This phase ensures that all applicants have a foundational understanding of the Bullet Journal method and a passion for teaching. The assessment will help us gauge your current knowledge and readiness for the program, while the application allows you to share your motivation and goals for becoming a certified instructor.

Phase 2: Training

Learn by doing

Over the course of 9 weeks, engage in live learning labs designed to immerse you in the core principles and practices of the Bullet Journal method. These interactive sessions will help explore the methodology deeply, learn additional marketing and teaching topics, and translate the practice to different contexts.

Our expert instructors will guide you through weekly assignments, practical exercises, group discussions, and mini teaching sessions to ensure you gain a deep and practical understanding of the system. It is critical to be present to put your skills to practice.

Annual Renewal

Continued growth and development

The Bullet Journal methodology and ways of teaching it are always evolving, alongside our company efforts to expand our tools, research, marketing, training and technology to serve the community. In order to maintain the highest standards and up to date education, it is important that Trainers maintain current knowledge of the methodology and offerings.

To support this on-going work, access to expanding resources, as well as ensure Trainers' investment in continued growth and learning, we require an annual renewal to maintain an active status after the first year.

Frequently Asked Questions

To be eligible you:

  • Need to have completed Writing for Being and received a Bullet Journal Certified Practitioner badge
  • Need to have read the Bullet Journal Method book
  • Are willing to use the core Bullet Journal method throughout the duration of the Program

The sessions will be 90 minutes on Fridays at 12:00 - 1:30pm Eastern Time from mid September to end of November. In the Practicum phase there will be support calls on a 1-2 month basis.

Since the program is designed as a learning lab, you are strongly encouraged to be in attendance. We will be doing mini teaching sessions so it is most beneficial if you are there to participate. If you anticipate missing more than 1-2 sessions, you might wait until next time to participate.

Replays will be available for you to revisit and if you have to miss a session.

We know this time will not work for every single time zone - it will be our experiment for the beta program and we will learn and adjust from there.

We don't yet have an exact time frame for the second cohort to be offered.

The training program will cost $3499 USD. This first beta cohort will be $2999. In exchange for the lower price, we are looking for patient applicants that will give us feedback on our newest curriculum as we go through.

Being a Bullet Journal Certified Trainer authorizes you to:

  • Teach a standard Introduction to Bullet Journal curriculum for 1-4 hours

More about official Bullet Journal education here.

It does NOT certify you to:

  • Offer an on-demand video course
  • Train others how to teach the Bullet Journal method
  • Use the method in a long-term coaching relationship

Please note that offering paid trainings or classes on the Bullet Journal method without certification is a trademark violation. To share the Bullet Journal practice, individuals interested in teaching Bullet Journal classes can apply for certification through our program.

We take no responsibility for any “Bullet Journal” courses, products, or services that have been purchased through unofficial channels. Our certified trainers, and programs on bulletjournal.com are the only vetted sources for teaching the method.

We are building on what you've learned from Writing for Being. However, it will not be a repeat of the Writing for Being experience.

The Writing for Being experience was about our personal application, journal prompts, self discovery, while Bujo for Trainers is much more about application and live practice. There will be much more live engagement with one another.

This experience is designed for those who are passionate about learning to share the Bullet Journal methodology through a standardized Introduction curriculum. We will explore the depths of the techniques and how we connect them to the needs of others.

Although we will discuss business topics like how to pitch the value of coaching, matching the curriculum to an audience, and so on, we will not be covering the basics of setting up a coaching or training business.

This program will be taught by Bullet Journal Certified Coaches Kerstin Schiemenz and Jessica Chung.

Each session is 90 minutes and will require an estimated 60-75 minutes of work to prepare and study outside of class. It is important to complete the work to stay on track and be prepared for teaching.

For this Beta experience, we only have the resources to support the program in English. We highly recommend that you have fluency in English to get the most out of the program. Our replays will be have captions that may provide a strong translation.

Every participant needs sufficient internet access that will allow them to join Zoom. A camera and microphone must be available, as there will be both discussions and group work. As we share personal stories, it is incredibly helpful to be able to connect faces to stories.

You'll also want to have a notebook and a pen to write with, of course! Although you might be a digital Bullet Journalist, we encourage you to engage in analog if that is available to you. This can be your current Bujo notebook.

In the programming world, releasing a beta version is the step before the final version. So this is the first iteration of the final course. We’ve spent a lot of time and energy creating this program, and want to test it with a live group to continue making it even better. The feedback from this group will be incredibly valuable. The program is priced accordingly.

We will require a minimum enrollment of 10 participants to run the program.

Yup!
