This is the Specialty Program that allows you to use and apply EQ assessments for Youth and Adults in the context of Social and Emotional Learning. 

Please note the certification completion requirements for this course. You have a maximum of 90 days from the start of the course to complete the eLearning including all certification requirements. We highly recommend moving into action much more quickly (you’ll get more out of the process if you jump in; we suggest planning to complete in 30 days. The 90 days is just in case you are unavoidably delayed.) If you are not sure on the requirements for completion, be sure to ask your facilitator so you can plan ahead.

In this program, you’ll learn about:

  • Social and Emotional Learning and its benefits
  • the youth version of the SEI called SEI YV — how it’s different, best practices, and ideas for application
