Rivka Malka’s School of Coaching and Transformation has undergone a massive makeover!

 

In response to your many requests, we are in the process of applying for ICF accreditation at the Level 2 (PCC) level. We have revamped our program to provide a more extensive training as is required by the ICF. This means that our students will be getting more mentorship hours, more one-on-one time, and more coaching supervision and feedback, along with the rest of the training. In addition, not only have we added more supervision and training for you, but we have also 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 are doing our utmost to be in compliance with their requirements down to the very last detail. This means that should we receive this ICF accreditation, all the students who sign up for and complete the certification track of this coming round of school, will retroactively be considered as having trained in an ICF Level 2 (PCC) accredited program. This 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. 

What we CAN guarantee is that students in the 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 welcome you to this exciting development and we are thrilled to give 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 Self – Development Track
  2. The Certification Track

 

The Self Development 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 small groups or pairs for personal development exercises or coaching practice.
  • 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 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 small groups or pairs for personal development exercises or coaching practice.
  • 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 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 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!”

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 the 2022 school year we are not as of yet ICF accredited. HOWEVER, we are currently in the process of, applying for ICF accreditation.  We have updated our curriculum, supervision and 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. According to their policy, the full application can only be submitted once this Feb 2022 program is completed and we have graduates from it. Should the ICF grant us with accreditation, then the Feb 2022 students will retroactively be considered as having attended an ICF accredited program.

 

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. 

What is included in the Certification Track?

The Certification Track meets on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Included in this training are:

20 live Zoom classes on Tuesdays. These Zoom classes are 2 and a half hours each. We have two times to accommodate women in different time zones.  1:00 PM EST or at 8:00 PM EST. 

25 pre-recorded lessons averaging approximately half an hour each 

22 pre-recorded sample coaching sessions

20 hours working with Coaching Buddies. Coaching Buddies take place in the final hour of the Tuesday Zoom classes. After one and a half hours of everyone being together on Zoom, the students then get divided up into groups of 2 or 3 (in Zoom breakout rooms) to practice coaching with each other. 

6 Observed Coaching Sessions for each student. These coaching sessions will take place 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. There will be a choice between joining a group starting at 11:00 AM EST or at 1:30 PM EST. If additional groups are needed, we will arrange another time slot for them. 

10 Mentor Coaching hours for each student. Seven out of the 10 mentor coaching hours will be done in a group setting. Three out of the 10 mentor coaching hours will be done one-on-one with Rivka Malka. The groups will meet over nine Sundays for two hours each. 

Once a month Deep Dives -  These immersive classes are a deep dive into specific coaching tools or healing subjects. They are 4 1/2 hours each. The Deep Dives involve a full, hands-on exploration that brings our coaches to true expertise. Topics include:

The Healing Model, Perspectives, Saboteur, Life Mission, Process Work and Business and Marketing Training. 

2-hour Workshop at the end of the first module. 

2-hour Graduation/workshop at the end of the 2nd module. 

Each student gets an online "Coaching Accountability Form" to keep track of their coaching.

There are various resources that come as part of the course. They include videos, articles, documents and more. These resources are on the course page of the Coaching School.

There is a Private WhatsApp group for the certification students to discuss ideas, celebrate victories, ask questions, share and learn more.

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.

Please read the other FAQs to see what else is needed for either our own CTLC certification or for the ICF certification should our program be granted accreditation from the ICF. 

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 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 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 certification, these are the requirements:

  • Attendance in both Tuesday and Sunday 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?

There are two tracks in our school. The first track is the self-development track. The second track is the certification track. 

The self-development track is an adventurous and compassionate personal journey of deepening your relationship with yourself, with others, and with G-D. You will be learning the tools for transformation and experiencing their power in real-time and through pre-recorded classes. You will learn about the language of love, holding space, untangling triggers, personal empowerment, authentic voice, and more.

Women who have participated in the self-development track have consistently reported massive shifts in their lives and transformations in their relationships. This is a course that is living, thorough, and powerful in its healing. The self-development students will receive the same pre-recorded classes as the certification track and attend the same live Zoom classes. You will participate in coaching and exercises designed to open you up to your personal beauty and strength. Additionally, you will be invited to join in another 20 hours of additional learning, discussions, and exercises in both a group forum and in smaller groups in Zoom breakout rooms.

