Enjoy the journey...
I have never ordered from then, but I did think their information looked good.Anybody ever do these home study courses through Bohler institute? The price seems to be lower than most CEU courses I've seen and the info looks good to me.

Home Study Courses: It's back! Look for the CEU course Traditional Kinesiology: The Dynamics of Human Movement on the AMTA's web site. Check back for more exciting home study courses on this web site.
From the AMTA's site:
Traditional Kinesiology: the Dynamics of Human Movement
Overview Instructor Syllabus File Upload
The athlete, moving against gravity, propels the body using powerful muscles, while the surgeon must remain calm and only use the delicate hand and eye muscles to perform heart surgery. The ballet dancer traverses the stage as though floating inches above it. These are all examples of the dynamics of human movement. Kinesiology is the study of that human movement. While the massage therapist is required to take a certain amount of class hours in kinesiology before graduating, many more hours are required to understand the science behind it. This course is an introduction into that deeper exploration. It is also presented because understanding human movement is a vital component to helping people heal.
The purpose of this course is to introduce the massage therapist to advanced muscle movement and make muscle anatomy clearer by focusing on muscle action. When you have completed this course you will be able to:
Define the major contributions to kinesiology made by Aristotle, Da Vinci and Newton;
Describe human movement in terms of muscle tissue, contraction, type and fiber;
List three movement planes for the human body;
Describe the muscles used and common movement injuries for a ballet dancer, a baseball pitcher, a runner and a surgeon.
