Study Methods

Face to Face

Come to one of our four day courses and kick start your coaching skills. During the four days, we focus on learning all the coaching tools, frameworks and methods, with an emphasis on practice. At the end of the last day, you’ll feel confident and comfort]able in your coaching abilities. Because we only have small group sizes, you get unprecedented access to your facilitator during the course to answer your questions. They’ll also give you expert feedback and support to ensure you are coaching at your best. After the four days you have 6 months to complete your assessments. More information on assessment requirements is below.


Online study is perfect if you can’t get to one of our face to face coaching programs, or if you prefer the flexibility to study when you want to. You can start anytime you like and work through the program at your own pace, supported along the way by the expert team at Open Door Coaching. We have students studying with us online from all over the world, and you can too.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Typically competency is achieved by ‘physical’ performance or by providing evidence and documentation that reflects the previous achievement of that competency. If you have skills and experience that meet the competencies of the Diploma, recognition of this learning is also potentially possible.
