Frequently Asked Questions

Which pricing track should I sign up for?

The General Track is designed for individuals seeking personal growth, a general introduction to The Body Positive, or new knowledge to bring into non-clinical professional settings.

The Clinical Track is designed for Master's level therapists and registered dietitians who require Continuing Education Hours for your license. All courses in this track include a Certificate of Completion indicating the number of CE Hours granted. Scroll down for more specific questions regarding the Clinical Track.

What are CE Hours? Should I get them?

CE Hours are Continuing Education Hours that clinical professionals require in order to keep their licenses up to date. We offer them for Master’s level therapists and registered dietitians. If you don’t hold one of these professional licenses, CE Hours are not for you.

How do I use the platform?

Once the courses are launched, you’ll have access to the curriculum. The first slide will explain how to move through the lessons, watch videos, and download worksheets.

Can I share my course or bundle of courses with others?

We ask that you do not share any of the content in this course, or your login, with other people. As a nonprofit, courses like this are a primary source of financial support so we can provide scholarships to low-income individuals for our trainings and workshops, and continue to develop new content. Sharing your login or any downloaded content violates our Terms of Use. That said, we are happy to offer discounts if you’d like to take these courses with a group. Just send us an email at courses@thebodypositive.org for more information.

How long do I have to complete the course?

You have as much time as you want! Our courses are self-paced, so once you sign up you'll be able to explore our curriculum in the timeframe that best fits your schedule.

What if I complete an individual course and decide I want to do the bundle?

Great, we’re glad you’re ready for more! Email us at courses@thebodypositive.org once you complete your first course and we’ll send you a coupon code to register for the rest of the bundle at a discounted price.

Are the courses available in other languages than English?

Not yet. We hope to transcribe into other languages in the near future.

Is your platform mobile-friendly?

Yes! You should be able to access all our content on your mobile device.

Do the courses have accessibility features?

All course videos have closed captioning. There are also written versions of featured audio meditations as well as audio recordings of the handouts. We don’t yet have audio recordings of worksheets, but hope to in the future.

Are there group discounts available?

Yes. If you’d like to register for our courses as a group, please email courses@thebodypositive.org to get your expanded team discount code.

Do you offer refunds?

If you complete your purchased course, we are unable to offer a refund. If, within 30 days of your purchase, however, you start the course and decide it’s not right for you before you’re halfway through, please contact us at courses@thebodypositive.org and we will discuss your refund options. We cannot offer refunds if it's been more than 30 days since your purchase.

How do I join the Facebook community?

Inside the course curriculum, you’ll be given a link to our private Facebook group. After requesting to join, we will confirm your course registration and approve you.

Do I get a certificate of completion?

If you’ve signed up for the Clinical Track and pass the quiz upon completion, you’ll receive your Certificate with the CE Hours for the course(s) that you took. If you’re in the General Track but you need a Certificate of Completion, please contact us at courses@thebodypositive.org.

What happens once I complete the online courses?

If you are interested in continuing your Body Positive education, you might consider becoming a licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator. Sign up for the Be Body Positive Professional Licensing Package and you’ll get access to the Professional Orientation for just $100 and a spot at one of our upcoming live, two-day facilitator trainings. Not sure yet about the training? No problem. You can decide to sign up for a training at a later date, and we’ll give you a $183.50 discount if you’ve already taken the Professional Orientation.


Questions regarding the Clinical Track

Will I receive a license or certification upon completion of the courses?

No. The online courses are intended as a comprehensive introduction to our Model. The only way to become a licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator is to attend an in-person Be Body Positive Facilitator Training. If you’re interested in coming to a training, you can get a great deal by purchasing the Be Body Positive Professional Licensing Package, which includes the Professional Orientation Bundle and attendance at one of our live trainings, all for just $100 more than the cost of attending a training.

Can I share the activities I learn in these courses with my clients?

If you think your clients would benefit from the activities in the courses, we recommend having them sign up for the Be Body Positive Fundamentals courses. You can also get a commission for recommending our courses to your clients. Please email info@thebodypositive.org to learn more about this option.

How will I get credit for completing the course?

In order to get a Certificate of Completion, you'll need to finish 100% of the course, fill out our evaluation, and score at least 80% on the course's final quiz. Once all these steps are complete, we'll email you your Certificate.

Do I have more than one chance to complete the quiz?

If you don’t pass the quiz on your first try, send us an email at courses@thebodypositive.org and we’ll allow you to take it again.

Who provides CE Hours and who are they for?

The Body Positive has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6698. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. The Body Positive is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.

The Body Positive's online self-study course for professionals has been approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration for CPEUs. CDR Credentialed Practitioners are responsible for choosing a learning need code (LNC) for this course that best meets their individual goals.

We currently provide CE Hours for Master's level therapists and registered dietitians.

What happens once I complete the online courses?

If you are interested in continuing your Body Positive education, you might consider becoming a licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator. Sign up for the Be Body Positive Professional Licensing Package and you’ll get access to the Professional Orientation AND a spot at one of our upcoming live, two-day facilitator trainings, all for just $100 more than the cost of the training itself. Not sure yet about the training? No problem. You can decide to sign up for a training at a later date, and we’ll give you a $183.50 discount if you’ve already taken the Professional Orientation. We also invite you to remain active in our Body Positive Institute Community Facebook page indefinitely. Community is essential in this work!

I know that I want to attend a Be Body Positive Facilitator Training and I want to register for the Professional Licensing Package, but I’m not able to attend any of your currently scheduled trainings. Can I register now and wait for a training that works with my schedule?

Unfortunately not. You must be available to attend one of our currently scheduled trainings in order to purchase this option. You can either wait for a training that works with your schedule and register then, or you can purchase the Professional Orientation now, and enjoy a $183.50 discount off a training in the future.

What is your cancellation policy for the Be Body Positive Professional Licensing Package?

30 days in advance: We keep $400 and refund you the rest. This covers the Professional Orientation online courses (which you’ll still have lifetime access to) and a processing fee.

15-29 days in advance: 50% refund

14 days or less: 25% refund
