August 11th, 2007 (Texas): Academy for Coaching Parents International, an institute providing a certified distance-learning program that prepares students to successfully operate their own parent coaching business, is now enrolling for the fall session commencing on 20th August 2007. The ACPI 'parent coaching certification' training program consists of 3 to 5 primary modules of coursework completed over a 6 month timespan. Courses are offered through teleconference and email.

Shedding light on the academy's open enrollment policy, Dr. Caron Goode, Director of ACPI, remarks, “The open enrollment policy allows you to start new classes three times during the year, continue your class work progressively, and get a head start on the reading material. There is no pressure on the students and they can start anytime they feel comfortable.”

The ACPI certification program consists of sixty hours of coursework which is divided into five primary tracks and an optional track. Dr. Goode helps you personalize a program that takes into account your professional education and experience. Student study coaching competencies, parenting problems and solutions, marketing a home-based business, and build their practice from their personal style, strengths, and skills. Tracks 1 and 2 are undertaken by Dr. Goode, track 3's trainer is Claire Marie Beery and tracks 4 and 5 are taken by Mr. Tom Adams. The courses focus on the interpersonal and cognitive skills for becoming a successful parent coach.

Shannon Kohler, a 51-year-old mother of two and a student of the Academy testifies, “The course has helped me in more ways than one. I had initially taken up the course so that I could have my own business doing what I do naturally. Now I want to do more than just encourage parents to be their own advocates. I am looking forward to applying my learning from the Academy to my personal parenting as well as developing a coaching practice that integrates my business and parent coaching experiences.”

“As a parent coach you can take on the role of a lifetime. People seeking parent coaches are reaching out for a mentor who is an educator, teacher or listener,” asserts Dr. Goode. “Our open enrollment strategy ensures that no one who aspires to be a part of this booming industry is left out. The student gets all the reading material beforehand. This way there are no lapses.”

Open enrollment enables students to register for the course without being time bound thereby making admission easy. As an ACPI Certified Parent Coach™, students will receive the training and the marketing information to establish a parent coaching business within their community. The certificate verifying their training and completion of program requirements entitles them to coach parents and families through one – on – one coaching, family coaching or offering parent education classes like 'Connection Parenting'.
