ACTP Options for Coaches with ACSTH

Accredited Training for coaches who have completed ACSTH programs and are looking for further development, or the additional training hours to apply for an ACC or PCC via the direct ACTP track.

As a Coach You Will Be a Lifelong Learner

One of the questions our program advisors are often get asked is 'Which Certification is best for me?' We know from over 17 years experience delivering certified training, that there isn't a 'one solution fits all'.  The certification you need will depend on how you plan to use coaching, who your clients will be, how much time you have, and of course, the affordability. And for many coaches, this will change over time as their coaching and profession grows or evolves. For this reason, we offer not only entry programs for coaches, but also the pathways below.

If you have completed at least 30 hours ACSTH training (from ICA, or a similar school) then you can use this as a learning credit to upgrade to our Accredited Coach Training Programs (ACTP's). Coaches who complete an ACTP are have the option of pursuing an ACC or PCC credential via the recommended ACTP track (the most cost and time effective option)

How many hours do you have and need?
