Proven Results + Cost Effectiveness = Awesomeness

 

Leadership conferences, off-site workshops and extended education programs can be costly and time consuming. Travel expenses, hotels, high tuition fees and loss of productivity can put a strain on any organization. We think there's a better way! Just pop in the Rescue Academy videos, hand out the workbooks and you're ready to go. Do it on your time, at your location and within your budget!

FAQ

 
 

WHO IS THE INSTRUCTOR?
Mike Foster is the creator and your instructor for the Rescue Academy training videos. With over 15 years of counseling experience, Mike blends well-researched, actionable strategies and insights to provide compassionate care and coaching. 

 

HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?

The course consists of 7 videos, each about 20 minutes in length. If you choose to do as a group each session can last 45-60 minutes in length due to optional discussions and other interactive elements that are included. Take your team through it in one day, two days, or over a longer period of time. The schedule and the experience are customizable to what works best for you.

 

DOES MY ENTIRE TEAM HAVE TO DO RESCUE ACADEMY TOGETHER?

No! You can if you want to, but we've designed the course to be flexible so that teams can either do it together or individually at their own pace.  

 

HOW DOES THE LICENSING WORK?

A usage license is required for each person taking the course. For example, if you have 10 volunteers taking the course, you will need 10 licenses. If you have 25 people attending the course you will need 25 licenses. A Rescue Academy workbook is included with each license and a certificate of completion. And don't worry, we have a very simple process for purchasing additional licenses and workbooks if you need them. Contact Scott@SecondChance.org. 

 

HOW IS RESCUE ACADEMY DIFFERENT THEN YOUR LIVE WORKSHOP IN SAN DIEGO?

Rescue Academy touches on many of the ideas, concepts and tools that are taught in our LIVE workshop. The main difference is that we have eliminated the need to come to San Diego in order to get the training. The 20-minute video teachings set you up to facilitate the conversations with your team and you can do it at your own pace and structure. 

 

WHAT'S INSIDE THE WORKBOOK?

The beautifully designed, 120-page workbook contains short readings, discussion questions and real-life scenarios for your team to discuss. It also contains fill-in-the blank outlines for Mike's teaching sessions.

 

CAN I WATCH A SAMPLE? 

Absolutely. We have included some samples on this page from Session 2: "I Am A Shamebreaker." Click here.

 

WHAT IF I DON'T NEED THE ENTIRE PACK? OR WHAT IF I NEED MORE? 

Rescue Academy comes in 10 and 25-pack bundles.  If you want to train more than 25 people we offer additional bulk pricing and discounts. Contact: Scott@SecondChance.org

 

IS THE TRAINING FAITH BASED?

Yes. Mike blends best-practices from both faith and academic research to create a simple, yet profound experience. However, it is not a Bible study course or small group study. This is a team development and training product. 

 

DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?

Yes. If for some reason you are not completely satisfied with the course, simply send back your unused 10-pack or 25-pack bundle and we will refund your money. However, we're highly confident you will love it and find great value in the course.
