FAQ

  • How long do I have to complete this course?

    You have one year to complete this course. One six-month extension can be granted - because life happens!

  • Is there an additional fee to certify?

    There is never an additional fee to certify.

  • How long are live classes?

    Classes for our 4 and 12 week courses are approximately 75-90 minutes, but may sometimes be longer due to student engagement. Weekend workshops and other trainings that do not follow these formats will always have hours specified.

  • What if I am unable to attend classes live, or I have to leave early?

    No worries! Each recording, along with its transcript, is posted in your account shortly after being recorded. Our goal is to make this class accessible by making it fit around the schedule of your life. View the recording when you can and jump in when you are ready!

  • What is your refund policy?

    We do not offer refunds or reimbursements once you enroll or set up a payment plan, and encourage you to budget accordingly. If life circumstances prevent you from participating in the course as planned, we are happy to extend your enrollment or adjust as needed. You can make this request by emailing info@birthingadvocacy.org.
