The online VML training was designed to enable therapists and parents from all over the world to practice VML. There is no option to reach so many people through the on campus traditional version of the training. The on campus option will always be favorable due to the direct interaction with the VML trainer, however, the online version suggest some advantages: more materials, accessibility to learning materials for longer period of time (more than the on campus training), cheaper, convenience (home based) and dynamic. It does require self-discipline, many hours of learning and practicing.

Single courses – you can choose single courses out of over 80 different courses which compose the whole VML training. In this way you can learn specific knowledge that will fit your needs without taking the whole program.
