Private Certification Courses

University of Miami departments and organizations, as well as non-affiliated community groups, may request private training courses. Herbert Wellness Center instructors will work with you to find a convenient day and time; however, private training courses will be scheduled based on instructor and facility availability. A minimum of one month advanced notice should be provided to ensure instructor and course material availability.

While a 6 to 1 student to instructor ratio is recommended, classes may accommodate up to 12 students at a time, but no less than 6 students. A room rental fee will be assessed for requested trainings, in addition to the course fee per participant. Private classes are not available outside of the Herbert Wellness Center.
