How long do I need to wait after I finish Foundation to do Development accreditation?  
There is no wait time between completing Foundation accreditation and moving on to Development.  The Foundation coaching course is available online, and once completed, you can move on to the next level.  

I had accreditation a long time ago and it's now expired, what can I do?  
Coaching accreditation is current for 4 years and then coaches need to update by completing their practical coaching hours and attend continuing education events.  More information about this process is available on the UPDATING page.  Coaches can submit a RPL request for consideration.  Any request needs to be supported by a full coaching history, relevant qualifications and evidence of continuing education for consideration.  There may be a cost incurred for this process.
