Homework varies but we recommend that you set aside two to three hours per week outside of class time during the training.

All our classes are recorded and uploaded to your online learning site within 48 hours. You must attend a minimum number of observed coaching and mentoring sessions to qualify for certification. However, that does not mean that missing a few classes is problematic. 

You are not required to purchase anything else during the training or for your WMCT certification process. Please note that there are fees charged by the ICF if you choose to certify through them. Details can be found on the ICF website.

Yes. We offer an installment plan with eight easy payments. In order to enroll and secure a spot in our training, we require a down payment. The additional seven installments will be automatically charged to your credit card approximately every 30 days.

Yes, we do offer awards ranging from 50% to 80% off the full tuition price of the Wayfinder Master Coach Training program. Additional information to apply for an award will be posted here when it is available or email us at MCT@marthabeck.com for more information.

All Wayfinder Master Coach Training participants may request a refund until the refund window closes on TBD.

To request a refund, email MCT@marthabeck.com. We will refund whatever you have paid, less a $1,295 USD service fee. The service fee will not be applied to any future training or events. We will not offer refunds after the refund window closes.

You will be provided a copy of and asked to read Martha’s new book, The Way of Integrity.

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the most globally-recognized independent credentialing program for coach practitioners. It also accredits programs that deliver coach-specific training.

While Wayfinder Master Coach Training is not currently ICF-accredited, we will be working with the ICF to become an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) beginning with the Spring 2021 training. We fully anticipate our program will complete the review process and be accredited at the ACTP level in 2022.

What does this mean for you? Anyone who enrolls in our Sprin 2021 training (or any subsequent training) will have the coach training and mentoring hours that they need to apply for certification by the ICF, either at the Associated Certified Coach (ACC) level or the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level once the program has been accredited. 

Professionals with coaching skills are increasingly sought after in the business and non-profit sectors. Becoming an ICF accredited coach can open up opportunities in areas like leadership development, executive coaching, and professional development, and team-building. In some sectors, your ICF credential can be a requirement for hiring, similar to how a CPA (certified public accountant) is treated in an accounting firm.

The quality of our Wayfinder program is as high as it has ever been. But in attaining ICF accreditation we are able to demonstrate the world-class standard of this training.

Unfortunately not. Completing the training and becoming a certified Wayfinder Master Coach means you will have the coach training and the mentoring hours you need to successfully apply for certification by the ICF at the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) or Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level. Your instructors and mentors will give you advice on this during the training. To learn more about ICF certification, email us at MCT@marthabeck.com or visit the ICF website.

No. We will give you everything you need during the training. This includes feedback on your observed coaching sessions, seven group mentoring sessions, and three individual coach mentoring sessions with a Master Coach Instructor.
