Develop ICF’s 11 Core Competencies of a Coach on your journey toward membership or credentialing with the International Coach Federation!
Becoming a Certified Professional Coach (ICF approved / 30 hours / ACSTH) starts with full participation in five 90-minute online classes followed each time by an assignment (two pages written) designed for immediate application of the information from class (anticipate an average of 90 minutes each assignment):
• About Coaching: What it is and is not, Excelling as a Coach.
• Ethics: Code of Ethics and Core Values
• Understanding your Client: Understand different styles of thinking, processing, and deciding, adjust to the client
• Communication: Listening Skills, Assertive Communication, and Effective Questioning
• Focus and Motivation: Learning Styles, Focus, and Language that Motivates
Next is the Group Session for discussion, Q&A, and resource review.
Following the class portion of the program is a coaching practicum to experience coaching hands-on as a coach, being coached, and observing coaching. (Anticipate 3 hours of homework at the half-way point of the practicum.) At the end of the practicum is a case study that creates a review of a coaching relationship.
The ICF has approved this program for 30 hours of ACSTH. The Center for Coaching Certification is also accredited by IACET for 30 hours/3 CEUs (accepted by SHRM, HRCI, ATD, and more), plus accredited by AICI and PMI to offer 30 hours/3 CEUs.
After the Certified Professional Coach program, the next step is the Certified Master Coach program, approved for 35 hours so completing the requirements for membership or the ACC credential.
