Here's Why WE Chose to Align With The ICF...

The International Coach Federation is the leading global organization for coaches, with more than 25,000 members and 12,000 credentialed coaches in more than 100 countries worldwide. ICF is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches

Accreditation indicates that a school has had their program undergo rigorous external scrutiny and quality testing by a peak body.  The curriculum is mapped across core competencies, with the faculty, assessment and learning processes all assessed.  Program accreditations at International Coach Academy include ACTP and ACSTH.

ICA has been around as a school since 2001 and was the first Australian based online school to be accredited by the ICF.  But, our community is global and we now have students in over 92 countries around the world.  We made the decision to accredit with the ICF over our local Australian based system (RTO & Cert IV) and over other global alternatives (IAC, WABC) for very specific reasons:

- The ICF were, and continue to be the most established peak body in coaching worldwide. With chapters in many countries around the world they offer the most “global” service to date.

- Coaching is a global clients from any country in the world. Provided they speak the same language and can learn how to use www.timeanddate.com there is no reason to service only a smaller, local market.


Here's Why YOU Should Align With The ICF...

Clients want to know they are not just employing someone calling themselves a coach, but are in fact employing someone who has been through a rigorous coach training and accreditation process.

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. All coaches who graduate from our accredited training are certified coaches and hold the designation of Certified Professional Coach (CPC). We highly recommend all practicing coaches have a coaching certification.

Credentialing is then the next recognized level of expertise in coaching, as assessed by an industry peak body such as the ICF.  This is optional and is represented by designations such as ACC, PCC or MCC.

Clients are wanting coaches who are certified ...

  • 77% of Coach Practitioners agreed that clients expect them to be certified or credentialed.

  • 83% of consumers who experienced a coaching relationship reported that it was important for coaches to hold a credential.

  • Consumers are more likely to recommend a coach who holds a credential than a coach who does not.

Is Coaching as a Profession a Good Fit for You?

We know for sure that pretty much anyone can become a coach.  But, we have also seen first hand that certain personality types and backgrounds lend themselves more to the coach approach than others.  We've also seen that confidence can be a big barrier  and unnecessarily block the path of those who would make great coaches.

So, we created this Coach Fit Tool so you can assess your coaching fitness.  It's the coaches who PLAN that are the most likely to succeed. Click here to begin your coach fit development plan
