Rivka Malka’s School of Coaching and Transformation has undergone a massive makeover and is one step closer to becoming ICF accredited! 

In response to your many requests that the school become ICF accredited, we are happy to announce that by the time the next round of coaching school begins (Round # 7 – July 25, 2022), we will have already submitted our application for Level 2 (PCC) ICF accreditation. Our current students in Round # 6 (in the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track) are reaping the benefits of our fully revamped program which provides more extensive training as is required by the ICF. This means that our students, in addition to the already robust and comprehensive training they receive, are getting more mentor coaching hours, more one-on-one time, more observed coaching with feedback, more supervision, and many more hours of live training. Another major change we have already implemented is that we redesigned the training to fit into just 6 months instead of a year.

 We are very excited about this!

While we cannot guarantee that we will receive accreditation from the ICF, we can tell you that we have done everything to be in compliance with their requirements down to the very last detail. Being that we will have already remitted our ICF application for accreditation before Round # 7 begins, should we receive ICF accreditation, all the students who sign up for the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track of Round # 7, will already be in an ICF Level 2 (PCC) accredited program. Our training will prepare students to apply for either Level 1 (ACC) or Level 2 (PCC) certification (or both – one after the other as you get more coaching hours) from the ICF. To be clear, we do NOT offer ICF certification. Rather, our program, should we succeed in becoming ICF accredited, will provide all the training, hours, and experience needed to apply for ICF certification (once you have all your required coaching hours and any other ICF requirements that you are meant to do on your own). For more information about the ICF and ICF certification please go to https://coachingfederation.org/

What we CAN guarantee is that students in the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track will be eligible for our in-house CTLC (Certified Transformation Life Coach) coach certification. This certification allows you to legally work as a coach in any environment and with any population. You will be able to begin a lucrative coaching career immediately upon finishing. 

Look for more details in the FAQ section below. In the meantime, we are thrilled to continue offering you more hours, more attention, and more training so that you can discover all that you are meant to be.

What is Transformation Coaching?

Transformation coaching brings you an awareness of who you are being in the world and empowers you to make way for what you truly want to create. It is both challenging and healing. Transformation coaching directly addresses your relationships, inner beliefs and magnificence.

How it started

The code was cracked. Coaching was not enough. Holy, transformational connection was the key.

Years ago I received classic Life Coaching training at a premiere coach training school. I began my practice equipped with tools and an education that was invaluable and solid.

At that time I was receiving healing work from an outside practitioner and I noticed that the more work I received the better my coaching became. I began to reach people in ways I never thought possible. I began to witness them undergoing transformation that was way beyond what I was offering them. I was amazed at their growth. What was going on?

I began to get hungry: Hungry for knowledge. Hungry to understand; What is healing? What is transformation? What is this gift that I am receiving and how I can best offer it to another person?

 

How it works

 

Our training is 6 months and has 2 tracks.

  1. The Basic Coach Training Track
  2. The Advanced Coach Training with Certification Track

The Basic Coach Training Track includes:

  • 22 pre-recorded video classes with prepared notes.
  • 20 live 2 1/2 hour Zoom classes which include coaching demos, discussions, and exercises. The first hour and a half of learning is done in a classroom experience. The next hour is spent in Zoom breakout rooms practicing and integrating the skills and practice coaching with a partner.
  • 22 pre-recorded sample coaching sessions for students to learn from.
  • Homework – There is generally a suggested homework at the end of every Zoom class and/or pre-recorded lesson. These assignments are fun and empowering.
  • 2 special two-hour experiential workshops.

The Advanced Coach Training with Certification Track includes:

  • 20 live 2 1/2 hour Zoom classes which include coaching demos, discussions, and exercises. The first hour and a half of learning is done in a classroom experience. The next hour is spent in Zoom breakout rooms practicing and integrating the skills and practice coaching with a partner.
  • 22 pre-recorded sample coaching sessions for students to learn from.
  • Homework – There is generally a suggested homework at the end of every Zoom class and/or pre-recorded lesson. These assignments are fun and empowering.
  • 2 special two-hour experiential workshops.

