What do the Brainfit® Courses cover?

Training to become a Brainfit® Coach comprises three to four sections, depending on what you want to do with your new-found knowledge:

  1. Memory and the Six Key Skills (6 Modules, each with 6 sub-sections)
  2. The Brain and How it Works (6 Modules, each with 6 sub-sections)
  3. The Business of Brainfit® Coaching (10 Modules)
  4. Access to Ready-to-Go presentation, course and workshop visuals and transcripts.

Is there a Fast-Track if I am already trained?

If you are already working as a coach, teacher or other instructing occupation, you may be able to fast-track your training as a Brainfit® Coach, knowing that there will need to be personal time spent working through the teaching manual if you plan to offer classes. (The teaching manual is supplied with The Business of Brainfit® Coaching course and may be purchased separately for those not completing that module. (Of course, you may simply be interested in learning more about the Brain and Memory without becoming a Coach in the meantime – that’s fine. Many people choose this option.)

How does the training work?

Once your payment has been received, you gain your own log-in to the system and your training begins. There is 10-20 minute video for each part and a downloadable transcript. There is a multiple-choice answer section at the end of each module which must be completed before moving to the next. 

Alongside the theory and practical modules, with The Business of Brainfit® Coaching you will be offered, free-of-charge, the premium on-line brain training course Memory Tune® to help strengthen your knowledge base before commencing your own classes. (Normally $169.00)

What happens after that?

Once you become a Brainfit® Coach, you will need to devote time to annotating the presentation slides to help you with key points as you are leading your own classes. You receive your certificate, a range of marketing materials, digital resources and access to the private Forum for Accredited Coaches. You are also invited to join the regular Zoom meetings with other Coaches where decisions are made and any issues arising can be discussed.

Is there a licensing fee to use the materials?
