Find the Right Program for you

While our "live" synchronous Certificate Program only runs twice a year (and is application based), some students prefer an On-Demand version which is available year-round.  This program enables extra flexibility but excludes weekly calls and the dedicated cohort of students.

How long is each course and what is the weekly time commitment?

The On-Demand Certification Program is self paced over the course of 15 weeks. Generally speaking, you can expect to set aside three hours of work per week for each program. 

How often are the courses updated?

As our digital world evolves, the program evolves with it. The certificate is continuously updated to feature the most recent digital wellness research. Our international community of teachers and alumni also allow us to constantly integrate breaking news and innovative material into our curriculum. 

Where do I ask questions? Can I hire a teacher for additional consulting or coaching? 

Our course features cover 20 teachers and a plethora of digital wellness topics! Our On-Demand program will be moderated by a dedicated teaching assistant who will be able to answer your questions.
To respect our teacher’s time and privacy, direct contact information is not shared, however you may personally reach out to them on LinkedIn and through our alumni group. Hourly consulting is available on a case by case basis depending on teacher availability.

How long will I have access to the course?

Due to the self-paced nature and extended timeline from the 10-week Live program, there will be a hard cutoff at the 15 week mark to all program materials. While you will no longer be able to access the program after this time, you will receive access to a robust alumni folder full of resources upon completion of your certificate.  

How does community + teacher interaction differ between the two programs?

The Live Certification Program provides community interaction and real time engagement over the course of 10 weeks. You'll be given the opportunity to network with fellow learners and participate in group discussions with peers and instructors alike. 

The On-Demand Program provides you with the freedom to self-pace the course. As a result, you'll be on a solo journey to Digital Wellness! That said, if you have specific questions about the content, you can reach out to ta@digitalwellnessinstitute.com and we will try to respond within 2-3 days. 

Why are the lessons called "weeks" when I'm enrolled in On-Demand?

We use the term "weeks" to help guide you through the content and to make sure you're staying on track to complete the course on time. Keep in mind you can go at your own pace within the 15 week timeframe! 

What happens if I can't complete the program on time?

While we have full faith you'll be able to complete the program within the allotted time, we have a few options to accommodate you based on the program you've chosen. If you are enrolled into the On-Demand Program and are unable to complete within the 15 week mark, you will be able to re-enroll into the course at a 50% discount; resetting the 15 week timeline. 

Do you offer refunds?

Given that access to course materials is immediate upon registering, we do not offer refunds.  However, if you decide you would rather switch to the Live Program, we can discuss based on seat availability.
