This is a common question. Mainly because so many of us are used to there always being a linear path to follow. However, with ICA's training, the schedule has been designed to fit your lifestyle, and not the other way around. That means that you can take the classes in ANY order.
Downloadable Modules - available for download in any order
All modules are available to you in the learnsite as a downloadable pdf. We highly recommend you read the module before attending that same class. However, you might also like to download a read a module that you feel is relevant or has context to a class. So, for example: if Frameworks and Theories is scheduled in the time option that works for you best but you haven't yet attended 'What is Coaching' and feel you need context, then download the Frameworks module and the What is Coaching module and read both before attending class.
All modules are available as a download in your learnsite and although we recommend you read a module and then attend that class, you don't have to do it in that order. It might be that you don't feel comfortable attending a Frameworks the schedule dow So, in that time option you can complete every module. It might be that at the moment there are not many Foundation classes when looking across all time options, but there soon will be.
Teleclasses - scheduled by time option and attended in the order that works best for you
There are about 10 time options each week for your core competency classes, with each time option offering a complete set of modules. So, for example: the Monday 9pm class with Rob Stringer is currently running the power tool modules. Next it will run Frameworks and theories, coach skills, coaching presence and foundation. This means that if the 9pm option works for you then you can stick with it from beginning to end. Or, it might be that the Monday 9pm and the Saturday 8am work for you, meaning you can complete your modules across two time options (and so on). There is no defined beginning and end and for that reason the modules are not numbered.
Then we recommend you blend Mentor Coaching and your Labs into this. These again do not have a 'start point' but we do recommend you attend them alongside your Core Curriculum. Eg. Don't wait until you have finished your core curriculum to then start your mentor coaching.
- The schedule rotates, and you can take classes in any order
- The only classes you must register for in advance are Observed Coaching and Coach Supervision (if applicable). All other classes can just be joined as you see them on the schedule.
- You must keep a record of every class you attend (see Graduation Checklist)
- You must dial in on the hour and then stay the full hour
