Certification is Vital

When coaching was a new profession, it was perfectly acceptable to simply call yourself a coach. But today the coaching profession is well developed across many industries and professions around the globe and the need for formal training and certification is vital.

We have been delivering ICF accredited coach training globally since 2001.  Our students are drawn from many difference cultures and speak multiple languages.

ACTP (Accredited Coach Training Program)
This training is an “all inclusive” training option.  With a minimum of 125 student contact hours, our certified program includes core curriculum,  Mentor Coaching, Observed Coaching, Niche Development labs and peer coaching.  Students who graduate from an ACTP can apply via the ACTP track for ACC or PCC credentials.

ACSTH (Approved Coach Specific Training)
This curriculum has been accredited by the International Coaching Federation and is aligned with the core competencies of coaching.  At ICA our Workplace Coach, Essential and Vocational programs have been packed so that they directly suits the needs of those who want to become a coach or add coaching to their existing career, with the option to apply for the credential of ACC via the direct ACSTH track.

We Teach an Integrated Coaching Model

A coaching model used to coach Yoga students in San Francisco is quite different to the coaching model needed to coach Corporate Clients in Canada

Coaching has roots from a variety of theories and philosophies including adult education, positive psychology and organisational psychology. And it can be found in an increasing number of industries and professions. It is not a singular practice. Consequently it cannot be taught as such. 

At ICA, we like to plan your exit at the beginning.  You will graduate with the confidence, skills and knowledge needed to coach anyone anywhere in the world.  And, we teach an Integrated Coaching Model, which will be unique to you, and showcase who you will be as a coach.

Which Program is Best for You?

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

  • Plans for Coaching How do you plan to use coaching? Did you want to blend coaching with your existing profession? Become a corporate coach? Or, 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 completion? And, are you the sort of person who likes to take their time, or do you want / need to fast track?
  • Budget Students in Trinidad are able to take advantage of tuition savings. You can either pay in full at time of enrollment (larger saving) or take advanteage of an interest free payment plan (3, 6 or 12 months)


Transformational Coach, CANADA

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;"During a laser coaching session, I had the confirmation that I am on the right career path and that in fact I will be good at what I do. On the flip side, it released in me a whole bunch of fear! I had to dig deep in order to embrace and acknowledge the coach that I am today"

Training that is Flexible, Fluid and Structured

Flexibility can sometimes be mistaken as being unstructured.  But, actually, it's quite the opposite at ICA.   As soon as you enrol, we'll set up a time for you to meet with our Community Manager and using the Graduation Checklist, you will map out a Class timetable that best fits with your schedule.  You then have the added support of a peer coach to help you stay on track and be accountable to your goals.  And of course, our support team is always on stand by to answer any questions you have.

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 and it's up to you how many or few classes you take each week. If you miss a class one week, you can take it another week at the same time. And, if you have to travel or relocate geographically, then you just jump to a class schedule that fits with the new time zone.


Business Coach, CANADA

"During the Supervised where each one of us was on a journey of self-discovery and openness to learning. I also truly enjoyed the gifts of acknowledgement that would come when needed after posting comments or assignments on the forum."

Our Coaches Living and Working in Canada Showcase Their Uniqueness

Each coach at ICA creates their own coaching portfolio. This includes a coaching power tool, research paper and unique coaching model. Each coach also graduates with their own coaching niche, with specialisties including Leadership Coaching, Business Coaching, Transformational Coaching,  Systemic Relationship Coaching, Success Coaching, Coaching for Coaches and Life Coaching, and more.

But, the options are endless and we encourage each coach to draw on their previous experience and interests when developing a niche.  Some even choose to blend coaching with their existing profession.
