To The Journey Ahead

Gain Valuable Knowledge & Experience

College Feel

Although the core concept of sexuality related training programs are CEs, we pride ourselves on creating a very educational feel coupled with fun, culture and a safe environment to learn.

Online Education

We offer individual courses and programs that have both synchronous and asynchronous learning. Our quarterly institutes are the ultimate fusion of diving in learning and “playing hard”. Life is hard, school is a sacrifice. We have to make time to celebrate your achievements and goals.

Internships & Supervision

It’s one thing to learn the information. It’s another thing to be given the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned while being under the supervision of those who have already received the certification you’re working to attain and can help you on the journey to AASECT Certification. The goal is to leave NISHW with way more knowledge than you came in with and to actually KNOW what you’re doing!
