Coach Training Australia

Global Training With Local Connections

Students living in Australia join our Global Coach Training Programs where they develop strong friendships or networks, and can share local and global perspectives on coaching issues and skills.

ICA started out with a pilot group of 20 students (back in 2000)  and a vision to create a global coaching community, with a certified coach in every city. Fast forward to today, and we now host a vibrant and diverse community of over 5000 coaches living in 92 different countries around the world.  We've created an online training experience that is deeper and more meaningful than a traditional classroom, where students learn via a downloadable curriculum, forum participation and live teleclasses. A training model to fit you as an individual.

17 plus years of ICF Accreditation speaks for our Industry credibility...

International Coach Academy (ICA) has been ICF accredited since 2001.  We chose to accredit with the ICF over local based system (RTO & Cert IV) or other global alternatives (IAC, WABC) for very specific reasons:

  1. The ICF continue to be the most established peak body in coaching worldwide, with 25,000 coaches and chapters in many countries around the world including ICF Australasia.
  2. Coaching is a global profession. Provided they speak the same language, coaches can coach locally or globally.

'A large majority of coach practitioners and managers/leaders using coaching skills agreed that individuals or organizations using coaching expect their coaches to be certified or credentialed.' ICF Global Coaching Study (2016)

Flexibility is the Key

Classes are scheduled so they fit with your lifestyle and not the other way around.  With morning, afternoon and evening classes you can choose when you study.  And, if you miss a class one week, you can make it up at another time that same week or the week following.

Most of the students in our program have ongoing family or work commitments that influence the time they set aside for study. We totally  understand that and for this reason our programs are flexible and designed so that you create the study schedule that fits with your lifestyle.  All learning is delivered via a blend of LIVE teleclasses, forum discussion and self reflection with many opportunities to coach, and be coached.

Australia friendly time options for classes
It's up to you how many or few classes you take each week, with over 30 classes scheduled (Monday to Saturday) with morning, afternoon and evening classes for students living in Australia.  If for some reason you find you need to take a break from your studies, then we have an enrollment variation policy where you can stop the clock on your studies for up to 6 months.

Where We Began...

We started with a pilot group of 20 students. Today we have trained over 4500 coaches from 90 countries around the world.

Like most businesses, International Coach Academy started out as an idea. In 2000 Robyn Logan (CEO and Founder) was running an educational consultancy and training firm, where she went in to large companies and basically helped them sort out the 'people side' of their business. Robyn would regularly conduct 6 - 8 weeks training programs for 20 + employees. After each program she would conduct an evaluation to see the results. Interestingly enough not much had changed. People very quickly feel into old patterns and ways of doing things.

So Robyn introduced what she called "Authentic Learning" at that time, which was in fact coaching...She assigned each participant a "trainer" to meet with them for an hour a week and support them to achieve whatever goals they had coming in to the training. 3 months later Robyn evaluated again - and found amazing results. This then led to an investigation then ended with coaching. Robyn Logan found, and employed a great personal coach, David Wood, and after 3 sessions she knew that this was a fantastic method of bringing about deep sustainable change.

 

At around the same time as Robyn's "coach awakening" she was working with universities and other training institutions to them move current f2f courses online. Robyn had just finished her Masters in Education, specializing in Online Learning and was having a great time exploring the amazing potential the web offered training. It seemed a natural progression to share her new found love of coaching with the world via online training. CoachCampus and International Coach Academy were born.
