Cost: $450 (+tax) for full certification. Includes a one-time membership fee.
Description: This course will be divided into 10 different modules with a variety of topics related to your support as a Menopause Support Practitioner.
Each section of your 10 module certification program will have a quiz at the end (done online), and a total of 6 assignments. The quizzes are to test your knowledge, and the assignments will be designed to help you prepare for a job helping individuals with peri-menopause and menopause support in your community.
There will be a two month practicum that relates to your knowledge of your online modules, which will be completed at the end of your module and assignment submission and webinar attendance. This will take all the knowledge and skills you have developed and allow you to work on case studies in your community to further develop your confidence as a Menopause Support Practitioner.
There will be a total of 5 online sessions, one roughly every four weeks, covering 2 sections per each discussion. This is a time to learn, check in, and ask questions. Attendance is mandatory, with some flexibility for dates and times (to be announced in March 2019).
There is also two books for required reading, and a book report due for each.
The cost of the program will include your reference guide materials (electronic copies for PDF link access), the required readings for review, mentorship through email, phone and online webinar sessions, grading, exam fee, and one-time Doula Canada membership.
