Why in-person training?
Yes, it’s more convenient and affordable to stay home and join us virtually. But, when it comes to making a positive change in your life, sometimes you just have to give yourself what you really need:
- Time to reflect. Treat yourself to quality “you time” free of distractions as you work towards your goals and future career.
- Inspiration. Build life-long professional relationships with people devoted to working and advancing their personal and professional status.

You work hard, now it’s time for you to give yourself the space and environment you need to create the changes you most desire.
“The lessons and connections I made during my in-person experiences have fully permeated my being. Whether that is due to the physical energetic space shared with like-minded souls, the conversations with peers on breaks, or some gentle extra-curricular time spent with each other after class I don’t know, but I created profound relationships with people and the internal connections I made were life changing. Additionally, during the breaks, before and after, we were able to get to know Feroshia better and soak up a little extra of her warmth, inclusion and brilliance.”

The beauty of [this in-person training] is that it attracts generous, open, encouraging people who are not settling for a predictable life path. They are sincerely inspiring to be around. (And there’s a lot of side laughter!) I enjoy that energy and find it harder to access virtually. I tend to feel a little clunky and not quite fully myself when trying to integrate into a group via my computer screen
What You’ll Learn
Fast track your coach training experience…
Insight: Whole Person Coaching® Starter Kit
(10 module digital starter course*)
INSIGHT is an on-demand, 10-module digital coach training that gives you the tools and skills you need to start coaching others. This training includes sample coaching sessions and our customizable “Coaching Starter Toolkit,” getting you up and running immediately.
With this course, you will:
- Add a rich suite of resources into your coaching toolkit with the essentials, including: coaching contracts, coaching plans, values cards and archetype self-assessments and more are included.
- Be able to identify your client’s unique learning and informational processing styles, and sculpt your coaching process accordingly.
- Use our FootSteps coaching intervention to generate positive momentum and sustainable change with your ideal audience.
- Clearly articulate the value and benefits you offer your prospective clients so you spend less time selling yourself, and more time helping others.
- Customize your coaching toolkit, tailoring it to your unique offerings and personality.
The key to change mastery lies in a strong foundation from which to elicit change. The Self-Discovery Process is essential to both coach- and client-success. Your clients will become confident in you as their guide. More importantly, you’ll be well equipped to serve them at your best by knowing: who they are, what truly matters most to them, and how to elicit their very best. It’s worth noting that many people begin charging for their services at this point and start earning back their initial training investment. *This course is a prerequisite for the 5-Day Fast Track Core: Certification program. It is distributed to students upon enrollment and required prior to attending the week training.
Impact: Revolutionary Relationships
Relationships are everything. The relationship you hold with yourself, others and the world as a whole shape the way in which you see, feel, hear and behave in the world. Impact is about being your best self in service to others and cultivating high-levels of self-trust in others.
With this course, you will:
- Tap into Relational Neurobiology, Interpersonal Mindfulness and Adult Attachment Theory to understand the effects of relationships on brain development, decision-making and habits and how to best to effect change.
- Understand how to create and nurture an empowering partnership, one rich in trust and authentic connection, with those you serve.
- Discover the five-core relationship building skills of attending, believing, confidentiality, reflecting and empathy to support your clients to overcome their own self-doubt and fear.
- Move beyond emotional triggers and remain present and highly effective working with others regardless of what arises during the session.
- Explore the 4 ways of “knowing” and learn how to tap into the multiple intelligences of the whole person.
Change is hard. Changing others can be even more challenging. Without the proper levels of trust and rapport and the capacity to work with the whole person, that’s usually how it ends up. This course is designed specifically to help you maximize the impact you make on the lives of others through the power of your presence and an empowering relationship you co-create with others. Most participants have shared that the learning and tools they take away from IMPACT have single-handedly transformed their personal and professional relationships. This training has made it possible for them to be ‘openly authentic’ as well as ‘heard, seen and trusted by others’. PREREQUISITE: INSIGHT: Whole Person Coaching Starter Kit ICF/BCC CREDITS: 24
Ignite: Catalytic Communication
Catalytic Communication is the core engine that you’ll use to produce game changing and often life-changing conversations that catapult your client’s capacity to achieve their dreams. It’s a unique form of invitational communication that employs powerful questions and reflective techniques that engage the whole person.
With this course, you will:
- Employ techniques based in Motivational Interviewing, NLP, Positive and Somatic Psychology to generate positive momentum in others working with the whole person.
- Become responsive in the moment, guided by both your intuition and proven techniques to ask the right questions to broaden and shift your client’s thinking, beliefs and actions.
- Develop the core holistic coaching communication skills of observing, listening, powerful inquiry, appreciative feedback and advanced reflection techniques to create awareness, learning, action and accountability in others.
- Catalyze fresh perspectives, pave the way to new approaches, deepen self-trust, and cultivate an unparalleled sense of self-understanding and knowing.
- Gently “give the work” back to the client, igniting their capacity to be self-innovating and operating at their very best.
Catalytic Communication gives you a noticeable edge, both in terms of the results you can help your clients achieve, as well as your personal positioning as an influencer in any arena. Past participants have shared that Catalytic Communication revolutionized their role as an influencer both personally and professionally. Popular applications range from the conference room to the stage and from business transactions to your children and loved ones.

