We know what it's like to prepare for the licensing exams because we've done it. We also know there are a lot of different study materials out there because we've bought them all. We saw that there was something missing and we knew there was a better way to study. So we created our study systems. Our passing rate in 2015 was 95%! If that's not enough to convince you to study with us, here's ten more things you should know about us.
We organize your studying.
Other companies send you a pile of materials and leave you on your own to figure out how and what to study. Not us. We know that getting organized is half the battle, so we’ve created a 10-step study system with a study plan that guides you through the program. It’s like a workout routine for your brain—a plan that gets you in shape to pass the exam.
The materials are available immediately.
Once you purchase the system online, you can start utilizing the program right away. You don’t have to wait until the next available workshop or for the mailman.
You can study wherever and whenever you want.
All our materials are online, so you can study from home or anywhere your computer, tablet, or Smartphone goes. You can download the handouts and study during your lunch break. Rather than organizing your life around some company’s workshop calendar, you can study according to your own schedule.
We focus on what you need to know.
We offer one study package with everything you need. We cover only the essential content—the subject matter we know will be tested on the exam. We don't overwhelm you with unnecessary materials or make you pick and choose what to buy. With TDC, you will learn and hold confidently the knowledge base you need to PASS.
We emphasize test-taking strategies.
We will teach you how to take the test. Clear strategies are the best defense against test anxiety. The exam is not a measure of your ability to memorize; it is a measure of your ability to think. We teach you how to think.
We make studying a positive experience.
Most people dread studying for a major exam. That's because sitting with a big stack of books isn't fun. Our program is different. The lectures are interactive with handouts and quizzes; all are developed to maximize learning. Our approach is good for people with special learning needs. With TDC, you will appreciate studying because you are going to feel yourself learning!
We utilize a strength-based approach.
Other companies will tell you that you have to "think like a test taker." We disagree. We believe you need to be yourself and think like a good clinician. We know you've been doing this work for a while. We help you articulate what you already know to be good clinical practice.
We have coaches available for questions.
This is one thing you won’t get with other programs. Anytime you would like additional support, you can communicate with our coaches. All you have to do is submit your question and/or comment in a contact form and we will get back to you shortly.
Our system is based on the science of learning.
Our online study systems are divided into 1-2 hour workshops—just enough information for your brain to learn in one sitting. Research shows that the average person stops learning after 90 minutes, so when you attend a daylong workshop, you miss out on 75% of the material presented. When you read alone from a book, your brain starts to nod along—not really absorbing any of the information. The interactive nature of our training program keeps your brain interested, engaged, and learning. We can get you ready to pass FAST. Eight weeks is the LONGEST we recommend studying to avoid over-studying, which is bad for your brain!
We are with you until you PASS!
TDC materials have expiration dates like the other programs. However, we do not abandon you in the midst of your studying experience. We set our expiration dates according to our understanding of the time needed to prepare fully without over-studying. Sometimes, people need more time. Whenever you need an extension or to repeat the program, there is NO CHARGE. Once you have purchased the materials, we are with you until you PASS.
