Thanks everyone,

I am speaking from the viewpoint of lay Buddhists who are willing to optimise their practice in Buddhism prior to ordaining where they make that decision from their own will but at the same time to develop their practice well enough during their life so they can confidently make the decision of taking up robes and minimise the probability of any thoughts of looking back and disrobing.
In Tibetan Buddhis, a small closed retreat might be of much help. Many centers in the US and Europe offer closed reatreats with tuition with teachers! Garchen Institue is one of these, https://garchen.net/personal-retreats/
