Professional CoachRICE

Virtual Program Format

This program is divided into four modules and a practicum experience. Modules are delivered through a combination of live online instruction, presentations, discussions, dyadic exercises 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.


All modules are delivered in Standard English (U.S.) and take into account EST and PST participants. The virtual cohort will take place from January 13, 2021, to April 14, 2021. This will include 3 hours of virtual instruction every Wednesday, excluding March 17, 2021, with self-study between sessions.

A 10-hour practicum experience will follow the modules from May 2021 - August 2021; students will coordinate with their assigned mentor coach for exact dates and times of training.
