CERTIFYING COACHES INTERNATIONALLY SINCE 2001

Pioneers in E-Learning

More time options and lower tuition - so that our programs remain accessible to anyone living anywhere, wanting to study anytime.

Since it's inception in 2001, ICA has delivered training virtually (e-learning).  As a new student of ICA, you will have immediate access to our secure online learnsite with curated resources, module downloads, class schedules and forum discussions.  It's up to you when you start and how many classes you take each week.  Due to a recent increase in demand, we've scheduled additional classes including morning, afternoon, evening, weekday and weekend classes (across 4 time zones).  We have also adjusted our fees in response to the fluctuating currency conversions (we have students in over 92 countries).  All programs listed below are beginning to end solutions, and are all inclusive - meaning no hidden costs, no unexpected certification hurdles, and full access to our coaching community.  Identify which program best suits your coaching goals with our Program Needs Analysis.

  • Flexibility

    We run over 35 teleclasses a week across 4 timezones to cater for our diverse student body. This is one of the reasons our programs are so popular with Expats and people who move often. The global schedule is also great if you want to combine study with work.
