The purpose of this certification class is to develop a well trained community of Secrist Certified Teachers.  Beginners to reborning will have confidence in attending classes run by Certified Secrist Teachers knowing they are receiving the best and most accurate training possible.  A Secrist certification means that the teacher has achieved a level of excellence that qualifies them to be known as experts in the art of reborning skills and training.
What You Will Learn
In our teacher certification class you will learn the secret to setting up and running a high quality newborning class.  You will learn Secrist methods for helping the beginner make a beautiful baby of their own and how to avoid the many pitfalls of most beginners.  You will learn the best ways to use Secrist tools and supplies.  We will show you how to have fun and make good money teaching quality classes.
Required Qualifications
This class is not for beginners.  You must have made at least 12 reborn babies in the last 12 months in order to qualify for this class.  You must also submit photos of your most recent work to establish your experience.  You must bring to class one Secrist doll that you have most recently newborned.

The cost of this certification class is $495.00.  The Certification class includes a free link on the Secrist website and a free ad in the 2010 Secrist Tutorial Catalog ($500 Value!) AND a free CUSTOMIZED website for your new business (does not include monthly hosting fee of $39.95).  Your personal website will have all the same features and ease-of-use as the Secrist Doll Company website, only it'll have YOUR information so people can buy from you.  If you've been looking for some extra income and love reborning, this could be a perfect fit for you.  If you can use Microsoft Word, you can easily make changes to your website.
