FAQs

What is the Early Certification Program?

The Early Certification Program allows coaches to become certified in our program even though the course content is not currently accredited with ICF. In short, we are self-certifying you to represent our program with the goal of working toward the ICF requirements for program accreditation in the future. Timing for this process is not yet determined. 

Early certification is for coaches who are early adopters, like to be at the forefront of new opportunities, and help shape the direction of our program from the ground up.

Does this program qualify for ICF Continuing Coach Education (CCE) credit?

Not at the moment. Our training is offered 100% on-demand via online (asynchronous learning). ICF does not currently credential programs that are offered entirely online. However, as demand increases for our program, we do plan to create blended and synchronous learning options that would allow us to apply to have the training hours credentialed as CCU credits.

Is this program an ICF-accredited coach training program?

No. We do plan to seek accreditation for this program in the future via the ICF Approved Coaching Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) program. A minimum of 30 student contact hours are required for ACSTH program accreditation. 

This is our ultimate goal--to develop a comprehensive training program for coaches that specializes in values-based development. Our ability to move forward with any ICF  accreditation requirements largely depends on the interest and traction we get from coaches who are interested in this work.

Will this be an "all-inclusive" or "a la carte" coach program?

This program will be "a la carte," meaning it's for coaches who have already received their core coach training and understand the fundamentals of coaching, but are seeking to grow their coaching skills in values-based development.

If you have never coached before, we recommend you start with an "all-inclusive" program first.

Why are you starting with 100 coaches?

The first 100 coaches will be our founding coaches. They will help shape the long-term vision, development, and rollout of our program. We believe this approach will help ensure high standards and the best quality for values-based development.

These coaches will also be instrumental in helping us optimize our curriculum prior to pursuing any ICF accreditation.

Once we reach 100 coaches, enrollments will temporarily go to a waitlist. More coaches will eventually be added to the program, but we first want to evaluate what is the right model and approach for our coach community.

As a coach, what type of discounts will I receive on products?

Certified Values Coaches receive 50% off the personal values assessment and 30% off the English edition of The Values Deck. We are currently working on launching The Values Deck in multiple languages. Discounted pricing will be determined at a later date on those editions.