PLUS

  • An additional 27 hours of live training with Rivka Malka
  • 6 observed coaching sessions
  • 7 hours of mentor coaching
  • 3 one-on-one mentor coaching sessions with Rivka Malka

These lessons are carefully structured to give each student maximum attention, practice, and confidence. 

All classes are interactive, experiential, and fun. We have a hands-on approach. Each session contains teaching modules, practice modules, and experimentation. You will gain immediate experience in coaching and will receive feedback on your skills. You will be coaching fellow students (and eventually new clients if you are in the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track).

We strongly believe that you can only take your clients as far up the mountain as you have gone. Based on that belief, our training includes a process of exploration of your inner self. You will learn how to hold and heal and how to cheer and challenge. This is not only a School for Coaching, it is a School for Life. You will be equipped with the confidence, skills, and resources to take your gift to the world.

our Students tell their story

We are Different – Here’s How:

Business magazines say that Life Coaching is the number one most lucrative upcoming profession in the next five years. 

But is life coaching really enough? Can we support people without understanding the wounds or beliefs that lay beneath their actions? Can we help people to move forward in their lives without guiding them to look to a spiritual source? Can we take someone to brave new territory without having gone there ourselves? 

TLC (Transformation Life Coaching), maintains that it is possible to train coaches way above and beyond traditional life coaching practices so that their clients will experience profound and deep shifts that will impact every area of their lives. Our goal is to expand the consciousness of our students, to offer them a rich and diverse toolbox, and a new set of eyes with which to see themselves and the people they work with.

The School of Coaching and Transformation brings together ALL these modalities and more.

1) Life Coaching – Skills and techniques focused on helping people get clarity and results so that they can live with choices instead of feeling stuck. 

2) Inner Work – Bringing awareness and healing to one’s past and opening new doorways for a beautiful present and future.

3) Somatic Work – Addressing the body and the energy patterns that are stored within it that bring about subconscious reactions.

4) Emunah – Spiritual frameworks that encourage a client to understand spiritual perspectives that hold the answers they seek.

5) Restorative Healing – Structures, accountability, and goals to help a client craft the life they desire to create. 

PLUS a mixed media toolbox of art, music, and writing exercises that expand each session for maximum impact.

Most importantly, all of our teachings are firmly rooted in Torah sources. The growth and empowerment that we bring to our students and clients are designed to bring them closer to Hashem/G-D, to their purpose, to themselves, and to their loved ones. We combine Torah-true values with classic and modern coaching tools to create a truly transformational experience.

How it started

Years ago, I received classic Life Coach training at a premiere coach training school. I began my practice equipped with tools and an education that was invaluable and solid. At that time, I was receiving healing work from an outside practitioner and I noticed that the more work I received the better my coaching became. The healing that I was receiving was having a ripple effect. I began to reach people in ways I never thought possible. I was learning about love. I saw that the more I was willing to look at myself with love, the greater the room it gave clients to see themselves with love.

I began to get hungry. Hungry for knowledge. Hungry to understand. What is healing? What is transformation? How can I best offer it to another person? With Hashem’s loving kindness I began to encounter more and more modes of healing. Somatic Work, Inner Child Work, Compassionate Holding, Integrated Transcendence, and more. At that same time, in my own growth process, I was deepening my emunah/faith, working on forgiveness, and solidifying my knowledge that only Hashem/G-D is the one, true Healer.

I was led to different teachers and slowly, my approach evolved. It was a blend of all the incredible lessons I’d learned, along with my own passion for seeing people flourish.

During this time, I began to run Redemption Retreats. The extended length of these retreats and the diversity of my staff allowed us to use all of the modalities at once. The results were amazing. Every Retreat was a three-day long song of growth. At the heart of it all, however, it was the unconditionally accepting atmosphere and the space of emunah/faith that held the miracles. 

