COVID UPDATE ON PLACENTA TRAINING COMPANY
All trainings though the end of 2020 will take place on the Zoom platform.
PTC has worked to combine the best of online accessibility AND the hands on process to create a hybrid class experience!
Placenta Training Company classes are now guided hands on virtual training sessions.
The training is approximately 10 hours over 3 consecutive days. Due to the hands-on nature of the training and the class size is limited to 5 students and class times may vary slightly.
What is a hybrid hands on virtual training?
Each person will attend all sessions via Zoom and work through the hands on process with a donated placenta with Deb guiding you step by step. The training will still be completely interactive and hands on without the need to travel or be away from family for an extended time. You are required to have your camera on during the hands on portion of training. You are requested to have your camera on during most of the lecture portion, though we realize there are times when shutting off your camera may be required for a short period of time.
Once you register for the training, you will receive detailed instructions and suggestions on gathering your supplies needed for the training and obtaining a donated placenta. Both your supplies and a donated placenta are requirements for the training.
Can 2 or more people share supplies and attend together?
Yes! As long as everyone is comfortable with that process, it's completely acceptable and only one set of supplies and donated placenta will be required.
What happens if I miss a day because of illness or I get called to a birth?
You may catch up on another session. Based on which portion you missed you may need to obtain another donated placenta.
Can I schedule a private class around my schedule?
Potentially, YES, as long as scheduling works for both you and Deb! We can discuss availability and the slight price increase that is required to hold a private training contact Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sample Three Day Training Schedule
Day one: 3.5 hours lecture and Q&A
Day two: 3.5 hours hands on placenta processing, lecture, and Q&A
Day three: 3.5 hours hands on placenta processing, lecture and Q&A
What is the cost for equipment?
While it varies in your area and sale pricing, on average, estimate spending between $200-$300. Deb will ship PPE (face masks, aprons, gloves, etc on request due to shortages in some areas.) It is your responsibility to purchase or borrow your equipment and have it for day two and three of training.
Keep in mind, this equipment is needed for you to begin working with clients. You will truly be ready to start working with encapsulation clients the day after your training is over.
What is the cost for training?
$425 per person
NOTE below on the schedule, there is an initial training discount as one of the first students working with the new format.
Training includes a workbook and manual, PPE for your training if requested, a private FB group for questions and additional information after your training, and continued access to Deb for questions.
How quickly can I expect to see a return on my training investment?
On average a new placenta encapsulationist will earn back the money spent on equipment and training within 3 encapsulations.

Payment plans are available.

Many of us are working from home and have children. You can make the determination based on your learning style and your children's temperaments whether or not you need to have childcare. Keep in mind that crying or fussy babies can make learning challenging for other students and yourself. Please mute yourself if you have background noise. . You will not be refunded if you miss portions of the training due to your baby, but you may attend another session.
You will be allowed to transfer to a different PTC training should you not be able to attend for any reason including sickness or being called to a birth.
Payments may be made online via the PayPal button next to each training. You may also contact Deb to set up alternative payment options, should you prefer not to use PayPal.
After attending a PTC training, you may audit additional trainings for $25 if space is available. YES, really, you can watch and participate in another training. This is so beneficial to many students who wish to get a deeper grasp on the material.
During this time PTC is not offering host benefits until we can return to in person trainings hopefully in 2021.
