This course is 6 weeks long. Every Monday & Wednesday we cover a new section in our 45 - 60 minute class. At the end of each week, you will have a review quiz. Upon completion of our course, you will have an open book, final exam to write before receiving your certification.
As an added bonus, to give our students a step ahead in the industry, we have also incorporated a ton of holistic healing herbs and oils, and more!
Wednesday mornings we will have a half an hour class to catch up on anything missed on the Monday, and to cover the spiritual/ energy aspects of end of life work.
Classes begin at 10:00am EST every Monday & Wednesday unless other wise notified. All classes are posted in our private classroom for 30 days, in case of conflicting schedules!
During the week if you have any questions you can schedule a once per week half an hour face time meeting, or zoom meeting with me, or you can email as much as needed for help, if needed. If you would like to know any other information or would like to register please let me know!