Following the Retreat, many participants experienced powerful growth, both through the Retreat work and through their follow-up coaching. They were on fire. They became ready to help others.

It was time to open Rivka Malka’s School of Coaching and Transformation.

Leaders Testimonials

Mrs. Ruthi Lynn

“Rivka Malka is a uniquely talented and holy woman. She has helped women remove the blocks that they often face, that sometimes seep in very subliminally in their lives. By identifying with them in a somatic way, identifying perhaps where they manifest themselves in their lives today, she helps them remove the blocks in a way that is very restorative and very natural. Many women feel very stuck in their lives and they are not sure what they are doing wrong. They internalize a sense of guilt and move away from a sense of self-acceptance. Rivka Malka really helps you find that love and that self-acceptance that Hashem really wants you to have in order for you to be able to fulfill your life’s purpose.”

Rebbetzin Gina Goldstein

Wife of Chief Rabbi of South Africa, founder of The Shabbos Project

“We brought Rivka Malka Perlman to South Africa for our Sinai Indaba 2018 event. She is a highly experienced, refined, Torah-true life-coach and healer, who is able to relate to diverse people in the most real and honest way. She is a living example of compassion, understanding and Ahavas Yisroel. Rivka Malka is multi-talented, she has so many diverse gifts to give!”

Mrs. Eve Levy

Founder of Inspired Jewish Women Momentum trip leader

“Rivka Malka has this amazing way of connecting and reconnecting every woman, of all backgrounds, to HaShem. Just being in her presence makes you want to live a more spiritual and elevated life. I have personally benefited tremendously as a participant in one of Rivka Malka’s retreats and I have also worked side by side with Rivka Malka in bringing her retreat to other women. She has a precious light that our Jewish world needs to experience very much."

Following a near death experience, I’m on a mission to help every woman discover G-d’s personal unconditional love for her.

 

FAQs
Questions about ICF accreditation
Is your school ICF Accredited? Are there any new updates regarding accreditation?

As we enter into Round # 7 of Coaching School, we are not as of yet ICF accredited. HOWEVER, we do have an amazing update regarding ICF accreditation. Our application for ICF accreditation will be submitted before the start date (July 25, 2022) of Coaching School Round # 7. This is very significant because should the ICF grant us with accreditation, then the accreditation begins from the day the application was submitted. This means that students in the  Advanced Coach Training with Certification track of Round # 7 will retroactively already be participants in an ICF accredited program. We have already updated our curriculum, supervision hours, and training hours completely based on the ICF requirements for accredited programs. While there can be no absolute guarantees, our conversations with the ICF have let us know that we are in compliance with their requirements.

 

If The Coaching School retroactively gets ICF accreditation, does that mean that I automatically become an ICF certified coach?

As with any program, when the ICF gives their accreditation to a program, it means that the program covers all of the training, supervision, and testing that the ICF requires for that particular level of training.

However, even after completing an accredited program, there are still more requirements from the ICF in order to get your actual certification. Most of these requirements involve hours of coaching practice. 

The ICF website https://coachingfederation.org/ has updated information about their final requirements for applying for their certification. 

Who will I be certified to coach with your CTLC (Certified Transformation Life Coach) Certification?

The Coaching School meets the requirements to certify you to coach all over the world servicing all populations. With this certification, you will be able to coach on a personal or corporate level.

All this is true even without ICF Certification. Our school's in-house certification process includes a written exam, 60 hours of coaching practice, and a recorded session.

What level of ICF accreditation are you applying for?

We are applying for the PCC level (Level 2) accreditation. This is a very advanced level that requires more than double the training hours needed for the ACC level (Level 1) accreditation. We still can not guarantee that we will be granted accreditation from the ICF. That being said, if we do become accredited as a PCC (level 2) program, then we will have an add-on application to also become accredited as an ACC (level 1) program.

