  • This is much more common than you think! In these cases, students opt to register into our Custom Education programs. Here we create a tailored schedule of studies perfectly suited to meet all certification requirements AND fit into the larger framework of your life. These programs have an open enrollment, meaning you can apply for studies at any time, however once we formulate your schedule of classes, we must adhere to them as in any other educational format. Studies can be arranged over a period of time ranging from 3 weeks to 15 months.

After the deadline, you will NOT be able to submit any payment without first contacting Joelle to inquire about the possibility of joining the training.
  • For the Custom Education programs,  it is BEST to contact us FIRST to confirm Joelle's availability and the feasibility of composing a schedule of dates to meet your needs. THEN you can register for your training.
