We also have the Framework online option, a series of modules that you do in your own time followed by a one-on-one consultation conducted by phone.

Workshop Cancelation

 We are canceling the workshop scheduled for August 28 & 29, 2021 due to low enrollment and increased Covid concerns. We are offering you a few options.

  1. Register instead for one of our upcoming dates. September 25 & 26, October 23 & 24, November 20 & 21, or December 11 & 12. Of course, these plans are all pending on the same factors we are dealing with now. I wish I had better news.
  2. Do the Framework program online through us. You would still pay $100 to get your certificate - $75 to Framework for the program itself and $25 to Coastal for a one-on-one consultation conducted by phone. You would then sign up for Framework, pay them $75, and we would bill you $25 for the consultation. Framework is a set of 7 modules that you do in your own time. You do not have to attend something like a Zoom meeting. You can register using the link below.
