Schedule 

Schedule is based on individual preference and availability. Meeting times are flexible and allow for life happenings and schedule changes. Meeting times can range from 3 times a week to once a month, depending on individual schedules. Meeting times will last no longer than 2 hours. The base 6 module training can take 6 to 12 months to complete. 

Module One covers a wide range of topics, so it can take up to two months to complete this module, depending number of meeting times per month. 

The remaining modules are more single topic focused, so they will take anywhere from 3-6 weeks to complete, again, depending on number of meeting times per month.

Most trainees choose to meet once per week, completing the program in approximately 7 months. Meeting times can vary, but the best availability is weekday mornings and early evenings. 

If you choose to take the additional specialty modules, you can schedule these any time after you complete the base 6 module training.
