This program leverages flexibility AND structure in its design with self-direction on the part of students who can expect to commit a total of 20-30 hours of study time, which includes four 2-hour live videoconferences.

Each student should budget approximately 5-7 hours for preparation and study prior to each virtual meeting. Successful completion of the program fulfills the prerequisite for the Advanced Applications in PACT™: Certification and Licensing Program and the 2-year Polarity Mastery Program.
