International Coach Candidate Program

CANDIDATE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS

What is the International Coach Candidate Program?* 

This is a Program designed to help U.S. Coaches explore coaching opportunities with Candidates in Hong Kong (HK) and Singapore (SG). By following the established, successful tactics in the U.S. and by using proven tools and materials, U.S. Coaches will follow the same path with their Candidates in Hong Kong and Singapore just as they would with Candidates in the U.S. 

These Hong Kong and Singapore Candidates will receive a chance to experience the OPTAVIA Program, the Habits of Health™ System, training by the U.S. Coach, and exposure to the Certification Course & Exam to prepare them for becoming Coaches in the Hong Kong and Singapore markets, once these markets officially open.

*For further details on the International Coach Candidate Program please view the complete   Terms and Conditions.

What is the goal of the International Coach Candidate Program?

To build a Community of Coach Candidates and train them to support a powerful launch of our first two new emerging markets in Hong Kong and Singapore.

When and how is the International Coach Candidate Program launching?

On Tuesday, December 11th, Coaches can visit OPTAVIA COACH ANSWERS to find a link to the “International Coach Candidate Program Applications“.

Who can apply for the International Coach Candidate Program?

Hong Kong residents and Singapore Citizens/Permanent Residents (PR) who show their commitment to exploring the OPTAVIA Coach Opportunity and are endorsed by a U.S. Coach or qualified Coach Candidate. Candidates must also be at least 25 years old.

How many Candidates will be accepted into the International Coach Candidate Program?

To ensure all logistics and application processes can be smoothly executed, the pilot in December will allow for 50 positions for Hong Kong and 50 positions for Singapore. Then, we will open the Program to more Candidates in January and onwards.

Who can endorse Candidates for the International Coach Candidate Program?  

The following individuals can endorse Candidates for the Program:

  • Any U.S. Coaches who are already pre-qualified for the Global Health Ambassador Club (“GHAC”) or commit to pre-qualify for the GHAC by June 30, 2019 (Candidates who are endorsed by a U.S. Coach who does not qualify for the GHAC by June 30, 2019 will roll up to the next pre-qualified GHAC Coach at market launch). 
  • Qualified Hong Kong & Singapore Coach Candidates who are accepted into the International Coach Candidate Program.

What are the requirements to be accepted into the International Coach Candidate Program?

  1. Complete the International Coach Candidate Program application explaining your “why” to explore the OPTAVIA Coach opportunity;
  2. Be endorsed by your U.S. Coach; and
  3. A commitment to be open, teachable, and coachable by your U.S. Coach during your time on the 5 & 1 Plan® and while learning more about the coaching opportunity.

How long does it take for an application to be reviewed? 

It will take about 3 business days for applications to be reviewed and the Candidate notified, once the endorsement form has been received from the U.S. Coach. 

I’ve been accepted as a Candidate—now what?

Congratulations! It’s now time to complete your enrollment, while the purchase for the International Coach Candidate Program varies by market, both Hong Kong and Singapore Coach Candidates will be required to take the Certification Exam by the end of 2019 to begin their journey. After Candidates receive their Coach Candidate Certification and receive the Certification Exam, they work with their U.S. Coach to get started on Plan and for continued support and training. As always, the Candidate’s U.S. Coach will be there to guide, support and mentor the Candidate along the way.

What will International Coach Candidates receive?

  1. For Singapore – Coach Candidates purchase a Coach Candidate Certification (U.S. $199) that will include the Habits of Health System and Certification. The Coach Candidate will also receive a 6 week supply of Fuelings for the 5 & 1 Plan in a separate shipment.
  2. For Hong Kong – Coach Candidates purchase a Coach Candidate Certification (U.S. $100) that will include the Habits of Health System and Certification, plus, after being accepted into the Program, the Hong Kong Candidate will have the option to purchase a Coach Candidate Kit, which includes 6 week supply of Fuelings for the 5 & 1 Plan at a special reduced price (U.S. $99).  

Coach Candidates will also receive the following after completing enrollment and being accepted in the ICCP:

  1. Support and Mentorship from your U.S. OPTAVIA Coach;
  2. Ability to endorse other International Coach Candidates;
  3. Invitation to attend in-market Coach Candidate Trainings (February 2019 and beyond) and ability to pre-order a Coach Candidate Kit before launch.

Why is the process different for Hong Kong Candidates and Singapore Candidates?

Different jurisdictions have different rules. For Hong Kong Candidates the Fuelings must be an optional component of the Program and thus are sold separately from the Coach Candidate Certification.   

How do I purchase the Coach Candidate Certification/Coach Candidate Kit?

Once you are accepted into the Program, you will receive a link via email to complete the ordering process. Therefore, a valid email address is critical!  Please keep in mind, payment for the Coach Candidate Certification and/or Coach Candidate Kit must be made by the Coach Candidate or an immediate family member of the Coach Candidate.  Endorsing Coaches are not permitted to purchase the Coach Candidate Certification and/or Coach Candidate Kit on behalf of the Candidate. 

When must I purchase the Coach Candidate Certification/Coach Candidate Kit?

For both Singapore and Hong Kong, once Coach Candidates receive their invoice, they will have 7 days to complete the purchase and after 7 days the invoice will expire. There are a limited number of spots in the Program and the spot is only reserved once the Coach Candidate Certification has been purchased.  If the invoice expires and the Candidate still wishes to enroll, so long as there are still positions available for that month of the Program, the Coach Candidate can request a new invoice to complete their enrollment.  If the 7 days expires and after requesting a new invoice there are NO available spots for the Program for that month, the Coach Candidate will be notified by the Company that they have been put on a waitlist and they will receive a new invoice once new positions for the Program are available.  Please note that all invoices will expire in 7 days

What OPTAVIA Fuelings will Candidates receive?

International Coach Candidates will receive a 6 week supply of limited products for them to experience the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan®.

How long will it take to receive my Coach Candidate Certification/Coach Candidate Kit?

About 15 business days after successful payment.

Do I need to take the Certification Exam right away?

No, just before the end of 2019 so you have time to become familiar with coaching.

Will the sponsoring relationships be maintained once the Coach Candidate officially enrolls as a Coach (at the opening of the Hong Kong and Singapore markets)?

Yes. The sponsoring relationship will be honored so that the U.S. Coach will be the sponsor (Business Coach) of that new Hong Kong/Singapore Coach, provided that the U.S. Coach is pre-qualified for the Global Health Ambassador Club by June 30, 2019. In addition, Coach Candidates who refer additional Candidates to the Program (and who complete enrollment as a Coach in their respective market) will be the sponsor (Business Coach) of any potential Candidates they refer to the ICCP.

What is the process for when and how I can start?

OPTAVIA Coaches can locate the International Coach Candidate Program applications and FAQs on OPTAVIA COACH ANSWERS on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.
