How do busy social workers and counselors like me have time to enroll in courses?

Our courses are presented in two formats for convenience. We offer live courses and on-demand course, which means once they are released each month, you can watch at any time. They are purposefully divided into small segments so that you can access them during your downtime. 

Do I have to show up for live sessions to benefit? What if I miss them?

Don’t worry! All live sessions are recorded and stored in our online portal. This will allow you to listen to the recordings at your convenience. 

I’ve been social worker or counselor for a while. Will the courses and strategies be new for me?

I understand your concern. I have been in the field for 22 years, but I have only started learning about the business of social work about 11 years ago. Our courses are designed to promote evolution from a business perspective. You will learn new business trends and strategies that will help you renew and shift your mindset.

In a world where the business stakes keep rising, social workers need a first-class business education.

I’m still in the idea formation phase for my business. Is this academy for me?

Most definitely. Our launch track was created for the inspiring entrepreneur. The launch courses will help you gain clarity about your business approach, business structure and everything in between.

Can I earn continuing education credit for enrolling?

Yes! If you signed up for the CEU membership. Our CEU courses are approved by the National Association of Social Workers. You can earn up to 21 Category II Continuing Education Credits. There’s no additional charge for the CEUs. However, you must  complete the modules, take a short quiz, and boom…you get CEUs!

What are some benefits of taking on-line courses?

The primary benefit of taking on-line courses is centered around convenience. You can learn from the comfort of your home or wherever you like. Also, you can build relationships with social workers from around the world as you emerge in engaging dialogue about business matters and social issues. Furthermore, you will have access to Dr. Buckingham and other experts at the push of a button on your computer. Lastly, you will have access to the private Facebook group where you will receive support from Dr. Buckingham and others who are committed to building financial prosperity.

How long do I have access to course modules?

Enrollment in the academy offers you 12-month access to courses. After you complete a course you will receive a certificate and will be able to use the PDFs and resources that you download.  

How does the tuition payment work? Is it a monthly tuition plan?

You can make a one-time payment. If you cannot make a one-time payment, you purchase the courses separately at a higher price.  This option does not include academy benefits.

I like the idea of enrolling in a business academy, but I do not have the tuition to invest at this time.

I totally understand. As social workers and counselors we have not be trained to think about or invest in business ventures. Many of us only invest in CEUs sponsored training. Unfortunately, this behavior has caused many of us to struggle in our businesses from a financial perspective. We have historically been undercompensated for the work that we do. We dedicate our lives to helping others, but often cannot afford the things that will enhance our lives. Given this, I challenge you to think about the return on investment.

By enrolling in the academy, you will gain knowledge and learn strategies for acquiring financial wealth. Stop depriving yourself and invest in you for once. You deserve it and your business will thrive.
