Coach Training India

Global Training With Local Connections

Students living in India join our Global Coach Training Programs where they develop strong friendships or networks, and can share local and global perspectives on coaching issues and skills.

ICA started out with a pilot group of 20 students (back in 2000)  and a vision to create a global coaching community, with a certified coach in every city. Fast forward to today, and we now host a vibrant and diverse community of over 5000 coaches living in 92 different countries around the world.  We've created an online training experience that is deeper and more meaningful than a traditional classroom, where students learn via a downloadable curriculum, forum participation and live teleclasses. A training model to fit you as an individual.

17 plus years of ICF Accreditation speaks for our Industry credibility...

International Coach Academy (ICA) has been ICF accredited since 2001.  We chose to accredit with the ICF over local based system (RTO & Cert IV) or other global alternatives (IAC, WABC) for very specific reasons:

  1. The ICF continue to be the most established peak body in coaching worldwide, with 25,000 coaches and chapters in many countries around the world
  2. Coaching is a global profession. Provided they speak the same language, coaches can coach locally or globally.

And, similar to our community, the ICF also have local geographic groups, including an ICF Mumbai Chapter.

'A large majority of coach practitioners and managers/leaders using coaching skills agreed that individuals or organizations using coaching expect their coaches to be certified or credentialed.' ICF Global Coaching Study (2016)

Flexibility is the Key

Classes are scheduled so they fit with your lifestyle and not the other way around.  With morning, afternoon and evening classes you can choose when you study.  And, if you miss a class one week, you can make it up at another time that same week or the week following.

Most of the students in our program have ongoing family or work commitments that influence the time they set aside for study. We totally  understand that and for this reason our programs are flexible and designed so that you create the study schedule that fits with your lifestyle.  All learning is delivered via a blend of LIVE teleclasses, forum discussion and self reflection with many opportunities to coach, and be coached.

India friendly time options for classes
It's up to you how many or few classes you take each week, with over 30 classes scheduled (Monday to Saturday) with morning, afternoon and evening classes for students living in India.  If for some reason you find you need to take a break from your studies, then we have an enrollment variation policy where you can stop the clock on your studies for up to 6 months.

"I plan to establish my own business. I am also open to coaching opportunities in organisations. When I have enough experience and hours I would love to come back to ICA as a trainer to share my experience ! Ultimately I see myself as a Transformational coach. I plan to use my coaching to support Managers and Executives by being their thinking partner and their change agent. I want to be a coach who goes beyond just 'çoaching' the client to be their sounding board and to help them be accountable to themselves so they can achieve success , whatever it might be for them. it would make me very very happy to see that."
