It seeks to provide maximum value for students’ time and resources and to support the graduate in either starting or growing his or her coaching practice. Graduates will complete a six-month Coaching Certification Training Program that educates and guides trainees to excellence in coaching skills according to standards established by the International Coaching Federation. It also provides a holistic perspective in coaching to support both new and existing coaches to take their coaching to the next level.
