Of the 60 hours required, at least 48 of the hours must be:
Student contact hours. These are clock hours spent in synchronous (real-time) interactions between faculty and students. This may include time spent in direct instruction (voice-to-voice or in-person education), real-time discussions, observation of and feedback on practice coaching sessions, and mentoring students.
Coaching education developed and delivered based on the ICF Core Competencies (all 11 ICF Core Competencies must be covered).
Of the 60 hours required, no more than 12 of the hours may be:
Homework/independent study. These are clock hours spent outside of real-time interaction between faculty and students (asynchronous). These may include outside reading, writing, research, journaling, and various other activities that may occur outside of the synchronous setting.
All asynchronous hours must be part of the education program and require some method of validating that the activity was completed by the student.
