Elective Courses

Life doesn't stay still. Each day brings new challenges and goals forcing us to keep learning or to wither. 

Fuller Seminary leadership professor J. Robert Clinton's researched why some Christian leaders finished well - meaning, they were godly and effective to the end. Lifelong learning was one of only 6 common factors. 

You and I need to keep learning, growing, and changing if we are to be effective and finish well.

Our coaching programs are helpful lifelong learning processes. They not only teach you new information and skills, you learn how to learn, and help others to learn.

Continue Your Learning, Elective Courses by Distance Learning 

We offer a number of Elective Courses on various topics to build on your coaching skills. Each is approved by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) in core competencies. 

Elective Courses are taught in live online courses which are group training sessions done through the Internet or a normal telephone, designed to help you learn without the expense of traveling to a workshop. Each class consists of interactive teaching, discussion, demonstration, and practice. Live Teleclass Courses earn ICF training credits. These courses are a great way to learn and interact from a distance.

Some courses have prerequisites. Use the chart below to find a course that interests you. Click on the title for more details and registration.

Upcoming Teleclass Courses

Build On Your Certificate Program, Get Your ICF Coach Credential

There are no dead-ends with our certificate programs. We have a lot of options for you!

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) approved each as part of our Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) in core competencies. When you take these courses you will earn ICF training hours. You can use these training hours for your ICF membership, coach credential, or credential renewal.

The chart below shows our certificate programs in green and how to continue your learning with Elective Courses. 

The Coaching Workshop Certificate Program is a 21-hour ICF-approved program. Continue your coaching training by taking Elective Courses for your own benefit or to complete the requirements for an ICF ACC credential. Later, add more Elective Courses or even take the Coaching Mastery Certificate Program to go all the way to a PCC.

The Coaching Mastery Certificate Program exceeds the training requirements for an ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential with that one program. After that, you can take Elective Courses to continue your learning all the way to a PCC.

Previously we offered the Core Coaching Skills Certificate Program, which was a 60 or 61 hours program, depending on when it was taken. If you took CORE, continue your coaching training by taking Elective Courses. Take Coaching Excellence (Mentor-Coaching) to complete the requirements for an ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential. After that, you can take Elective Courses to continue your learning all the way to an ICF PCC.

But I Trained With Another Organization...

Did you do some of your coaching training through another organization? No problem. You can take Elective Courses to build on your training. Find out from your previous training organization how many coach-specific training hours you've already taken. You may need to refer to the ICF's definition and rules for what constitutes a training hour. From there, join at the appropriate training level.
