Online Apitherapy Course Application

Why you should join our online Courses?

Dr. Stefan Stangaciu is practicing apitherapy, phytotherapy, aromatherapy and apipuncture since 1991. He is delivering, since 1999, training courses in Romania and worldwide. The courses are regularly updated in response to advances in Apitherapy and bee products science.

Our main objective is to help you to have a very good understanding of the Apitherapy theory but to ground also the course in real-world practice.

Contact us shortly to ask for preliminary details, in case you are interested in improving your own health or education, or to help the human or animal health, or to ameliorate the environment and its extremely important biodiversity helped by the bees, ideally your own bees.

Our main e-mail address is: but to be sure that we will receive all your messages, kindly send us a copy of your email also to: 

We would love to speak in person with you, via ZOOM, Skype, Whatsapp or phone, to answer all your questions in order to help you to make a well informed decision before enrolling in any of our Courses and Workshops. Feel free to send us a SMS or a short message to our Whatsapp number: +40744409126.


Why do you need an online, long distance Apitherapy Course?

There are many reasons for that:

· Each of us has been, is or can be ill some day…

· our family members or friends can be in the same situation and may need our help;

· to prevent diseases is much, much easier than to treat them;

· the classical, allopathic treatments, based only on chemical treatments recommended also by the pharma industry have usually too many adverse reactions, up to life threatening ones, especially in the treatment of chronical diseases;

· the bee products have an extraordinary richness in nutrients and “soft” active compounds which can protect our health efficiently against over 800 diseases ;

· the beekeepers have the second highest longevity among all professions; they are usually strong and generous with their friends all their life. Why? Because they regularly receive their bees “treatment” (good, natural food, and stimulation through the bee stings)

· Apitherapy is also an extraordinary source of knowledge; a good apitherapist has very complex background knowledge of areas such as biologyentomologyagriculturebeekeeping, veterinary medicinebiochemistrypharmacologynatural therapiesclinical medicinepsychology etc., etc.

Probably the most important thing related to Apitherapy is that this old natural healing method can increase your general knowledge and can help you to help other people in need.

Main goals of AIC

The Apitherapy Internet Course is designed with several primary objectives in mind:

1. Foster Global Knowledge Exchange: Our aim is to facilitate the exchange of Apitherapy-related information among apitherapists worldwide. We believe in creating a vibrant community where insights and experiences are freely shared.

2. Comprehensive Apitherapy Education: We are dedicated to equipping our students with the essential skills and knowledge required to effectively practice Apitherapy, ensuring they achieve consistently excellent results.

3. Building Personal Apitherapy Resources: We empower our students to construct their Apitherapy databases and libraries, enabling them to have readily accessible references and materials for their Apitherapy practice.

4. Paving the Way for Future Clinics and Courses: We lay the groundwork for the establishment of future Apitherapy clinics, offices, and local/national Apitherapy courses, expanding the reach of Apitherapy across various regions.

5. Promoting Environmental and Human Well-being: We educate our students on how Apitherapy can contribute to the protection of Mother Nature and the betterment of human health, underlining the interconnectedness between Apitherapy and our planet’s well-being. Join us on this transformative journey toward holistic healing and environmental stewardship through Apitherapy.

General structure of AIC

The Apitherapy Internet Course consists of 100 Lessons presented in three levels with a total of 9 modules.

Each Module is sent to the students via normal E-mail, as an attached Zip-ed Word document.

Following the completion of each module, we offer a dedicated period for open discussions, questions, and comments. This opportunity is available to students who wish to seek clarification, engage in dialogue, or share their thoughts and inquiries freely. Active participation is encouraged and valued as it enhances the learning experience.

The final examination is after level three, by which time all students should have a complete understanding of all of the Lessons.

The examination will consist of a series of 100 short questions, sent by E-mail.

Students who score at least 70% correct answers will receive the “Certificate of Completion”.

This certificate will show that the holder has a strong theoretical knowledge of Apitherapy.

Before, during or immediately after the Course, each student will be helped to affiliate with one or more of the existing national/international Apitherapy Societies.

The practical aspects of Apitherapy will be learned by the student participating in “hands-on”, practical workshops to be arranged, in co-operation with Apitherapy Consulting & Trading International, but also with the Romanian, German, Ecuadorian, Lithuanian, Canadian, American or Chinese Apitherapy Societies, depending on the location of the student. The workshops will reinforce the strong theoretical knowledge of Apitherapy obtained during the online Course.

