ICA Coach Training - France

Coach Training that focuses on you and recognises your previous learning and experience

Get The Certification Needed to Coach Anyone, Anywhere in the World

Students in France join a global community of coaches living in over 92 different countries, and graduate with an internationally recognised certification.

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, your own unique coaching model and portfolio, and a coaching certification that is recognised globally.

Your learning will includes a combination of Live Zoom Classes, Video Tutorials, Downloadable Modules, Peer Coaching and a Private Coaches Forum.  These are all hosted in our 'online learning centre'. It's up to you how many classes you take each week and how fast (or slow) you move through the program.  The key benefit of this style of training being flexibility.


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

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 to specialize and showcase your uniqueness is increasing.

So, although you will graduate with the skills to coach anyone, anywhere in the world, we also teach you how to specialise.  We will look at your background, how it intersects with coaching and how it can be blended with coaching and then ask you two specific questions;  who do you want to coach?, and how do you want to coach? From this you will create your own niche and coaching model, showcasing your unique strengths, skills and expertise to future employers or clients.



Leadership Coach, FRANCE

"Studying coaching at ICA was a transformational journey for me. I loved the classes and the modules, they gave me a lot of self awareness and unimaginable learnings I applied to my own life. Peercoaching was the best way to start practicing coaching and allowed meeting great friends. OC is also a fantastic experience. During it I realised how giving the right structure to the coaching process is powerful and how the right words and angle could really increase the impact of my questioning. My big thank you to all the teachers and ICA Community! "

Career Coach, FRANCE

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;

"The whole ICA journey was a wonderful, life changing experience for me, but what I appreciated the most was the supervision class where I presented a concrete client case. I was challenged by my peers but also felt a lot of compassion from their side. I went beyond my fears and doubts. It really made me grow and helped to make a shift in my mind. I gained more confidence and I really felt that coaching is my vocation in life."


We don't just teach - we specialise in the application of knowledge.

Just as coaching is all about making deep and sustainable changes, so our learning method is about deep and life long learning. There are still many coach training organizations delivering training in the old way, with the teacher up the front lecturing and the students watching and listening attentively. There is very little time for one on one contact with the lecturer and there is little to no time for reflection. We use an online classroom to give you as much"knowledge" as we can upfront - then we work with you on applying that knowledge to your specific situation.

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. If you miss a class one week, you can take it another week at the same time. And, if you have to travel or relocate geographically, then you just jump to a class schedule that fits with the new time zone.

Each coach at ICA creates their own coaching portfolio and graduates with their own niche - including Leadership Coaching, Business Coaching, Transformational Coaching,  Systemic Relationship Coaching, Success Coaching, Coaching for Coaches and Life Coaching etc
