We have developed our programs in a way that aligns with Professional Standards that are recognized by State, National or International governing bodies, so when we developed and launched our Certified Professional Recovery Coach (CPRC) program, we did so in accordance with ICF requirements. For that reason, our CPRC program is recognized by ICF as a Coaching ‘specialty’ and qualifies for 40 hours of approved training by ICF.
The primary reason that ICF recognizes the CPRC program is because this program includes 12-weeks of Live Skills practice which we provide to our students online via weekly Zoom meetings, and which are facilitated by an ICF Certified Coach. In addition to the 40 hours of approved training that students can receive after completing the CPRC program, they can also take an additional ‘optional’ 6-week Live Skills course that we offer based on the content of our Family Issues in Recovery Course. The Family Issues course is also included in the CPRC course; however, the Live Skills Sessions for that course are optional and must be purchased separately. After completing both the online and live portions of the Family Issues in Recovery course, our students will receive an additional 20 hours of ICF approved training.
All together, we are able to offer 60 hours of ICF approved training for Coaches based upon the content contained in our CPRC program.
