In general, Kinesiology courses/workshops/modules are 2 day courses, usually taught over a weekend, providing between 14 and 16 hours training credit.  Some include proficiency assessment within the module, others have a separate proficiency assessment.    

There are many "modalities" of Kinesiology worldwide, as well as many stand-alone courses.  A modality is a set of individual Kinesiology modules taught in sequence, which is "owned" by an individual or school.  It may have a primary focus, e.g. Enhanced Learning, Nutrition, Sports or Emotional issues or it may be focused around a particular therapeutic support e.g. Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, specific Flower Essences or Energy Healing. Some modalities combine a selection of areas of interest to develop a comprehensive body of education and training.

As the KAI does not have the resources to evaluate the quality standards of all the many modalities of Kinesiology available, it has adopted the accredited course list of the Australian Kinesiology Association (AKA). The AKA has a robust system of course evaluation and its approved list is recognised by the Australian Government.
