Coach Education Program

Our goal is to develop high-quality, spiritually-aware coaches who are confident in their ability to make a positive impact on the world.

We Value Trust, Commitment, Clarity, Kindness, and Joyful Excellence and are dedicated to the good of the whole.

We are committed to continually improving our training, adapting to the changing needs of our clients and world.

Radiance Coach Education Leads to Quality Coaching

Radiance Coach Education is an ICF Accredited Education Program.  This means we have to pass a rigorous oversight process by ICF every 6 months in order to offer our program.  All our education uses the ICF Core Competencies as a base, ensuring our students have a firm understanding of the Competencies when they graduate.  

 

The ICF Core Competencies best practices are one pillar of our foundation.  Another pillar is our spiritual approach, working with our clients to uncover their life purpose, identify their top values and strengths, and create new habits of success that get them to the next level in their lives.  The third pillar of our foundation is Neuroscience, deepening our understanding of why coaching works.

Here are details on the structure of the different education programs offered by Radiant Coach Educators.

A minimum of 125 student contact hours, Mentor Coaching, and a performance evaluation process are included in the ACTP programs.  

 

Graduates of an ACTP program may apply for an individual ICF Credential via the ACTP credential application path, which greatly streamlines the application process.

What Makes Radiance Coach Education Program Unique

Joyful excellence is one of our values, and our program inspires confidence, proficiency and excellence in our students, as they are educated at a high-PCC level of coaching.​

The program supports the student in becoming a professional coach with 10+ hours of mentoring for the student’s first 3 clients as part of their certification.  These coaching hours can be applied towards their ICF Credential application.

 

A part of the program is for the student to experience the Radiance Coaching Program as a client, with the coach educator acting as both coach and teacher to help the student relate to what their future clients will be experiencing.

 

Students receive strong support in setting up their business, including developing their business mission and vision, target market, and business and marketing plans.

 

Our students start their coaching business while in the program, with the support and mentoring of their coach-educator.  This empowers them to confidently continue their coaching practice after graduation.

 

Our small-group format works for students who have a need for flexibility as they go through the program, therefore meetings are scheduled to meet their time demands, lifestyle and life balance.

 

A Life Thesis offers students the space and learning to work through obstacles to their well-being. 

 

Graduates have the option to continue their growth as a coach through joining the monthly Illuminations webinars, annual Radiance Retreats, and Radiance Community events.
