SIY Certified Teachers must pay a $500 yearly certification fee to SIYLI which gives you access to program updates, marketing materials and other teaching tools, and is required to remain active as an SIY Certified Teacher and listed on the SIYLI website. The annual fee is assessed in December of the relevant calendar year (so for example, the fee for calendar year 2023 will be invoiced in December, 2023).
The certification fee is waived if you taught a full 2-day SIY program pro-bono to a non-profit during the calendar year. In order to qualify, the program must be a full SIY program, so other offerings such as a half-day or Adaptive Resilience program will not serve to waive the fee. Once you have completed the program, please fill out the standard Program Information Sheet in order for your program to be recorded. The fee can only be waived for up to two teachers per program.
The fee will also be waived if you are a Certified Teacher that only teaches within the company in which you are employed (i.e. internal teachers) and the company pays SIYLI a licensing fee.
