A time like no other
These are challenging times. Coaches, as small businesses and deeply interpersonal practitioners, are being challenged like at no time in memory. At Mentor Agility, we have heard from many of our coaching clients that they are struggling to focus on their practice through it all, much less enhancing their knowledge while generating relevant CEU’s. Your resilience is inspiring, so we asked some of our partners to create a series of talks on how coaches and their clients can better cope with the challenges of Covid 19. These webinars will be roughly an hour in length and will be available for $5 each, which helps us cover the webinar, logistic, and CEU fees.
Virtual online webinar classes: All classes will be worth 1 CEU*. Max webinar size is 50.
Notice on Continuing Education Credits –
In Wyoming, coaching CEU’s are recognized as continuing education for the Wyoming Mental Health Professions Licensing Board as long as they are within your scope of practice.
All classes are NBC-HWC approved for CEU credit.
These webinars have been submitted to ICF for CEU credit, which will be awarded retroactively.
