Here are some Frequently Asked Questions and the answers:

 #1) Once I complete the training session, and I am certified to teach
 the curriculum, would I then operate as an independent Eight Habits educator?
The licensing agreement means you can teach the program only in your own specific
organization unless an exception is made. You may also be granted permission to teach
to not-for-profit organizations. However, you must always purchase participant materials
when teaching the program inside your own organization or to non-profits.
#2) Would Franklin Covey also assist with marketing?
 No, you would be responsible for marketing your own programs
#3) At what point will I obtain a licensing agreement?
You will obtain a license agreement at the end of the Institute Training.

#4) Does the certification cover all states or just the state I'm in?
The license agreement allows you to operate inside your organization, it is organizatin-based,
not state-based.

At the following link scroll down to the bottom of the page to read a downloadable brief excerpt from a Special Report: The 7 Habits of Successful Families in Florida, a government-commissioned study on the impressive effectiveness of the 7 Habits in improving families.  As this Jacksonville website says, " So impressive is the work of the Jacksonville program that it should and will serve as a model for community leaders worldwide."

I encourage anyone interested in attending The 8 Habits of a Successful Marriage training and certification institute, or The 7 Habits of Successful Families workshop at the July Smart Marriages conference to read the report - the curricula were developed with the same engaging and successful methodology, and are based on Stephen Covey’s best-selling works The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families, and The 8th Habit. 

You can read the entire study (138 pages) if  interested - just check the URL for the full study on the first page of the abridged report.

This institute is part of the week-long Smart Marriages conference.
