Coach Academy International and the techniques taught by Mina Brown and Peggy Dean are life changing. I have coached in corporations and ministry for a number of years but not ICF Certified. I was looking for a program that was cost effective, face to face and did not drag out over a long period of time. The teaching process is phenomenal. I took the 8 day intensive course in April 2015, left my current job confidently to work fully immersed in the coaching industry in May. I reached my 100 documented coaching hours requirement in September and passed my ICF exam earlier this week. Thanks to the clear methods used in the course combining NLP and the competencies for ICF requirements I was more than prepared for the exam. No review will do it justice – it must be experienced.
