Traditional doula training workshop, with some online flair!
We get it. We know that not everyone will learn best without a hands on workshop! There is something to be said about the benefits of watching, and doing specific skills. Being versatile is our mission and we plan to stand up to our name.
Although our doula training workshop is not a required part of your doula certification, it is included in the Basic, Business Starter and DoulaVersity Professional packages. This includes workshops in Fort Worth and Boise areas only.
Contact Trisha@DoulaVersity.com to find out how to sponsor a training in your area and receive your training for free.
Students must still complete all 15 modules online as part of their certification requirements. For a detailed outline of all requirements look here.
