The 3D coaching course is a great course. There is so much information and by the time you get to the end you have to go back in the handbook to remember all the great teaching. Even if you are a coach that is doing may of these things already it really reinforces the importance of those 2nd and 3rd dimension aspects that make a team a great community for the athlete.

I believe wholeheartedly in 3D Coaching and what it will do for my athletes and the community that I am a part of. For those who find it difficult to buy into the abstract, the subjective aspects of coaching—much of this framework is grounded in social and sports psychology and are considered research-backed, scientific fields of study. In this day and age, it would be a dishonor to the youth we interact with to NOT attempt to reach them in the 3rd dimension.

The course was very inspirational. I was someone that thought I was doing all I could for the kids I coached. But after going through the course I've realized that I could do so much more for the kids I coach. It helped me come up with some great ideas on how to reach the kids on a deeper level and inspire them do good things on the field and in life.

FAQ's

What is the difference between the course for certification and the course for college credit?

If a student wants to receive college credit for taking 3Dimensional Coaching, he/she must enroll in that version of the course. The cost is $550 for 3 hours of transcripted college credit (graduate level), whereas the cost is only $125 to take the course for certification. The course for college credit has an additional unit utilizing Joe Ehrmann’s book InSideOut Coaching, while the course for certification does not include this extra work.


What is the difference between 3Dimensional Coaching and 3Dimensional Coaching?

The version of the course for certification contains the same modules, learning objectives, videos, quizzes, exercises and planning tools as the standard version. The difference is that it provides short faith-based video teachings at the end of each module that help coaches explore the topic at hand through the lens of their faith. These add-ons are provided by FCA, a level 3 partner of the 3D Institute.


If I choose the Course for Credit option, will I still receive my 3D Coaching certificate?

Yes. Whether you are taking a course for certification only, or the course for certification AND college credit, you will be mailed a hard-copy of your certificate once you complete your coursework.


Can I use this course to satisfy CEU’s and/or professional development requirements?

Because our curriculum is based on the academic research of Dr. Jeff Duke E.D.d., and the content is taught in the university setting at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, school districts and athletic organizations should have no problem counting this coursework towards professional development requirements. Check with whomever is in charge of professional development in your organization to inquire, and let us know how we can help you get it approved.


I’m an administrator and I want ALL of my coaches to be certified. How do I get them enrolled?

We have many school districts, clubs, and athletic organizations who require their coaches to be 3D certified. This process is easy. Simply reach out, let us know how many licenses you would like to purchase, and we will set up a unique code that will allow your coaches to enroll in the course at no cost to them. We will then send you an invoice, and you can pay for them all at once out of your athletic budget, professional development budget, or with donated funds from sponsors. As an administrator, we will give you tools to help guide your coaches through this journey and set you up with account access so you can monitor their progress.


Once I enroll, am I on a time limit to complete the online course?

You set the pace for your coursework. If you are taking the course for certification only, there is no deadline unless you are in a situation where a supervisor establishes one for you. However, if you are taking the course for credit and you want to receive your grade at the end of the current trimester, you must complete your coursework in correspondence with the university academic calendar. If you don’t complete the work within the trimester, you can simply keep working at your own pace until you finish. Once you are done, you will receive your grade.


Do I have to buy the Companion Study Guide to receive my certification?

No. Though we feel that it is the best practice to use the Companion Study Guide to enhance your learning experience, it is not required to receive your certificate. Keep in mind that if you are using the coursework to count towards professional development requirements, the study guide will allow you to engage with the 3D training for many more clock hours than the online training alone. This should translate to more CEU’s, recertification points, etc.


How do I use the Companion Study Guide?

The Companion Study Guide will help chronicle your journey through the 3D Coaching online training. This spiral-bound book can be used as a journal to take notes from the online training. Also, it can serve as a quick reference guide to remind you of key teaching points that were presented in the video teaching. However, we believe the best way to use this resource is in the context of community with others. Each chapter corresponds with an online module and has thought provoking questions that allow coaches to discuss and process the content with each other. Coaches can watch the video modules on their own, then get together to discuss using the Companion Study Guide in small groups.


Can the Companion Study Guide be used to complement ANY version of the course?

Yes. Whether you are taking one of the courses for certification only, or the course for certification AND college credit, the Companion Study Guide will correspond with the training you experience online. However, if you are taking the course for credit, the extra coursework associated with Joe Ehrmann’s book InSideOut Coaching is not associated with the Companion Study Guide in any way.


If my school district/organization is requiring me to be certified in 3D Coaching, can I enroll in 3Dimensional Coaching?

Yes, unless your supervisor tells you otherwise. Because the 3D Coaching portion of the training is identical in both versions, you will experience the same learning objectives regardless of which version you choose. By enrolling in the version, you are simply opting to have access to an additional 1.5 hours-worth of faith-based content that is complementary to the 3D training. This content has been provided by FCA, a level 3 partner of the 3D Institute.
