What Our Participants Are Saying
Beverly_Fuentes
Beverly Fuentes

"My favorite takeaways from the program were the overview of the coaching process and the tips and tools shared by the trainer. This is a good, comprehensive program for those who are coaches or learning to be coaches who don't have the time or money for a full coaching certificate from CTI."

RC
Robin Carrales

"This program provided me with all the necessary information to begin development of a coaching program within my own organization, and the interaction and information from fellow coaches was invaluable."

John_Moskowitz

"This program reinforced the positive, actionable, and future outcomes that are the goals of coaching. The dialogue tools were definitely worth learning and practicing—they gave me new insights into initiating productive conversations with peers and management while avoiding common pitfalls. I walked away with a very thorough understanding of coaching, and how to implement it effectively."

Things To Know

ATTENDANCE

For full-day face-to-face and live online programs, participation in all originally scheduled days of the program, including both face-to-face and live online formats, is mandatory in order to receive the certificate of completion and CEUs. Participants who miss more than two hours of the entire program will not be eligible to receive the certificate. Participants who fulfill the attendance requirement will receive a certificate at the end of the program.

For multi-week, live online programs with five or more sessions, one missed live session can be made up by listening to the session recording in full. Participants who miss more than one live session will not be eligible to receive the certificate. To be marked complete for that one session, please email [email protected]. For programs with four or fewer sessions, attendance at all live sessions is required to receive a certificate. All sessions will be recorded and available for participants to review throughout the program for your reference.

ATD requires active participation throughout the program to receive credit. Active participation in live online sessions includes, but is not limited to, participating in virtual classroom activities, discussions, breakout sessions, and intersession work. Please note that using a tablet or mobile device significantly limits your ability to fully and actively participate.

If you meet the eligibility requirements, a certificate will be issued to you through the ATD Learning Platform at the end of the program.
