    Will the live webinars be recorded and made available if we are unable to attend any of the scheduled times?

    • Kayla Pickrell says:

      Hi Sue – All live webinars will be recorded and available to watch at your convenience. You also have the opportunity to submit questions to the speakers ahead of time.

    Hello, I am in Brisbane, Australia and most of the live sessions at 1pm or 8am NY time only are at midnight or 4am. Two questions:
    1. are there alternative times for the live sessions?
    2. will all sessions be recorded so that I can ‘attend’ at more convenient times?

    If the answer for both of the above is negative, I would still like to register but I don’t think the price is fair. What discount can you offer given the barriers to coaches in the AsiaPac region?

    Thank you

      Hi Eva,

      There won’t be alternative times for the live sessions, but they will be recorded and available to watch at your convenience. You also have the opportunity to submit questions to the speakers ahead of time.

      • evasamaranch@gmail.com says:

        I understand. However, because the live sessions are not scheduled at appropriate business times the terms below are not equally fair to those of us in this region. I strongly recommend that ICF consider a more global approach to this course, and any other courses, in the future. It is common practice in global organizations to hold sessions at different times to provide the same quality of service to colleagues in all regions.

        Attendance at the live sessions will yield Continuing Coach Education Units (CCE Units) in the area of Resource Development. Attendees will be sent a certificate for every live session they attend in its entirety.
        Use of the recorded sessions is considered self-study for the purpose of renewing an ICF Credential. You may count up to 16 hours of self-study toward Resource Development for the renewal of your ICF Credential. Simply enter the name of the session in the self-study section of the credential application. You do not need to attach a certificate showing completion of a recorded session. For more information about ICF credential renewal, please visit http://www.coachfederation.org/credential.

          Is there any update on changing the CCEUs for those of us outside the timezones for the live webinars. I cannot watch a webinar at 3am but I want to earn CCEUs if I’m paying the full fee for this series. Please can we have some updated feedback on this. Thanks

            Hello Julia,

            All live sessions will be recorded, and the recordings will be available to attendees on the ICF Archived Learning platform within 48 hours after the live session. Whether you watch the session live or recorded, it will count as Resource Development.

            Best regards,

    How long will the recordings be available? Thank you!

      Hi Jennifer,
      The recordings will be available to attendees within the ICF Archived Learning platform indefinitely, that way you can view the recordings at your convenience and as many times as you’d like.

    The hours of some of the webinar/calls is not suitable for EMEA region.
    February 22nd- 8 pm NYC time
    March 1st- 4 pm NYC time

    will there be a recording of those- so that we can listen later?

    Please advise, I would like to join the BD Series if I ill be able to also follow those two sessions.

    thank you

    • Kayla Pickrell says:

      Hi Arzu,

      All live sessions will be available as recordings, that way no matter the time zone, you don’t have to worry about missing a session. On top of that, there will be a link provided to all attendees ahead of the series to submit questions to presenters to be answered during the session.

      Thank you,

  6. Patty Beard says:

    Are the CCE’s different if you listen to the sessions LIVE vs. recorded?

    • Kayla Pickrell says:

      Hi Patty,

      The CCE units are the same no matter if you listen to the session live or recorded.

      Thank you,
