Our Courses

We offer different courses to suit every lifestyle, ambition and learning style. Choose from two sleep consultant training programmes, both offering a globally recognised Open College Network (OCN) qualification.

Why should you become a sleep consultant?

If you’re looking to change your career, start working again after maternity leave or just want to find something that is more rewarding, fulfilling and lucrative, starting out as a sleep consultant is the way forwards.

Rewind 10 years, no-one had even heard of the term sleep consultant but today, the demand is huge, with lots of families using a sleep consultant within the first 3 years of their child’s life. And with over 2,000 births each day in the UK alone, that’s alot of work for us sleep consultants!

Becoming a sleep consultant will allow you the flexibility to spend more time doing the things you love, spend time with friends and family and decide when you work, how you work and who you work with.

Since becoming sleep consultants, we’ve never looked back!

We built our business from scratch in just 4 weeks – from idea generation to our first client and we’ve watched our students do it too. We know what works, what doesn’t work, and which business strategies can help you achieve the right size of business for you.

With over 10,000 hours of sleep support, and training and mentoring hundreds of new sleep consultants, we are industry leading sleep consultants and sleep consultant trainers, and we’re here to help you hit the ground running.

Unlike other sleep training academies – we are not a franchise.

In our Sleep & Business Start-Up Course, we teach and mentor you to build your own business. Firstly we equip you with the correct knowledge to confidently work with families as well as being on hand to answer client questions daily; this support is invaluable in the early days. We are also strong believers in setting up a solid business foundation and marketing plan to help you build and grow your business. The training in this area is comprehensive and we support you to implement a business that works for you.

    Our bespoke courses have been accredited by leading training provider, Open College Network (OCN). We chose to partner with the OCN because unlike CPD, the OCN is a regulated body and is considered the gold standard regulated training provider. Sleep consulting is not a regulated industry, so taking a course like ours that has been certified by a regulated body, holds far more weight within the industry.

    Hear what our students are saying

    Nothing gives us more joy than hearing from our students and watching their journey into life as sleep consultants. Take a look at some of the reviews we’ve had on our courses.


    I would encourage anyone thinking about it to enrol in the business start up course – what I’ve learnt has been invaluable. Dani and Chris give real practical advice and there is no way I could be up and running as quickly if it wasn’t for them.

    In addition, I feel so lucky to have met the other ladies on the course – they have all been so helpful and friendly and we’re all cheering each other on!
