What is the recommended pacing for the Certificate Program?

The Certificate Program is a 75 hour program that is designed to be self-paced and flexible for various schedules, our global community and learning styles. How and when you study, practice and learn each week is largely up to you!

However, based on the fixed deadline of the Teaching Practicum Submission, we do recommend a certain pace of study to best achieve the deadline and have ample time to absorb the information. We do not recommend cramming this material! Achieving this schedule is dependent on on self discipline and management.

There is 17 or 20 hours of Live Events included in the program. Those have a set schedule but all are recorded and available on replay. Attendance live or via replay is required for certification.

Recommended Hours per Week

We recommend about 4 hours per week for the 6 month period to achieve the 75 hours. Some weeks there is less and some others.

Other Details
  • Weekly Program emails are sent every few weeks on Monday to keep everyone on track and to provide guidance on content and progress.
  • The later weeks of the program are lighter on required study hours to enable the mentors to review your practicums and provide thoughtful, individual feedback. We encourage students to review past work, lectures and classes and those hours are not included in the 75 hour allocation.
  • If you fail to achieve the Teaching Practicum deadline, we will provide you various options. Based on your progress, one of those options could include transfer to a future program. This option incurs a transfer fee. Please see terms and conditions of your program to confirm.
