International Study. Local Tuition.

All Inclusive.  Flexible.  Self Paced with Structure.

Pioneers in Online Coach Education (est. 2001)

One of they things that makes ICA different from other coach training schools is that have been International and online since 2001.  We were the very first Australian school to have their online curriculum accredited by the ICF - and this was long before the days of social media as we know it now. Our very first cohort connected internationally via downloadable course materials and live teleconferences for classes.  Fast forward to 2022 and our global reach includes thousands of students and graduates living and studying in 92 different countries. They connect daily via the ICA learnsite and forum, zoom, facebook, wechat  and whatsapp.

Tuition is shown in USD on our website because it is the most widely traded currency. However, students can pay their tuition in CAD, Euro, AUD or GPB with adjusted tuition available in regions where the USD does not convert favorably.

Online Learning = Flexibility, Community & Freedom

  • Never Miss a Class

    Classes run mornings, afternoon, evening and weekends. You are the one that chooses the days and times you attend, with the option to fast track or take your time.  But, our training is more than just attending classes, there’s also guided study, business building and portfolio development that can be completed outside of class time.

  • Learn what you want when you want

    Some of our students choose to start at the beginning and move through to the end, but  if you want to know about Systems Thinking & Coaching, you can also jump straight to that module and come back to the beginning at a later time.

  • Take your program with you when you move

    Our students often travel at short notice; sometimes for work or conferences, sometimes holidays and sometimes country relocation. Our built in deferral system gives 6 months deferral at any time, and our platform can be accessed from any device in any location.

    Our Training Methodology

  • Make business connections and lasting friendships

    Our Coaches Forum has over 62,000 posts from coaches in 90+ countries. The connections and strategic partnerships that are formed in this forum last for life. Our coaches frequently meet up with each other as they travel to different cities around the world.

  • The Drip Feed vs Fire Hose Method

    We call traditional training, where you sit in a room and get fed information and knowledge for a block of days in a row, “fire hose delivery”. There is no way you can remember even half the content. Our approach is “drip feed” the learning, with plenty of time for reflection. We also teach “no single model” to allow you to discover your own unique identity as a coach.

    Our Learning Model

  • Peer Coaching

    With our global Peer Coaching platform you can be connected to the coach who is perfect for you, no matter where in the world they are. Coaching across cultures and experiencing the diversity of coaching styles is in valuable. Peer Coaching is only one part of our Coaching Practicum which also includes Coaching Labs, Observed Coaching and Mentor Coaching.
