2016 Retesting Procedures


  • 2016 Retest Dates
  • New retest procedures for 2016

2016 Retest Dates:

Our 2016 retest dates are…

  • March 31st & April 1st, 2016
  • July 14th & 15th, 2016
  • December 15th & 16th, 2016

If you’re interested in retesting, register for the written, practical, and final project (for Phase III only) here.  

Retesting fees may have been updated since your intensive, and are effective 1/1/2016 for all participants.

2016 Retest Procedures:

Details for the written, practical, and final project (for Phase III only) components can be found here.

If you have any questions that are not answered there, then please feel free to email us at the8elements@gmail.com.

Retesting Deadlines:

Towards the end of 2014, we implemented a new retesting policy, which gave participants 18 months (from the last day of the intensive) to complete all of the assignments and pass all components of the test for each phase.  

For those who took their last intensive in early 2014 or earlier, you may already be beyond the 18 month window.

However if you are interested in retesting, then we’d like to extend your deadline to the March 31st & April 1st, 2016 testing period.  If you need to retest after this date, you'd need to repeat the intensive to test again.

Regarding Refunds/Extensions:

When you sign up for a retest/resubmission, you are saying “I’M DOING THIS. OH YES.” For this and many other reasons (including the size of our staff :D), registration fees are non-cancelable, non-refundable and cannot be exchanged or substituted for a different testing period.

We only accept a limited number of written/practical/final project submissions for each retesting period, so you are essentially booking an appointment with Rachel (& Brittany) when you sign up.

Get started early so you can be over prepared when your testing date arrives! We look forward to reviewing your submission!

As always, we are grateful you’re part of this process and  the 8 Elements community!  Please let us know if you have any questions regarding these procedural updates. We look forward to seeing you soon or in the next phase of the 8 Elements™.

With Gratitude,
Team 8 Elements (Rachel, Sol, & Brittany)
