This year, in 2020, we will be introducing an upgraded webinar series titled Mastering the Treatment of Injury and Pain. Common sports injuries, along with treatments for postural imbalances, and other important sports acupuncture techniques, will be featured. This new program is in HD (high definition video), so the lectures and demonstration videos are as clear as possible. Whitfield considers these videos an important resource for precise instruction of his on-line teaching programs. They will be formally announced by summer of this year, and hosted by the new platform Net of Knowledge.

In 2012, Whitfield Reaves introduced his webinar series on the most common sports injury and pain syndromes. Hosted by Eastern Currents Learning, this series features both upper and lower extremity injuries, in a series of one-hour webinars. Currently, there are 18 courses to choose from. Topics range from the treatment of shoulder and upper extremity, the low back and hip, and the lower extremity. These courses are focused on specific needling protocols and assessment methods, and are clearly presented with video footage demonstrating techniques discussed in the course.

As for this current program, each one-hour webinar of the series may be viewed individually. A Certificate of Completion is earned by those who complete at least 15 hours of the program. Recorded webinars are approved for Canadian, NCCAOM, and California PDAs (CEUs).
