Testimonial SF Coaching Masterclass 2020

Testimonial "And I just want to say thank you because this course has taken me to another dimension in my coaching and it has enabled me to go to the refinement of what I was looking for. And it is most worth the time and the experience you come out another coach."

This course builds on SF Coaching Fundamentals (or on any other 60 hour ICF accredited coach training that you have attended and that we can recognize) as a minimum prerequisite. “Coaching Fundamentals” and “Coaching Masterclass” together forms a fully ICF accredited ACTP program.

You will also receive a certificate as “Master Solution Focused Practitioner” from the International Alliance of Solution Focused Teaching Institutes once you have successfully completed this class and “Solution Focused Coaching in Organizations” (or any other IASTI  “Advanced Solution Focused Practitioner”) class and have coached clients for 100 hours.

If you need to miss a class, you can watch the recorded session. We expect you to miss less than 15% of the classes to be able to graduate. If you need to miss more, you can either join another class later (for free) or book individual mentoring hours (at an additional cost) to make up for the time.

The minimum number of participants is 6 (we can arrange for classes for specific groups if you would like), the maximum number is 12.

For graduates of a minimum of 125 hour coach training classes this course offers the additional 75 training hours necessary for the application to gain the credential of Master Certified Coach.

It is a highly practical, interactive and live online course (not a boring webinar) in which you will interact with people from all over the globe. For the part where we analyze participants’ coaching recording, each participant will have to supply a recording and a transcript of one of their coaching sessions at least once (preferably more often as this is where you receive the best feedback). There is also a requirement of 15 hours of self-study reading articles, watching coaching videos, producing your own coaching recordings, watching and reading transcripts of other participants’ coaching recordings over the period of the whole course.