Another important part of the training is 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. All this together makes for a vibrant and supportive, open-hearted learning experience. This is a course for anyone who wants to grow their gifts, their lives, and their relationships. It's a course for healing and awareness. Rewrite your story. Heal from the past. Discover your life mission.

The Certification Track is an exciting, cutting-edge, mixed modality, training in coaching. It includes everything in the self-development track plus many more hours of training and personal mentorship.

It 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. 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 mission is to produce compassionate, talented, and versatile coaches who are equipped to lead women on a healing journey to their best selves. To that end, we are involved and take interest in every student on a personal level. Our training includes mentorship and supervision as well as one on one sessions with Rivka Malka. 

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, 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!

What are the Extended Immersive Workshops?

At the end of each (approximately) 3 month semester, there will be an Extended Immersive on Zoom. This workshop is an amazing experience of fun, growth, learning, self-discovery and more. The Extended Immersive are 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 Coaches 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, 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 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. 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 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 coaches 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 and some deepening of your learning from comments you get about your coaching.
Do I have to do the Homework?

All homework, whether you are in the certification track or the self-development track is optional. Homework is our suggestion of 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.
If you participate in the Self - Development Track you are welcome to go at your own pace and participate only as you feel comfortable. 
The Certification Track has more participation requirements as part of the training. You will be paired up to coach and get coached. This is an incredible opportunity. 
We can not describe enough how much growth goes on in the school. Students find that their entire life changes 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 boundaries 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 joins every Zoom class and assists in the planning, teaching, and technical aspects of the class. Although this rarely happens, if Rivka Malka can not attend, Rachel will often be the substitute teacher. 

 

 

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 and 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 Tuesday 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 an 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?

Yes, we will prepare you to open up your own practice right away.
In addition to supporting you in finding practice clients during the 6-month training, we also have an in-depth workshop that will prime you with business and marketing know-how for you to take into the real world. Rivka Malka has been helping women step into their leadership for years. She runs the Advanced Coaching and Leadership Training Course and has abundant expertise and passion in helping women thrive. You will learn how to start a business, run a business, market yourself and find clients. Most importantly, you will learn how to make your coaching business a reflection of your 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 Tuesdays 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 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?

Self Development Track:

While it is not required that you watch every pre-recorded class, we highly recommend that you do. 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. 

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. 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 Tuesdays if that works for my schedule?

If you are in the Self-Development track, you can join for one or both of the afternoon and evening classes. If you are in the Certification Track, you will be asked to choose which time slot you want to attend, either afternoon or evening. Attendance is taken so that we can ensure that you are completing your requisite training hours. If you want to attend either the afternoon or nighttime class as well, beyond your committed time slot, you are more than welcome!

What is your attendance policy?

Our attendance policy differs depending upon which track you are signed up for.

Certification Track:

Attendance in every class is mandatory. The ICF requires that we track the attendance of the students and that both synchronous and asynchronous hours 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, 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 as there is a limit to the amount of leeway we have. 

Self-Development Track:

While it is not absolutely required that you attend every class, we highly recommend that you do. We want you to have the most incredible journey of growth and learning. The only way to maximize your experience is by attending every class. We sincerely hope you do!

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.

The first hour and a half of the class both tracks are together. In the last hour the certification students coach each other in small groups or one on one in the Zoom breakout rooms while the self-development students will have continued work in a group.

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 arranged it that there is a choice between an earlier or later class on that day, or we made 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.

All cancellation requests must be made in writing via email and must be sent to theredemptionschool@gmail.com. Refunds will be made within 30 days from the date the cancellation request email is received.

We understand that there is a great deal of unknown when starting something new. We encourage you to do your research before enrolling - and ask any questions you may have.

When necessary, one may transfer their course payment from one course to another without penalty up to 7 days before the purchased course begins. Any request made within 7 days of the purchased course beginning will incur a $150 transfer fee.

Requests to transfer must be done in writing via email to theredemptionschool@gmail.com.

Are my payments tax deductible?

We can not give any concrete answer about taxes. You must consult with your accountant or tax advisor. However, there is a good chance that it is tax deductible based on Treas. Reg. 1-162-5 which states that all expenses of continuing education undertaken to maintain and improve business and professional skills are tax deductible.

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.
