i found it and thank you for pointing that out
I also noticed this.
Just create your race with the trainer, then restart the game so the trainer option is reset and pick your race
Achievements are bound to Ironman Mode and checksum like most games from Paradox, that's why the console is disabled by default when ironman is on. Should still work as long as you have ironman enabled with the trainer.
