Full-Time Program

The Full-Time Program is designed to improve a full range of cognitive abilities. It is the core of the Arrowsmith Program™, and is the standard option for complete brain training. The Full-Time Program is tailored to each individual based on their needs. Each individual receives a full cognitive assessment to determine which brain training exercises will best help them meet their goals.

The Full-Time Program is offered in English and is typically 1-3 years in length. Program length is determined through the cognitive assessment and is based on individual needs. Full-Time programs begin mid August, but enrolment is accepted throughout the year. Our Full-Time Program follows an academic year: mid August to June the following calendar year. We also have start dates that follow Australian academic calendars.

Program Details

The cost of the Full-Time Program is dependent upon program length and required training time. Please contact us for more details.

  • Per hour, the cost is typically similar to tutoring/tuition fees.

Each online participant requires:

  • Access to a computer
  • External mouse (Mouse pads or track pads are NOT sufficient.)
  • A numeric keypad (The numbers along the top of a keyboard are not sufficient. A full numeric key pad is required.)
  • Reliable high-speed internet
  • Google Chrome browser
  • Google Hangouts or similar communication app

Laptops are sufficient provided they have a built in or external numeric keypad. Larger Screens provide benefit in the visual aspects of the program.


For in-person participants, all necessary hardware and materials are provided.

    • At-Home or In-Person access to the Arrowsmith Program™ cognitive training exercises.
    • Individual instruction and support from Canadian-certified Arrowsmith instructors. Our instructors are among the very best and have a track record of exceptional success
    • Progress review and detailed reports from a team of experienced cognitive trainers
    • Daily instruction, coaching, goal setting, communication and proactive support via the virtual classroom

Students will receive a certificate of completion upon successfully completing their program.

Prior to beginning the Full Time Program, there are important prerequisite skills that will greatly aid success and accelerate progress.

Counting Skills:

Some of the skills required for the Full Time program are based on concepts found in a 2 handed analogue clock. The following counting skills are important in ensuring the best possible start to the program.

  • Counting from 1-60
  • Counting from 60-1 (reverse)
  • Counting from 5-60 by 5’s
  • Counting 12-60 by 12’s
  • Participants should have a basic understanding of a 2 handed analogue clock

Counting skills may require daily practice leading up to the start of the program.

Numeric Keypad Touch-typing Skills:

Participants will need to know how to type numbers on the numeric keypad. This is the keypad on the right-hand side of the keyboard, not the numbers along the top. Participants will be using the numeric keypad to enter numbers quickly and accurately, using multiple fingers. Advanced typing skills on the numeric keypad will greatly improve the experience in the program. To improve proficiency at touch typing, daily practice is recommended. Some websites offer free typing programs, be sure to look for websites or apps that have a numeric keypad option.

For individuals who are enroled in an In-Person program, classes will be held on-site at Thanyapura Sports & Health Resort, Phuket. Participants will have customised schedules. Training time are scheduled between 8:00am and 5:00pm daily. 


The cognitive training exercises in the Arrowsmith Program™ have been refined over the past 4 decades. Since 1997 there have been more than 20 research studies involving some 700 students across six universities and nineteen different educational organizations all evaluating the effectiveness of the Arrowsmith Program™. Five of these studies have had control groups and eleven have been peer reviewed. There are another four research projects currently underway at three universities.

The research involves Neuro-imaging and Behavioral studies using multiple designs recommended by the American Psychological Association. Significantly they all show very similar results– that the methods used are effective to improve student learning.

Studies show that the Arrowsmith Program™ training exercises lead to structural and functional changes in the brain as well as significant improvements in academic and cognitive measures. Significant improvements were measured in comprehension, mathematics, vocabulary, processing speed, attention, cognitive efficiency, reasoning, and working memory. Participants and their families report better mental health, emotional resilience, and a more positive self-concept.
