You can become certified to provide HeartMath resilience training – The Resilience Advantage™ – to groups anywhere in North America and many countries elsewhere in the world.

  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 Outstanding! What I was most surprised about the in the HeartMath® Certified Trainer program was the camaraderie that was created between the participants AND the instructors. The feeling from Day 1 was that we were on a shared adventure. The teaching techniques supported all types of adult learners, the program was scheduled to allow study, recharge and connection opportunities. I left Boulder Creek feeling like I can do this work, that I have access to the necessary resources and support, and that we, as a collective, have tools to help people change their worlds. Thank you!