This way, students who go through the PCC (Level 2) program will automatically have completed the ACC (Level 1) program also. Students can then just finish the ICF’s additional requirements and apply for the ACC (Level 1) certification. Once they receive the ACC (Level 1) certification, they can continue to work towards their PCC (Level 2) certification which requires many more hours of coaching.

In the event that the school is not granted with ICF accreditation, can I still become a certified coach?

If the school is not granted ICF accreditation, if you went through and completed the Advanced Coaching with Certification Track along with any other certification requirements such as having completed 60 coaching hours, you will still become a certified coach through our own CTLC (Certified Transformation Life Coach) certification and will be able to set up coaching practice immediately.

What are the requirements for the CTLC (Certified Transformation Life Coach) certification?

Many of our students come for their own personal development or to add a skill set to their already established careers. This is wonderful and you will be able to apply your gifts in an infinite amount of situations.

However, for those that are seeking CTLC certification, these are the requirements:

  • Attendance in both  Sunday and Monday live classes.
  • Coaching for a minimum of 60 hours
  • All coaching sessions must be entered into the "Coaching Accountability Form"
  • Completion of a written exam
  • Recorded coaching session (minimum 30 minutes) that is sent in and graded by the Coaching School staff
General Questions
What are the 2 tracks a student can join? What are the main differences between the 2 tracks?

There are two tracks in our school. The first track is the Basic Coach Training track. The second track is the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track. 

Both the Basic Coach Training track students and the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track students attend the Monday live Zoom classes together. Students in both tracks also attend the 2 Intensive Workshops together. Students in both tracks receive the same weekly pre-recorded classes and weekly pre-recorded sample coaching sessions. 

Although students in both tracks receive a wonderful coach training along with an adventurous and compassionate personal journey deepening their relationships with themselves, others, and with G-d, there are still quite significant differences between the 2 tracks. The following is a list of offerings that students receive in the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track above what the Basic Coach Training track has to offer. 

  1. Six Sundays of live training where we take a “Deep Dive” into a number of different very important topics. Topics include The Healing Model, Perspectives, Saboteur, Life Mission, Process Work, and Business and Marketing Training. These Sunday “Deep Dives” are 4 ½ hours each and total an extra 27 hours of live classes. 
  2. Six Observed Coaching Sessions for each student. These coaching sessions take place partially during the Monday Zoom classes and mostly on Sundays in a group setting that is no larger than 10 people. Each student will receive written feedback for four out of the six sessions. The groups will meet over nine Sundays for two hours each.
  3. Ten Mentor Coaching hours for each student. Seven out of the ten mentor coaching hours will be done in a group setting. The groups will meet over nine Sundays for two hours each. Three out of the ten mentor coaching hours will be done one-on-one with Rivka Malka. 
  4. A final Performance Evaluation will be administered to each graduating student. The final performance evaluation contains an actual observation of coaching at least one half-hour to one hour in length. Students will receive written feedback/scoring for their performance evaluation that provides information regarding their performance on each of the ICF Core Competencies.
  5. Maybe most important - The curriculum is designed to provide the full training for an accredited ICF Level 2 (PCC) course. This means that should we be granted with ICF accreditation, students will have everything they need to apply for Level 1 (ACC) or Level 2 (PCC) certification from the ICF. Of course, there are additional requirements from the ICF above the training you receive in order to apply for certification from the ICF such as their required amount of coaching hours. 

In both tracks, students learn the tools for transformation and experience their power in real-time and through pre-recorded classes. They learn about the language of love, holding space, untangling triggers, personal empowerment, authentic voice, and more. Women who have participated have consistently reported massive shifts in their lives and transformations in their relationships. Both tracks enjoy the community support that forms amongst the women. As the student body works together to grow their skills, friendships are formed and beautiful openings often occur. This makes for a vibrant, supportive, and open-hearted learning experience.

