    Yes! This program is designed to be accessible to anyone passionate enough to learn and teach. Your instructor will work on designing a unique learning plan based on your current level of understanding and experience. Beginners may find that completion of the program takes 18 - 24 months, as many beginners end up taking the Master Class twice before successfully completing the program. Some students may choose to space out their coursework to accommodate their schedules, which is acceptable.

There are also multiple opportunities to set up virtual one-on-one meetings with the instructor for personalized guidance and instruction. This program is designed with flexibility in mind.

  • What kind of commitment is required to complete this program? What if I cannot attend live events due to a conflicting schedule?

    Our coursework is intensive and requires completion of a number of projects, assignments, readings, and practicals that will require quite a bit of time to complete. The exact time requirements vary substantially person-to-person. You should expect to dedicate at least 7 hours per week on coursework when classes are active. Classes are recorded so that content is available for on-demand viewing. One-on-one consults with your instructor will be made available routinely throughout the program.

  • How many hours of coursework will I complete by the end of this program.

    In terms of time requirements and intensity, it is best to think of each of our classes as a traditional semester-long college class. Our teacher training program consists of 40 instructional hours as well as at least 5 additional hours of supplemental instruction, which is on par with a normal semester long college class. Our master class consists of 40 instructional hours as well as at least 10 supplemental instruction. This is excluding any reading assignments, assessments and other course content. All in all, you can expect to receive approximately 100 hours of direct instruction and dozens of hours of supplemental instruction, plus biweekly assignments, readings and assessments over the course of a year.

  • Are bulk discounts available for teams and/or organizations? Are there ways to get hands-on experience in this program?

    Yes! If you have a group of people that you want to get certified, we can work out a special pricing scheme to fit your situation! Just reach out and ask about our bulk teacher training pricing and we will contact you to find out more details and provide a quote. While this program has been developed to be accessible virtually to anyone anywhere, if you are interested in on-site tours, in-person instruction, and hands-on elements, custom packages are available. Contact us to set up a free discovery call to learn more!

  • I signed up, but changed my mind. Can I get a refund?

    Refunds are available within the first 24 hours of purchase. After that we apply your payment to order supplies and prepare your spot in the cohort. From that point on, refunds are not available. However you can choose to move your registration to a future date if you like, or you can transfer your registration to someone else. Sometimes we can help facilitate the sale of your registration to someone else if we have a waitlist of prospective attendees.
