Coaches Need Certification

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. But the level of certification you need depends on how you plan to use coaching.

Our coaches join our programs with one or more of the following coaching goals in mind.

1. Become a Professionally Certified Coach with their own coaching practice

2. Become a Professionally Certified Coach, and work in a corporate setting

3. Blend Coaching skills with their existing career

4. Learn Coaching skills to add value to their life

* The certification path you follow should match your coaching goals, and at ICA you can either follow a packaged training option, or design your own.

INTRODUCTION TO COACHING (Level 2)

Many of the skills you will learn as a coach are actually life skills. For example, let’s take Creating Awareness. This is a core skill for coaches. You need to be able to support your clients to create awareness and help them to identify what is actually going on for them under the surface of their ‘story’. But this skill, self-awareness, is also extremely useful in many aspects of life (with your children, in your relationship/s, in the workplace, etc.).

ICF Credential Pathways

Not all coaches need or want an ICF Credential,  but we would highly recommend that all coaches become certified.  So, what is the difference?

Upon completion of your studies with ICA you will receive a Certification. In the case of coach training, certification is a globally recognized statement of attainment that indicates you have been assessed by an Accredited Coach Training Provider as having the industry recognized skills and expertise required to practice as a coach.

This option is for those who want to take their coaching to the next level.  An credential designates a recognized level of expertise in coaching, as assessed by an industry peak body.  ICA's Training leads to the ICF industry credentials of ACC, PCC or MCC.

Your Class Schedule

Classes are scheduled so they fit with your lifestyle and not the other way around.  With morning, afternoon and evening classes you can choose when you study.  And, if you miss a class one week, you can make it up at another time that same week or the week following.

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.  All learning is delivered via a blend of LIVE teleclasses, forum discussion and self reflection with many opportunities to coach, and be coached.

Time options for classes to suite each time zone
It's up to you how many or few classes you take each week, with over 30 classes scheduled (Monday to Saturday) with morning, afternoon and evening classes.  If for some reason you find you need to take a break from your studies, then we have an enrollment variation policy where you can stop the clock on your studies for up to 6 months.
