Core Essentials is offered regularly in either our two 3-day intensive or, a 6-day intensive formats. In most cases, you can start taking courses the month following the month you register.
In both offerings, required individual course offerings are varied, supporting different time zones (we have students in over 50 countries). It is smart to plan ahead as if you sign up at least 45 days before start of your preferred program, you can save money with our 'early bird' pricing. Note as well, that registration closes two weeks before the live course orientation.
Core Essentials provides 78 hours of training, with the majority of those hours completed during the intensive 3-day x 2 events or the 6-day intensives. However, there are also pre- and post-coursework, plus additional completion requirements. Participants have up to 6 months to complete all requirements; Students also must accumulate at least 20 hours of coaching experience to complete this program. For those of you who like flow charts, here is one of the journey to completion.
That’s up to you. Some focus on getting their ICF Associate Certified Coach credential now that they have met the formal coach-specific training hours. Some continue onto Phase 2 - Professional Essentials of our Professional Coach Training Program to complete our full Accredited Coaching Training Program with the ICF. Others have what they need to starting coaching in their professional roles and/or to launch their own practice. And, others find that when they apply the skills and philosophies to their personal lives, they realize more satisfaction, meaning and contentment.
All the program materials are included in the price of your registration. They are all offered virtually and offer over 1000 pages of coaching tools, skills and resources.
