How long will it take to complete this course?
This program is a mix of self-study, live coaching zooms and organizing your own practice coaching. It could take anything from six months to two years, or longer.
Do you do payment plans?
Yes. There are up to 24-monthly interest-free payment plans available.
Do I need to know anything about coaching prior to starting?
No. Do book in a talk with one of the tutors in advance. You are also welcome to attend a sample class before signing up.
Can I make an income out of coaching?
Yes. Be prepared for this to take time. Since lockdown the number of coaches training has skyrocketed, so it is worth thinking about what will make your coaching practice unique. What skills and experiences make you stand out from the crowd? During the course you will be encouraged to build on your established skills, experiences and knowledge, to develop a practice that is bespoke to you.
Does this course expire?
No. Take as long as you need. And once you have received your certifications and credentials you are always welcome to pop into classes anytime.
Can I purchase this course as a gift?
Yes. Ensure the recipient is fully onboard, as sometimes gifted courses are not valued in the same way as those personally paid for.
Do you have any low-cost places for marginalized groups?
Radiant Coaches Academy follows pioneering practices for marginalized and intersectional communities. We have a queer coaches page and BIPOC coaching programs. Contact Dez@RadiantCoaches.com to discuss options.
Can I continue to work full-time and still complete this course?
Yes. There is no specific timeframe you are required to complete this course. The only caveat is that the Relationship Coaching zoom classes are all on Saturdays and Sundays 1-4pm EST (1800-2100 GMT). The Holistic Coaching zoom classes are every day and cover a range of times.
What is the age range?
18+ up to any age! Many of our students are between the ages of 20 to 60, but our oldest student is 78.
I am neurodivergent, what support can you offer me?
We welcome all abilities in our student cohorts. Speak to the course tutors in advance so they can make reasonable adjustments that suit your learning style.
I have children in the house, can they be in the background while I’m attending zooms?
ICF requires that you are on camera where possible. If you do not wish to put your camera on you are required to remain interactive via audio or the chat box. Please wear a headset as some topics discussed are of an adult nature. Where you are taking part in practice coaching sessions it may not be appropriate to carry these out in the presence of children due to background noise and adult topics.
Can I be driving or walking while listening to the classes?
ICF requires that you are on camera where possible, and for your device to be in a stable position (otherwise participants can feel seasick from the moving video!) If you do not wish to put your camera on you are required to remain interactive via audio or the chat box. Assess whether you can give full attention to the classes. The topics run twice a year so you have the opportunity to take missed classes in the future.
What proof do I get on completion?
All students receive two certificates (Relationship Coaching and Holistic Coaching). You will receive a Radiant Coaches Academy Graduate Badge for your website and social media platforms. In addition, you can study for your ACC or PCC credential and receive an ACC/PCC badge for display on your business platforms.
Does this course talk about Indigenous populations?
Many of Radiant Coaches Academy training retreats and online classes are Indigenous-led. But there are some models used such as Attachment Theory that center around the nuclear Eurocentric Family paradigm. Whilst both course tutors are active allies and are educated in diversity, equity and inclusion, Radiant Coaches Academy recognizes and acknowledges the limiting filters that our course materials align with. There is a course module on diversity + inclusion included in the program that covers areas relating to the BIPOC community. We are open to ongoing feedback regarding ways to develop the reach and relevance of this course. Please contact AliHendryCoaching@gmail.com with your suggestions.
What is your anti-racism policy?
What happens if I start the course and realize it is not for me?
No refunds are issued after access is given to our online course and live Zoom classes are provided. Contact Dez@RadiantCoaches.com with any questions.
I am non-binary, is this course for me?
Both course leaders are from the LGBT+ community and are supportive of all sexualities, genders and relationship iterations. Although gender binaries may be referenced in some parts of the course, the main focus of the training is geared towards exploring relationship qualities that include all genders, sexualities and relationship designs. There are also specific modules on sex, sexuality, diversity + inclusion.
What happens if I decide not to start a coaching practice?
This course has the ability to personally enhance your own relationships. Whether you decide to set up your own coaching business now or in the future or not at all, it will provide an invaluable resource to the way you live your life.
What are the cohort sizes?
The zoom group coaching classes are capped at 15 students.
What happens if I miss a class?
Each class topic is repeated at least twice per year.
Is there a pressure to finish the course within a certain time period?
This all depends on what pressure you wish to put on yourself! Students are encouraged to set up accountability buddies within the student cohort to help progress through the course at a speed that feels right for you. The course does not expire, you have lifelong access.
What additional support is available to me?
You can reach out to the course tutors at any time and they will respond within 48 hours. There is also a supportive Facebook Group, as well as community and connection through the Quest syllabus learning portal. You have access to all the Radiant Coaches Academy resources for life.
How would you describe the overall approach of this course?
Radiant Coaches Academy tutors share their diverse and extensive knowledge and experience, they are constantly assessing where the students are at and what areas of growth they want to achieve. If a student brings a particular stance or style that the tutors are not familiar with, they will endeavour to incorporate it into the syllabus. Learning should be a two-way process, and not a fixed entity. This is why the course is a combination of online syllabus and live coaching training, allowing for ongoing adaptations. The tutors are adept at travelling at the pace of the learners.
Can I have help setting up my new business?
Yes. There are practical tips and ongoing support around this. Radiant Coaches Academy is passionate about the coaching industry. We want you to run a successful gold standard coaching business and will help and support you on your journey. This includes advice on policies, procedures and practices for creating your business.
