Coach Training Brunei

Global Training With Local Connections

Students living in Brunei 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
  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)

Niche: Executive, Leadership and Expatriate Coach

Maria Isabel Valle is Originally from Spain, She lived in many countries around the world and worked in Executive positions within the hospitality industry. When she and her husband decided to move to South East Asia to work and live as expats, she decided to sign up with ICA. The main reasons why she chose ICA was because it is an ICF accredited coach training school, the program was an online virtual environment that allowed her to complete studies from home (she now live in remote area of the Borneo jungle and had two small children). Professionally, she created her own company, Global Room, where she coach Executives, Leaders and Expatriates for Growth and Success. Living in a small country, in Brunei Darussalam, has not affected or limited her ability to get clients. She have made it her mission to bring awareness about coaching in the country, and have conducted many talks about the subject in schools and other organizations. “There is nothing more rewarding than helping others improve their personal and professional lives, and helping them create the life they want.”

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.

Brunei 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 Brunei.  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.

ICACoach Magalie van Amerongen 
(Expat and Life Coach, BRUNIE)

In this case study, I will describe how Tom got more control over his life, felt less stress and became happier thanks to coaching. However, it turned out that the issue was not about his job, but instead it was himself. At the end of the day, it was not about coaching the issue, but coaching the client. Read more»

ICACoach Maria Isabel Valle
(Executive, Leadership and Expatriate Coaching, BRUNEI)

Most of us have felt victims at one point or another. Perhaps this was due to circumstances that were completely out of our control. Perhaps we knew deep down that we didn’t want to feel as a victim, but didn’t know how to change it. Perhaps we felt that we were born victims and endured past experiences that confirmed our victim status for life.  Read more»

Expat and Life Coach, BRUNIE

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;

"The most memorable moment I had during my training with ICA, was when I was coached last week and 2 two peer coaches coach me one after another. I had a huge ahahahaha moment and once again realised the power of coaching. I have enjoyed my training very much because of the great trainers but also because of the large variety of people!"


Executive, Leadership and Expatriate Coaching, BRUNEI

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;

"Learning with ICA allowed me to become the person I always wanted to be, to do the things I always dreamt about and to live a life I love. Making the decision to leave a successful leadership career to become a coach was a very daunting one, but with ICA I felt right at home from the start and felt that for the first time I "fitted". I would like to thank the amazing team of people at ICA for their encouragement, validation and inspiring support!"
