Become a Certified Coach

An ICF Accredited school with a reputation for excellence,  delivering ICF accredited training online since 2004.

The Benefits of Coaching are Real and Tangible

Becoming a coach is not just a new revenue stream or change of career, it's a new way of being.   Coaching will give you the freedom and flexibility to decide when and where you work, how often you work, and who you work with.  Students who join our coach training come with the goal of certification.  But, they leave with a lot more than that.  They graduate with lifelong networks and friendships, and a new way of approaching their work and life.

And with our programs - you self pace.  With over 30 classes a week to choose from, you get to choose what days and times you study.  Perfect for people with a busy work or family life. 

Pioneers in E-Learning (since 2001)

ICA's training has been online, and accredited by the ICF, since 2001.  Our Learnsite has over 20 years of modules, curated resources and coaching conversations.  Before attending classes you will read a module or watch an instructional video.  Following classes you will reflect on your learning through coaching practicum, course outcomes, forum reflections and portfolio development.

Our coaches are independant, well trained professionals who carve out a unique place for themselves in the global coaching industry.

Our coaches join our programs with one or more of the following coaching goals in mind.

1. Become a Professionally Certified Coach with their own coaching practice
2. Become a Professionally Certified Coach, and work in a corporate setting
3. Blend Coaching skills with their existing career
4. Learn Coaching skills to add value to their life

Our coaches graduate with ready made Coaching Portfolios that showcase their uniqueness

ICF Accredited since 2004 +

International Coach Academy's training has held ACTP, ACSTH and CCE accreditation since 2004. We have been a global school since day one and made the decision to accredit with the ICF over alternatives such as IAC, WABC etc because the International Coach Federation (ICF) were, and continue to be the most established peak body in coaching worldwide.

We Truly Care About Your Success +

Community Support is core to the way we do business. We truly care about our students and support you from the day you enrol right through to your graduation. We appreciate that joining a coach training program is an investment of your time and money, and one you may have considered for a long time.  So, our team of support staff are dedicated to making sure you maximise your return on investment by creating a trouble free, rich and fulfilling learning experience.

Lifelong Networks and Friendships +

Because our training is virtual, you get to build relationships and friendships with like minded coaches from all around the world.  Your not limited by physical location. Our coaching community is rich with diversity, with over 4500 coaches, from 90 different countries. There's a strong sense of camaraderie, with many of our graduates continuing their connections long after they complete their coach training.

Flexible Study Options (Fast Track or Take Your Time) +

At International Coach Academy we aim to make our coach training as flexible as possible. You can study to become a coach whilst you are working or at home looking after your family.  You choose when you learn. Most of us are leading very busy lives, some have families some have full time jobs. Whatever your commitments are, the great thing about our classes is that you can always find a way to fit them into your schedule. And if you miss a class it doesn’t matter, just pick it up the week after.

You Graduate with your own unique Coaching Model +

The coaching market is saturated with cookie cutter coaches - all learning the same old models (GROW model etc.) and then coaching with the same old processes. At ICA we help you to create a coaching model that is unique to you, to the clients you want to coach, and to the coaching products or services you will offer.

Coach Training Schools are like Coaching Services in that they will all offer a degree of 'sameness', but then be different in their quality of service or product, and personality. The majority will (or should) offer Accredited Training, Certification, Credential pathways and some form of learning guarantee. Their tuition fees might also be comparable.  From talking to our community, we've been able to pick out 6 factors that make ICA unique

Our accredited programs have been running via e-learning for over 20 years, with both structured and flexible study options. You will graduate as a Certified Professional Coach, with your own coaching model, access to the FlipIt Coaching Framework and a professional portfolio that showcases your niche, expertise and uniqueness.
