Showcasing Graduates of 2017

In this yearbook, 127 graduates from 30 different countries share how they plan to use coaching…

When a student graduates from an ICA Coach Training Program they graduate as a unique and powerful coach with peer connections and lifelong friendships that span the world.  Each has their own coaching model, niche or coaching application and will use this to create positive change in themselves or others

Each Coach Graduates With Their Own Unique Coaching Model...

When coaching was a new profession, 10 or 15 years ago, 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 uniqueness is increasing.

With the support of our curriculum and faculty, each student at ICA develops their own unique coaching model, with over 680 unique coaching models already published to our ICA Library. In the ICA yearbooks, our graduates share their niche or coaching application, how they plan to use coaching, and the most memorable moment in their coach training journey.

"Learning with ICA allowed me to become the person I always wanted to be, to do the things I always dreamt about and to live a life I love. Making the decision to leave a successful leadership career to become a coach was a very daunting one, but with ICA I felt right at home from the start and felt that for the first time I "fitted". I would like to thank the amazing team of people at ICA for their encouragement, validation and inspiring support!"

But, above all, realizing that coaching skills are not only applicable in coach-client sessions but also in my daily life and personal development!"

Leadership/Executive Coach, SAUDI ARABIA (KSA)

"All the journey w/ICA was wonderful, full of memorable moments. What stands apart, for me, is the Observed Coaching. It was challenging, empowering & really happening in such a friendly & joyful atmosphere that I was always impatient to attend the next session, grasp more insights, sharpen my skills, & move up to the next level."


Business Coach, KUWAIT

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;

"Being a student with ICA was a great journey. It is not just the knowledge, the skills and the exposure that are great, but it is getting to know more about me as a person, getting to know that all the answers are hidden within us. Interacting with students from different cultures enriched my journey. Being a Coach is a journey & graduation, is just the first step"



Leadership Coach, GHANA

Life Coach, NIGERIA

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;

Business Coach, TUNISIA

testimonial-avatarMy memorable moment;

"Definitely the Observed coaching. I start the observed coaching thinking that it will be like the mentoring but I was surprised, it's totally different. With the methodology of a very effective feedback and rising the bar higher on the coaching process, I do have the feeling that I'm climbing into the coaching valley. Thank you ICA."

Despite being a virtual program, I feel part of a global community."


Career Coach, SINGAPORE

Why Coaches Choose ICA

ICF Accredited since 2001 +

International Coach Academy's training has held ACTP, ACSTH and CCE accreditation since 2001. We have been a global school since day one and made the decision to accredit with the ICF over alternatives such as IAC, WABC etc because the International Coach Federation (ICF) were, and continue to be the most established peak body in coaching worldwide.

We Truly Care About Your Success +

Community Support is core to the way we do business. We truly care about our students and support you from the day you enrol right through to your graduation. We appreciate that joining a coach training program is an investment of your time and money, and one you may have considered for a long time.  So, our team of support staff are dedicated to making sure you maximise your return on investment by creating a trouble free, rich and fulfilling learning experience.

Lifelong Networks and Friendships +

Because our training is virtual, you get to build relationships and friendships with like minded coaches from all around the world.  Your not limited by physical location. Our coaching community is rich with diversity, with over 4500 coaches, from 90 different countries. There's a strong sense of camaraderie, with many of our graduates continuing their connections long after they complete their coach training.

Flexible Study Options (Fast Track or Take Your Time) +

At International Coach Academy we aim to make our coach training as flexible as possible. You can study to become a coach whilst you are working or at home looking after your family.  You choose when you learn. Most of us are leading very busy lives, some have families some have full time jobs. Whatever your commitments are, the great thing about our classes is that you can always find a way to fit them into your schedule. And if you miss a class it doesn’t matter, just pick it up the week after.

You Graduate with your own unique Coaching Model +

The coaching market is saturated with cookie cutter coaches - all learning the same old models (GROW model etc.) and then coaching with the same old processes. At ICA we help you to create a coaching model that is unique to you, to the clients you want to coach, and to the coaching products or services you will offer.

Coach Training Schools are like Coaching Services in that they will all offer a degree of 'sameness', but then be different in their quality of service or product, and personality. The majority will (or should) offer Accredited Training, Certification, Credential pathways and some form of learning guarantee. Their tuition fees might also be comparable.  From talking to our community, we've been able to pick out 6 factors that make ICA unique
