Elise is committed to helping motivated students moving in the right direction towards becoming a successful trainer or consultant and has designed a rigorous internship program. The internship has the workload and expectations of a typical college level course. Due to limited scheduling availability, Elise can only accept interns for three month rotations.

To start the process, you will need to submit an Application. Select applicants will be contacted for a phone interview.

Successful applicants are:

– motivated
– driven
– able to commit 5-10 hours a week to observation, hands-on practice, and assisting in class
– able to commit additional time for reading and completing on-line assignments
– able to drive with a reliable source of transportation

The initial internship has two payment options. Option A is to pay in full at the commencement of the internship, $600. Option B is to pay at the start of each month, $250/month for three months.

Elise is available for on-going mentoring to graduated interns, CPDT-KA’s, Certified IAABC members, and CCBC-KA’s at her regular rate of $85/hour. Need to discuss a case you’re working on? Reserve your phone appointment now!
