  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Registration and Information

    When does registration open?

    Registration is now open! Registration for the event will close on October 19, 2018 at 11:59 a.m. (New York)

    What if I am unable to attend a live session?

    Each live session will be recorded and made available to all attendees within 48 hours of the broadcast.

    How will I access the OnDemand sessions, live webinars, recordings and resources for the event?

    The week of October 15, 2018, ICF will send you details on how to access the sessions and materials through our web based virtual learning portal.  This will be the location where you access all content for the virtual event.  If you do not receive an email with the connection information by October 19, 2018 at 5 p.m. (New York), please contact Ashley Pak at Ashley.pak@coachfederation.org.

    How long will I have access to the session recordings and materials?

    You will have access to most of this content indefinitely through the web based virtual learning portal.  If a recording is only available for a certain period of time, the date will be noted specifically on the platform.

    Contents and Credits

    How many Continuing Coach Education Units will this event be worth?

    ICF Advance 2018 will offer 15.48 total CCE units (11.49 in Core Competencies and 3.99 in Resource Development).  Please visit the Session Descriptions page for more detailed information.

    How will I obtain credits for participating in the event?

    Your participation in each session will be tracked through the web based virtual learning portal that will host each session.  Each session may have unique learning checkpoints depending on your participation.  Details will be shared on the platform once it becomes available for attendees.

    Your credits will be recorded on your personalized transcript within the virtual learning portal.  This transcript will be your proof of attendance and completion when you submit your ICF Credential Renewal Application.  We will provide specific details on accessing this transcript during the virtual event.

    I cannot attend a scheduled live session. Can I still obtain CCE units if I watch the recording?

    Yes. Each session will include a learning checkpoint that you will complete to confirm that you viewed the video, this allows all recordings to retain the same CCE unit value as the live session. For example: If you cannot attend the live session, “Integration Conversation: Beyond Presence” on October 23, you can watch the recording of this session (the recording will be posted within 48 hours after the live session concludes) and still claim the same credit value of 0.5 Core Competencies/1 Resource Development. Please note that that you cannot claim credit for the same session twice. If you attend the live session and watch the recording, you can only claim credit for the session once.

    Where can I find more information about the sessions and presenters?
