LIVE VS. SELF-DIRECTED VS. COMBO?
Our Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification is a combo course of self-directed and live mentoring case study practicum classes comprised of two tracks. In order to complete our Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification, completion of both tracks one and two are required. If you are only seeking continuing education or a strong foundation for adult sleep coaching using our Holistic approach and are not seeking a certification, then you would only complete track one.
Track One: Self-Directed, 19 modules with quizzes to complete after each module and an add-on option for bi-monthly online live group support calls. Upon successfully completing track one, you receive a certificate of completion for continuing education.
Track Two: Online live weekly group mentoring case study practicum classes. 10 sessions at 1.5 hours each session. Upon successful completion of track two, you receive our Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification.
Live: a date is selected among participants a few weeks before the start of classes. During this live interactive call you can ask questions as needed. Each class is recorded though so even if you miss it, you’ll still be able to listen to it at your convenience!
Self-Directed: all sessions are pre-recorded and you are given access to the new modules as you complete each one. You will email your instructor (included in track one price), or attend a weekly/monthly conference-call with the instructor (add on price option), to ask any questions you may have.
Course Deadline: Participants have one year to complete the course from the date of enrollment.
Certification Requirements: Participants must complete all course requirements which include completion of quizzes, case study assigments, final project and practicum work. More details of our course requirements can be found in our course terms and conditions upon enrollment.
The International Parenting Institute™ (IPHI), a leading health educational organization, becomes the first accredited organization to offer an online sleep program providing integrative tools and solutions for both adult and child sleep.
We are the first organization to introduce the first Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification in 2015 to the Adult Sleep Coach Professional industry training professionals and raising an incredible amount of awareness to vital subjects that, at the time, were not being considered or evaluated as part of adult sleep coach-client relationship. After IPHI launched their Pregnancy and Child Sleep Consultant program in 2012, Mar De Carlo, IPHI’s founder, recognized the need to offer and Adult Sleep Coach Program as she became aware that a holistic professional training program for adult sleep did not exist at the time and many adults just as much as children were in need of support to overcome their sleep challenges. As a result, our course was created and designed to prepare professionals to work with, address, and resolve a variety of adolescent and adult sleep issues ranging from insomnia to anxiety to chronic pain through an in-depth evaluation of health and lifestyle applying our Holistic Science of Sleep Method.
Besides the significant contributions Mar has made to the adult sleep coaching industry with her holistic science of sleep method approach, it is important to note that the content included in IPHI’s Integrative Adult Certification program is not made up by Mar on her own. While the Holistic Science of Sleep Method system and formulation are unique to Mar and IPHI, and while Mar has over two decades of extensive professional training and experience which includes over 25 certifications, she compiled a wealth of evidenced based research and science for the IPHI Integrative Adult Sleep Coach certification program that is not just based on theory but also practical application. During their learning journey, students of the IPHI Integrative Adult Sleep Coach program are guided and mentored through a variety of real-life case studies where they have an opportunity to apply and practice what they learn.
While our program introduces and includes a wealth of reliable and credible information from various industry experts and resources that tie to adult sleep, students learn about the professional world of coaching and how to excel at coaching and consulting. It is one thing to know sleep and it is another to be a successful coach/consultant and business owner. So apart from offering comprehensive evidence-based sleep education, our program also includes comprehensive evidence-based coaching education and business education. Because our founder, Mar also has a diverse professional background and experience, she is able to look at the adult sleep industry from different angles always allowing her to bring a new and fresh perspective to our program and students. This is what also gives IPHI an advantage in our curriculum development. Mar never stops learning. She consistently participates in new programs, collaborates and learns from experts, her faculty and continuously updates our program.
In 2019, Soda Kuczkowski, the founder of Start With Sleep and one of Mar’s first adult sleep coach graduates who has been working in the adult sleep medical and health industry for the last 16 years, joined the IPHI faculty team as the Integrative Adult Sleep Coach program’s lead instructor. Soda brings a wealth of experience and training highly beneficial to our program and students.
Participants are give access to our course Facebook group where they can interact, engage and ask questions with our students and graduates from around the world.

The IPHI Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification Program is currently available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, with a German version coming soon.
Ojai, California – December 30th, 2020 – The International Parenting & Health Institute™ (IPHI) & START WITH SLEEP have entered into a strategic partnership to provide a globally accredited certification program for sleep coaching. IPHI is the first educational organization to become globally accredited and to offer an online program that provides integrative tools and solutions for adult and child sleep.

The IPHI Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification Program is rooted in the philosophy of the “Holistic Science of Sleep Method” created by IPHI founder and author of “Awakening Through Sleep”, Mar De Carlo. With 25 years of experience and training in health, fitness and coaching, Mar is the first to pioneer a holistic integrative professional training program via IPHI for adult sleep that covers valuable topics you will not find in your average sleep studies. Her program provides graduates the tools to determine the most significant factors that are interfering with the body’s natural rhythms and encourages health and lifestyle choices that put the science of sleep into action.
The study of sleep health, while an emerging field has managed to elude many as there is both limited training in the healthcare field and lack of support to help individuals find the root cause of their sleep challenges. Many programs on the market try to generalize sleep solutions by collecting data that can often be misleading and does not provide the individualized support needed to address this growing concern that is so deeply connected to both managing and maintaining long term health.
The instructor leading the global training in the United States for the Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Certification Program is Sleep Health Educator and owner of START WITH SLEEP, Soda Kuczkowski. She brings 14 years of experience working in the field of clinical and behavioral sleep medicine education to help professionals understand the need for screening for sleep disorders and the insight into the impact environmental and lifestyle factors can have in creating them. Her business – START WITH SLEEP focuses on sleep health programming for hospitals, schools, and corporate wellness initiatives, as well as provides global consulting and coaching services.
She has experienced firsthand the lack of reliable resources available to the public to help them maneuver and manage their sleep challenges successfully and how difficult it can be when they cannot achieve it leading to compromised physical, mental, and emotional health. Soda also brings 22 years of industry experience in education, business development and marketing to help mentor and grow this emerging field of health.
