This page outlines iPEC’s ongoing response to the global public health emergency known as the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). Due to the evolving nature of the situation, we are monitoring updates regularly, and the information below is subject to change. Please check back often to view the latest updates! 

Updated as of Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 situation, all remaining March 2020 in-person module training classes have been canceled. The only location exception is the class in Singapore, which will continue as scheduled.  

If you are a current student or guest impacted by this cancellation, the iPEC team is currently working on arrangements to automatically enroll you in a future virtual session. Please check your inbox for this message. If you have a conflict with your newly assigned virtual date, you will have the option to change it later.  

We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any impact to future in-person training dates.  

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

Our Belief

Our Belief

These are unprecedented times. We believe that now, more than ever, there is a need for coaches in the world. During this fast-changing and uncertain time, we are seeing the iPEC Coach Community rise up and approach this unknown with compassion, understanding, and curiosity. Our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted in any way by this pandemic, and we will continue to respond and navigate the situation together as gracefully and swiftly as we are able.  

We are committed to delivering our coach training program as scheduled in accordance with our standard terms and procedures. We will comply with all international, national, state, and local guidelines. We will also provide the same power of choice and flexibility for current students to adjust their training schedule and/or locations as it works best for them.

Our Commitment

The safety and well-being of our iPEC Coach Community, students, and family, all around the world, is of our utmost concern. We are closely monitoring the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to share updates regarding what we learn from our host hotels and training facilities as well as state, federal, and international agencies. 

Across the globe, we have steady training facility partners and relationships with which we’re in close contact. We have been in communication with all of these partners and can provide the following information regarding their updated public health policies at their properties:  

  • Each is committed to complying with all recommended health standards. We and they have been closely monitoring the situation and upgrading the corresponding health and epidemic prevention measures.
  • Each is working closely with local authorities for the safety and well-being of all of our facility guests and employees. Currently, there are no confirmed guest or employee cases at any of the properties.
  • Each property and its staff have been prepared on any updated policies, procedures, and preventive measures to minimize the risk, as well as the actions to take in the event of any occurrence at the facilities. 
  • iPEC will continue to follow updates and guidance from the state, federal and international departments of public health and agencies, as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).  

We are also working closely with our logistics team, hotel staff, partners, and health professionals to assess the situation and will promptly communicate pertinent information and any decisions to you.

Please note, we are in contact with all our training location partners on a regular basis and also monitoring the situation with state, federal, and international agencies. Any location changes due to the COVID-19 situation will be updated here and enrolled students affected by the change will be notified either by email, phone call, and/or text message.

In-Person Attendance Guidelines

The entire iPEC team and community acknowledges this is a serious situation. We also appreciate that while the risk is low for most people, it is higher for others. We encourage you to use the guidance of the World Health Organization, your healthcare provider, your national public health authority, or your employer for situation updates, guidelines, and recommendations.  

We encourage you to keep your health as your top priority and ask you to take the CDC’s suggestions regarding isolation and social distancing in your area before traveling to or attending an in-person module. 

If you are an iPEC Student unable to travel to a scheduled class/module training due to any of these circumstances, please consider updating your training location to one of our virtual training options. You may also defer your training to a different date/location.  

We will announce any cancellations to in-person training locations through email, text, and/or phone call to affected students and guests. If your in-person training location is cancelled, we will automatically enroll you in a future virtual session via email from Student Support. If you have a conflict with your newly assigned virtual date, you will have the option to change it later. 

You can learn more about the virtual training dates and times in the student Hub under Training Locations. If you are ready to switch to virtual vs. in-person training, use the Module Update Request form found under the “Adjusting Location and Dates Within Your Class” section on the Training Locations page in the Hub.  

Thank you for your energy, commitment to coaching and raising consciousness, and care for your fellow iPEC coaches and family!
