Logistics – When our classes are conducted
Each class is 2.5 hours in length.
The classes are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
You can choose the time slot that serves you best:
2 PM – 4:30 PM ET or
8 PM – 10:30 PM ET
With of our amazing telephone bridge system you can call in from a cell phone or dial in via skype.
So if you need to run out of your office just before class, or drive your children to soccer practice and jump into class from your cell phone in the car, you can do it. (as long as you are using a headset while driving! 😉
We offer 3 full semesters each year.
The program is designed so that you can complete the core curriculum in 3 semesters by taking 2 classes per week.
TOTAL Flexibility: You can, of course, take only one class per week and complete the curriculum in what ever time frame suits you best.
The three semesters take place:
from January -> March || from April -> June || from late September -> early December
We often offer a program or two in the summer from July -> August when we have demand for a certain program or a rush of new students in late spring. We will alert you about these summer session opportunities via e-mail.
We have four types of classes in our core curriculum
Methods classes, Skills classes, Business Academy classes, Coaching Practicum
They are organized as follows:
Tuesday- 12 Week Methods classes:
Wednesday – 6 Week Skills classes:
Followed by 6 week Business Academy classes:
The Coaching Practicum
Each is 5 hours in length – you coach a colleague and receive a score and written feedback from a certified instructor. You are also coached one session and observe 3 sessions. Each coaching + feedback takes about an hour.
They are conducted on Fridays and Saturdays.
Typically from 12 PM ET – 5 PM ET
In a typical month we will offer 1 Friday Practicum and 1 Saturday Practicum.
You must complete 6 Practicum in order to graduate.
You will need to be available for the full 5 hours and it is best to be well rested because it is VERY intense. Do NOT worry about being bored during the 5 hour practicum, it is often a life-changing experience.
A few notes:
The Methods and Skills classes and Practicum are required for graduation and certification.
The Business Academy classes are optional.
