Is it Right for You? Are there Alternatives?
Certified Sleep Sense is one of the oldest programs on the internet. Is it worth it? What’s it all about? Here’s what you need to know.
We Reviewed the Program
There are a number of certification programs to become a certified sleep consultant.
One of the oldest is the Sleep Sense Consultant Program, a three-day program based in Florida and taught by its creator Dana Obleman, a mother of three and a pediatric sleep coach.
Because it’s one that my clients asked about before choosing my acclaimed IPSP Sleep Consultant Certification program, I decided to check Sleep Sense out.
The Program: Instructors and Classes
I’d love to get behind a time-saving program. But this one is only three days. And, just being honest here: that is nowhere near long enough to cover the material you need to know to become a great, and legally protected, certified sleep consultant.
A second mark against the program is that there is only one instructor. So you aren’t receiving professional input from a variety of medical and legal professionals.
Cost of Certified Sleep Sense
While quality is our first and most important consideration, and we know yours is too, we knew you’d want to know how much this program costs.
The program’s tuition is a little under $10,000 plus travel fees and a $1,000 annual certification renewal fee….WOWSER!
There’s a Better Way. IPSP is Here to Help
Hi! I’m Violet Giannone, and back when I was getting my education to become a Certified Sleep Consultant, I had to really do my homework to find a great and affordable school.
I was hard-pressed to find both in one program. That’s why I created my own program, the Institute of Pediatric Sleep.
I chose the best, highest-credentialed educators, doctors, nurses and even attorneys to teach my students. Today’s amazing group of future sleep consultants deserves it!
Here’s how you can get the best, high-rated, complete education at a budget that’s student-friendly.
The Institute for Pediatric Sleep & Parenting® (IPSP) offers a more affordable program with the flexibility to complete your certification at your own pace, and offers so much more!
It is the only certification program of its kind that is designed by a registered nurse and taught by a registered nurse. With additional lessons from experts in their field.
When you graduate from the IPSP program, you will graduate with up-to-date training and into a rewarding field that offers immediate job openings, fast financial growth, and a support system backed by a team of our staff and seasoned graduates.
The ultimate payoff is working with children and their parents and improving their lives now and forever.
