The CPRC is a 40-hour training that takes place through live online group workshops, follow up calls, practical requirements and self-directed study.

Not at all. You can also coach groups that focus on using your coaching skills, as well as any other modalities you are trained in.

What can I do with my certification once I am qualified?

Following the completion of your training, we recommend that you strive to complete the certification process within six months.
