Application Form – Part One

Application Priority Deadline

Applications submitted 30 days prior to the course start date are guaranteed to be reviewed. We will review applications that arrive after the priority deadline on a case-by-case basis.

Dear Applicant,

The Professional Coaching Course is rigorous and can be demanding. We assume that each student who applies is fully apprised of the scope of work required to complete the program and agrees to take full responsibility for her/his well being during the year.

Given the demands of the program and the strong learning environment we wish to create, we take great care in our selection process. We seek applicants who demonstrate stability, reliability, and resourcefulness in their lives; the intellectual and emotional capacity to work with the course material; and openness to learning and personal growth.

Acceptance into the program includes several steps: approval by the instructor of your prerequisite program, completion of this application (including a photo, essays, and non-refundable, non-transferable $500 deposit), and approval of the application by the Professional Coaching Course leader.

If you are not accepted into the program, we will promptly refund your deposit. If you have any additional questions, you may request to schedule a conversation with the Professional Coaching Course leader.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and promise to act in good faith to deliver high quality coaching programs toward your development as a coach and human being.

One final note about the application process: New Ventures West does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all participants in the program.
