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 Certified Coach Program is certified as 60 hours of Approved Coach Specific Training Hours by the International Coach Federation (ICF). The full program spans 75 hours of total training which includes the business and marketing components of a successful practice.

The Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) designation is awarded to programs that meet professional standards for coach training programs established by the ICF. Graduation from an ACSTH program will meet the ICF’s requirements for individual coach certification for student contact learning hours for the number of hours of the program. ACSTH approval does not warrant or guarantee the effectiveness of the training or the student’s ability to build a successful coaching practice. The individual applicant must take the ICF’s portfolio exam to obtain their credentials.

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable
