Program Structure

In the CEO Certification Program, two weeks are spent on each module. With a total of 18 modules, the Program is approximately 10 months in length. Below is a detailed description of the time commitments and requirements for the CEO Certification Program: 

  • In week 1, Participants watch pre-recorded video lessons from the module preceptor/subject matter expert that takes no longer than 60-minutes. These videos, as well as all of the content you might need, are uploaded to a private website that you get access to where everything is available on demand, any time of the day.
  • In week 2, the Cohort comes together for a 90-minute, discussion based Zoom meeting on Tuesdays at 4 pm EST on a bi-weekly basis. We spend the entirety of this call focused on the module you watched the videos on in conversation through small breakout rooms, large group discussions, Q&A, as well as other conversations along the way. 80% attendance to these live Zoom sessions is required to earn the certification.
