Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if this is the right training opportunity for me?

Are you an experienced practitioner looking to enhance conversations with your job seekers, employers, and staff or colleagues? Do you want to shift conversations to accentuate solutions rather than challenges? If so, this program offers:

  • a basic understanding of solution-focused tools and techniques, 
  • ways to explore how the solution-focused approach aligns with the career development process, and
  • the ability to engage in a reflective practice in order to intentionally integrate solution-focused tools and techniques into your role as a career practitioner. 

If you’re unsure, we invite you to book a discussion with our Enrollment Coordinator to further explore best fit. You can schedule a time that works for you by emailing: [email protected]

How many weeks does it take to complete this certificate program?

This is an online 5-week program (5 weekly modules) and will require a total of 25 hours to complete.

How many hours should I dedicate to this program each week?

We recommend allocating at least five (5) hours per week. One (1) hour per week will be allocated to the weekly live webinar, while the remaining weekly commitments can be completed on your own time.

Where will the online training take place?

Online training will take place via CASE’s learning portal, called "Learn Worlds". Your login credentials will be emailed to you before the program is scheduled to begin.

Where will I be able to access the meeting link for the weekly webinars?

You can access the meeting details within the learning portal itself. Additionally, your instructor will regularly send you the meeting details in their weekly communications.

Can I complete the program requirements on my own time?

While this program is primarily asynchronous, learners are required to attend the live webinars in the designated weeks and submit all weekly commitments by Sunday evening every week.

What are the weekly commitments?

To successfully complete this program, learners are required to complete the following by Sunday evening every week: 

  • Review all modular content and resources.

  • When applicable, attend the weekly live webinar (weeks 1, 3, 5).  
  • Complete the knowledge check.  
  • Submit the learning activity (requires an 80% grade to pass).

What happens if I cannot attend one of the weekly webinars or submit my weekly commitments on time?

We encourage all learners to schedule allocated time to complete program requirements (and attend the weekly live webinars) in advance to prevent meeting conflicts and promote a positive learning experience.
However, we recognize that due to an unforeseen circumstance you may miss one of the webinars or require an extension to complete your weekly commitments. In this scenario, please reach out directly to your Facilitator as soon as possible to develop a learning plan, which will help you stay on track.

When do the weekly live webinars take place?

In Solution-Focused Career Practitioner, the weekly live webinars occur during weeks one (1), three (3) and five (5). Your instructor will provide a training calendar giving specific dates and timing details.

What is your refund/cancellation policy?

In order to provide you with the best possible learning experience, we keep class sizes for Solution-Focused Career Practitioner training small. Due to this limited seating, we request that if you must cancel, you do so at least 14 days before the scheduled start of the class to receive a full refund. If you must cancel with less than 14 days notice, we will do our best to fill your spot with another interested participant. If we are successful, we will reimburse you for your full registration fees. If we are not able to fill your spot, we will refund you 50% of your fees. We are not able to offer refunds for cancellations made after the course has begun.
