Create Positive Change for Yourself and Others
We are constantly grappling with change – changes we want to make happen, changes we have to make, and changes that are happening to us.
This course will introduce you to the concept of reframing a perspective and teach you the skills and knowledge to introduce a coach approach into your life and/or workplace. It includes the ICA Coaching Power tools (created by International Coach Academy).
Program Hours: 18 hrs
Learnsite Access: up to 6 months
Average Completion Time: 3 months
Certificate: Life Design (Coaching Essentials)
Pathway: Graduates can pathway directly into the Workplace, Vocational, Certified, or Advanced Program.
Many of the skills you will learn as a coach are actually life skills and can be used to add value to everyday life. You will learn the difference between coaching and other forms of “helping” such as consulting, mentoring, training, therapy etc. We also teach you the various influences that have created and impacted the development of coaching, and we cover the main skills and attributes required to be a coach. You will learn the power of releasing judgement, identifying your underlying beliefs and the importance of self confidence.
LIFE DESIGN COURSE
Included in Your Coach Training Program
A Coach Approach
Learn and explore the competencies and frameworks that underpin the profession of coaching. Includes
- Foundations of Coaching
- Facilitating Growth
An introduction to the Flipit framework; a process for moving someone from where they are now to where they want to be.
- Reframing Perspectives
- ICA Coaching Power Tools
- FlipIt Framework
The FlipIt Framework is based on the premise that the way we see our world is a choice. The same event can happen to two different people and they will respond in completely different ways. As an example, we can choose to approach a new job or relationship with fear and trepidation, or we can choose to approach it with confidence and curiosity. And that choice will affect the happiness and satisfaction we feel.
What are the course start dates?
ICA offers a rolling program intake, meaning there are always coaching theory and development labs scheduled for newbies. You can start the day you join, with orientations held weekly.
How is the program delivered?
ICA’s e-learning platform was established in 2001 and includes downloadable modules, class schedules, curated resources, and a private forum. Participation includes classes, labs and guided study.
A class is theory based synchronous study where students dial into class via zoom. A trained facilitator (PCC or MCC) facilitates the learning and discussion.
A lab is practicum based synchronous study where students dial into class via zoom. A trained facilitator (PCC or MCC) facilitates the learning and discussion.
Guided study is asynchronous learning where ICA provides the resources and learning materials (module downloads, quiz, worksheets etc) for students to complete in their own time. This includes portfolio and resource development.
Does the Life Design program lead to a credential?
This program leads to further study and is directly credited towards ACSTH and ACTP with ICA. It is only after the further study is completed that a credential would be an option.
Is there a learning guarantee?
Enrollment in a Coach Training program is a commitment to both yourself and International Coach Academy. If after 45 days you have not found value in your learning then you can apply for a refund (less administrative fee) and have your attended classes and labs certified by ICA. Read More

Cutting Edge Instructional Design
The team of instructional designers who developed our learning platform in 2001 were amongst the first group of educators to develop and design online learning in Australia. The advantage this has given us as a school is that many of the teething problems and learning issues associated with online learning have been resolved.
Each program includes a set number of training hours but there's flexibility within the structure. The workplace program can be completed as a 30hr course with 'Workplace Coach' certification. Or, it can be completed as a pathway to the Vocational, Certified or Advanced program. Programs are available in English, Chinese or Italian (or a combination of both).
Our training is designed with adult learners in mind. It is flexible, taught by real world practitioners and aims to provide tangible value. It is also designed to cater to diverse cultural and educational learning styles.
