When Can I start?
If you are joining our Scheduled Self-Paced Semester, the course will “start” 2 weeks after you purchase the program. You’ll immediately get the instructions on how to enroll as a student and then the welcome module will follow. In the Welcome module, you’ll be able to download your grocery list and purchase (or borrow) the necessary equipment to flow through through the course smoothly. You’ll have 2 weeks to prepare everything before you get the first of many automated emails, that starts with Module 1. Module by module, week by week, you’ll get a motivational email that will serve as a reminder to keep you on track and stay focused. However, with the self-paced option, you can literally start and end whenever you choose. You’ll still get weekly emails, but you can save them in a separate email folder and open them when you plan on making the time for the course. With the self-paced option, you have 5 years access to the course and it’s materials.
If you’re joining our Guided Semester, you’ll get immediate access to the course material and content, however, we won’t officially start until the day we meet as a group on our first weekly group coaching call in the first week of May or the first week of December each year. With the Guided Semester option, you have lifetime access to the course and it’s materials.
In total, if you complete the course at the pace of one module a week on average, you’ll complete Level One in 26 weeks. Level Two slows down to one module every two weeks (ish) and finishes within the year. The Full Raw Food Chef Certificate takes 1 year to complete.
