The Basic Questions
How long is my certification valid for?
Certifications are good for a year after completing the online course.
What is included in the price?
$599 includes access to all video and quizzes (after one month, the price will increase to $699)
How do I stay certified?
To stay certified, you’ll need to stay current. There will be yearly “update” courses available to anyone who has completed certifications in the previous year. To maintain your certification, you will need to pay a small annual fee and complete the annual “update” coursework. Annual cost of recertification will be $59.
Will I be listed as certified on Driveline’s website or marketed in any way?
No. Coaches completing the certification will receive the designation of having completed the course but we will not market your completion. We will confirm your completion or non-completion of coursework to third parties upon proof of a coach marketing themselves as “certified” or having completed the course.
What rights do I have to use Driveline in my own marketing of my program, facility or skills?
Upon completion of the course, you will be certified in that course. We do not give permission to individuals or programs to represent they are “Driveline” (ex. “Driveline of Nevada” or “The only Driveline program in Moscow!”).
Representing your instructors as “Driveline-certified” or a variant is an appropriate designation.