Feelings of self-doubt and panic are tough to overcome and often make you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing. The training (and Feroshia’s support) provided such a comprehensive framework for learning – not just how to coach but how to market your coaching and grow your business – that I now feel I am a ready to be in this profession. I’m empowered to move forward with my own business as a result of the coach training experience, having gained the skills and confidence necessary to take my career to the next level.

Coach Training World Certification
Choose from our CORE: Certification to get started in the coaching profession. If you are committed and want to become a highly skillful coach, you’ll want to pursue our SIGNATURE: Certification.

No. Our coach training program is all-inclusive with the exception of any membership or final exam fees that the International Coach Federation requires. These fees may range from $100 to $500 based on the pathway you choose to apply with at the ICF website, and whether or not you are an ICF member.
Upon enrollment of our coach training program, you can become an ICF member.
If I attend virtually, what can I expect?
Some of us prefer to attend trainings in-person. But there are many factors that can make it a challenge to do so: travel expenses, time away from home, scheduling difficulties, and the myriad of preferred learning styles and speeds.
These findings can’t diminish how much we love having you visit us here at our facility in Portland, Oregon. But the web-based coach training program opens our curriculum to a diverse mix of students around the globe – deepening the learning for all of us. That’s why so many new and seasoned coaches are gravitating toward the online platform.
If you’re participating for the first time, you still might be wondering about the actual experience. Here’s what you can expect…
The virtual experience
So what’s it like to train online for five days? As any of our graduates will tell you: it’s convenient, comfortable and interactive.
Our Virtual Intensives are highly interactive. Expect a comprehensive mix of education on all the essentials and coaching competencies. These are combined with active participation in demos, group discussions and practice sessions. You’ll also have unlimited access to the vast coaching resources and manuals we’ve amassed in the past two decades in our student center.
And we’ll be there to mentor you every step of the way.
If you have questions or need any additional support, we’re ready to help. Feel free to chime in at any point if you need further examples or explanation on any of the concepts we present.
By the way: that doesn’t apply to just questions – if something strikes a chord with you, let us all know. Our differences make us great! You may share an example that snaps a concept into focus for someone else.
Don’t be shy: your contribution makes our Online Intensives unique to you!
We use Zoom, a web-based platform that provides conferencing and messaging on any device. One of things we like most about the platform is that it gives you the option to view all the participants at once or focus solely on the speaker.
During breakout sessions, you’ll move to a private chatroom with 1 to 4 other people, depending on the exercises. Here you can enjoy the privacy to practice, deepen your understanding of the material, and apply it to your chosen application. Many coaches have discovered new opportunities based on the conversations and ideas that spring from these fun, creative gatherings. Plus, you’re only a click away from calling your instructor’s attention should you need help or additional clarification on something.
We are always there for you! The Zoom conference setup allows you to attend on multiple devices, syncing between your smartphone, tablet and home or office computer. We recommend participating on the largest screen possible. This enables you to see the other participants and allows them to see you. For this reason, we do ask that you participate on a device that has an active web-cam.
Are there financing options outside of CTW?
Why yes! There are a number of financial institutions that are here to help you with your career change. Please check this link to see what is possible for you!
In additional you can always go through companies like PayPal.com to create a payment plan with them similar to a credit card loan.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We are able to process payment as follows:
- Credit Card: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, JCB, and Discover
- Check: Personal or Business Checks
- Money Orders
- PayPal & PayPal Credit
Do you offer scholarships or financial aid?
Other than split-pay, we do not offer any additional financing options, such as financial aid or scholarships, at this time. Because of the deep value we’re committed to providing, we keep our school small. This enables us to provide the highest level of professional coach training and business mentoring possible. In this program, you won’t be swimming in a sea of thousands but rather engaging and learning alongside a select group of others who are deeply devoted to developing a highly successful business of their own.
Also, we have discovered that when someone invests in their development, they are positioning themselves for success. This is one of the lessons you’ll learn to do strategically and effectively in this program. In turn, you’ll be using this same philosophy to ask your clients to invest in your services and programs.
It’s worth noting that many people earn back their tuition within the first year. Some even earn 10 times their tuition (or more). The results are different for each attendee. And those who are committed to do what it takes, do succeed.
