This is an online 5-week program (5 weekly modules) and will require a total of 25 hours to complete. One (1) hour per approximately every second week will be allocated to a live webinar, while the remaining weekly commitments can be completed on your own time.
We recommend allocating at least five (5) hours per week.
While this program is primarily asynchronous, learners are required to attend three (3) live webinars and submit all weekly commitments by Sunday evening every week.
To successfully complete this program, learners are required to complete the following by Sunday evening every week:
- Review all modular content and resources.
- Participate in the discussion forum by posting one (1) original post and responding to two (2) others.
- Attend the live webinar (when applicable).

- Submit the learning activity (requires an 80% grade to pass).
We encourage all learners to schedule allocated time to complete program requirements (and attend the live webinars) in advance to prevent meeting conflicts and promote a positive learning experience.
However, we recognize that due to an unforeseen circumstance you may miss one of the webinars or require an extension to complete your weekly commitments. In this scenario, please reach out directly to your Facilitator as soon as possible to develop a learning plan, which will help you stay on track.
In Solution-Focused Career Practitioner, the weekly live webinars occur during weeks one (1), three (3) and five (5) on Wednesdays from 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST.
The webinars take place via the Zoom platform. Please make sure you have a Zoom account set up in advance of the first webinar and join with a working microphone and video camera to be able to fully participate.
