Please note the schedule below is for our online offerings of the January/February and June 2021 200 hour teacher training. Unfortunately, it is unlikely we be able to offer an in-person 200 hour training for 2021, however, we will of course update this information if something changes. The times listed below are live sessions- we are partnering with an online learning provider, World Mastery, which will allow for more flexibility. All sessions of the training will be recorded and saved to the World Mastery platform for viewing at your convenience for up to one year after the end of the training. While we do encourage you to participate “live” when possible, this additional option is very valuable for anyone with specific scheduling conflicts as you will not miss any of the material. All sessions will be hosted via the World Mastery platform and will require internet as well as a computer or smartphone/tablet with video capabilities to participate.
Monday – Friday: 7 – 11:30 a.m. EST / 2:30 – 6 p.m. EST (8 hours total)
Saturdays: 7 – 9:30 a.m. EST / 1:30 – 5:30 p.m. EST (6.5 hours total)
Sundays: Off- will have the ability to complete some required class attendance during this time if desired.
This training is an intensive immersion and a lot of material is covered in a condensed period. The process will allow for a lot of positive change, but you must be sure to eat and rest accordingly. It is important to note all times are listed in Eastern Standard Time, please take this into consideration as these time frames may be different depending on where you live.
Application Fee: $150 (non-refundable)
