Program Inclusions

  • CORE CURRICULUM

    The core curriculum is grouped into course areas and modules.  For each module there is a downloadable PDF, a live teleclass, and peer discussion via the private community forum. These modules are mapped against ICF Core competencies and will give you the theory, knowledge and tools you need to build your practical expertise.

  • PEER COACHING

    One of the most important components of coach training is applying theory into practice.  With peer coaching you have the chance to try out your new coaching skills and techniques with your peers, and at the same time, accrue hours towards an ACC or PCC credential. Many graduates continue their peer coaching networks long after they graduate.

  • MENTOR COACHING

    Mentor Coaching is where you will develop your unique style as a coach.  You will be both a coach and a client, and participate in role plays, round robin questioning and group feedback.  An experienced coach (PCC) and member of faculty will provide one on one feedback to support you to develop your client management and coaching expertise.

  • OBSERVED COACHING

    By the time you reach Observed Coaching, you are nearing graduation.  It’s a chance to showcase your new coaching skills and increase your coaching mastery.  An expert coach (PCC) and member of faculty will provide you with written feedback and observe you as coaching at PCC level.

  • COACH MASTERMIND

    Referred to by the ICF as ‘Coach Supervision’, this is a platform to share experiences, brainstorm and troubleshoot challenges that might come up for you in your coaching practice.  Led by expert faculty, these are small classes and only available in the Advanced curriculum.

  • BUSINESS BUILDING

    Business Express will kick start your coaching practice with a series of 10 video modules and weekly ‘how to’ classes.  We’ll support you to find your unique coaching identify, create an online presence, get traffic and then convert your leads into paying clients.

  • PORTFOLIO CREATION

    The coaching market is saturated with cookie cutter coaches – learning the same old models (GROW model etc.) and coaching with the same old processes. At ICA we help you to create a coaching model that is unique to you.  This is how you will tell the world, and your future clients, who you are as a coach.

  • GRADUATE YEARBOOK

    Every graduate of ICA is featured in our Graduation yearbook and has the opportunity to have their portfolio published to the ICA blog. This is an amazing opportunity to be promoted as a coach, and share your services with your future clients.

  • PERSONAL SUPPORT

    At ICA we’ll never leave you hanging.  Our support team has been with ICA for over 10 years, so they know our community and our programs inside out.  They are experts in making sure you have what you need and will partner you from the moment you enrol, through until you graduate.
