What is Bertelsen Education?

Some highlights of the platform include:
  • Get access to an app, and take courses from any device, in or outside of wifi.
  • Although courses are self-paced, they are very interactive and have discussion boards. An instructor checks the board 3 times a week and respond to every comment or question.
  • There is also an option to take courses all together as a center. Instead of individual activities, we tailor the focus to groups and together, you will complete activities.
  • If you have at least 5 employees per center on the platform, your parents get unlimited access to our parenting package. This includes free sleep coaching, potty training, and newborn courses.
