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. And, you can't measure quality by price - the cheapest might not be the best, and equally the most expensive program might not be the best. The best program is the one that suits your coaching goals, your learning style, your budget and the time you have available for study. From talking to our community, we've been able to pick out 6 factors that make ICA unique and the reasons why our students chose ICA for their coach training.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
