Learn EMF assessment and mitigation from the comfort of home, office or on the go, in a new small scale 22 hour online course

Travel and accommodation hack into the budget when you contemplate learning a new skill or trade and the school is interstate or overseas. After many requests, Patrick van der Burght has created an online learning experience which doesn’t quite equal our live-workshops… but it gets very close.

Perhaps you’d like to know the finer details of GEOVITAL’s approach to man-made (EMF) radiation that has supported its patient/health client-orientated 35 year history. Perhaps you wish to use this knowledge for yourself or you have an interest to professionally start helping your community. Either way, this online training experience is likely going to teach you all you need to know to get started and see what it is all about, before investing in travel or equipment.

Considering the intimate size of the ‘class room’ with typically 6 new students at most and spending so much time with Patrick van der Burght as your mentor, although not cheap, the course offers very good value for money and saves you a lot in travel and accommodation.

What does an online EMF training experience look like?

Using one of the finest Video Conferencing systems available, Patrick van der Burght aims to create a personalised online classroom experience where knowledge can be passed on and interaction between the students is valued. This is not like an impersonal webinar where participants are allowed to view, listen and ask a few questions via chat only.

This process sees the participants share webcams on occasion throughout the process, participate in classroom knowledge reviews and allows for 2-way conversations. Your host Patrick van der Burght will be presenting, demonstrating and showing purpose recorded videos to show you practical examples of assessing low-level EMF radiation in a domestic setting, as we would in a real home during the live-workshop.

The launch of Geovital’s online class in my opinion was a huge success! The class flowed well, the presentation was very professional and you were very attentive, kind and so easy to converse with. I’ve been in a lot of classes and you were definitely an awesome teacher.

What is included, and what is missing, in an online EMF radiation course?

We believe we can guide you through the knowledge needed to start helping yourself or others with EMF radiation exposure. That said, online teaching has some limitations.

Included in this workshop are:

  • health effects linked to EMF radiation
  • Geovital’s experience and success with EMF radiation avoidance and shielding as part of a multi-fasceted approach with the patients of our Austrian health clinic
  • Electricity as source of radiation and different radiation types
  • Assessment instrumentation explained and demonstrated
  • Exposure guidelines
  • Workflow of conducting a home assessment
  • Demonstration of a home assessment
  • Shielding solutions; types, suitability and application
  • Understanding test reports and being able to identify and justify good performance products
  • Application of shielding solutions
  • Introduction (theory) to Geopathic Stress
  • Installation of Satelit mat in own home if present
  • Mattress design problems and the Geovital answer.

Not included in this workshop:

  • Practical teaching of Geopathic Stress detection and measurement
  • Opportunity to hold and experiment yourself with measurement instrumentation of the academy during class. You’ll be demonstrated how this is done and if, before or shortly after the course, you purchase your own Geovital meters, Patrick commits to spending 1 hour of one-on-one conferencing with you whilst you investigate your own or a friends home with your new meters.

On a complex subject that one would otherwise have to spend years and years researching and learning through trial and error. Patrick’s course brings definition and clarity, in just a few hours. From the convenience of your own home and from a teacher whose expansive knowledge on the subject of radiation-free living is only surpassed by his genuine kindness and sincerity. I highly recommend this wonderful class.” Diane F, Florida, USA

Structure and duration of the course

The schedule of these online courses may vary between courses but typically the content is spread over 4 or 5 sessions of about 4 to 5 hours in duration. Going overtime happens regularly, so make sure to allow availability also some time after the expected finish time.

The sessions are broken up in the over arching heading of Introduction, Radiation and Electricity, Instrumentation and assessment workflow, Shielding Solutions and their effectiveness, Geopathic Stress introduction (theory only), Mattress health and finally a session on the Business side of things for those interested to start their own business assisting families.


Different time zones catered for

Interest comes from across the globe and online courses will be scheduled at different times of the day to enable people from many different countries to find one that they can fit into their schedule. If timing of one particular course, doesn’t suit, then check out the next few course planned. If you have interest but timing is difficult, then let us know of your interest and it may influence future course planning to make it easier for you to join.

Courses are typically ran from Patrick’s base in Australia. Some scheduled early in his day to make participation from North and South America easy in their afternoons/evenings and others scheduled late to enable India, Europe and Africa to join.


The online course offers very good value considering the time spent with Patrick in this small group of students over quite an extended period of time.

Price of the training is U$ 898
(about AU$1200, 800 Euro or 700 British Pound)

Spots are extremely limited so courses can fill quickly.
Some items (manual, presentation book) need to mailed to you so it is best to register at least 3 weeks prior to the start.

Discount on Live-Workshop after you did the Live-Online course
Thinking about doing the online course, but also contemplating doing the live-workshop? The more you repeat the theory content the better you’ll be able to convey it to others. Thats why we think redoing the knowledge section of the course is always a good idea. To encourage you to dive deeper in, once you did the live-online course, you can do a Live-Workshop with Patrick in Australia with a 50% discount or with him in Austria with a 33% discount. So testing the waters though the live-online course first is not wasted money if you end up doing the Live-Workshop. Part of your investment can go towards the reduction in cost of this Live-Workshop.

