Professional CoachRICE

Virtual Program Format

This program is divided into four modules. Across all four modules, 39 hours of online instruction and 9 hours of independently scheduled work will take place along with 12 asynchronous hours for homework and exercises between classes. Modules are delivered through a combination of live online instruction, presentations, discussions, dyadic exercises, fishbowl and other interactive methods and independent studies. All required modules, including pre-class hours, are completed over a period of four months. Classes will take place virtually, and the session link will be provided to students upon registration.

Total Hours: 48 online classroom instruction + 12 asynchronous (self-study) = 60 coach-specific hours
