Our Programs Are Life Changing

Value Packs To Jump Start Your Training

What Are The Different Accreditation Options?

All our coach training programs are accredited with the International Coach Federation (ICF). Coaching is a global profession and the ICF continues to be the most established and globally recognised peak body. Not only do they provide high standards and competencies for coaching and coach training, clients also want to know they are employing someone who has been through a rigorous training and accreditation process.

Accreditation indicates that a school has had their program undergo rigorous external scrutiny and quality testing by a peak body.  The curriculum is mapped across core competencies, with the faculty, assessment and learning processes all assessed.  Program accreditations at International Coach Academy include ACTP, ACSTH and CCE's.

Certification is a globally recognized statement of attainment that indicates you have been assessed by an Accredited Coach Training Provider as having the industry recognized skills and expertise required to practice as a coach.

A credential designates a recognized level of expertise in coaching, as assessed by an industry peak body such as the ICF.  This is represented by designations such as ACC, PCC or MCC.

Coaching Changes Lives...

YOU WILL GET MORE BEACH IN YOUR LIFE

Coaching is not only an extremely rewarding career, it is also extremely portable and flexible. Most of our coaches use the telephone to conduct their coaching sessions and hold meetings with staff and many of our coaches travel frequently.

YOU WILL CHOOSE WHEN AND WHERE YOU WORK

Life is short, and we only get one shot at it so most of us try and spend as much time as we can with the people who matter. As a coach you determine when you work and for how long, so you never have to miss out on important family events again.

YOU WILL EARN MORE MONEY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLES' LIVES

This is the one most people struggle to believe is possible. But we have hundreds of coaches living their own version of a Coaching Lifestyle, making it all very very possible. And you can too.

Why Coaches Choose ICA

ICF Accredited since 2001 +

International Coach Academy's training has held ACTP, ACSTH and CCE accreditation since 2001. We have been a global school since day one and made the decision to accredit with the ICF over alternatives such as IAC, WABC etc because the International Coach Federation (ICF) were, and continue to be the most established peak body in coaching worldwide.

We Truly Care About Your Success +

Community Support is core to the way we do business. We truly care about our students and support you from the day you enrol right through to your graduation. We appreciate that joining a coach training program is an investment of your time and money, and one you may have considered for a long time.  So, our team of support staff are dedicated to making sure you maximise your return on investment by creating a trouble free, rich and fulfilling learning experience.

Lifelong Networks and Friendships +

Because our training is virtual, you get to build relationships and friendships with like minded coaches from all around the world.  Your not limited by physical location. Our coaching community is rich with diversity, with over 4500 coaches, from 90 different countries. There's a strong sense of camaraderie, with many of our graduates continuing their connections long after they complete their coach training.

Flexible Study Options (Fast Track or Take Your Time) +

At International Coach Academy we aim to make our coach training as flexible as possible. You can study to become a coach whilst you are working or at home looking after your family.  You choose when you learn. Most of us are leading very busy lives, some have families some have full time jobs. Whatever your commitments are, the great thing about our classes is that you can always find a way to fit them into your schedule. And if you miss a class it doesn’t matter, just pick it up the week after.

You Graduate with your own unique Coaching Model +

The coaching market is saturated with cookie cutter coaches - all learning the same old models (GROW model etc.) and then coaching with the same old processes. At ICA we help you to create a coaching model that is unique to you, to the clients you want to coach, and to the coaching products or services you will offer.

Coach Training Schools are like Coaching Services in that they will all offer a degree of 'sameness', but then be different in their quality of service or product, and personality. The majority will (or should) offer Accredited Training, Certification, Credential pathways and some form of learning guarantee. Their tuition fees might also be comparable.  From talking to our community, we've been able to pick out 6 factors that make ICA unique
