You've got questions. Here are the answers.
Will this training count toward an International Coach Federation credential?
Yes. Integrated Coach Training is an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) and can be used to earn or renew an ICF credential. You can even get your performance evaluation done by the CoachNet team to accelerate the process!
Who will teach this course?
CoachNet's Training Team carry International Coach Federation credentials and work as professional coaches. These skilled practitioners masterfully present core content and support it from their experience. The team engages in continued development under the direction of Master Certified Coach Jonathan Reitz, CoachNet's Director of Training. You can Meet the Team here.
Where is the training?
Integrated Coach Training is available online, so there are no travel or accommodation expenses. You can develop your coaching skills anywhere you want to work! We use a tool called Zoom Meeting for our training which works in your browser. You have the option of downloading a Zoom app to your computer, tablet or smartphone, but you make that choice.
What happens during online training?
Some courses have pre-work. The live sessions are interactive, so you'll want to make sure you can use your device's microphone and camera. (We only use cameras occasionally.)
You can expect to engage in dialogue, learn the competencies of a qualified coach, and interact in small groups of three (triads) to practice coaching.
How long will each online session be?
Integrated Coach Training courses are either one hour or two hours per session, depending on which course you're taking. We recommend that you don't commit to more than two courses at a time.
My calendar is a problem. Do I have to come to all eight sessions?
You are responsible for attending the entire event, but you can miss 25% of the live sessions for each class (either one or two, depending on the class) as long as you watch the recording before the next session.
Do I have to read Jonathan Reitz's book, Coaching Hacks?
We suggest it. But if you want to be an outstanding coach, you will! :) Learn all about the book here.
Who will be my mentor coach?
If you choose a training block that includes mentor coaching, you'll join a group mentor relationship conducted by one of the CoachNet Training Team. All CoachNet mentor coaches carry at least the Professional Certified Coach credential from the ICF.
Are there payment plans available?
Yes. In the checkout process, you can select a three-payment option. Contact CoachNet (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
What if I hate it?
No worries. CoachNet offers a money-back guarantee for untaken training if you opt-out for any reason.
Does this mean I'm a certified coach?
That's a loaded question. "Certified coach" is a loaded term, for a lot of reasons. CoachNet prefers the term "trained coach" or "credentialed coach" if you earn an ICF designation.
