Brainfit® courses can be taken individually or as a series. Most people want to know more about memory and the brain for themselves, for family members or to enhance courses they are already coaching. If this is you, then you will probably focus on the first two classes. We love sharing our knowledge in this way.
If you are taking your interest further so that you can become a Brainfit® Coach, you'll need to complete a further class relating to the business of Brainfit® coaching.
Here are the classes:
1. Your Memory Matters: Know the Six Key Skills (6 Modules)
Each of the six modules covers the essentials you need to know about how the memory process works, the critical elements for success, what needs to happen to improve performance, strategies across the six key skills and practice exercises to increase productivity, memory confidence and how to avoid brain overload.

If you are already trained and working as a coach, teacher or other instructing occupation, you will find the first two classes essential for updating current courses you are offering. there are also ready-to-go presentations for purchase, once you have the brain and memory basics.
Each of the classes contains modules which you access online. There is video and transcript content with multi-choice questions after each module. You will need to answer these 100% accurately to move on to the next module. (We have done this so that you will be already practising an excellent memory technique - repetition!)
You can contact us with queries on the way through and we are always on the look-out for your comments and responses.
On completion of each major class, a certificate of completion will be emailed to you.
If you decide to offer Brainfit® classes yourself, you will need to devote time to annotating the presentation slides to help you with key points as you are leading your own classes. With The Business of Brainfit® Coaching you receive a range of marketing materials, digital resources and access to the private Forum for coaches. You are also invited to join the regular Zoom meetings with other Coaches where decisions are made and any issues arising can be discussed.
Once you purchase the courses and materials, you are free to use the resources. If you wish to maintain your support, updates and connection with the network of coaches, an annual membership fee of $450NZD applies. The benefits of this membership include:
