Frequently Asked Questions

What technology is required in order to take classes from PCCI?

The technology requirements in order to take PCCI classes are very minimal. At the very least students need a telephone (either landline or cell phone), and access to a computer with Internet in order to access our Student Center, the hub where students can view and print all course documents, listen to required course audios, obtain bridge line information for classes, and access other essential resources. Alternatively, if a landline or cell phone is unavailable, students can utilize a Skype PAID account to call in, provided internet speeds meet Skype's requirements.

Why are core courses offered only by telephone rather than video?

We intentionally designed our most important and fundamental courses for audio training only for several reasons:  

  • Isolate a student’s sense of hearing to potentially strengthen and refine the ability to listen deeply.
  • Challenge students to become aware of and learn how to manage the myriad distractions that reduce the quality of listening.
  • Become aware of the fact that so much of listening has become an exercise of “tuning out” and learn what and how to tune in appropriately in a coaching context.
  • Increase stamina for listening only conversations since such a high percentage of communication occurs by the phone and in coaching 80-90% of coaching is by phone.

Do I have to attend classes live, or can I pace my learning?

All ICF-approved courses (ACSTH) must be delivered in a "live" format, requiring students to participate on a specific day/time by phone. This allows for rich interaction between our faculty and students. Courses generally range from 10-15 weeks in length. 

Is your program ICF approved?

All of our courses are pre-approved (ACSTH — Approved Coach Specific Training Hours) by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the highest standard of training in this profession.
