Preparation Requirements

The Flex Track does not have any preparation requirements. However, we highly recommend that you read The Joy Switch before attending.

Tracks 1, 2, and 3 have required reading and require the purchase and completion of a preparatory online course. The online coursework includes viewing videos and answering questions. Ideally, students will also engage in the online forum with others working through the same materials. We recommend beginning your course at least 2-3 months in advance to have enough time to complete the prep course as it will involve 25-30 hours of work.

Below is a link to a full list of your track preparation requirements. You can also see them listed on this web page.
