When you begin this step-by-step process, there is no wondering when you will complete the program.

Within six months, you will become a Certified Coach with a growing practice.

No other coach training program prepares you for real-world coaching better than CTA’s Certified Coach Program!

You begin with the Becoming a Coach orientation teleclasses.

In this first session, you discover the inside scoop on what established coaches are doing with great success. Plus, you have those burning questions answered.

The Certified Coach Program is a combination of live teleconferencing, online media, and interactive software downloaded directly to your computer.

You experience: Group Mentoring | Coach the Coach | Self Study | Observation & Critique. All courses are delivered in English.

Upon registration you immediately receive your course software.

Hundreds of coaches have used the Coach Training Accelerator™ to launch and sustain their careers. It is a completely self-contained coach training program we incorporate here as another facet of our unique learning system.

The mentoring group consists of you, your Mentor Coach and your fellow classmates.

Classes are held weekly via teleconference over dedicated, private bridgelines and within our Virtual Classrooms. These instructor led sessions target specific coaching tools, techniques and models.

Throughout the program you will coach, be coached, and observe coaching as it happens.

Members of your mentoring group become your “community of practice.” This is where you learn by example and through practical experience

Enjoy unlimited access to this online private forum designed exclusively for your class.

You’re able to share your progress, questions, challenges and resources with your classmates as well as stay connected outside of class.

“The materials are extremely comprehensive. I have talked with other coaches who are going through other programs and they are amazed at the fact that I already have a business plan, I’m working on a website and I’m already coaching clients.”
Stacye York Sand Spring, OK

“It’s liberating to know I can apply the principles learned without giving up my own creative signature (approach) in the process.”

Blanca Stephens South Huntington, NY

“Overall this course really has everything I was looking for. It is a good blend of handling the business and marketing aspects of coaching along with developing the right skills and tools. Of all the classes and investigation I did this course always came right back on top. “

Loree M. Paulson Lisle, IL

“Knowing I have to face the group each week keeps me motivated to stay on top of assignments and make sure I am prepared. I so look forward to each week’s class because it is a solid hour of positive thinking and feedback.”

Lisa Aker New Milford, CT

“The ‘coach the coach’ sessions and the feedback from those are the heart of the program. Coaching live is where the learning is for me. It builds my confidence and believability.”

Mary Alyce Owens Denver CO

“This is a fantastic program. You guys have all the bases covered. I loved that this program covered everything from learning how to coach to starting your own business and everything in between. No other course that I researched offered all of this.”

Typical Week

Telesessions, 60-90 minutes per week. Total of 30 in-class program hours. 

Self-study and homework, 2 to 5 hours per week. Total self-study and homework program hours – 60 (average).

Self Study

Each week you encounter Action Challenges that move you forward, just when you need them. Our dedication to providing the best of coach training has enabled us to develop “just-in-time” learning models specifically designed for new coaches.

“The part of the course I like the best and that is helping me build my practice the most, so far, is the course software. It is very well done and useful. I like the examples, resources, sample brochures, etc.”

Gail Mason Marietta, GA

Observation and Critique

You hear feedback and recommendations from the Mentor Coach throughout the program. After you complete your certification requirements, at the finish of your training, you receive an honest, formal critique.

“I expected support and encouragement, but not at this high level. It has been very rewarding.”

Ann Backes Grand Rapids MI

The individual applicant must take the ICF’s portfolio exam to obtain their credentials.