FAQ’s about the “summer event”…
Are accommodations included? Where do I stay?
Your tuition covers all of your training expenses including your manuals, coaching tools. We’ll have plenty of healthy snacks and beverages as well! Your tuition does not cover your airfare or accommodations.
There is a great choice of hotels, bed and breakfasts and AirBnB’s in Portland. Our “Tree Alberta Arts Studio” is located 7 minutes from downtown Portland – just a 6-7$ ride with Lyft & Uber. Alternatively, we have a number of AirBnB’s in the Alberta Arts district that are walking distance to the training and only 15 minutes from the airport. We are more than happy to help you to find your ideal accommodations.
Want to share a room with others? Let us know we’ll help you to get the word out! On average, students spend anywhere from $50-200/night on accommodations. There are a number of grocery stores and restaurants nearby as well.
How do I get around?
Lyft and Uber. Plus, if you’re staying nearby other students, you could carpool to keep the cost down. If you are staying in downtown, SW or NW Portland, you’re looking at a $5-7 fee for transportation.
Do people spend time outside of class together?
Yes, they do. But if that’s not for you, you’ll have plenty of time inside class too.
Should I bring my partner, husband, wife, family, dog?
Yes! There are lots of things for them to see and do in the area while you’re in class. Training will finish each day between 4pm-5pm, so you can join them for the evening, and the sun will be up until around 9:00 pm during the summer. And if you have a furry friend, we can help you to plan for their stay. Yes, Portland is very dog-friendly. (Says the mom of two pups!)
Need Help Choosing The Right Program?
Need Personalized One-On-One Help?
Well hello there – it’s Feroshia here. And, I’m leading this summer’s retreat and I hope that you’ll take advantage of the opportunity to join me in-person.
I can’t tell you how many times people ask me “Do you have an in-person option?” And, yes, we do. But this isn’t just
I founded Coach Training World when I realized that my soul’s calling was to create a global community of change makers. My coach training has since become a respected and widely-adopted system for personal and professional development used by individuals, businesses and organizations around the world.
Being a heart-centric, influential entrepreneur making your impact in the world is about making
Visiting Portland, Oregon, USA
Come for the training and stay for our beautiful, uber-friendly city and the nature that surrounds us. Maybe we’re biased, but we’ve truly got it all. OK, Feroshia is biased as she is a native Portland, Oregonian!
You’ll never leave. Portland restaurants and food carts scene offers everything from paleo, vegan, vegetarian to ethnic food from all over the world. Our unique offerings run the gamut from Voodoo Donuts to 7-course farm-to-table dining opportunities. Plus, our Saturday Farmer’s market is to die for!
Portlander’s love their music, kombucha, beer, wine, craft-spirits. We’re the home of 100’s of art, music, food and beer festivals, unique site seeing opportunities and more. There will be no shortage of things to do each evening during your stay. In fact, I recommend staying an extra couple of days! You deserve it!
Additional Learning Opportunities?
From cooking classes, terrariums, soap making, perfume making, when you’re in Portland, you are in “How To” heaven. While you’ll certainly love our learning community you can certainly continue the enjoyment.
We have fantastic day spas, outdoor hot tubs and saunas and an abundance of massage therapists to try. And, we are walking distance to the McMenamin’s Kennedy School where you can watch movies, hang out in the outdoor hot pool and choose from multiple restaurants and bars all inside one big school.
The city is packed with character, creative flair and lots of opportunity to explore the great outdoors. From Mount Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, Cannon Beach and the Oregon Coast, to the wine country and our famous Forest Park and Powell Butte with miles of inner-city hiking and mountain biking trails. You can even rent an electric bike and ponder through miles of our paved pathways! Or join in one of our world-class yoga studios! We’re also the home of Nia!
Bring the Family?
Why not bring your partner or family along, they can explore and enjoy the sites while you’re in class, and you can join them each evening. There is plenty for the kids including our world-class interactive Science Museum OMSI, Washington Park Zoo, Chinese Gardens and Japanese Gardens just to name a few.
Maybe this is the perfect time for you to be surrounded by new friends who are kind, conscious and finding they own way to their next career, business and life. People that will inspire you. Or maybe to just rest from it all in your own sanctuary with just enough people time and some sweet down time. Need a massage? Want to float in a sensory-deprivation tank… We’ve got you covered!

“Coming to Coach Training World was one of the best decisions I ever made. My former coach training left me woefully unprepared for real world coaching. After such an intense and beneficial program at Coach Training World my confidence in my skills has more than quadrupled! I am certain that I can be a successful coach and I have the tools necessary! I would and have recommended your Whole Person Coach program not only to future coaches, but to anyone who wants to go along the path of self discovery and personal transformation.”
