Coach Academy’s Coach Certification Program

This program is innovative, challenging, and designed to satisfy your coach training needs, no matter where you are in your professional development or career. It’s perfect for experienced professionals who want to add coaching certification to their credentials as well as aspiring coaches who are just starting their coaching business. The extensive supervised coaching practice helps to reinforce the learning deep into “muscle memory.” This program completely satisfies two of the four application requirements for ICF certification: up to 75 hours coach-specific training and 10.5 hours mentor coaching.  In addition, we do everything we can to assist you with the other two requirements: coaching experience hours and a successful recording for your performance evaluation.

After you submit your application to ICF, you must also pass the Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA) to complete the credentialing process. Coach Academy has an impeccable track record of graduates passing this exam with flying colors. We’re confident you will too.

In this highly successful and tightly designed program, all ICF required hours of coach training is delivered in an intensive, focused 8-day experience. A small amount of pre-work is required (reading and short research assignment). Then students are totally immersed in coaching philosophy, skills, and practice, including a deep understanding of the ICF coaching competencies and essential NLP techniques and models.

In an abundance of caution and concern for everyone’s safety, we require all faculty and students be vaccinated. We will ask you to provide proof of vaccination.
