You must be over 21 years of age to apply to the Core Certified Sex Coach™ training program. Though, to be honest, it’s rare that we accept someone that young into the program, as it’s vital to have some life experience and maturity to draw on to become a Certified Sex Coach.
That said, we are looking for bright, energetic go-getters who are devoted to making the world a more sex-positive place through helping others achieve their optimal sexual wellness. There are no educational or employment prerequisites, though a history of doing something in the field of sexuality is a plus. This can be as simple as being the person everyone you know turns to for sex advice or as complex as being an MD who specializes in urology or gynecology — or anyone in between!
Ideal candidates for Sex Coach U have a background in therapeutic training, or experience in the pleasure products industry, adult entertainment, bodywork (sexological or other), sex education, life coaching, counselling, nursing, Tantra or other sacred sexuality modalities.
Career changers with prior college education and/or work or business experience are also ideal candidates. SCU is a complete training program, so it is entirely possible to transition from other, completely unrelated careers by achieving the knowledge and skills required to become a competent sex coach.
What you need, above all, is passion, dedication, self-discipline, motivation, and patience. You need a willingness to dive deep into your own psyche and work through and heal from your own sexual wounds. And you need to be open to new ideas and to the diversity of human sexual expression.
You will be challenged by this material, and you may even be triggered. You will need to have a reliable and effective support system in place and know how to self-soothe and regulate your emotional responses.
Finally, you need to be able to self-fund the tuition. If you do not have a consistent, reliable source of income that can cover your tuition payments AND your regular living expenses, then you are not a good candidate for the program at this time.
On the application, we’re specifically looking for people to fully answer our questions. One word and one line responses will not suffice. You need to show us who you are. Be authentic and demonstrate your enthusiasm. Answer our written questions thoroughly and from the heart in order to be seriously considered for enrollment.
