Level II provides a review of introductory NILD Educational Therapy® techniques and introduces a series of techniques for advanced students to include mediated learning and questioning skills.

Regent University Syllabus

Southeastern University Syllabus available March 17

  • Consists of four weeks of online work followed by one week of classroom instruction (residency). Note that the online portion of the course is hosted by either Regent University or Southeastern University (SEU). Even though these courses are hosted on Regent and SEU online platforms you do not need to enroll in these universities. However, both universities offer a graduate credit option for NILD Levels I, II and III courses and Master’s Degree Programs in NILD Educational Therapy that do require a separate enrollment process (click the link for more information).
    • Through NILD’s range of courses and workshops you can obtain continuing education credits as you seek to meet the needs of your students. Additionally, NILD Level I, II and III courses can put you on track for becoming a Professionally Certified NILD Educational Therapist (PCET)! Click here for steps to certification.
    • Click on the below buttons to access the course syllabus. If your course is hosted by SEU then use the SEU version of the syllabus. Please read the syllabus carefully as there are required textbooks and materials that must be purchased through NILD and others that are only available from third parties.
    • Daily schedule for residency (classroom instruction) week for all NILD Level II courses held in the United States is 8am – 5pm Monday through Thursday and 8am – 12pm on Friday. Please note that the online and residency components for each course location can not be separated and matched with online or residency components of other locations.
