Learning Overview

Program Delivery, Participation, and Graduation

Learnsite Access
Within 24 hours of enrollment, all students are given access to ICA's unique learnsite. This is a timed access of either 6 months, 12 months, or 18 months. This is also the maximum period of time available for the submission of graduation requirements.This includes downloadable modules, live class schedules, assessment, student forum, learning resources and support. All contents of the learnsite are available to you for the period of your program membership.

The exception being graduates of the Advanced program, who have two years to complete their program but then enjoy lifetime access to selected course materials after they graduate.

Program Delivery
All our programs are delivered via a blend of online learning, teleclasses, forum discussion and self reflection.   The learning process is as follows

1. Download and read the course module
2. Dial into a teleclass (facilitated by an ICA Trainer)
3. Post reflections on the forum

Flexible Program Participation
It's up to each student how many or few classes they 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.

Lifetime Access Students who join the Advanced Coach Program enjoy ongoing access after graduation to the ICA Community, downloadable modules and selected classes, resources, and peer coaching.

* Mentor Coaching, Coaching Mastermind and Business Development are unlimited during the 2 year program access but are not included in lifetime access

Program Learning Areas and Student Contact Hours

Core Coach Training

All modules are mapped against ICF competencies and cover the fundamental theories and frameworks of coaching and core skills you needed to get up and running as a successful coach.  This includes ICA's trademarked Power Tools.  Available and taught only at International Coach Academy, this set of distinctions can powerfully shift a perspective, and will be something you find yourself coming back to over and over again.

Peer Coaching

There are two components to the Peer Coaching Course; coaching and being coached. In many ways this is one of the most powerful parts of the program. It is the place where theory meets practice, where you can implement and apply the many skills and tools you will learn.
