A Sexology University certification program prerequisite is that you come to the program with a fully defined set of clinical skills, such as patient-oriented counseling or patient educational skills in a medical care arena, therapeutic or counseling skills, or other client-centered means for addressing the needs of your patient/client care spectrum.
Ideal candidates for Sexology U are: Licensed psychotherapists, MFT’s (Marriage and Family Therapists), counselors, social workers, medical professionals, public health professionals, or members of the clergy.

Sex Coach University
SCU takes you in depth with 12 sexology courses and 10 coaching courses, the live SAR (Sexual Attitude Reassessment and Restructuring) training, along with a Practicum Demonstration, in which you showcase your knowledge and skills in a live setting—all taught by the Pioneer of Sex Coaching, Dr. Patti Britton and based on her training manual, The Art of Sex Coaching.
The SCU program offers one specialty course as an elective from other instructors at Sexology U, all of whom are leading experts in their field.
SCU is designed to show you how to develop ongoing client assessments and write action plans for clients once you have mastered the knowledge you need to address over 46 sexual clinical concerns, while also healing your own sexual issues.
This vast base of knowledge is then integrated into the tool base of approaching your client work from a coaching-directed skills perspective.
Ideal candidates for Sex Coach U are: Counselors or Therapists who wish to gain coaching training and credentials, Sexological Bodyworkers, Tantra teachers and other sacred sexuality practitioners, Massage Therapists, Pleasure Products industry workers, Holistic Therapists, Bodyworkers, Surrogate Partners, Adult Industry Professionals, and anyone seeking a career change because they feel a calling for this profession.
Sex Coach U trains you in Applied Coaching methods based on the work of Dr. Patti Britton, as outlined in The Art of Sex Coaching. These are the methods that you will need to design and run your own private practice. Most candidates for SCU do not have a background of clinical skills training in how to create and maintain a safe space, ask pivotal questions, conduct thorough assessments or design effective strategies for the client to resolve and overcome a variety of specific sexual challenges.
Licensure and Certification as a Sexologist
Our co-founders, Dr. Patti Britton and Dr. Robert Dunlap, created the Sexology U and Sex Coach U programs in response to the terrifying lack of knowledge, competency and training of physical/mental health care and other helping professionals who work with their clients’ sexuality. We are dedicated to ensure that all training at SCU and SU is to the highest professional standard and showcases the latest sexological science available today.
Currently, there is no coherent global framework for licensure to be a Clinical Sexologist or Sexologist. The certifications from our programs have been used globally by our graduates as markers of advanced knowledge, skill, and professional readiness. We have students, graduates and faculty in 50 countries around the world, including Puerto Rico.