The legal aspects of Apitherapy will be fully discussed at the end of the third level.

The general structure of the Course is very flexible, thus new Lessons can be included depending on requests received from our students.

The Course leader (Dr. Stefan Stângaciu) will offer students private Apitherapy counseling after the second and third level. This counseling will be free of charge.

Level ONE

The first 31 Lessons of the Apitherapy Internet Course have as their main goals the introduction of the students to the bases of Apitherapy. In this level will be presented in detail all necessary information related to the bee product origin, types, composition and characteristics. The importance of bees in Nature, humans, and animals will be also discussed in the first Lessons of this level.

After the receipt of Lessons via E-mail there will follow an active phase of discussions, questions, and comments.

It is important that each of the above-mentioned Lessons is completely understood before the Second Level of AIC will begin.

After the questions & answers phase, there will be a short break.

Upon completion and necessary refinements made by our team, these PowerPoint presentations will serve as invaluable tools not only for the current student but also for aspiring Apitherapy specialists in the future. These presentations are designed to empower students to effectively promote Apitherapy in their respective countries, facilitating the global dissemination of this valuable knowledge.

AIC Thesis

Starting in 2003, we introduced a novel component to evaluate the commitment and enthusiasm for learning among our AIC (Apitherapy Internet Course) students, prior to the Final Exam.

Each student will have the opportunity to craft a concise thesis, spanning approximately 30-50 pages, centered on a subject within Apitherapy that resonates most with them. This thesis should be initially submitted as a Word document and subsequently as a PowerPoint presentation.

The significance of this thesis extends beyond the course itself. It can serve multiple purposes, including but not limited to:

1. Media Engagement: The thesis content can be utilized during interviews with mass media outlets, allowing graduates to share their expertise and knowledge with a broader audience.

2. Educational Outreach: Graduates can incorporate their thesis findings into their communications, lectures, and presentations at local and national health practitioners’ and beekeepers’ associations, fostering knowledge dissemination within their respective communities.

3. Publication Potential: Over time, the thesis has the potential to be developed into a booklet or even a full-fledged book, further contributing to the body of knowledge in the field of Apitherapy.

This innovative approach not only assesses students’ dedication but also encourages them to become ambassadors for Apitherapy, promoting its benefits and principles on a wider scale.


Final Exam

Upon completing 100 in-depth lessons and responding to a multitude of potential queries, the moment for the student’s examination approaches…

This examination serves as a vital assessment to confirm that students have not only established a robust theoretical foundation in Apitherapy but have also gained a comprehensive understanding of its benefits and potential drawbacks or risks.

The primary objective of this exam is to provide students with another valuable “lesson” – one that illustrates how successfully navigating each examination can bring about a deeper sense of “order” and profound “satisfaction” within the student’s mind, soul, and spirit.

Each student will be granted a generous timeframe of 24 hours to formulate responses to a set of 100 questions. While the majority of these questions will stem from the course’s provided lessons, they may also touch upon related, though previously undiscussed, subjects.

All responses will undergo meticulous evaluation by Dr. Stefan Stangaciu, the Course Coordinator. To pass this examination, a minimum of 70% correct answers is required.

Students who successfully complete this examination will be awarded the course’s diploma, a certification of completion, delivered via conventional mail.

For students who do not pass the examination on their first attempt, there will be two additional opportunities to participate in similar exams in the future. However, if the student remains unsuccessful after these two additional attempts, they will be required to revisit all AIC Levels, much like any new student embarking on the course.


The Course Certificate earned upon successfully completing the Final Exam signifies the acquisition of a solid theoretical foundation in Apitherapy.

We are committed to officially verifying this achievement whenever it becomes necessary, reaffirming the expertise of our graduates.

However, it’s crucial to note that, in many cases, this certificate alone may not automatically authorize an individual to establish an Apitherapy Office, Center, or Clinic, as local, regional, or national laws must be considered. The most expedient approach to establish such a practice is to collaborate closely with local medical professionals, adhering to legal requirements and regulations in your area.

Apitherapy is currently experiencing dynamic growth worldwide, with numerous Apitherapy Clinics either in progress or on the horizon. Possessing an Apitherapy Certificate ahead of any potential regulatory body can provide a significant advantage.

Ultimately, your genuine desire to learn and assist others in achieving a healthier life takes precedence over passing examination tests. Your dedication to the well-being of others is what truly matters in the practice of Apitherapy.

Knowledge and Love, the main goals we should all have in life, can be very well accomplished through our Course too.

Hopefully, you will you join us!