The Advanced Coach Training with Certification track is designed to give you the most comprehensive coach training in the shortest amount of time so that you can begin coaching with confidence and clarity as soon as possible. The focus is on providing many more hours of live coach training, supervision, and personal mentorship. The school is involved and takes interest in every student on a personal level. In addition to everything else, the three one-on-one mentor coaching sessions with Rivka Malka attest to the school’s dedication to creating the most compassionate, talented, and versatile coaches who are equipped to lead women on a healing journey to their best selves. 

Our school has trained hundreds of coaches from around the world and our student's feedback consistently is that this is the best program they have ever attended. Their clients as well have reported having life-changing experiences of healing that were previously unavailable to them. 

Our belief is that "You can only take a person as high up the mountain as you yourself have gone." To this end, we challenge our students to courageously coach and get coached, and to grow and help others grow, all within the training. Being trained in this experiential way is an exhilarating and unforgettable experience. Our students graduate confident and clear in their coaching abilities ready to take on paying clients or to serve at the business or communal leadership level.

We are very proud of our graduates!

 

If I join the Basic Coach Training Track, does my training count for anything towards getting my ICF certification?
Disclaimer: The ICF has been making many changes to their credentialing and certification processes. The details in this answer are based on the current ICF guidelines. Certain things will not change, such as the fact that the training hours that students get from our Basic Coach Training Track will count towards hours needed for applying for an ICF credential through the portfolio path. However, other details may change. Please refer to the ICF website to get the latest updates at https://coachingfederation.org/credentials-and-standards/credentials-paths/acc-credential
 
The ICF has different paths to becoming an ICF certified coach. One path is called the "ACTP Path". The ICF website describes this path as follows: "Accredited Coach Training Programs (ACTP) have built into their program the education hours, mentor coaching and performance evaluation required to earn an ICF Credential. If you have completed this type of education program, you will submit your ACTP certificate and coaching experience hours in your credential application. Once the application review process is complete, you will then take the CKA Exam." 
 
Should our school become ICF accredited, our Advanced Coach Training with Certification track would be an ACTP program.
 
Another path to becoming an ICF certified coach is called the "Portfolio Path". The ICF website describes this path as follows: "If non ICF-accredited programs or Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units will be used to meet the required 60 hours of coach-specific education, you must use the Portfolio Path to apply for a credential. For non ICF-accredited education, the program curriculum will need to be submitted with robust documentation to ensure the education received meets ICF standards. The other requirements – mentor coaching and recorded coaching session for the performance evaluation – will need to be verified separately and must be included in the application, along with the program certificate(s) and coaching experience hours. Once the application review process is complete, you will then take the CKA Exam."
 
Our Basic Coach Training Track training hours can be used toward applying for ICF certification specifically through the Portfolio Path. The other option students would have once they complete the Basic Coach Training Track is to come back to our school (or get it elsewhere) and get the additional training they need (mentor coaching, observed sessions, performance evaluation...) in order to apply for ICF certification through the ACTP Path.

What are the Extended Immersive Workshops?

At the end of each (approximately) 3 month semester, there will be an Extended Immersive Workshop on Zoom. This workshop is an amazing experience of fun, growth, learning, self-discovery, and more. The Extended Immersive Workshop is the culmination and integration of all the growth and learning of each module. In these online workshops, we journey together through a series of powerful personal exercises. It's a celebration of your transformation! The workshop is 2 hours long and generally starts at 12:00 PM (EST).

What if I am already a coach? Will I still benefit?

Yes. This probing training will stretch your skills at whatever level you are at. We have had many therapists and classically trained coaches tell us that despite their previous experience they learned entirely new approaches at the Coaching School. We are proud to say that one of the most common feedback we receive from our students is that out of all the many training programs they attended, this one was the best. Our goal is to continue making it better and better.

What are the sources for your trainings?

