Coach Training

Be a Growing Coach in Life, Business, Health, & Spirit

Growing Coach Training is a course for mind, body, and spirit. This means that you can focus on Life, Business, Health or Spiritual Coaching. We designed it for growing YOU! Learn what coaching is and how to begin coaching. Certificates are given to all students upon completion, regardless of holding any degrees.

Scholarships Available! Call us directly to use this opportunity.

Come and learn about your potential for creating and growing a practice. Even if you’ve had training in a previous online or telecourse program, you may find Apositiva’s visioning and experiential processes, as well as the tools presented, to give you what you really need to get going.

Coaching is about rising to become the best as you walk alongside one another. Would you like to begin your journey to become one of those guides? Growing Coach Training offers attention to what is important: playful and easy ways to learn, practical break-out sessions, and cool fun toys! Oh, we mean materials and coaching tools.

If you missed the first module, and realize this is for you, it is possible to jump in and join our group. We will catch you up with a few meetings and when the module repeats you may return for FREE.

Growing Coach Certification: These are experiential classes, which means that you will learn how to coach and practical experience in class. We are introducing a new live webinar class. We would love to have you attend our classes. All modules are required for certification, and once certification begins we are committed to our students and coaching students commit to do their part, are expected to attend all modules (or make arrangements with instructor to catch up).

Board Certification through Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE) requires attendance at all modules. All students who are currently holding a minimum of a Bachelor degree can take the test after all modules (including Executive) are complete.

  • Executive Coaching
  • Vision Coaching
  • Advanced Coaching (Bonus Week-end)

Experience Apositiva: When you go searching for places to learn, take into consideration how available your instructors will be for you as a student. Here are some pertinent questions to ask:

  • What kind of coaching will this course cover?
  • How much will the course actually cost with training, manuals, extra books, and are there any other fees?
  • Is this only lecture, or actual practice and experiential training?
  • Where is the training held?
  • Can I talk to the instructors and meet them?

Coach Training

These questions are some ways to introduce yourself to the coaching structure. Questions are what gets the process moving. You can begin by contacting us and asking us these questions to get you started in coaching. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
Cat Wilson and Richard Aanrich have been offering Growing Coach Training for five years. In that time the course has grown. Whether you are a coach and want more actual time in practice or are new to the process, we would like to offer you the opportunity to play in a safe learning environment. Of course, having the atmosphere, location in Portland, Oregon, and delicious refreshments can make it especially nice too.

Upcoming Courses for 2021


Our Trainings are intentionally kept to small classes, which means space is limited. Refunds are given (less processing fees) only up to seven (7) days prior to course beginning. This is because our materials are customized and arrangements were set to assure quality training. When class begins, instructors may adjust dates based on student and instructor need (i.e holidays, weather conditions, Acts of God).

Classes include online components and internet access is needed.

Apositiva graduates are invited to revisit classes.

SPECIAL: Sign up now and receive one (1) year of free access to Rich and Cat for questions on class processes.
