The flexibility Modular Teacher Training program encourages students to create the schedule that best fits their needs.

We offer each of our modules several times throughout the year at our greenmonkey studios and at host studios around the country. Modules are available as weekend intensive options and in our 17-day summer intensives, which are offered in our south Florida studios each summer. You have the total freedom to choose when, where, with whom, and in which order you will take each of the 6 required modules, and you have 18 months to complete them all.

We ask participants to be prepared to devote their entire days to the trainings. While schedules vary somewhat from day to day, a typical day of the modular training looks like**:

Friday | 8:00am – 8:30pm
Saturday | 8:00am – 8:30pm
Sunday | 8:00am – 6:00pm

PLEASE NOTE: There is pre-assigned and pre-requisite reading, journaling, and homework for this program.
**Breaks will be given throughout the day and start and end times may vary.
