Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to attend all 4 sessions in order to get my final SWEET Institute certificate of completion for the whole Certificate Course?
Yes. If you miss a live session, you must do its self-study (recorded) version prior to attending the subsequent week's live session. Otherwise, you risk accumulating gaps, which may, in turn, lead to an inability to use this model adequately to help your clients. You will therefore not be able to receive a final certificate of completion.
Can I start this Certificate Course even after it already started?
Yes, you can. We ask that you do the past, self-study (recorded) sessions prior to attending the subsequent week's live session.
Does this Certificate Course offer CEUs?
Please see the Key Information section above for detailed approval information.
Are there any other requirements to getting a SWEET Institute final certificate besides completing each and every one of the classes?
(1) After each of the classes, you must complete an evaluation if you attended live. If you attended any of the classes as a self-study, you must pass a post-test and complete an evaluation for those classes. You must score at least 80% on the post-test to obtain a certificate for that particular class. (2) At the end of the Certificate Course, email us all of the certificates associated with this course at [email protected] and request your SWEET Institute final certificate of completion. Once we have verified all the information, we will send you the final certificate of completion. There is no exception to this requirement. No one will be able to receive a final certificate of completion for this Certificate Course without having met the above requirement.
What are your reimbursement policies?
Anyone who registered for this Certificate Course through any of the payment plans, and who wishes to withdraw for whatever reason, is entitled for a full reimbursement with no questions asked other than for improvement purposes. The full reimbursement will be minus the price of each single class attended by the date of wish to withdraw.
Is this whole Certificate Course at No additional cost for all SWEET Members?
If you have an unlimited membership plan, then yes, all courses are included in your plan including all our Certificate Courses. (The only exception to this is for SWEET Events.) If you have a membership plan that is not an unlimited plan, you can consider upgrading your membership, as this will save you thousands of dollars in the long run. If you are unsure whether your membership plan is unlimited, please email us at [email protected].
