RADIANCE LEVEL TWO 130+ HOUR coach certification program

The ICF's Level 2 (formerly ACTP) 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.  Graduates of a Level 2 program may apply for an individual ICF Credential via the Level 2 credential application path, which greatly streamlines the application process.

Radiance is a Level 2 Accredited Coach Certification  Program and is structured to meet the ICF Level 2 Program requirements.  

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