Many placenta encapsulation programs offer weekend certification programs or short self-study programs. That’s not our style. At APPA, we feel that certification should amount to a body of training that can’t be acquired in a matter of days or even weeks. We aren’t just training you to prepare placentas safely for your clients—we’re training you to be an expert in the field of placenta preparation, with detailed knowledge of safety, research, business, anatomy, and postpartum expectations.
Our modules are designed to completely prepare you to start or expand your career in placenta encapsulation. APPA coursework covers all aspects of being a professional placenta encapsulation specialist, from identifying the most commonly seen placental anomalies to creating your business documents
We expect each module will take anywhere from 2-12 weeks to complete. This means most students complete the entire course in 3-6 months. We pair you with a professional mentor for one-on-one support throughout the course. All of our mentors are seasoned experts eager to answer questions and support you on your journey.
Because how you learn is just as important as the information, APPA has a dedicated online platform (APPA Advance) where all learning styles are utilized: hands-on, visual, and active learning styles are all considered.
APPA Advance, our easy-to-use online learning platform, is accessible wherever you have internet access. Have a few minutes while waiting in line at the grocery store? You have APPA Advance. Scrolling while nursing your little one to sleep? You have APPA Advance. Wherever you go, whatever your internet source, you’ll be able to access your training program. No packets to mail in, no traveling to workshops. Life is busy these days, so we’ve made your training accessible to you wherever and whenever you’re ready to learn.
APPA is a self paced (up to a year) program with open enrollment. Start when you’re ready, go as fast or slow as you want.
As a placenta arts specialist, you’ll learn how to provide a valuable, meaningful service and how to keep you and your clients safe throughout the encapsulation process.
