The Radiance 70-Hour ACSTH (Accredited Coach-Specific Training Hours) Coach Training program is offered to meet ICF Requirements for the ACC Credential.  It includes 60 hours of training and the required 10 hours of mentoring.

This may be a good option for those who want to learn more about being a coach before committing to full training.

Although the class is designed to give the student the necessary training hours to apply for the ACC Credential (once the required coaching hours and number of clients has been attained), the training is at the PCC level.
