Expert 1 on 1 Coaching for testing retakes

Results are important to us, as it is one of our company values. Being able to see progress and have an improvement plan is essential. If a student does not pass the certification exam, we will provide information about the sections they struggled on. This information creates an excellent starting point when preparing for the exam retake. To increase the likelihood of success, we also offer an exclusive opportunity to provide individualized support.

Our resident NLPA Subject Matter Expert (SME) is available to provide one-on-one coaching sessions focused on exam retake preparations. Each session is 30 minutes long. Together with our SME, students will dive into the exam’s specific areas where improvement is needed. We provide this service for $200 per session.
