Medicinal plant processing is a professional certification course started in the year 2013, mainly for Botany Students. Through this course we give our students a good exposure to medicinal plants & its processing from an Ayurvedic prespective. Our students also gain a holistic idea about the importance of Botany in Ayurveda industry and the exposure helps them in their future.
Learning Ayurveda is a life long process. Though the current degree program offers a base for the students, there is a lot more to learn and numerous skills to acquire to become a practitioner. As prescribed in the classics, every practitioner needs to spend time in the company of great vaidyas to perfect what they practice and preach. Patanjalipuri, the learning center created by AVP, has that sankalpa (intention) of providing optimal learning environment and facilities for true seekers.
Centre for Advanced Learning is the unit that purely functions for Ayurveda students and practitioners - as a path to perfection. It offers programs in three levels: (a) for graduate students - to fill the gaps that are many in their curriculum; (b) for fresh graduates - as a 'finishing school' to initiate them into the field of practice by equipping them with the required knowledge, skills and confidence and (c) for practitioners - to periodically update their knowledge and better their commitment and performance.
In the year, AVP signed an MOU with Bharathiyar University for conducting 1 Year Diploma course under Centre for Collaboration of Industry & Institution.
