Level 1 Theory Instruction

On receiving your ONLINE booking form and deposit, you will in turn receive a unique access code  which will open you up to the Dr Vodder Akademie E-Learning platform at  https://mld.vodderakademie.com

Here you will need to set up a personal user account with user name and a password for you to access the theory lectures. These E-learning lectures and theory instruction are provided by the  Dr. Vodder Akadamie International (DVAI ~ Austria)   (8 hours guided theory instruction plus self-study and reading, total: 35 hours approx.) covering everything needed for Level 1 and 2 ( Applied MLD) and introduces some of the principles of pathophysiology of the Level 3 theory. You will be able to watch and listen to each lecture as often as you wish.

The DVAI theory instruction can be complemented by optional but recommended three 2.5 hour live zoom calls in the 4 weeks prior to course commencing . E-Tutorials with linked UTube  playlist will be made availble as preparation of each zoom call to facilitate revision, understand the theory in more detail so application to the practice makes more sense and also aid  prepartion for the theory exam. This option is unique to the Dr Vodder School Ireland (DVSIrl )Having completed the lecture series, reviewed the tutorials and completed the proposed pre- course revision zoom calls, the Level 1 MCQ exam, which needs to be completed PRIOR to completing the Level 1 course can be taken and you will be notified of your pass rate. You will have 2 opportunities to complete same. (In the event you do not pass the online exam you will be facilitated with a written theory test on class day 2.)