Satelit mat offer
deal with Geopathic Stress for daytime areas and verify function yourself

Satellit range example

The Satelit mat, against geopathic stress, is for daytime areas only. Depending on its orientation the size of the cleared area varies.

We can’t teach you how to identify and measure Geopathic Stress in an online course, but we should be able to show you how to verify the presence of geopathic stress and the disappearance of the same geopathic stresses when you put our Satelit mat in place. Copper L-rods react to the electrical changes in the person holding them. Once we show you how to hold them, you too can go through your lounge room and witness your body reacting to geopathic stresses. When you then place the Satelit mat flat on the ground, you can check the area again and realise the disturbances are gone. For participants of the online training course, we will discuss Geopathic Stress in theory, but for those wanting to try a little hands-on introduction, learning how to ‘install’ a satelit mat can be a fun and eye opening experience.

Along side the payment of your online course, you can purchase a Satelit mat valued at around AU$460 (U$348) for just AU$298 (about U$225). We will include a Geovital Theravital Mattress Sample valued at AU$95 (U$60) as well.

That is about AU$550 worth of value for just AU298 including shipping. The mattress sample gives you an opportunity to see and feel the quality of our mattresses and make it easier for you to demonstrate the logic of the stretch-effect and convince others of the desirability of these mattresses.


Frequently asked questions

How similar can an online course be to a live-workshop?

We make the experience as much like a real classroom as we can. In a real classroom you’d watch a power point whilst the teacher covers all the points and we can do the same online. In a real classroom, or home, we demonstrate how equipment is used and assessment are done, we can do this online just as easily using webcam and prerecorded training videos to show you these things in a real situation (rather than a classroom). We’re able to pause, elaborate whilst the demonstration is shown or after. Because we keep the experience small and personal with a small number of allowable student, we can make it fun online too. We share webcams and the technology even allows students to break away in ‘break-out rooms’ to discuss a problem privately before presenting it to the group afterwards.

The only thing we can’t do in relation to a live-workshop, is to hand you instruments and you have a go at operating them. This is an undeniable difference. The way we try to work around this as best as possible, is to offer to those who wish to buy the instrumentation after the workshop (or who have purchased before the workshop) a private 1 hour session where we can coach you using the instruments in your own home or that of a friend. We can correct you if you happen to go wrong and even give you some pointers about assessing and mitigating that very home. This is never part of any live-workshop and could be quite a bonus.

What is missing in the online course that I would experience in the live-workshop? 

The big difference is ‘Geopathic Stress’ training.

Geopathic stress is taken very seriously by Geovital and all its consultants. It is part of every bedroom assessment we do because we have seen the enormous impact it can have on health over time and how much a health recovery can be helped by having it addressed.

Geopathic stress theory is covered in the online course but we can not teach you how to find specific geopathic stresses, identify them, measure their stimulation factor and therefor determine which counter measures are appropriate. Because online-course attendees lack this training and ability, they cannot become official Geovital consultants or affiliates just yet until they have had this training during a live-workshop (We can still support their business efforts as freelancers though).

In the workshop we may experiment with the installation of a Satelit mat used for daytime areas. Those students that own one can often be taught, even online, how to verify its function and removal of geopathic stresses, and how to install one. For this, the use of copper L-rods can be used. Most people only need to be shown how to hold them and explained how to process of installation works, so we can do this online quite well too.

Use of instruments
In a live-workshop we can hand you instruments to hold and try out. We have ways to give you this experience after the online-course, but you would have to purchase the instrumentation first. See more explanation on this in the FAQ ‘How similar can an online course be?’ above.

How long does a workshop take and how confident will I be to do this work afterwards? 

The online course takes about 16 to 20 hours spread over typically 4 days. Each scheduled course will show the schedule associated with it.

During the course you learn the theory of EMF radiation and assessment, as well as mitigation in great detail. Often, doing assessments for family and friends is a good place to start once you have acquired the instrumentation. Before you know it, you have built up experience and are starting to become very knowledgeable. The Geovital office is always there to help its representative and affiliates. We can for example, assist your clients (while respecting that it is your client) with a ‘new home’ building consultation if you feel out of your depth at that time.

Do I need to be a doctor or a therapist?

No, there are no prerequisites for the online course. Experience in health care is beneficial but it is not needed at all. It just happens that many integrated service doctors and therapists identify the need for a home assessment with their existing clients and don’t know where to go from there. With Geovital training they are able to offer this service to their existing clients themselves.

Offering EMF radiation home assessments can be run as a stand-alone business. There are enough homes needing to be assessed and sadly, enough people with chronic complaints due to their unhealthy homes. Also many health conscious people (see Gabi’s story) wish to live as healthy as possible. If you are not a doctor or a therapist, you could network with those professionals and help their clients.

