FAQs

1) Why become certified? Anyone can use The Habit Factor® app and/or book to work with clients for free. Yes. We recognize many professionals currently use The Habit Factor book/methodology and app with their clients, hence, the desire to create a certified program to ensure those professionals have a thorough understanding of the material. Certification allows professionals to promote the methodology by name and with related, registered trademarks. Additionally, this program guarantees that our certified members can distinguish their work/profession from others by identifying their practice with the Habit Factor logo signature.

2)What is the cost? What are the requirements/qualifications? Please see qualification requirements below. #17 Just $300 annual membership.

3) Can I get my money back if I don't like it? Absolutely. You have 60 Days from date of enrollment to receive a full refund if you decide this isn't what you want. There is no risk.
