>> Hello and welcome to the next segment of your Coaching Intensive Practicum Orientation. Now that you're clear on the structure and layout of the course, let's discuss your graduation requirements. In short, there are three, Buddy Coaching, participation in a live coaching demo, and a passing score on the final exam for this course. Please keep in mind that these are the requirements that are mandated by the NBHWC, so they must be satisfied in order for us to be able to pass you. First, let's talk about Buddy Coaching. A total of four Buddy Coaching sessions are required to be completed and submitted while you're a student in this course. These are very similar to the practice coaching sessions you were required to do in your Health Coach Training Program. Here's how it works. Two of your sessions must be done with you as the client and two must be done with you as the coach. Each session should be at least 30 minutes long. The goal of these practice sessions is to apply your knowledge from this course to your coaching practice. It's also an opportunity for you to practice giving and receiving feedback with your classmates. You'll need to factor this commitment into your course time in addition to your time spent reviewing the course content and participating in the live calls. Once each session is completed, you'll have to document how the session went and the skills you used. Here's how that works. Each time you complete a Buddy Coaching session, you'll be required to fill out a form. These electronic submission forms along with instructions can be found under the Buddy Coaching tab of your Learning Center. Your four complete forms are due by the last day of the course and extensions cannot be granted under any circumstances. So we encourage you to plan ahead. Please consult your course schedule for due dates and pace yourself accordingly. Let's walk through how the Buddy Coaching process works. First, you'll need to find a classmate to conduct Buddy Coaching sessions. You'll need to work with a different buddy coach for each session. The best way to find partners is through your course Facebook group. So if you haven't joined yet, we suggest doing so in the next few days. Once you have a buddy coach to work with, clarify who will be the coach and who will be the client. Set the time to conduct a 30 to 50-minute Buddy Coaching session. You and your buddy may choose to preselect a topic to discuss and frame your session in advance or you can just be spontaneous and see where it goes. Either way, the coach will need to demonstrate the use of several skills as outlined in a document called the Job Task Analysis. Let's pause here to unpack what the Job Task Analysis is. This resource which is available in the Documents section of your Learning Center was created by the NBHWC. The Job Task Analysis defines your role as a coach. It breaks these core competencies down into different domains and then explains the skills required of each one. Each skill is coated with a number and a letter such as T7 or K3. You'll use these codes when you fill out your Buddy Coaching forms to note when you used a particular skill. Next to the code, you'll briefly summarize how you used the skill. Your instructor will walk you through the Job Task Analysis and the Buddy Coaching forms and answer questions during one of your first calls. For now, spend some time this week reviewing and getting familiar with this important resource, which also doubles as a great study guide of the concepts you should be familiar with for the exam. Also, I want to stress that you do not need to memorize the codes. They're not on the final exam of this course nor do you need to know them for the NBHWC exam. This is a reference sheet to help you remember what's expected of you over time with practice and further learning. We recommend printing this document out and keeping it handy both during and after the course. So to sum that up, the Job Task Analysis form is available in the Documents section of your Learning Center and should be kept on hand during your Buddy Coaching sessions and while filling out each Buddy Coaching form. Please refer to the codes on the Job Task Analysis to site on your Buddy Coaching forms. Along with these, you'll include a brief summary of how the session went citing specific examples where you demonstrated the skills. Another great related resource that you'll find in your Documents section is the Buddy Coaching Demonstration rubric. This is something that we put together to help you keep track of the skills you're using in your sessions. Now you're not required to submit the rubric, it's just a resource that's there to help you if you choose to use it. Remember that it's not necessary or even realistic to demonstrate every skill in a practice session, no, it would not be natural. The goal is to employ a handful of them as appropriate in each session to demonstrate your competency as a coach. Okay, now a few important details on how to fill out your Buddy Coaching forms after you've completed a session. When playing the role as the coach, you'll need to complete the form labeled as Coach. On this form, you'll evaluate yourself during the session. Please note the skills you feel you demonstrated in addition to any areas you felt you needed improvement. The goal isn't to prove that you did a perfect job, but that you can do an honest critique of what you did well, and what you could use some improvement with. When playing the role of the client, you'll also need to complete a Buddy Coaching form. On these occasions, you'll use the form that's labeled as Client to evaluate the person who is your coach. Here you'll be highlighting the coaching strategies you noticed in addition to areas that could use improvement. Again, this is a place to be honest. If you say that your partner did a perfect job with everything because you don't want to offend them or you're afraid you'll make them look bad, you're actually doing them a disservice by not giving them the opportunity to grow. Note what they did well, and also constructively note where they could gain from some additional practice. Your course instructor will review and approve your four required session forms. Some corrections may need to be made which will be noted by your instructor. You'll need to make your revisions in a timely manner to ensure that your sessions are approved in time for graduation. Incomplete forms will not count toward your graduation requirement. We recommend filling out and submitting the forms immediately or shortly after completing your session. Since the information is fresh in your mind, it will take you much less time to complete them if you do it this way. To help you understand how to fill out these forms, we've included a sample in the Documents section of your Learning Center. If you have any questions about the Buddy Coaching or Job Task Analysis, please reach out to your instructor in the course Facebook group or on one of your live calls. Now let's talk about your second graduation requirement, participating in a live coaching demo. Okay, before you freak out, I promise it's really not so bad. The thought of speaking live in front of an audience can be intimidating to some. But keep in mind that this is a supportive peer group and everyone is in the same boat as you. Your instructor is there to help you grow and encourage you. This experience will benefit you not just in terms of the feedback you receive but in the confidence you'll earn as a result of doing this. Peer-to-peer coaching demos will be done on the live calls, and your instructor will provide more information about these early on in the course. Now let's talk about your third graduation requirement, the final exam. First, let me clarify that this is not the NBHWC exam. This is a final exam for the Coaching Intensive Practicum. It's an assessment to see if you learned the core competencies presented in this course. A passing score on this exam does not guarantee a passing score on the certification exam. It is however a great barometer of the progress you're making in your studies on the topics presented in the course. So this test will be made available on the module timeline of your Learning Center during the designated test period, which you'll find in your course schedule. There are 30 questions which will be multiple choice and true/false format. You'll need a score of 70 or higher to pass, and you'll have two-timed attempts to pass the test with two hours for each attempt. If you review your lectures, attend your live calls and ask your instructor any questions that come up for you along the way, you'll do just fine. Your module recaps and the Job Task Analysis are great study materials for helping you prepare for this test. You may also choose to form study groups with your classmates. So to recap, your three graduation requirements for the Coaching Intensive Practicum are four Buddy Coach sessions, two as the coach, two as the client with the complete form submitted for each using the Job Task Analysis sheet to code your session highlights. Participation in a coaching demo on one of your live group calls and a passing score of 70 or better on your final exam. Upon meeting these requirements, assuming you're in good financial standing with the school, you'll receive a digital certificate of completion for the course and will have completed your education requirement for the NBHWC exam. If after going through the structure and requirements for this course, you find yourself thinking, "Wow, this is a lot of work." Remember that this course is an intensive, it will be intense. But the time will go by quickly, make it count. Breathe and lean into the challenge. If you need support, we'll be here for you every step of the way. I hope you found this information to be useful. In case you're wondering what to do after this course is over as in how to go about applying for the NBHWC exam, don't worry, we've got you covered there too. In the next lecture, we'll go over the requirements for sitting for the certifying exam. Until then, bye for now.
