You do not need to hold a license to get trained, you simply need to have a high school or greater education, work in the field or a related field, and complete the 40 hour training provided by our company. We want you to succeed! In order to do so, it is imperative that each student use their own client workbook. This ensures that you are teaching a class and your work can never be confused as "group therapy". Workbooks can be purchased at a discount on our website by providers and resold to students. Most providers will make an additional profit from reselling the workbooks and it provides a clean and structured approach to teaching the parenting classes. Reproduction of our client workbook books is prohibited and a violation of federal copyright law.
