Accelerated Coach Training (Level 1)

Accelerated Coach Training (Level 1)


THE A.C.T. is an in-depth, 15 week course designed for people just like you who desire to use basic coaching skills in their everyday life. Learn how to unlock the dreams and potential in yourself and others.

A.C.T. uses a live virtual format. You will work with a trainer, a cohort peer, online resources and personal study with activation exercises. Trainees do not need to travel, you only need to have access to a computer with strong internet, a reliable phone, and a private space to attend the live classes. We also recommend a hands free headset for ease of calling during the sessions.
