I live pretty far from these places, do I have to attend a SAR?
Yes, you do. SAR is mandatory for gaining your certification at SCU. There is a discount for all SCU students, and we can provide details of nearby hotels and hostels. In rare cases, we may offer a self-study SAR option.
Can I apply for AASECT Certification when I complete my training?
This program meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 220 ONLINE CE credits toward 132 approved CEs. These CE credits may be applied toward AASECT certification and renewal of certification.
This program is offered through Dr. Patti Britton’s AASECT-approved Individual CE Providership. Only Sex Coach U enrolled students who have been approved to graduate as Certified Sex Coaches™ may apply for AASECT CEs. Any application for AASECT CEs must be submitted to and approved by Dr. Patti no later than June 30, 2020. This offer expires at that time.
As an approved AASECT provider, our program has been approved, meaning you do not need to have a supervisor to take our program. You will earn AASECT-approved CE credits at the completion of the program, where you will be awarded the Certified Sex Coach™ designation.
If you are looking to obtain certification by AASECT as a sex educator, you will need to get an AASECT supervisor and have an approved supervision contract before you start supervision. We currently have an AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator Supervisor on our team, Dr. Martha Tara Lee, who you can contact if you choose to pursue this option.
AASECT Certification is awarded on a case-by-case basis, according to a candidate’s background and whether they meet stated AASECT criteria. Learn more here.
For further information about their certification and supervision requirements, we recommend contacting AASECT directly
We do not guarantee AASECT certification will be granted as a result of completion of the Core Certified Sex Coach™ training program.
