WHAT IF I WANT TO PAY WEEKLY INSTEAD OF MONTHLY?
Weekly payment options are acceptable. Different options are not ruled out. Just ask.
ARE THERE REQUIRED BOOKS AND HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
There are up to 3 required books depending on the certification. Home Study Students are responsible for ordering their books. Once Home Study Students will receive their HTA Online Classroom’s sign-on information, they will be links directly to Amazon for each book. Students can expect to pay approximately $40 or less for the books together. Each book is also available in digital format which will be approximately $30. Note that you do not have to have your books to get started. Module 1 (Week 1) does not require your books. This allows you to get a jump on your assignments before receiving your books. Once you sign up for the course, you will be directed to a page with Registration Page and Payment Agreement Form to complete. Once we have received these completed forms, you will be sent a User Id and Password with 24 hours (usually less) to access the HTA Online Classroom. This Classroom houses all of the assignments, forms, audio, etc. and links to your books.
For the students enrolling in the tele-class, books will be sent before the class starts to the address provided on the registration form. On-site students will receive their books on the day of training.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO FINISH THIS PROGRAM?
The Home Study Program and Tele-classes were designed to be completed in 8 weeks. The On-site class is a 7 hour, all day class which usually is schedule for a Saturday.
AFTER TRAINING IS THERE AN ACTUAL CERTIFICATE THAT STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE?
Yes. Each graduate receives a certificate indicating that they have successfully completed a comprehensive Christian coaching program and that they are more than capable of coaching members of the Body of Christ as they seek to live a fulfilled and more abundant life. Each person who completes program will receive a HIScoach™ designation.
CAN I ENROLL IN THE SELF-STUDY PROGRAM AND LATER ENROLL IN ONE OF THE OTHER PROGRAMS?
Yes. All we ask is that you pay the difference between the two. For example, let’s say that you enroll in the Self-Study Program today and finish the program in 8 weeks and you decide you would prefer the comradary of a group via telephone. You would pay the difference between the Self-Study Program and the Tele-class.
WHAT IS THE ACCREDITATION FOR THE CLASSES?
First, we believe that the Holy Spirit is the highest accrediting source any one can have. Currently, the is no governing body for the coaching industry therefore an accreditation is not required. Some people seek affiliation with the non-Christian based ICF (International Coaching Federation) which is the most widely known PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION for the coaching industry.
Because the program has a Christ-centered, biblically based foundation, we believe seeking an accreditation of any type from a non-Christian organization would make us unequally yoked. This program is Spirit anointed and Christian. As followers of Christ, we choose not to submit or subject this learning platform to a secular accrediting body. We choose not to box or grieve the Spirit. We feel the Holy Spirit holds HIScoach Training Academy to a higher ethical code than any accrediting body, especially non-Christian or secular, can. Again, the coaching profession is not governed by any entities including any boards who claim to accredit coaching institutes.
We highly recommend all prospective students to pray and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit to get an answer as to whether this is the program He wants them to pursue. We also encourage individuals to make sure that getting a certification in this specialty is in alignment with God’s vison for them.
Those who complete the Spirit-led, Christian Coach (HIScoach) certification (specialized niche) will be able to operate their own Christian spiritual coaching practice. Most states do not regulate tasks related to coaching credentialing; however, we highly recommend you check with the state or country you reside in for a more definitive answer.
AFTER TAKING THE CLASSES AND BECOMING CERTIFIED WOULD I NEED TO TAKE OTHER CLASSES OR WOULD I BE READY TO START COACHING RIGHT AWAY?
You will not be required to complete another class and you will be able to hit the ground running once you have successfully completed the program.
DO I NEED ANY TYPE OF CREDENTIALS TO ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?
No, not at all. It is important that you are a follow of Christ.
