This class is for people who are in the Animal Communication Academy Professional Training Program. It is designed for people who wish to practice animal communication professionally, either as professional animal communicators, or in combination with other animal-related modalities (training, grooming, veterinary medicine, bodywork, animal Reiki, energy healing, etc.) It is also open to animal communicators who have completed the requirements for application who want to deepen their skills and awareness for their own personal growth and development.

In this program, you’ll strengthen your telepathic communication abilities, and learn how to use them professionally to assist animals and their human companions. You’ll discover the ways you work best, explore how to structure your animal communication practice in a way that works for you and your clients, and sharpen your skills with practice cases, interactive discussion and exploration, and exercises and course materials that will assist you in developing a strong foundation as an animal communicator.

We’ll explore personal and spiritual development practices that cultivate the qualities of compassion and the inner strength which are required for  professional animal communication work. To be truly effective animal communicators, we need to have an ongoing commitment to our own personal journeys of growth, self-awareness, and presence. We can only hear, receive, and be present to in others that which we are willing to be aware of and present to in ourselves. By facing our vulnerabilities, tender places, shadow sides, and places of resistance, we cultivate the spiritual capacity to show up for our animal and human clients in ways that can facilitate deep understanding, transformation, and healing.

Successful completion of this program will lead to a Professional Animal Communication Certificate from Nancy Windheart Animal Communication Academy.


Certification in this program requires successful completion of all class requirements and prerequisites.

Certification through this program indicates that people have achieved and demonstrated a basic foundational competency in telepathic communication with animals, animal-human consultations, and professional ethics.

All animal communicators certified through this program must agree to adhere to the Code of Ethics for Interspecies Communicators by Penelope Smith, and the Ethical Agreements for Animal Communication Practice by Nancy Windheart.

What Past Graduates Have Shared…

  • Nancy's Professional Certification/Training Program is an in-depth program which encompasses the breadth and nuances which form the essentials for an animal communication practice. I found the use of digital tools along with the required practice, conversation and support to prove to be extremely effective. It was also great to feel part of a community, that our challenges are not unique, and to grow with the experience from others in the community.

    Among Nancy's gifts and skills are her ability to support individual students rather than simply prescribing solutions. It was great to be able to do the courses at my pace, emphasizing for myself the areas in which I was struggling the most, and learning tools which I continue to apply in my professional practice. I highly recommend Nancy as a teacher, mentor and facilitator. She is grounded, empathetic, walks the walk, and has a knack for adapting to support individuals on their unique journeys.

  • This course exceeded my expectations. The knowledge and experience I gained lifted me to a place of much greater confidence in my ability to move forward and make my own contribution in this field. Through participation in this program, I believe I have significantly developed my telepathic translation skills and consultation skills and have acquired valuable knowledge about how to manage an interspecies communication practice.

    The most important thing I am taking away from this class, however, came from the actual experience of just being with this instructor.  Nancy is fully present with her students in the same way she is present with her human and nonhuman clients. This actual experience of her presence and of the beautiful container she creates, helped me to expand my own ability to create the space with others, human and nonhuman, where real connection, deep understanding and healing can occur.

  • Nancy’s Professional Certification Program has definitely changed my life! I went into it with the intention to work professionally, but never imagined I would come out the other end ready to go into my own business right away.

    The program was the foundation I needed to be confident and experienced enough to go out on my own. I’m now working full-time as an animal communicator in my own business. It’s not hard to say that without Nancy’s guidance and loving support through her certification program, I would not be in the position I find myself in today.

    Thank you, Nancy, for offering your many years’ worth of learning and experience in such a thorough and well put together certification program.

  • I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study with Nancy and to have completed her Professional Certification/Training Program. I was looking for a program that would support me in developing my animal communication skills on a deep level.

    What I received from this program was that and more. Through Nancy's guidance, my skill and confidence in my ability to communicate with other species increased each step of the way. Equally important to me was Nancy's ability to help me understand how this work is woven into who I am and how I want to bring this work out into the world. This program provided me with practical information as well as activities to help with integration. This program also offered many opportunities for me to practice my communication skills and receive valuable feedback from Nancy.

    When I experienced blocks or challenges, Nancy supported me in understanding how to move through them. In the process of developing and deepening my interspecies communication skills, I also developed a deeper understanding of myself.

    Completing this program has brought me to a new beginning in my life as I step into bringing this work out into the world.
