As a registered nurse and new mom, I often felt torn leaving the house for my shift at the hospital. I loved working with patients and making a difference, but I didn’t love the long hours that kept me from my little one. 

Becoming a sleep and parent consultant has allowed me to nurture my passions, enjoy a fulfilling career, and care for my family.

Hundreds of my students have now had that same experience—and I want the same for you!

A motivated and driven consultant who follows the steps outlined in our program can expect to earn back their tuition investment in three months or less.

What is the coursework like?

The Sleep Consultant Certification Program is comprised of seven modules covering both the science of sleep and the business of consulting.

Each module contains:
● Videos

The program culminates in a final exam, where you’ll use everything you’ve learned to create a sleep program for a client.

How do I become certified?

Exams are graded within four business days of receipt. You’ll be notified via email with your exam grade, and upon passing you’ll receive a printable certificate, Certified Sleep Consultant digital badge, and instructions for setting up your one-page profile on the IPSP website.

How long does this certification last?

Unlike other programs, we provide lifetime certification. You won’t pay any renewal fees, and you’ll have access to the course materials, plus any updates, forever!

Is the IPSP program "Accredited"?

A question we get asked often here at the IPSP is if our program is “Accredited”. It is important to note that currently there is no government recognized organization that issues accreditation for sleep consulting certification. 

Sleep consulting is a private and non-medical coaching service, therefore THERE IS NO ACCREDITATION process for ANY SCHOOL.

It is not not possible and not necessary to gain accreditation. If a school promises you this, this should be a huge red flag as it is simply not possible to be an accredited program.

We believe in full-transparency at the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting, using fancy words to mislead our students is dishonest and quite frankly, it’s illegal. You can read more about that and how to spot fake accreditation here on the United States Department of Education website.
