Coach Education with a Difference

Our Training is more than just a series of Zoom classes.

We are not new to online education. We began that way; back in 2001 when it was almost unheard of we knew that our students wanted flexible, self paced learning that retained quality and academic rigour. And we also new that learning is a social activity. Consequently peer based learning is central to all our programs.
