Coherence Advantage™ a HeartMath® Trainer Certification Program

Join the global community of HeartMath Certified Professionals and be a positive force in the lives of others.

Coherence Advantage™ is a revised and upgraded version of Resilience Advantage™.

The Coherence Advantage Trainer Certification gives you the skills and confidence to empower others to elevate their life experience by connecting with their heart’s intuitive guidance—turning challenging days into ones with more ease and flow.

You will be able to teach people how to shift into an optimal state which creates the necessary foundation for clearer thinking, making better choices, staying composed in times of chaos or stress, better sleep and sustainable improvements in health and wellness.

Organizations made up of people functioning in a state of higher coherence are more innovative, resilient and aligned. This can improve strategic thinking, increase the ability to execute on key objectives and reduce costly mistakes.

The Science of Heart Coherence

Heart Coherence is a high performance and healthy state – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually – that implies harmonious order, connectedness, stability and efficient use of energy.

Heart Rhythm Coherence

Hundreds of peer-reviewed studies have confirmed the numerous benefits associate with people operating in higher heart coherence.

Pre and Post measures (6 to 9 weeks apart) on the normed and validated Personal and Organizational Quality Assessment, on over 11,500 individuals, showed 24% improvement in the ability to focus; 30% improvement in sleep; and a 38% improvement in calmness. They also showed a 46% drop in anxiety, 48% drop in fatigue and 56% drop in depression.

“I am very happy that I connected with the HeartMath family. It’s really been a blessing. I took the Resilience Advantage (Now Coherence Advantage) certification training and I have been able to use the tools I learned in the courses I teach. I have been helping a lot of people get connected to their heart. I’ve been doing it for most of my life, I just didn’t know how to train on it. Now I feel like I have all the tools I need to fulfill my mission, even in a greater way. Thank you HeartMath.”

The care, the compassion, the coherence, the love and the appreciation and the support. No wonder I stayed awake even though it was 12 am to 7 am my time. Highly grateful for everything I learnt and experienced and now can't wait to take this to the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing! I've done a lot of things in my time and without a doubt, Resilience Advantage was one of the best training courses of all time. When I say "life-changing," I really mean it. The Heart Coherence practice is not only changing me, it has completely changed the focus, approach, and trajectory of my business and relationships, and as a result, is changing my life. It's so much better already that I can't imagine how good it's going to get! The trainers are excellent. The materials provided for implementation and success are remarkable (and unbelievable in the best way). The experience of being immersed in a heart-focused space with like-hearted people for five straight days is one I will carry with me. While I had been pretty stressed about the teach-back days, I am beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to learn, teach, and be supported in a group that way. It was just a great experience all around. Thank you, HeartMath!
