Ethical Practice & Risk Management

Designed by our own Jory H. Fisher, JD, PCC, and Michael Marx, EdD, PCC. This course is required for our internal certification (CPLC – Certified Professional Life Coach) and is invaluable for guarding yourself against the greatest risks you face as a coach. A key component of our commitment to Raising the Standard.

Course Description

All coaches face risks. Those who face the greatest risks are those who are the least informed and educated. This class provides an understanding of ethics as defined by a variety of codes applicable to coaches, with primary emphasis on the ICF Code of Ethics.

Students will examine the key legal issues of which coaches should be aware and receive potentially career-saving information about liability risk management techniques. Case examples are used to demonstrate issues and facilitate discussion, and opportunity is provided to address specific questions on client issues you may be facing.

This course is required for our credential, the Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC).

Your instructors:

Jory Fisher, JD, PCC, practiced law for more than 20 years and is a founding faculty member and former Associate Dean of Liberty University School of Law.

Michael Marx, MBA, EdD, PCC, served on the ICF Global Ethics & Standards Committee and on the Ethics subcommittee for educating coaches on ethical practices.

Please note: This course is not a substitute for legal counsel and you will not be given legal advice by your instructors.
