ICA's training has been online 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 graduate as
Professionally Certified Coaches with their own coaching practice
Professionally Certified Coaches who work in a corporate setting
Professionally Certified Coaches who blend coaching with their existing career
Individuals wanting to add value and a coach approach to their life
The first thing you do when you join our training is spend some time looking around the virtual corridors of ICA - unpacking your learnsite, meeting your faculty, meeting your peers, and joining an orientation call. Then using your graduation checklist you map out a learning schedule that best suits your study goals (options to fast track or take your time). All programs include...
Coaching Theory Classes Coaching concepts or skills are introduced, explored and discussed. You will learn a coaching 'mindset' (as opposed to consulting or training).
Practicum Labs The learning is put into practice, with opportunities to take on the role of both coach and client. This includes coaching labs, mentor labs, observed labs, portfolio labs and FlipIt labs.
Peer Coaching Team up with fellow students and practice your coaching skills, in both the role of coach and client. These hours can be counted towards an ICF credential.
Portfolio Development We'll help you identify your ideal client, and then create a coaching model that represents your passion, beliefs, values and purpose.
Classes are held across all time zones, with over 30 classes a week in the Sydney, Eastern Standard Time. There's a set number of classes you need to attend, but you choose the time and days you attend them.
As a coach you not only need to be certified, but you will benefit from being connected to a like minded community of coaches. For this reason, our programs are not just about the theory and the practicum, but about connections and reflection. Our community of coaches has been growing and thriving since 2001 and as a Coach living in Australia, you will connect with coaches not only living locally to you, but living in 92 different countries.
When you graduate from an ICA program, you graduate with a unique coaching portfolio that showcases who you are as a coach, and the problems you will solve. You will have the confidence, skills and knowledge needed to coach anyone anywhere in the world.
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.
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.
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.
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
