There will also be additional required Practicum Hours (Class Practice +) that can be attended around your schedule of availability throughout the duration of the program.
This 20 week program has been carefully designed to maximize learning potential and program retention. We find that most people learn more effectively by having weekly shorter classes, rather than long extended hours of training throughout an entire weekend, week, month or more, which can be overwhelming based on the amount of materials required to complete a quality training program. This also allows us to give you the guidance and attention needed, and skills required to cultivate your passion for teaching and serving the community in a safe and supportive way.
Once all required curriculum hours have been fulfilled, you will be given 30 days to complete a final written exam, and to perform a live teaching demonstration to be eligible to receive your certificate of completion.
