How Online Training Works
Enroll Online at Any Time
With no enrollment or study deadlines, you can enroll in the sleep consultant course whenever you're ready, and start working on your course right away. Within a day of enrolling, you'll receive access to your online student center, course materials, and assignment templates.
Study Your Course Materials from Home

Have questions while studying?
Just like in the classroom, sometimes you'll have a question about your course or assignment instructions. You can always reach out to your student advisor for help, either by phone, email or via Live Chat. If your advisor cannot answer your question, they will pass your request along to your tutor who will get back to you as quickly as they can!
Complete & Submit Your Assignments
Your assignments are completed at your leisure, and submitted to your tutor for grading via the online student center. As part of your practical sleep consultant training, you'll complete different types of assignments that are designed to test your knowledge and challenge your skills.
- Quizzes are used to evaluate your core knowledge on a number of topics.
- Long-answer or “discussion” questions challenge you to think through various scenarios and provide detailed answers where you can take the time to explain your reasoning.
- Case studies and other practical assignments allow you to experience real-world sleep consulting scenarios. As part of this course, you'll be presented with a number of case studies and will be asked to create full sleep plans to address unique circumstances.
Pro tip: Students who treat their case studies and practical assignments like they're dealing with an actual paying client are those who are the most successful upon graduation. Don't skimp on your practical assignments!

Once you understand the fundamentals of sleep consulting and how to build a sleep plan unique to your clients' needs, you'll start to put these skills to use while learning to be an effective consultant and coach. You'll learn how to best work with different types of clients, and how to translate your knowledge as a sleep expert to caregivers who will be implementing your sleep plan on an ongoing basis. You'll go over a number of case studies of unique situations you're likely to encounter as a sleep consultant, to get a first-hand look at how you'll work professionally once you graduate.
Unit D: (Optional) Business Training Unit
