COVID-19 Student Updates

Current Announcements

Updated as of Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Due to the ongoing impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the priority iPEC places on the safety of our students and staff, the physical locations for the following Mod II trainings in October have been moved to a virtual classroom:

  • Chicago 
  • Los Angeles 
  • New Jersey 
  • London 
  • Netherlands 

If you are a student affected by this update, please check your email and/or Hub announcements area for further details. 

As a reminder, the physical location Module III trainings scheduled for September and October have been moved to virtual classrooms.

If any physical training locations must be canceled due to the pandemic, students are automatically moved into a virtual training location to save their seat. The Student Support team will contact any affected students one month prior to the training so there is adequate time to make adjustments if needed.

Our next announcement for changes to physical module training locations will be posted on Thursday, October 1st

Student Support Requests

For those who are waiting on assistance from the Student Support team, we ask for your continued patience as we prioritize and respond to the overwhelming amount of help requests. Please know that your request has been received and do not submit multiple tickets or emails to Student Support, as this creates confusion and can actually lengthen the queue for yourself and others needing service assistance.

You can also check the Help Center for self-service troubleshooting for common questions and technical issues.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work together to keep moving forward during these unprecedented times!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What Happens if my Physical Mod Classroom is Cancelled?
If your physical classroom location must be cancelled due to the pandemic, please note the following: 

—The physical classroom location will be moved to a live virtual classroom. Every student who was previously assigned in that classroom will automatically be assigned to a live virtual classroom so that we may save your seat in the class.

—Once you are assigned to a live virtual classroom and your seat is saved, you will then have three options to choose from:

  • Option 1: Attend the module virtually as assigned 
  • Option 2: Request an alternate virtual classroom training date/time zone
    Please note: Each virtual classroom has an attendee limit, so if you request a different virtual training date/time zone you will be immediately added to that class if there is room and if there is not, you will be added to the waitlist to be processed if seats become available. 
  • Option 3: Defer to a future physical classroom
    — Please note: If you decide to defer to a future physical classroom, you will acknowledge that you are releasing your seat from your newly assigned classroom so another student may have it.

    — Additionally, the future classroom schedule for physical attendance is not guaranteed per the ongoing global crisis, and will be processed once seats are available.

Q. What are the logistical requirements for attending the live virtual classroom?
You can view the requirements for technology, environment, important dates, and guest attendance
for the live virtual classroom here.

Q. When will I know when the next physical mod classroom will be available?
We will be making announcements on the first of each month on this page. Should you choose to wait to attend a physical classroom, and see it announced on the top of this page, navigate to the Coach Training Program > Training Locations page
in the Hub and fill out the Module Update Request form to request your desired location and date. You may also check the current status of locations for our training modules on the iPEC website:

Q. Will my other “mod mates” be moved to the same virtual classroom with me?
You might be placed in a class outside of your local time zone and/or combined with another iPEC cohort. If you are in a combined class, this gives you the unique opportunity to experience an expanded iPEC network where you will meet and interact closely with another classroom of like-minded iPEC coaches.

Q. The tuition I paid was for three physical/in-person modules, do I get a refund?
No refunds will be distributed. In reality, it actually costs more to put on a virtual training than it does to hold a physical location training! The great thing is that iPEC has chosen not to pass along these added expenses to you.

Q. Where can I learn more about the virtual classroom experience?
You are invited to learn more about the virtual classroom experience in the following ways:
