You will have 60 days to complete the 16-hour Wedding Planning Certification Program + 30 days to complete the 7-hour Wedding Design Fundamentals Certification Program. After you complete one program, the next will be added to your dashboard. You may pause and resume your progress at any time. Most planners complete the first program within 14 days, but if you need more than the given 60 days, you can extend your course for a fee of $100 per additional 30 days. The same applies for if you need more time than the given 30 days for the second course. Simply email our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension. Both of these programs are in the format of a video presentation. After you complete the first program, and once your full payment has been received, your Lifetime Membership will be activated. If you choose the payment plan option, please know that 1. You won't receive your credentials until after your final payment is received, and 2. We are unable to accelerate the billing process if you finish your course(s) prior to your final payment being received. We look forward to welcoming you into our family of Certified Wedding & Event Planners!
