Many educational organisations are realizing that the old ways of teaching and learning are not working. The days of the teacher standing in front of the board and "lecturing" are becoming fewer and fewer. Instead our training methodology is one where the learning materials are available BEFORE class with the benefit being that as a student, you can then use the actual class time to deepen your knowledge of the material.

International Coach Academy's coach training is delivered via a combination of the following:

  • Downloadable Modules (introducing the topic and concepts)
  • Video Tutorials (key concepts identified)
  • Live Classes (Teleclasses or Face to Face Classes)

Delivering ICF Accredited Training since 2001

ICA has been delivering coach training globally since 2001 and was the first Australian based school to be accredited by the ICF. We decided to accredit with the ICF for very specific reasons:

- The ICF is the most established peak body in coaching worldwide and have chapters in many countries around the world. The ICF credential is universally recognised.

- Coaching is a global profession and our coaches have clients from all over the world. Provided both parties speak the same language and can learn how to use www.timeanddate.com we believe there is no reason to service only a small local market.

Select The Program That Will Best Suit Your Plans for Coaching

We are often asked 'Which program is best for me?' This is a totally understandable question because coach training is an investment of both time and money and it's important your decision is one that will fit your budget, learning style and plans for coaching.  We suggest anyone joining a coach training program considers the following:

  • Plans for Coaching

    How do you plan to use coaching? Do you want to blend coaching with your existing profession? Do you want to become a corporate coach? Or do you want to set up your own coaching practice (and need business building guidance)

  • Credentialling

    All coaches should be certified. But, after that, do you think you will need an ICF credential such as ACC, PCC or MCC? If so, then we highly recommend you choose a program that offers either an ACSTH or ACTP track

  • How Much Time Do You Have?

    Do you have a deadline in mind for your study completion? Do you want / need to fast track your studies? or are you the sort of person who likes to take their time?

  • Budget

    Are you better to take advantage of an interest free payment plan or save on your tuition with a single payment?

Program Curriculum

  • Coaching Theory, Tools and Knowledge

    This program area covers core coach training skills and knowledge and provides an overview of the various coaching philosophies and models that influence coaching. You will learn what coaching is, and more importantly, what it isn't.

  • Coaching Practicum (Mentor Coaching, Observed Coaching, Stop the Clock Labs)

    It's vital that anyone who practices coaching in a professional setting has had the opportunity to coach with mentor feedback. For this reason the ICF require that students complete Mentor Coaching before applying for an ICF credential. At ICA, your programs include Peer Coaching, Coaching Labs, Observed Coaching and Mentor Coaching. These are an important consideration when selecting which program is best for your plans for coaching.

  • Coaching Portfolio

    One of the things that we focus on at ICA is helping you to create your own unique coaching identity. This showcases who you will be as a coach, and includes points of differentation such as your coaching model, niche, business model etc.

  • Evaluation and Assessment

    Students who graduate from ICA's training have been assessed against industry standards and ICF core competencies, as having the skills and expertise to coach anyone, anywhere in the world.
