Online Proficiency Partners Course

Online Proficiency Partners Course

The training program offers a broad spectrum of information that may assist you as an individual or practitioner in your respective field.  It is not intended to qualify you to treat or diagnose outside your licensed area of practice. If you want to learn about Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome commonly known as CIRS then completing this course should formally introduce you to the issues and hopefully stimulate a desire to learn more about a condition that affects so many in today’s world. 

Proficiency Partners is the first level of the Shoemaker Protocol CIRS training programs. Certification supports proficiency in patient advocacy, and licensed prescribers can learn what they need to RX CIRS/biotoxin illness safely. The course is thorough, covering diagnosis, testing and therapy.

The course is open to non-prescribing practitioners even though they won’t be able to prescribe medications. We have a robust group of counselors, dieticians and various experts who aren’t physicians who add enormous benefit to overall care of the CIRS patient.

In order to diagnose, treat or refer patients to licensed health care providers, those without medical licensure must submit their scope of practice that defines what they can and cannot do as members of the team of professionals involved with the care of the multiple needs of CIRS patients.

Shoemaker Protocol Certification requirements include reviewing an 8-hour online teaching course of 27 modules and completing a 171-multiple choice test with 75% correct.  The cost of the program is $1,500.
