  2. Independent trainer’s license – for those who wish to sell and deliver HeartMath resilience training in any market, including the corporate, education, nonprofit, government, law-enforcement, military, general public and health-care sectors.

When you complete the HeartMath Certified Trainer program, you also may elect to incorporate any of the Resilience Advantage™ modules, tools or techniques into your existing training programs.

“The Inner-Ease™ technique is working really well. People feel like they are in a hurricane, so they relate to being the ‘eye of the storm.’ They are being pulled in too many different directions. Inner-Ease is the tool they can relate to the most.”

Shelly Scamardo Kantor, Health Promotion Supervisor, Tampa General Hospital

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Transformational I feel VERY confident in using the HeartMath strategies and teaching others. The materials provided are thorough, complete and facilitator ready. The pre-work/mentoring was extremely helpful. The master HeartMath facilitators who led the course are great role models and full of wisdom. Thank YOU HeartMath!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Setting the Foundation Making a Difference I left Corporate America so I could make a difference in other people's lives. I wanted my legacy to be one of compassion and outreach and not chasing the mighty dollar (which I did for the past 25 years). This program has prepared me to make a difference in my family, community and even society as a whole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best strength-based, practical feedback ever The deeply inspiring and diverse cohort, committed Master Trainers, and a supportive structure for teach-backs made the training a joy despite the dense content, performance anxiety of teach-backs, and long hours of sitting and studying. It was an intense five days but I walked away with practical skills, confidence in the program, and a sense of belonging to an amazing community of people who live and lead from the heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A human OS upgrade The HeartMath Certified Trainer Program was incredible on two distinct levels -- personal and professional. From a personal perspective, we cannot 'un-know' what we've learned, therefor providing our brain (Operating System) with a much-needed knowledge upgrade. Scientifically proven information of what many of us have already suspected and the resulting emotional intelligence provides a unique and undeniable paradigm shift. Professionally, it is an honor to present this information to human kind. There is a real potential to help provide an avenue for universal tolerance and self-mastery through each individual's ability to self-examine their reaction to stress and understand the benefits of operating from the heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affirming, Inspiring, Informative I came looking for information and tools that would help me as a consultant deal with the current state of many workplaces in which employees are exhausted by the pace of seemingly unending change. The techniques, research, and future-oriented perspective were just what I needed. I've already invited two of my friends to connect to HeartMath, and after reading all the research and info on demonstrated impact of HeartMath's work over the past three decades, they've signed up for training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring and life changing. The HearthMath Certified Trainer program is very inspiring. Although I know HeartMath for a long time now and referred to their science in many of my workshops and coachings I finally had the privilege to experience this program. I recommend this training to anyone who wants to improve themselves and pay-it-forward.
