  • Are there any payment plans available?
    Yes, you can choose from three payment options. Of course, you can pay in full when you register. But if you’d prefer installments, you can pay $500 upon registering, then be automatically charged for the balance on March 1, 2018. Or, you can pay $500 upon registering and be automatically charged for four separate installments on March 1, April 2, May 1 and June 1, 2018.
  • I’m in a different time zone and/or cannot attend live webinar sessions. How will this affect me?
    No problem. Each session will be recorded and available to watch or re-watch any time throughout the course. We’ve had several people in different time zones do this in the past. We’re also available during office hours and through email support, so you can get your questions answered.
  • Why does this program cost so much?
    We understand that certification is pricier up front than some of our other offerings. We’re confident that the return on your investment will be more than worthwhile when you see direct results in the growth of your business, and/or as an official MINDBODY Certified Business Consultant. Consider this an investment in yourself and your business’s future. You’ll get access to hundreds of hours of content created by our expert business education team. We see businesses who participate in any MBU program grow 20% more than similar businesses.
  • I’m highly motivated and don’t need live training. Is there a self-paced training available online?
    We hope to offer a learn-as-you-go option by the end of 2018.
  • I’ve been using the MINDBODY software forever, and have been helping my friends with their questions. I feel like I’m already a consultant.
    This certification program focuses on best business practices beyond MINDBODY software knowledge, so you can consult with businesses on how to grow their attendance, revenue and retention. We are currently working on a different certification that focuses on MINDBODY software knowledge. Learn more about this new offering.
