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. We pride ourselves on taking complex thinking and science and making it easy to understand and digest so you can take practical steps when working with families. 


We don’t present you with “all the things, all at once”. We break down all of our courses into easy to digest lessons with practical steps, with videos, text, quizzes graphics and downloads to support all learning styles. 


Our courses are designed to help you digest the right information at the right time with lessons building on top of each other. 

Each course outlines the estimated time that's required to successfully complete the course.
