Classes meet in-person once a month for two- or three-day blocks, and instruction lasts from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
In addition to 12 full days of in-class instruction, learning is supplemented by weekly telephone conference calls, assigned readings, and journaling. Students begin to practice coaching after the second module, and record their coaching sessions to receive individual feedback from faculty members and accredited coaches to help them improve and further develop their coaching skills.
