How does this compare to the Ignite NeuroMotive Coach Course?
The NMC goes into far greater depth on the subject of coaching special populations. While the Ignite 101 Online Course does spend up to 90 minutes on the topic, our goal is to help coaches initiate a wide variety of programs, including tutoring, enrichment and chess.
The NMC is also built to address the needs of teachers, therapists AND coaches, while the 101 course is created for those with a solid knowledge base in movement.
What will I take away from this course?
Our aim is to provide you with actionable knowledge; you should be comfortable starting your own cognitive program when you finish.
