Over 25 Coach Training Classes Per Week
At International Coach Academy we have students studying to become a coach from all over the world as well as global trainers so our Teleclass Schedule mirrors the needs of our students. We have over 25 classes per week with modules rotating through a class time. This means you can choose a class times that suits your lifestyle and take each modules as it cycles through that time. Because classes do not need to be taken in any particular order, if you miss a class, you can take it at a later stage.
Do classes need to be taken in a particular order?
The coach training programs are divided into courses and each course contains modules and teleclasses associated with the modules. Courses and modules can be taken in any order. We recommend starting with Foundation Coach Course but with the flexible schedule you can start wherever you like.
What if I miss a class?
If you are unable to attend a class / a particular module, simply wait until that modules comes around again in your same class time or choose a different class time where that module is offered. You have between 6 months and 18 months to complete the program depending on which program you choose and this is ample time to complete all modules.
What if I can't complete the classes within the time frame?
We understand that things come up in life which take the focus away from Coach Training such as the birth of children, moving, work challenges, illness and other family commitments. This is why we offer the option to extend your training on a month by month basis for $85 USD per month for as long as you need to complete your training.
The best memories at ICA are the teleclasses. They are full of wonderful conversation and serve as an interactive learning experience.Abigail Wallin

When I took my first teleclass, I was so nervous, anxious and scared but once I did it I was hooked.Wathenia Gabbard

I have never taken a Teleclass, what do I do?
If you have never taken a teleclass before, don't worry. We have a teleclass etiquette guide and the trainers and other students will welcome you in. Below are the main elements of a teleclass you can listen to to get an idea of how they run.
We Welcome All Students
The first 5 minutes of every class is spent connecting with students. Our students dial in from countries all over the world so this is often a very interesting process. Some students call in early, some on time and some a few minutes late.
Coaching Skills Presentation
Each teleclass is connected to a PDF module in the ICA Learnsite. The trainer will incorporate a presentation of the topic in every class. This will not be a repeat of existing material, but rather an interpretation of the concepts and skills presented in the module.
In this class Rob uses an analogy to explain the difference between coaching, consulting and therapy.
Discover, Don't Tell
The ICA program is taught using a discovery approach. The trainer will help the students discover new material for themselves. This does not mean our trainers never "teach", they just don't "lecture" In this clip a student comments on this style of teaching
All our Trainers are practicing coaches, so they come to the classes with real life examples. Things that have worked well with clients and things that have not worked so well.
In this clip Rob talks about the day he decided to let go of his pen and paper with its list of prepared coaching questions, and just trust his instinct to ask the right question at the right time.
Niche Specific Mentoring
We are well known worldwide for the diversity in our Faculty. And this diversity is not just language and cultural, we also have a diverse number of coaching niches represented in our Trainers. In this audio clip Rob Stringer gives students a tip from his professional expertise as a Youth and Family Coach.
All our trainers are professional coaches with years of hands on experience. They also come from a wide variety of backgrounds and industries, with many having run their own coaching practice. The resources they share are valuable and practical and provide a further link between theory and practice.
We actively encourage student to share their personal coaching experiences - why they came to coaching, how they plan to use coaching, challenges and wins. In this clip one of our students shares how she plans to use coaching in her job as a Careers Counsellor at an American College.
