How much time will I invest?

Signs' Study Groups, which are the basis for Individual Study Modules, have been PROVEN a highly successful way to prepare for certification processes.

The phrase, "No pain, no gain" may have little to do with exercise but it has a great deal to do with preparing effectively, efficiently, and sufficiently for certification! You are making an investment in your future and that costs some money and also your time and energy.

Signs is so sure you will be successful if you fully commit to this process that we have an unconditional guarantee: if you do commit (meeting all of the requirements of the ISM) and do not pass, you can participate in the module you were previously involved in until you DO pass! We are committed to your professional development.

With that said, you can expect to spend at least five hours per week toward these study groups. Many spend more based on personal study habits, level of meticulousness, length and volume of posts, research, etc. The more you put in now, the more you can feel confident of passing! It's an investment of four to six months of your time with guidance and encouragement all the way through the home stretch! This effort of obtaining certification and professional development should never be taken lightly or without thought. Make sure you can make the commitment to the several months and join us on your way to certification!
