What is required to receive the 15 CEC points

For each of the 18 units you must create a new, or comment on an existing, forum thread relevant to the themes and topics covered in that unit. This forum post should be a short 5-10 minute exercise and is very open to your interpretation. Some alternatives for this forum post could be as follows:

  • Questions about aspects of the topic you want to learn more
  • Specific examples from your own experience and how the theory applies to them specifically
  • Sharing another blog, research paper, video or other form of media related to the topic that has not already been shared
  • Bring up for discussion alternative view points, theories or debate topics that may (constructively) add nuance to the conversation.
  • Something completely different!

These forum topics are a form of creative thought exercise so get creative, the point isn’t to be perfect or take hours to complete each one, but to engage with the content and enhance understanding.

There is no time limit on when you must submit these forum posts by, but ideally you would post one per week as you work through the content.

NOTE: Certificate of completion will not be distributed until all 18 forum posts have been submitted and reviewed by our coaches for relevance and quality.

You will find more information about this under “Coach Education” in the website menu when you register.
