love best about the Recording Connection is that our course enables them to apply the things they’re learning to creating their own music. While many of our students simply want to engineer and produce for others, many others want to produce their own music. Our course enables you to up your own game. You’ll learn to record, mix and produce your own music, and even better, get it heard by actual music industry professionals who can help you get it out there. 7. Learn industry standard gear and software Since you’re learning in a real recording studio, you’ll naturally be learning to use the gear and software that the pros use, from vintage amps to virtual plugins, from analog to digital. You’ll learn the industry standard Pro Tools, as well as other programs like Logic, Reason and Ableton. And you’ll get to practice on the gear and software without competing with other students for practice time. 9. One-on-one mentoring In a Recording Connection class, there is only one student: you. No classes with dozens of other students. All the training occurs one-on-one in the studio, just you and your mentor. No glossing over things you don’t understand. Learn at your own pace. Ask whatever questions you like. This personalized attention is what helps people like you become great producers and engineers. And that’s what we’re after. 10. World-Class mentors with real album credits In other schools, teachers often have their degrees and diplomas hanging on the wall. In the real music industry, success is measured in other ways. We partner with top producers and engineers across the country to mentor our students—people who work with superstar talent such as Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, U2, Aerosmith, Kendrick Lamar and many, many others. You probably won’t find college degrees hanging on the walls of your mentor’s studio, but you might just see a few Gold and Platinum Records, and maybe even a Grammy or two. [-]

Setanta College

MSc Ireland Dublin September 2017

Setanta College has recently formed a partnership with the University of South Wales to fulfil what they felt was a key gap in their Sports Education offering. Setanta College, founded by Dr Liam Hennessy , is recognised as a world leader in the application of the latest thinking and technology in Strength and Conditioning. Through this partnership we are offering both a Certificate of Higher Education in Strength & Conditioning and a BSc in Strength & Conditioning. The… [+] courses can be studied full-time on-campus (next intake September 2016) or via our blended learning format (next intake February 2016). Both qualifications are recognised internationally. With the blended learning format, the majority of course work is completed online. Students also attend workshop blocks twice a year (approximately every six months) at the USW Sport park. Each block will be delivered over a 5-day period and will include practical demonstrations and assessments, an introduction to the latest technologies and their applications, face-to-face lectures and examinations. The workshops give students the opportunity to receive coaching in the application of their learning by world class S&C practitioners, under the leadership of Dr Ian Jefferies and to interact with other course members. The students on the full-time on-campus course attend lectures at the University of South Wales. Lecture content is informed by world class scientists and coaches and delivered by experienced lecturers via an interactive format. In addition the application and workshop elements highlighted in the blended programme above, also apply. Regardless of which course you choose, the principles of our approach are the same: to produce graduates that understand what world class Strength and Conditioning means and who can work in partnership with other sports science professionals. Our ultimate goal is to make our graduate stand out and become more employable and as a consequence improve standards in coaching. The Setanta College/USW courses are designed in a ladder fashion to allow seamless progression from one to the next. For example, if you completed the Certificate of Higher Education in Strength & Conditioning, then you would only have to complete the remaining modules of the BSc in Strength & Conditioning to earn your degree. Accreditation USW is an approved qualifications awarding body by the European Union. All accreditation points are accepted throughout the European Union. Therefore the qualifications will be recognised internationally.. Setanta College & USW partnership Setanta College, one of the leading providers of education in the field of strength and conditioning, and Wales’s largest university, USW, have designed two new courses which take advantage of the superb facilities, experience and internet-based resources both institutions have to offer.
