ICA Coach Training Canada

Become a Certified Coach and enjoy lifelong networks and friendships

Clients are Looking for Certified Coaches

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, your own unique coaching model and portfolio, and a coaching certification that is recognised globally.

Take the PROGRAM SELECTION QUIZ to find out which program is best for you.

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 Study Into Coaching (2016)


We have been delivering our coach training via e-learning for over 20 years, and was the first Australian school to have an online curriculum accredited by the ICF (in 2004).

At ICA the term online learning refers to an interactive e-learning methodology and a thriving community of networks and friendships.

The first thing you do when you join our training is spend some time looking around the virtual corridors of ICA - unpacking your learnsite (module downloads, video tutorials, curated resources, class schedules and the ICA Coaches private forum), meet your faculty,meet your peers, and join an orientation call. Then using your graduation checklist you map out a learning schedule, selecting classes that best fit with the times you have set aside to study (options to fast track or take your time).


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 to specialize and showcase your uniqueness is increasing. At ICA you will graduate with the skills to coach anyone, anywhere in the world, but we will also show you how to specialise by helping you to develop your own Coaching Model.

North American coaches use a mix of in-person coaching (51%), audio-video platforms (50%) and telephone (59%) which differs from other regions around the world which tend to have more face to face coaching.
