Make sure you’re logged in

Double check your course start date

If you’re still appearing as “Not enrolled” and you’ve never accessed the course before, double check your course start date – this will be in the very first email you received about the Job Coach Certification. It may be that your course hasn’t started yet, and you need to wait a week or two. You’ll receive an email on the course start date, letting you know that you can access the course.

Your Zoom session may not have happened yet

You will only be able to move onto the next lesson after your Zoom session. For example, if you’ve completed your Module 1 Key Learnings, you need to wait until your Module 1 Zoom session is over, so you can move forward. Double check in your calendar when your zoom sessions are happening to confirm.

Select “Click to Complete Lesson”

If you’ve already completed your key learnings, your zoom session is over, but are having trouble moving forward, go to the page called “Module X Key Learnings”, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click the blue “Click to Complete Lesson” button. This will move you onto the next module.

  1. Go to https://thewayfinders.com.au/
  2. Click “Sign In” in the top right-hand side of the screen and enter your login information
  3. Once you’re logged in, in the top right, click your name to view the drop-down menu,
  4. Then click “Groups” – this will take you to your group where you can view other members, ask questions, view zoom session information and access the course.

If you don’t like looking back at your own face during Zoom sessions, but your camera needs to be on for your trainer, there is a very simple solution! Just hover the mouse over your face, select the 3 dots, and from the drop down list, click “Hide Self View”. This will hide you from yourself and still let your trainer see you.

Please note that zoom recordings are only available for 2 weeks after the zoom session.

  7. Scroll to the bottom and select “Show recordings”, then select the recording to watch it

After you have completed your module 4 Key Learnings and attended your Module 4 zoom session, you will be able to move into the programs conclusion. You will then complete your feedback, your self-assessment (like the one you did at the start of the program), and your final assessment, which is a 6 question case study. Once these steps are done, you can move through and complete the program to get your certificate and digital badge. 

Unfortunately, because your previous employer purchased the course for you, we cannot give you access to the Job Coach Certification once you’ve left the business.

But you can always create a new (free) account on https://thewayfinders.com.au/ and access all the free material available to every member!

The Members library has all sorts of free things:

  • The QuickStart Guide to Job Coaching
  • Mental Health Tips Poster
  • The 3 C’s of Engagement & Trust Poster
  • Resume Template Pack, and heaps more!

Job Coach One-on-One FAQ’s

If you wish to, at the end of the program, you may complete a one-on-one mock coaching session with a Bounce Coach.  This 15 to 30-minute session is an opportunity for your Bounce Coach to assess your level of understanding and integration of the tools, concepts and strategies that have been introduced during your training.

You will choose from one of four case studies, and a Bounce Coach will play that character while you coach them.

You will be provided a link to book your one-on-one when submitting your final assessment for the program. If you can’t find the link please email support@thewayfinders.com.au

Assessments can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes depending on how much fun you’re having.

Of course! The one-on-one roleplays aren’t for everyone, and they are also not mandatory. We offer them as an added bonus if it is something that you are interested in. 

You are also welcome to book a one-on-one with a Bounce Coach if you’d like to have a chat, get answers to some burning questions, or run through scenarios. Just let your coach know at the start of the session. 

Absolutely, if you’d like to chat to a Bounce Coach, at any time about your one-on-one assessment or anything else related to your Job Coach Certification, you can email support@thewayfinders.com.au
