Learning is a social activity, it happens between PEOPLE

At ICA the term online learning refers to an interactive e-learning methodology and a thriving community of coaching networks and friendships.

All coach training materials (class schedules, module downloads, video tutorials, selected resources, and the ICA Coaches private forum) are hosted in our Learnsite.  A Learnsite that has been online since 2001 and built specifically for ICA’s learning community.

For enrolled students at ICA, there’s no such thing as a missed class (there’s over 30 classes a week to choose from and they rotate).  But, the ‘open classes’ don’t come around as regularly.  So, if you find there isn’t a class shown that works for your schedule, then we invite you to listen to the classes and labs we have recorded.

Sample Class: What is Coaching?

Classes are where a coaching concept is introduced, explained and then explored.  All classes follow the same format.  A format that will become reliable and predictable as you move through your studies, meaning that your focus is on the learning rather than ‘what next’.

In this class, Rob Stringer (trainer) introduces the concept of coaching; what it is, and what it isn’t. Download and read the module for context. 

Sample Lab: ‘Stop the Clock’ Coaching Session

In Coaching Labs our students coach and receive mentor feedback, and our faculty demonstrate the use of the ICF competencies and markers.  In this session, Lorna Poole (PCC) coaches ICA graduate Sarah Hamish-Creek around the possibility of adopting a dog.  It’s a big decision and Sarah’s noticed she’s getting stuck.

The following classes have been opened up from our Level 2 Coach Training Program for those who are considering coach training, and would like to become a Certified Professional Coach.  It's an opportunity to experience our training, learn a new coach skill and meet our community.
