“The Family Sleep Institute’s Child Sleep Consultant Certification program’s goal is to instruct and teach students on all aspects of sleep related training from newborns to school age children. We feel it’s important for graduating Child Sleep Consultants to help the most families who are struggling with sleep issues regardless of their age and parenting styles. Since all families are different we feel it’s critical that well trained Child Sleep Consultants are able to adjust advice and support to compliment the families parenting styles and wishes. The one philosophy that our Child Sleep Consultants do believe in is the one the works for that individual family. Our certification program exceeds all others in: retention rate of graduates sustaining their businesses from completion of certification, total number of current graduates, graduates with higher educational degrees such as MD’s and PhD’s and average hours spent completing course requirements is over 250+, which is 3x more than other programs.”

The Application Process

The first step in the process of considering new students is assessing location. Since we are an educational institution we do not offer exclusivity of any region, state, province or country to any graduate.  However, since we are an international program we make sure that each class is diverse and represents the larger global community.

After the location has been assessed and is a go, we then move onto the next step where each applicant fills out a detailed and thought provoking application. If the application gets a thumbs up, we then set up a time to interview the applicant over the phone (usually about an hour or so). We want to get a better sense of who you are and whether or not the fit is just right.

We are looking for serious candidates who have a solid understanding of what it is to be a child sleep consultant and also have done their homework researching more about this industry: researched other programs available and understands what sets the Family Sleep Institute’s Child Sleep Consultant Certification program apart from the rest and someone who understand the opportunities, difficulties and rewarding nature that comes with this work. We want candidates who already know that THIS is what they want to do, no doubts, they are ready to do this.

As with any self-made business, in order to grow it efficiently and effectively you will need the: “TIME”, “ENERGY”, “SPACE”, and “DEDICATION” that it needs to evolve into the successful business that it should be. It’s a full time job building your practices and marketing your services! The certification program is rigorous, intensive and time consuming so in order to receive certification all incoming students must be able to commit 110% to the 4 month program and complete all the requirements on-time. We want the best of the best and when we say that we are describing an individual who has that incredible drive: one who is already obsessed with learning about the ins and outs of sleep and finding solutions to sleep problems in general, who has a passion for helping families work through their sleeping issues and last but not least, understands that it’s actually more than a job but a mission to make a difference in this world and change the lives of the families we connect with.

Here at the FSI we are all about equality and learning from each other. No one is better than another. We need each of us to build collectively the knowledge base we all need to help as many families as we can in this world. That shared knowledge base and support is why the FSI Graduate Members are the most successful Child Sleep Consultants in the world. We are very selective in the application process . Our priority is that we make sure that every incoming student is truly ready, driven, educated, dedicated and passionate about this work and has the confidence and hard working attitude to be successful and build on that shared knowledge base that grows with each and every new graduate.

I feel so fortunate to have taken Deb’s class to become a certified Child Sleep Consultant.  In all that she taught us through the basics, case studies, and her own experiences I feel 100% more confident in this industry then when I started.  I am so excited to take what she taught us and implement it to my business and my clients.  I feel ready to take anything on and I owe that to Deb and the Family Sleep Institute.  Thank you Deb!  And I am thrilled to be able to have an ongoing relationship with you and my classmates for a while to come!

Given that I recently graduated with my doctorate in Experimental Psychology from McGill University and I focused on pediatric sleep for my dissertation, I was not sure what to expect from the FSI sleep consulting course. From the first class, I realized that it would greatly exceed my expectations. Deborah and her team have done a superb job in tailoring the course to students from a variety of backgrounds. This is not an easy feat. The assignments that were assigned were incredibly useful and practical to use as a sleep consultant after the program. The course material was informative yet interesting. Most of all, Deb and Becky were available to the students every step of the way – they went above and beyond to support and mentor each and every student who took the program. With my research background, I was particularly impressed with how the material that we were exposed to in this program was based on research evidence. This field is full of recommendations that are not supported by research data and so it was a breadth of fresh air to see that the FSI community supports sleep training strategies that have shown to be effective through wide-scale and rigorous scientific studies. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to specialize in pediatric sleep consulting.

The Family Sleep Institute’s infant and toddler sleep certification program is, hands down, the gold standard in the industry.   Led by child sleep expert, Deborah Pedrick,  who has 15 plus years of experience, and supplemented by a team of experts in fields related to children’s health and development, this incredibly comprehensive program focuses on not only educating you about how to help families establish healthy sleep habits, but also on how to communicate with clients,  to understand developmental differences, to trouble shoot ancillary issues that may impact a child’s sleep, and, importantly, how to start your own business.  Whereas other programs focus on dictating only one way of sleep training, the best part about the  philosophy of the FSI is that it teaches you multiple methods that work and can be catered to families of different parenting philosophies and children of different temperaments – something I have found incredible important and also has helped my business grow.  Thanks to my FSI education (and continuing education and support), supplementing my medical degree, I am helping families worldwide establish healthy sleep habits  – one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done!

In my quest to further my education and add depth to my practice as a Pediatric Registered Nurse I found the Family Sleep Institute.  After researching various programs I chose FSI because of its objective approach, comprehensive curriculum and client centered focus.  Deb combines years of real world knowledge with current research and an extensive support network to give her students the tools they need to successfully start a career as a sleep consultant.  Since completing the program in March I have not only been able to confidently support families on their path to achieving healthy sleep, but have also been able to share my knowledge in my role as prenatal educator for expectant families.  I highly recommend this program to any medical professional looking to fill in the holes in their existing practice.
