Private certification courses

University of Miami departments and organizations, as well as non-affiliated community groups, may request private training courses. 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. 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 minimum of one month advanced notice should be provided to ensure instructor and course material availability. 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.
