All learning is delivered via a blend of LIVE teleclasses, forum discussion and self reflection with many opportunities to coach, and be coached. It's up to you how many or few classes you take each week. The schedules have been timed to allow for self paced study, where the study schedule fits with your lifestyle and not the other way around. The learning process is as follows:
1. Download and read the coach training course module
2. Dial into a teleclass (facilitated by an ICA Trainer)
3. Post reflections on the forum
We run over 35 teleclasses a week across 4 timezones to cater for our diverse student body. This is one of the reasons our programs are so popular with Expats and people who move often. The global schedule is also great if you want to combine study with work.
Our programs are accredited with the International Coach Federation (ICF). so not only do you receive a certificate from us, you are also able to apply for credential with the ICF via the ACTP path (MCC, PC, ACC)
The coaching profession is well developed across many industries and professions around the globe and the need to specialize is increasing. The opportunity for niching is limitless, and we’ve categorised them into 4 key streams.
ICA is host to a private student forum with coaches from over 90 countries around the world. Deepen your learning & network with coaches from all many different industries. Many of our graduates actually form business partnerships with colleagues they connected with in our forum.
Get Your Own Coach
We believe that to be a coach, its important to experience being coached. When you enrol in a program at ICA you get automatic entry to our Peer Coaching Forum. And it is a requirement of the program that you coach for a certain number of hours and be coached. This is just one of the many benefits of coach training with ICA.
We take every chance we get to promote our coaches. Not only do we publish all graduates Power Tools and Coaching Models on our blog, but we also publish a Graduate Yearbook profiling our coaches, their niches and their work.
Mentoring & Supervision
Mentor Coaching and Coach Supervision are increasingly popular for advanced coaches. To really develop your skills to a high level you need to be mentored by experienced qualified coaches, and in order to grow your practice you need a sounding board for client issues and challenges.
Flexible Payment Options
We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to study to change people’s lives so we have a number of flexible payment options to make it affordable for most.
