  1. Shifting the rhythms of the heart can lead to quick improvements in brain function and a reduction in feelings of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm. The HeartMath tools and techniques are specifically designed to change the heart’s rhythms, which in turn affects the information sent from the heart to the brain. Establishing a new baseline of coherent heart rhythms is crucial for sustained changes and improvements in our performance, health and emotional well-being. Without establishing a new baseline, it becomes impossible to achieve lasting transformation.

    When our systems are coherent and there’s alignment between the heart and brain, we tap into our deeper intuition and inner guidance. This newfound clarity allows us to make decisions with more ease, even in situations that initially appear complex. The coherence techniques and practices taught in this program calm the nervous system, neutralize stress reactions and create more balanced alignment between the heart, mind and emotions. It’s the lack of this that creates a high percent of our stress and all of the discord that results.

  2. Numerous research studies conducted in a wide range of diverse populations have shown that practicing the coherence techniques results in significant reductions in stress, depression, anxiety, anger, hostility, burnout, fatigue and increases in caring, contentment, gratitude, peacefulness, resilience and vitality.

    Additionally, statistically significant improvements in mental and emotional well-being have been demonstrated in over 14,000 people after 6-9 weeks of HeartMath training. As a HeartMath® Certified Trainer, you will have access to the normed and validated Personal and Organizational Quality Assessment (POQA-R) for use in your organization or with clients.

  3. The HeartMath Institute primarily certifies trainers who serve the general public, nonprofit organizations, schools, universities, social-service agencies, first responder organizations such as law enforcement, fire services, corrections, military, veteran and other government agencies.

    Those who get certified include:

    • Trainers
    • Consultants
    • Coaches
    • Managers
    • Practitioners
    • Directors
    • HR Personnel
    • Psychologists
    • Counselors/Social Workers
    • Peer Support Persons
    • Mentors
    • Educators
  4. The Coherence Advantage was originally developed for the U.S. Navy’s Expeditionary Combat Command to assist with their highly demanding missions. Since then, culturally appropriate versions of the coherence-building techniques have been successfully taught to over 100,000 First Responders and Service Members in various countries, including Canada, Colombia, Nepal, the Netherlands, North Macedonia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

    To ensure cultural appropriateness, there are three versions of the workshop materials available:

    1. General population: This version is suitable for individuals from various backgrounds, including nurses, teachers, government employees, and more.
    2. First Responders: Designed specifically for Police, Firefighters, EMTs, and 911 Call Center Staff.
    3. Active Duty Service Members: Tailored for allied military personnel.

    These adaptations cater to the unique needs and requirements of each group, allowing for effective implementation of the Coherence Advantage techniques.

  5. In response to many requests, we have made our certification program more affordable and accessible with an interest-free monthly payment plan. You can now spread your payments equally over four months. Our simple and non-binding certification course application makes the process straightforward. We want to assure you that your information is safe with us, and we won’t share it with anyone outside our organization.

  6. While the certification course is taught in English, presentation and workshop participant materials are all available in Spanish. In addition, we offer the Building Personal Resilience Mentor Certification in Spanish.

Coherence Advantage Trainer Certification is $3,995* Comprehensive and Transformative *4 equal monthly payments of $999

"I am very happy that I connected with the HeartMath family. It’s really been a blessing. I took the Resilience Advantage (Now Coherence Advantage) certification training and I have been able to use the tools I learned in the courses I teach. I have been helping a lot of people get connected to their heart. I’ve been doing it for most of my life, I just didn’t know how to train on it. Now I feel like I have all the tools I need to fulfill my mission, even in a greater way. Thank you HeartMath."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the world needs Two questions have led me here were: 1. Why do we feel the way we do? 2. How can we lead a positive and fulfilling life? I've had these questions since I was a boy. It's what drove me to pursue a degree in psychology and eventually led me to become a coach/therapist of psychological, physiological & energetic modalities. I've learnt much about why we experience what we do individually and how we affect each other across all types of relationships. But even with all this knowledge, I still could not find a sustainable way of living with purpose and fulfilment for myself and the people closest to me. I found myself in a state of apathy. And then I discovered HeartMath. And through the Coherence Advantage program (previously known as Resilience Advantage), I discovered the science and energetic abilities of our heart. And along with research based techniques, I now know that we have simply not been taught how to use our hearts to be more resilient, to find meaning & fulfilment, and how to tap into our intuition. To contextualise what I've learnt, it's also showed me why so many of us today experience so much suffering, because we have been disconnected literally from our hearts, and instead have been connecting to the suffering of others who are equally unaware of their hearts. If you're reading this now, it is most likely that you have been searching for answers yourself, and perhaps also seek to help others. If this is you, this just might be what you need.
