To assure that you are ready to submit your application for certification with the International Coach Federation, the program focuses on the required ICF Core Competencies needed to achieve your Associate Coach Certification.
A total of 80% of the course material will be on the ICF Core Competencies. This training will be synchronous, which is real-time live interactions between faculty and students. This may include time spent in direct instruction, real-time discussions, observation and feedback or practice. This amounts to two hours per week in class time. Asynchronous learning will be one hour a week and recorded in completed assignments.
A total of 20% of the course will be asynchronous and includes homework/independent study: Clock hours spent outside of real-time interaction between faculty and students. These may include outside reading, writing, research, journaling, practice coaching and various other activities that may occur outside of the synchronous setting. All asynchronous hours require some method of validating that the activity was completed by the student. This material will focus on Resource Development.
The ICF Core Competencies were developed to support greater understanding about the skills and approaches that are necessary within today’s coaching profession as defined by ICF. These competencies and the ICF definition of coaching were used as the foundation for the ICF Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA). The ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
Resource Development is training in skills that contribute to a coach’s professional development (e.g., personal development, coaching tools or assessments, business building, or other material that falls outside the ICF Core Competencies)
All sessions of the RCA program interactive content will be delivered virtually in English. The RCA coach training modules are designed to be engaging and highly interactive and are unmatched in effectiveness. Classes run for 12 weeks on Tuesday & Thursday evenings. Assignments for each module are done at your convenience.
