203b PLT Technologies – Telephonic Course

PLT Technologies Description

According to the NIH "95% of all disease is caused by stress".  The PLT Technologies Course explores the use of polychromatic light therapy (PLT) as a novel, noninvasive and highly effective stress management tool. This five-module course emphasizes the fundamental concepts of stress management and polychromatic light technology. Students who complete this course gain a thorough understanding of the physiology of the stress response, allostatic load and overload, and the role of the mitochondria in the stress response.  We discuss the basic concepts of light technology: light emitting diodes (LEDs), photons, pulsed rates, and photobiomodulation (PBM).  Then, we integrate the evidence-based physiologic impact of polychromatic light technology right down to the cellular photobiomodulation (PBM) response in the mitochondria. This unique approach to PLT education provides a foundation for polychromatic light therapeutics thoroughly explored in the next core course titled "PLT Therapeutics".  The course is supplemented with support materials, videos, and relevant research articles.

The SELF-STUDY COURSE is offered as a correspondence course with five audio-visual modules to be studied at your own pace.  Each Module has a workbook with study questions, recommended reading, annotated references and a brief quiz to submit for your CEUs.

The TELEPHONIC Course (featured) is offered in five-modules taught via Zoom live/interactive meeting format. The instructor presents one module per meeting which typically lasts two hours depending on student participation. This is a highly interactive teaching format allowing students the opportunity to ask questions as the course progresses. Preparation for each module is encouraged and supported by the reference materials provided in each lesson module. Downloading the ZOOM meeting app to your computer is encouraged, however, not required as telephone access codes are provided upon registration. CEUs will be granted upon completion of the course evaluation.

Upcoming Schedule:

  • April 24, 26  May 1, 3, 8 (Tuesday and Thursday evenings)
  • 5:00 pm Pacific; 6:00 pm Mountain; 7:00 pm Central; 8:00 pm Eastern

Course Registration:

Be sure to schedule early! Registration closes April 21, 2018

The LIVE COURSE is offered on location in a two-day format. The LIVE COURSE includes the basic content. Participants have the opportunity to ask questions as the course progresses. CEUs will be granted upon completion at the end of the two days.

Wesley James Andrew Burwell attended college in Ontario, Canada for Electronics Technology/ Technician. After years in the industrial/engineering field, he shifted his focus to alternative/ complementary medicine after a family relative developed cancer. Wes began his studies in energy medicine over 11 years ago, dealing with stress management and helping numerous clients return to health. Wes approaches energy medicine from the basis of electrical theory and physics and found they are intricately involved on a cellular level. Wes has mastered many types of energy medicine and has an amazing ability to integrate them not only in the clinic but in educating others. As a pioneer and expert in the science of polychromatic light technologies and therapeutics, Wes has toured extensively for the past 6 years as an international speaker. He has served as technical support/director for two different companies and helped design and develop new and innovative light therapy products.
