ICF ACTP (Accredited Coach Training Program) programs are considered “all inclusive”, as they offer start-to-finish coach training. A minimum of 125 student contact hours, Mentor Coaching and a performance evaluation process are included in the ACTP.  Graduates of an ACTP program may apply for an individual ICF Credential via the ACTP credential application path, which greatly streamlines the application process.

Radiance is an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program and our class is structured to meet the ICF ACTP requirements.

Part of what makes us unique is our all-inclusive program that starts with you experiencing the program as a client and ending it with being the coach for 3 paying clients, while being mentored.
