Self-Paced Asynchronous Design (7 months)

Our Self-Paced Asynchronous program is ideal for coaches and other professionals who seek training or professional development, but need to take courses at their own pace and on their own schedule. This is not an International Coach Federation (ICF) program, but it follows the same curriculum used in our live training programs and includes live mentor coaching from our highly qualified team of faculty. Our self-paced program is a unique route to providing coaches and other professionals with the certification, mentoring, tools, and skills they need to develop a solid coaching business. For trainees seeking eventual credentials, the mentor coaching and twelve hours of this program are acceptable for transfer into a full ICF program.

The Asynchronous design is offered year-round at the students’ pace. Students register for the full program or for one course at a time. This program could be completed in 7 months if completed consecutively. There are no weekend or in-person meetings for this option. All courses are offered online in the sequence of the students’ choice.

  • Modules 1-3 are for students enrolling in the 66-hour self-paced program.
  • Modules 1-6 are for students enrolling in the 133-hour self-paced program.
