Why did I create our trainer program?

For the past 10 years, Vanessa and the Science of People team have designed, developed, built and produced a body language coaching and speaking program. The results have been incredible.

Our training reaches over 300,000 students, we have sold over a million dollars in courses and our groundbreaking work has been featured in CNN, NPR and INC and a host of other media outlets. My book Captivate was a national bestseller and was chosen by Apple as one of the most anticipated books of the year!

Why has this work been so powerful? 

We use science-based training methods to help people achieve their goals. Our coaching uses a blend of science and self-help to make our work both informative and transformative.

There’s only one problem. We need more experts teaching this incredible curriculum. We believe everyone should know how to leverage their nonverbal power using immediately applicable tools and strategies. It is our hope that we can meet you and you can find your ideal students. We want to help as many students as possible. I hope you will join us. 

Vanessa Signature


There is nothing better than waking up and knowing you are making a difference.

We might be a little biased, but we believe that working as a body language coach and speaker is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding careers out there because you are helping people achieve their goals. You have the power to inspire and inform people to take control of their lives and achieve their goals–that is a life and career worth living.

Trainer Love


As a trainer you design your own hours.

You choose the kind of work you want to do and the kinds of clients you want to work with. You can even work virtually or in person from wherever you are in the world. Many people choose to work as a body language trainer part-time or full-time and use it as an add-on to an existing career or chart a new career path. Some of our current trainers are intrapreneurs–teaching our body language curriculum to internal programs in their companies.

Corporate Trainers

Want to use your body language certification inside your company? Want to be an Intrapreneur? Wonderful! A number of trainers use company funds to cover their tuition. We love when you use the training to provide internal workshops for your company. Let us know if you want to pitch your company to sponsor you and we can send resources to help.

Motivated Contributors

We want big dreamers and big doers. We want you to LOVE what you do and be excited to get up in the morning. We will give you everything you need to be successful, but you have to be ready to implement and take action.


The certification is completely virtual through a private membership platform. Every week you get videos, templates, workbook challenges and the option to attend virtual office hours with Vanessa on video chat. We want to make sure that the program is available to people around the world. We get speaking requests from many other countries. Ideally, we would love a trainer in every major city.

Length + Timing

The program is 12 weeks long starting Spring 2019. But you do NOT need to complete the training in 12 weeks. You have as long as you need to complete the program. We work off of your pace and support you for your schedule and learning needs. 12 weeks is merely the fastest you could complete the program as we release modules each week.


Applications will open in Spring 2019. Be sure to sign-up below to receive your application and be the first to know when they launch.

* The first classes filled all available slots within the first few hours of the application being open! This time, we are trying to make it more fair for those people who want to spend a little more time on their application. For this class we will keep applications open for the full week to give everyone a chance.


Tuition for Body Language Trainer Certification is $6,000. Payment plans, invoices, and corporate invoicing are available.

Who Shouldn’t Be a Body Language Trainer?

This program is not for everyone. Being a Body Language Trainer is a very unique career path and we are looking specifically for individuals who:

Appreciate the Financial Investment

This program is based on Vanessa’s 10 years of research and over $875,000 of development. We charge a tuition, just like any other certification. We look for qualified students who understand what the program is worth. Remember: Our goal is for you to begin earning back your tuition the moment you graduate from the program and start seeing clients. We are also happy to offer a payment plan for those who need it.


This program is geared towards individuals who want to train body language part-time OR full-time–whether you are a professional who wants to add body language training into your career or you want to be a full time body language speaker and teacher.


Be sure you are signed-up to our Trainer List so we can send you all dates and updates for the next Trainer class starting in Spring 2019.


This is the ninth official Body Language Trainer class. We reserve a small number of seats for each class because we want to give each of you incredible one-on-one support. This means that once you are in the program you will get feedback, learning help and lessons customized to you and your business. If you do not make it into this class we will hold your application until the next opening.

Train the Trainer

We want to show you how we teach. There is a methodology behind Vanessa’s engaging teaching methods. During Part II of the Body Language training program we will dive into the best teaching methods, public speaking strategies and the psychology of top-notch teaching.
