Total hours of program:  Upon successful completion of the training program participants will earn 64.5 hours of coach training.  In addition, participants will accumulate ten hours of mentor coaching.  Seven hours are delivered in a group format and three are delivered via individual sessions.

Allowable Absences:  The program allows up to a total of four absences. Click here for absentee policy details.




Does the program include mentor coaching?  Yes. Ten (10) hours of mentor coaching are included within this training program. Please note absentee policy for makeup of missed mentor coaching hours.

What happens if I miss more than four hours?  Participants will not be able to complete certification and would need to attend a future cohort for the necessary amount of time in the respective module.  However, observed coaching sessions cannot be made up, so participants must ensure that they have achieved the necessary five hours of observed coaching in order to receive certification.

Can I attend the live coaching via video conference?  Pre-approval for video conference attendance is required and only made available under specific circumstances.

Is this an ICF accredited program?  The accreditation is in process.  Anyone who has taken the previous course will receive ACSTH credit for the course upon approval.  If application to ICF is filed prior to ACSTH approval, the candidate would need to apply via the portfolio path.

Do I become credentialed with ICF by taking this program?  While the program certifies a coach through FranklinCovey, it does not credential the coach through ICF.  Upon completion of the LiMECTP, the participant is responsible for applying to ICF for the relevant credential.

How much does this Executive Coach Training Program cost?  The cost for this 64.5 hour training is $9200.

Is there a refund for the course?  There are only 15 slots available for each cohort which cannot be backfilled once a course begins.  As a result, refunds are pro-rated based on the date of cancellation.