Rivka Malka is trained in CoActive coaching through CTI - The Co-Active Training Institute. In addition, she is trained in Somatic Work, Inner Child Work, and Business Coaching.

Our training is experiential. Although we do not always quote text outright, please be advised that everything we teach is deeply rooted deeply in Torah sources. Some of these include The Ramchal, Chovos Halevavos, Meslias Yesharim, and Rebbi Nachman, as well as more contemporary sources like the Aish Kodesh, Nesivos Shalom, and the Alai Shor.

Along with your coaching resources, you will receive the Torah sources for these ideas straight from the text. You will love seeing these powerful truths in black and white.

Are all students accepted?

The school is for women only, so we do not accept men into the program. We do accept all female students that are 18 years old and above. However, we do reserve the right in certain instances, to not allow for specific potential participants to join the course. For example, if we feel that the course would not be good, healthy, or safe for someone, or we feel that they would not be a good fit with the other students in the course, we exercise our right to not allow that person to join. We also reserve the right to remove any student from a course if they are having a deeply negative impact on the rest of the participants or on the learning environment.

How can I begin practice coaching if I didn't get fully trained yet?
As training progresses you will often be asked to coach someone. We bring our students into this in stages. In the first month, you only practice with other students in your class. In the second month, you can move on to practicing with your family and close friends letting them know are coaching and that you are a student and you are just practicing. After three months, you can begin to coach others outside of your circle. While you may not be a full-fledged coach, you will already have had lots of training behind you that will give your coachees a good experience. We believe in our coaches!
 
To address the concern or fear about jumping into coaching, yes, it is scary to just jump in. However, it will certainly be the place where you get the most learning. A few points: If you joined the course, it means you are already compassionate and care deeply about people. It means you probably listen well. That is already enough to have a great session.
You can also let them know you are just starting out and that you are practicing. Thank them for letting you practice with them. Ask for their feedback.
You're learning something new and there is no judgment on how you do and what you do in the coaching sessions. There is just a celebration for putting yourself out there along with some deepening of your learning from comments you get about your coaching.
Do I have to do the Homework?

If you are in the Basic Coach Training track homework is optional. If you are in the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track, depending on what the homework is, the school will let you know if it is optional or not. The important thing to remember is that homework is our suggestion about how you can deepen your knowledge and growth. To get the most out of the training, it is in your best interest to do all the homework.

Do I need to be Jewish to attend The Coaching School?

You do not need to be Jewish to attend the school. We welcome women of all faiths in our school. We stand deeply in the simple truth that we are all children of one G-d. The Torah values of the school create a kind, non-judgmental environment where women from all walks of life can learn from one another.

What should I know about the intensity and the personal growth that happens in The Coaching School?
Our school is a safe and gentle space to learn and grow. There is no pressure to be particularly intense. That being said, there are a tremendous amount of opportunities to share, be vulnerable, and to step out of your comfort zone.
The pre-recorded classes themselves can bring up thoughts about your own life and ideas about how you can apply what you’re learning to your own life. The live Zoom classes generally have real coaching sessions that can be emotional. This is true whether you choose to be the one who gets coached or you are just observing.
In both coaching school tracks, you will be paired up to coach and get coached. We call this "Coaching Buddies". This is an incredible opportunity. If you participate in the Basic Coach Training Track you are welcome to go at your own pace and participate only as you feel comfortable. If you are in The Advanced Coaching with Certification Track, you will have more participation requirements as part of the training. 
We can not describe enough how much growth goes on in the school. Students find that their entire lives change for the better. Their relationships. Their marriages. Their self-worth. Their confidence. Their happiness. Their relationship with G-D. It is truly amazing to see. If you join and are open to growing, you are in for a wonderful journey. Please take a look at some of the testimonials.
That being said, please note that the school is a safe and boundaried container for exploration. Staff are mindful of what content is appropriate for class and which topics are best left for private discussion.
Who teaches each module/semster?

