The Jazzy Side of Coaching Ethical Quandaries

 This 10 hour course meets ICF requirements for core Ethics education

One never expects an ethical problem and it is far better to be foresighted than blind-sighted. If ethics is common sense, why do coaches have ethical issues?

Foundational information is presented in Level 1 and more cases and applications in Level 2

IF you have an ethical inquiry or complaint, ICF has an excellent Ethics Assist Line which can be used by  an email to or call +1.859.219.3580
