Coach Academy’s Enhanced Coach Certification 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 three application requirements for ICF certification: 69.5 hours coach-specific training and 10.5 hours mentor coaching.  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, 69.5 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.

Coach Academy’s Coach Certification Program is the right learning experience for you, whether you:

  • Want to pursue industry-recognized coaching credentials to enhance your current skills or competitiveness
  • Want to become a professional coach now and have the option to carry it forward as a second career
  • Would like to apply coaching skills in your job, especially if you are a leader or HR/OD professional
  • Are interested in learning more about using NLP to improve your coaching skills
  • Need to obtain additional continuing education hours (CCEUs) for your existing Coach or HR credentials