What should I expect in terms of expenses to do assessments after the course?

Understandably you need the proper equipment in order to execute an assessment of a home. Our experience has shown that many instruments, especially for RF and LF electric fields, do not assess the situation with the body properly in order to arrive at the answer if protection is called for or not. We take a more medical approach in these things, take readings on the body whenever possible and place little value on the measurement of the air. At GEOVITAL we have become quite picky when it comes to the equipment our own official consultants can use because we need our patients to receive the best possible assessment of their situation.

We have come to the stage where we have designed our own instrumentation and if you desire to become an official GEOVITAL representative, you will need to have the GEOVITAL EM Field Probe and the GEOVITAL HF Field Probe to help our patients get to the right decisions about their situation. It usually earns itself back fairly quickly and we have attractive pricing on these items during the workshop for the students because we realise these are your working tools…  but you do need to budget for it as a business expense. Ask your local office now about a price indication of the cost of these tools.

What is required to be done to become an official Geovital consultant after this online course?

Only having done the online course, and having acquired instrumentation to measure with, you will, after gaining practical experience after the course, be starting to become comfortable charging people for home EMF assessments. When you need products to mitigate with, we’d be delighted to assist you after some simple agreement is put in place.

To become an official Geovital consultant takes a little more. Firstly, we do require our official Geovital consultants to use instrumentation we deem appropriate and this is typically our field probes because we feel, based on our experience, that health clients receive the best assessment using these.

Secondly, you will need to do a live-workshop to learn the assessment skills for geopathic stress in order to be considered for being an official Geovital consultant. We say ‘considered’ because we’d like to meet you and of course we only want people representing us who fit the family. If you’re passionate about improving the world and health of those around you, in an honest way, then you should be fine. We can’t just say ‘everyone’ can be an official Geovital consultants because some people just don’t fit. An agreement would also come into place which protects our brand, the relationship and the investment of time we will make in you to help you.

Official Geovital consultants also become our highest priority when it comes to referring inquiries from new health clients for assessments and they actively go out to promote their home assessment business. An online profile may also be part of this. We have found in the past that consultants who mix different brands of products confuse clients who are expecting the Geovital representative with the Geovital approach to step through the door. The relationship we have with those representing us therefor also includes this professional to work only with our solutions and not with competing alternatives. An approach which makes sense for many reasons including the profitability of your business, but it is a business decision you have to make. We’re happy to work with you at whichever level you are comfortable.

Having done the online-course may see you be granted a substantial discount on doing a live-workshop. You have to approach the Geovital school in question about this or ask Patrick van der Burght about this possibility.

Why is the way Geovital assesses radiation different?

Our approach and experience has come from dealing with patients and the need to have assessment methods as well as products that give us best chance of consistent and durable positive outcomes with those patients. In our experience, investigating the arrival of electronic pollution in the body instead of the air (not just for electric fields but also radio frequency radiation) has been a big distinction for us. Other courses in EMF (small and big) tend to underestimate, in our opinion, the need for shielding to be put in place because they measure the air and not the body. Beyond this, the results of shielding projects they may have hesitantly undertaken, may not have brought health improvements for some clients they were hoping for or caused side effects. This may be because of the lower quality of shielding products people tend to work with or recommend. This lack of wonderful outcomes has then reduced the enthusiasm for applying and recommending shielding to other clients. We sometimes hear others state ‘only shield when absolutely necessary’, where we would say ‘shielding benefits everyone’ because with our solutions, made from ingredients we carefully selected and with its performance, we rarely see anyone who hasn’t been excited about their decision to shield.

We use the term patient as we are originally a health clinic in Austria. For those areas where the word patient is restricted to use by medical doctors, please read ‘patient’ as ‘health client’.

What if I miss an online class session?

You should not sign on to an online course if all proposed dates don’t match your availability. We want to keep courses small, likely about 6 people, so if 1 or 2 drop out and expect to redo it during a later online course, then we end up with more and more people and the experience becomes less personal.

We may allow a person to jump to another course for 1 session, but this is at our discretion and not automatically allowed. If you take on a spot in one online course and then need to move to another in which you will take up one of the limited seats, you may be asked to pay for this new spot you are taking up if it prevents others from joining in. If concerned, talk to Patrick before registering or before you miss a class.

Best approach is to register for online courses of which you know you can make all dates and times. Also allowed enough time to go ‘over time’ because questions or changes in the flow of the course can often extend sessions. Going an hour over time, happens regularly and important information could be missed if you have to leave.

Are the training sessions recorded and available to participants?

No. The sessions may be recorded for internal training and verification purposes but they are not available for students at this time. Our concern is that these video recordings get published elsewhere, like youtube, or shared without authorisation. Course materials are subject to copyright and a confidentiality agreement is part of the registration forms.

You are being sent a bookwork of near all the slides used in the presentations, in which you can make your notes for later review.