Rivka Malka teaches both the pre-recorded lessons and the live Zoom classes.

Rachel Wormeli, our school administrator, joins many of the Zoom classes and assists in the planning, teaching, and technical aspects of the class. 

Debbie Grusd joins for some of the Zoom classes and is also involved with helping with the student coaching supervision.

 

What happens after I sign up for The Coaching School?

You will receive a welcome email that contains all the information you need to know to be part of the school. The email also includes links to the school WhatsApp group, a short questionnaire, a form with the school confidentiality agreement, and other agreements. You will also have access to the first 3 introductory classes and the first lesson of the first module (Foundations 1). Those classes should be watched before the first live online Zoom class.

Does The Coaching School have a confidentiality agreement and other agreements that the students need to sign?

Yes. It is very important that the students feel safe to share and know that their information will remain private. It is also important for the school to be a safe and comfortable atmosphere for everyone. Students agree to have appropriate conduct which is in line with the values of the school. There are a few other items in the agreement. We created a Google Form with all the agreements. It is as simple as just putting your basic information in, clicking “I agree” and submitting it.

What coaching counts as part of my coaching hours?

For the CTLC Certification, any coaching you do that is real coaching is counted as part of your 60 hours. Real coaching means that it is not just a regular conversation, it is a coaching session using the coaching tools. If you are doing real coaching in the breakout rooms during the Monday night live Zoom calls, you can keep track of that time and use it towards your 60 hours. If you coach someone in a public setting (let’s say in front of the class) during the Zoom call, you can count that as part of your 60 hours.

In the event that we become ICF accredited, your coaching hours would have to be mostly paid coaching hours. The pro bono coaching hours that you do would also have to be completed out of school hours. The ICF also requires a different amount of coaching hours for their certification. Please refer to their website for more information about that https://coachingfederation.org/

Will I learn about the business and marketing aspects of a real coaching practice so that I can feel confident in starting my own coaching career right away?

As part of the Advanced Coach Training with Certification track, there is a full "deep dive" Sunday where four and a half hours are dedicated to learning about business practices. This is in addition to a pre-recorded class about business, a Monday Zoom class, and various other teachings that occur during the rest of the training.

As part of the Basic Coach training Track, there is a pre-recorded class about business, a Monday Zoom class, and various other teachings that occur during the rest of the training.

Examples of some of the topics that we cover are working with and collaborating with other professionals, payments, creating designed alliances with your clients, cancelations, how to advertise, basic marketing, resources for building a webpage, how to price yourself, when to refer out, what are red flags, boundaries, how to open and close a session,  and more.

Rivka Malka has been helping women step into their leadership for years. She created the ACBLT (Advanced Coaching and Leadership Training) Course and has abundant expertise and passion in helping women thrive. The ACBLT course goes in-depth on how to start a business, run a business, market yourself and find clients. Most importantly, Rivka Malka teaches how to make your coaching business a reflection of your own tafkid/purpose.

Questions about schedule and attendance
How long is each semester?

There are 2semsters in the program. Each semester is approximately 3 months.

What day of the week are the live classes?

Core classes are on Mondays with two time slots to accommodate different time zones. This is for both tracks.

Additionally, Deep Dives,  Immersive Extended Workshops, Mentorship, and Supervision take place on Sunday for the Advance Coach Training with Certification Track students.

Please refer to the other FAQs for the full schedule of each track.

 

Are the pre-recorded lessons a requirment for me to listen to?

Basic Coach Training Track:

Yes, in order to graduate, you have to listen to all of the pre-recorded classes. We want you to have the most incredible journey of growth and learning. Each pre-recorded class is targeted at a different tool and topic. We would not want you to miss out. 

Advanced Coach Training with Certification Track:

The pre-recorded classes contain the core material of the coaching tools you will be using. Each one is targeted at a different topic and tool. They are mindfully and intentionally planned. In following all of the rules of the ICF, our school is required to keep track of every student making sure that all of the pre-recorded classes are watched as part of their curriculum.

