ICA Coach Training - Germany

Coach Training that focuses on you and recognises your previous learning and experience

Get The Certification Needed to Coach Anyone, Anywhere in the World

Students in Germany join a global community of coaches living in over 92 different countries, and graduate with an internationally recognised certification.

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.

Your learning will includes a combination of Live Zoom Classes, Video Tutorials, Downloadable Modules, Peer Coaching and a Private Coaches Forum.  These are all hosted in our 'online learning centre'. It's up to you how many classes you take each week and how fast (or slow) you move through the program.  The key benefit of this style of training being flexibility.


A coaching model used to coach yoga students in San Francisco is quite different to the coaching model needed to coach Corporate Clients in Germany.

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.

So, although you will graduate with the skills to coach anyone, anywhere in the world, we also teach you how to specialise.  We will look at your background, how it intersects with coaching and how it can be blended with coaching and then ask you two specific questions;  who do you want to coach?, and how do you want to coach? From this you will create your own niche and coaching model, showcasing your unique strengths, skills and expertise to future employers or clients.

"Each of the facilitators shared some experience, tool or exercise that has turned out to be meaningful and practical for me. I'll always remember one trainer starting off many classes with the question "What's making you smile today?" Wonderful way to bring joy and lightness into my day!"

We don't just teach - we specialise in the application of knowledge.

Just as coaching is all about making deep and sustainable changes, so our learning method is about deep and life long learning. There are still many coach training organizations delivering training in the old way, with the teacher up the front lecturing and the students watching and listening attentively. There is very little time for one on one contact with the lecturer and there is little to no time for reflection. We use an online classroom to give you as much"knowledge" as we can upfront - then we work with you on applying that knowledge to your specific situation.

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. 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.

Each coach at ICA creates their own coaching portfolio and graduates with their own niche - including Leadership Coaching, Business Coaching, Transformational Coaching,  Systemic Relationship Coaching, Success Coaching, Coaching for Coaches and Life Coaching etc

ICACoach Stephen Miller Power Tool
(Executive Coach, GERMANY)

Many years ago I ran across the Greek word arete (ἀρετή). It struck a chord with me, so I made a note of it for future use. When it came time for me to further develop my coaching and training business, I knew that word had to be part of practice. Read more»

When we identify with an externally given attribute, position, or status, we may become attached to it - by claiming exclusivity, and thereby distinguishing ‘my’ from ‘your’ position. Read more»
