7. Prerequisites
There are no prerequisites. This class is open to all.

8. Coach Certification
This class provides eight hours toward MentorCoach Certification for students meeting the class attendance requirement (See #10 below.) It can also provide eight hours toward ICF Certification via an Accredited Coach Training Program such as MentorCoach or via the ICF Portfolio Approach.

9. ICF Coach Continuing Education

This class is approved for twelve hours of CCEUs (ICF Core Competencies) from the International Coach Federation for students meeting the class attendance requirement (See #10 below.) There is no fee for ICF CCEUs.

10. CEs

This class is also approved for eight hours of CEs (continuing education units) for social workers (NASW) and licensed counselors (NBCC). The CE administration fee is $75.

To receive credit for CEs, students must pay the CE fee and be present for seven of the eight classes. (See #11, Attendance Requirements)

Note: The CE fee is $75 and applies only if you are a licensed mental health professional in the US and need CEs from one of the organizations listed above (NASW, NBCC, etc.) Otherwise, when you register, indicate that you do not need to pay the CE fee by choosing the "Base Unit Price with NO CE's" registration option.

11. Attendance Requirements

Every class is recorded. Some students may listen to some or all of the classes by recording at their leisure. We applaud and support this practice. We know one well-known Australian professor who used to end his week listening to the recordings of Chris Peterson's lectures on Friday evenings, drinking white wine and reclining in his hot tub.

To receive credit for CEs, ICF CCEUs, credit toward MentorCoach Certification, or to receive a Certificate of Completion, students must be present for 6.5 of the 8 classes.

Listening to the class by recording does not count toward the attendance requirement for receiving CEs, credit toward MentorCoach Certification, ICF CCEUs, or to receive a Class Certificate of Completion.

12. Refund Policy

You may withdraw your registration at any time before the beginning of the second one hour class and receive a full refund. Students are responsible for the full tuition amount if they do not withdraw before the beginning of the second class.
