Become a Coach

We're a School That Truly Cares About Our Coaches

International Coach Academy (ICA) has been delivering ICF Accredited Coach Training since 2001 and has developed a philosophy and training framework that will equip you with the necessary skill to coach anyone, anywhere in the world. We truly care about our students and support you from the day you enrol right through to your graduation. 

Certification is Vital

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 for formal training and certification is vital.

We have been delivering ICF accredited coach training globally since 2001.  Our students are drawn from many difference cultures and speak multiple languages.

ACTP (Accredited Coach Training Program)
This training is an “all inclusive” training option.  With a minimum of 125 student contact hours, our certified program includes core curriculum,  Mentor Coaching, Observed Coaching, Niche Development labs and peer coaching.  Students who graduate from an ACTP can apply via the ACTP track for ACC or PCC credentials.

ACSTH (Approved Coach Specific Training)
This curriculum has been accredited by the International Coach Federation and is aligned with the core competencies of coaching.  At ICA our Workplace Coach, Essential and Vocational programs have been packed so that they directly suits the needs of those who want to become a coach or add coaching to their existing career, with the option to apply for the credential of ACC via the direct ACSTH track.

Your Coaching Model Will Be About You

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

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.  And, we teach an Integrated Coaching Model, which will be unique to you, and showcase who you will be as a coach.

The Benefits are Real and Tangible

Our training is a proven methodology for creating positive change.  Your coaching expertise will help you, and those around you, to reach peak performance, maximise potential, and develop both personally and professionally.

- Set Goals and Increase Accountability
- Get more done with increased team cohesiveness and productivity
- Lower staff turnover with improved job satisfaction and enjoyment
- Share the load as you equip your teams or colleagues to take on higher levels of responsibility
- Improve productivity through increased motivation and desire to achieve

We'll Support You Along the Way

Community Support is at the core of how we do business at ICA.  Our team are dedicated to making sure you maximise your return on investment by creating a trouble free, learning rich and fulfilling experience. Our student community has over 4000 students who participate daily in the private forums and have a choice of over 35 teleclasses a week in two different languages. It keeps us busy but we love to connect with our community and many of our graduates stay connected long after they graduate.  This speaks volumes to camaraderie and support you can expect.

Which Program is Best for You?

We are often asked this question and it's totally understandable because coach training is an investment of both time and money.  It's important your decision is one that will fit your budget, learning style, plans for coaching and confidence  We suggest anyone joining a coach training program considers the following. 

  • Plans for Coaching How do you plan to use coaching? Did you want to blend coaching with your existing profession? Become a corporate coach? Or, set up your own coaching practice (and need business building guidance)
  • Credentialling All coaches should be certified. But, after that, do you think you will need an ICF credential such as ACC, PCC or MCC? If so, then we highly recommend you choose a program that offers either an ACSTH or ACTP track
  • How Much Time Do You Have? Do you have a deadline in mind for your completion? And, are you the sort of person who likes to take their time, or do you want / need to fast track?
  • Budget Students in Trinidad are able to take advantage of tuition savings. You can either pay in full at time of enrollment (larger saving) or take advanteage of an interest free payment plan (3, 6 or 12 months)
