Course Information

Need to get licensed by year-end but don't have 2 weeks to spare for a full-time course?  Want to save money on the course fee.  We at IBAH are looking for volunteers to participate in a new RIBO Licensing format.  The Course is FREE to any IBAH member - you just pay for the textbook and exam fee.  Here is how it works:

  1. Enroll by November 8th and do self-study using pre-recorded lectures
  2. You have access to a private coach for 1 hour a week for any Q&A
  3. November 29-Dec 3 there is a one-week online intensive review and exam preparation (9:30 - 3:30 pm each day). 
Sharon will be preparing the lecture, offering free coaching sessions for exam preparation as well as hosting the one-week intensive review via Zoom week of November 29th – Sharon looks forward to seeing you there!
