Regardless of whether you complete the non-accredited course or the accredited course, you will be able to download your certificate of completion once you have completed the online content. We offer this option as we recognise that for people completing coursework, they will want to be able to demonstrate they have completed the course content.

Let’s talk about “overwhelm” for a second.


Overwhelm happens when you don’t have an actionable plan and easy to follow information to follow. We have created our sleep courses in a way that ensures you never feel overwhelmed.