Note: Most classes are only half an hour long. Generally, this is the only "homework" requirement that you will have during the week. And good news... our students enjoy them!

 

Can I attend both Zoom classes on Mondays if that works for my schedule?

At the beginning of the course, students are asked to choose between the Monday 1:00 PM EST classes or the 8:00 PM EST classes. Once students choose a time slot, that becomes their time for classes on Mondays. If there is a week where your designated time slot does not work for you, students are asked to be in touch with the school to arrange the other time slot for that week. Students can not attend both Monday Zoom classes.

What is your attendance policy?

Basic Coach Training Track:

In order to graduate, one is required to attend every live Zoom class. We want you to have the most incredible journey of growth and learning. The only way to maximize your experience and to become fully trained is by attending every class. 

Advanced Coach Training with Certification Track:

Attendance in every class is mandatory. The ICF requires that we track the attendance of the students and that their required training/learning hours, both synchronous and asynchronous, are accounted for. 

Synchronous learning is learning that is done in real-time together with the instructors.

Asynchronous learning is learning that is not done in real-time with the instructors such as homework, reading, research, and practice coaching. 

Certification involves certain amounts of both types of learning.

In an emergency situation, if you do have to miss a class, our students are required to let us know via email @ theredemptionschool@gmail.com. The recording of the Zoom class that was missed may be watched at a later time and you must let the staff know that you completed watching it.

This is for emergency situations only. Being that there are very specific guidelines from the ICF in terms of the required training/learning hours and what is needed to graduate, there is a limit to the amount of leeway we have. 

 

What is the difference between the pre-recorded class and the live online Zoom class?

Each semester has at least 10 pre-recorded video classes and at least 10 live online Zoom classes. The pre-recorded classes teach the core information and tools about a subject.

The live online class goes deeper into explaining and exploring that subject.

The live online class will be a lively interactive class including live coaching demonstrations, coaching observation and feedback, different exercises, answering any questions, understanding the tools and teachings and lots of self-discovery.

 

When I am in a Zoom class, does my video have to be turned on?

During the Zoom classes, everyone attending must have their video turned on. This is the required level of participation.

If there is an emergency that does not allow you to have your video turned on, we ask that you please let the school know in advance so we can be sensitive to your needs. 

 

Can I join for just one out of the semesters?

There is no option to sign up for just one semester.

For the live Zoom classes do you acommodate those living in different time zones?

We created the schedule to accommodate as many time zones as possible. We are in the EST time zone. Anytime we have a live Zoom class on a particular day, we either arrange that there is a choice between an earlier or later class on that day, or we make it on a Sunday where the same time works for people in different time zones. See the other FAQs for the full schedules of both tracks.

haskamos

Rabbi Shmuel Zev Juravel

It is an honor for me to pen these words of Haskama to Rebbetzin Perlman’s unique school where people learn how to reach inner joy and satisfaction in their Yiddishkeit.

Having grown up in a home full of Torah, yiras Shamayim, chessed and shimush Talmidei Chachamim, she has founded The Rivka Malka School of Coaching and Transformation on her own Torah experience. The school and its hashkafos are steeped in the holy words of Torah, Chazal and Tzaddikim throughout the generations, in both nigleh and nister. Rebbetzin Perlman has spent her life doing unbelievable chessed, teaching and bringing out the potential in everyone she meets. She has a positive and long lasting uplifting influence on all the women she meets. Her program brings women closer to Hashem, the Torah, their families, their friends and their true selves all within the framework of the Torah.

May HKB”H be with her to help guide and inspire for many happy healthy years with her wonderful husband.

Bibracha Vihakara,

Rabbi Shmuel Zev Juravel

You will learn how to hold and heal, how to cheer and challenge.

This is not only a School for Coaching. It is a School for Life.
