Training Schedules

Zúme is 20 hours of training. But those 20 hours can be broken up differently depending on your training group‘s availability.

10 Sessions

The original Zúme course format is 10 two hour sessions. Each session finishes with practical obedience steps and ways to share in-between sessions. This format is often run once a week for 10 weeks.

20 Sessions

For a longer slower pace course with more opportunity for gaining competence in the concepts and skills, the 20 session format has more practice opportunities for each of the concepts and tools.


Zúme can be compressed into 5 half day sections of 4 hours each. This can be done with a Friday evening (4 hours), and all day Saturday (8 hours) and all day Sunday (8 hours).

What is required?

Needed for the course:

  • At least 3 people, but ideally less than 12.
  • Commitment to spend 20 hours learning and practicing the concepts and tools in the course.
  • A person to facilitate (potentially you) the meeting time and location, to guide the follow-up discussion, and facilitate action prompts.

  • Special permission to lead a course is not needed! Zúme is self-facilitated, self-initiated, and you can start today.
