ICA Graduates are confident and accomplished coaches, with their own unique coaching model and niche.

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, with coaches living and working in over 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.

Internationally Accredited Programs

One of the things that makes ICA different from other coach training schools is that we have been International and online since 2001.  We were one of the very first schools to have their online curriculum accredited by the ICF - and this was long before the days of social media as we know it now.  Our programs and community now span over 126 countries around the world, with many students and graduates in Asia.  Programs are available in English or Chinese.

COACH CERTIFICATION live 1

Pathways = Choices

Our programs are accredited with the peak body for coach education; the International Coaching Federation. There are direct pathways between all our programs and students may upgrade at any time without losing time or credit points.

What is Accreditation?

The ICF “accredits” programs via an application process that involves rigorous external scrutiny and quality testing. The program curriculum is mapped across core competencies, with faculty, assessment and learning processes all assessed.

In 2004 ICA was one of the first coach training schools to have an online curriculum and we remain one of the leading accredited providers worldwide.

What are Certification Pathways?

Certification pathways are where one program can lead into another, or where learning credits from partial completion of one program, can be credited to another program.  Because, even the best laid plans, goals, or intentions can change. Your coach education needs to be able to change with you, and with ease.

As an example

You plan to add a coach approach into your workplace and choose a Level 1 program.  But, as you learn more about coaching, you decide to pivot direction and pursue coaching as a stand alone career.  With ICA’s training you can keep moving forward by crediting your level 1 participation or completion towards a Level 2 program.

What are ICF Credential Pathways?

Coach training certification leads to a coaching credential, with credentialing being highly regarded but optional. Too often we are approached by coaches who have completed their coach training only to find that it doesn’t pathway to an ICF credential.  Their choices are limited to not pursing a credential, pursuing a credential via a portfolio pathway (time consuming and expensive), or returning to study and completing Level 1, 2 or 3 training. So, even if you don’t think you will need a credential, keep the option open by pursuing ICF Accredited Training.

Direct Credential Pathway

* Level 1 accredited study (ACSTH) pathways to an ACC credential

* Level 2 accredited study (ACTP) pathways to either an ACC or PCC credential

+ Level 3 accredited study pathways to an MCC credential (but only after completion of a Level 2 program and the achievement of PCC credential)
