Our Childbirth Educator (CBE) program provides a comprehensive and engaging educational experience meant to prepare you as a strong educator in your community!
Our collegiate designed program offers the opportunity to learn pedagogical skills, gain confidence as an adult educator, and become an expert in antenatal topics that you will share with your clients and community.
By the end of our program you will have a specifically designed prenatal curriculum that you have designed specifically for your community.
If you are ready to show your teaching skills to the world…. CBE is for you!
Step #1 of our CBE curriculum is the CBE Kickstarter; a series of small assignments that are meant to grow your confidence and skill in a variety of antenatal topics.
Students are able to “test the waters”of CBE course development, components of educational communication, and community outreach considerations.
Students can complete these modules at their own pace, and when they feel ready can register for Step #2: the CBE Certification packet!
