The Concept and Philosophy Behind the Program

Our most popular program, the ACTP is a robust training designed to develop the coaching skills that will allow the participant to coach any client in any situation.

It includes: 

  • Asynchronous online training (15 hrs)

  • 6 in-person intensive training modules (125 hrs)

  • Mentor coaching (10.5 hrs)

  • Exam process with view to earning an ICF credential

The initial modules of the course teach powerful coaching skills with a combination of lecturettes, drills and skill-building practice. There is also mentoring and feeback during practical coaching exercises, as well as demonstrations of skills and competencies from experienced coaches.


The advanced modules of the course are also designed on the concept of coaching high-level clients through the most common transition points. We focus on engaging individuals, teams, and organizations though basic human system change, effective leadership, and creating strong interpersonal connections; all essential skills for business, life, and executive coaches. The ICF framework, coupled with specific knowledge related to leadership and change creates an engagement approach built on empowerment. The idea is to create coaches who have strong presence and flexibility and who have the skill competencies to support the unique issues related to managers and leaders.

Our Intended Participants

The intended participants for the 6-Module training are people interested in developing or increasing their professional level of competence in coaching, with an interest in coaching business owners, executives and leaders. These can be new coaches, or coaches already working internal to corporations, external coaches or consultants looking to enhance their effectiveness or shift their career direction, as well as experienced coaches who want to further expand their skill levels, become up to date on ICF's core coaching competencies, garner new tools, and/or earn CCE's or ACSTH's for credential application or renewal.

Mentor Coaching

Mentor coaching is a combination of coaching and mentoring provided by a master coach to another coach. Through coaching, giving advice, and sharing experience, the mentor coach assists you with your coaching skills. 10 hours of mentor coaching is part of the ACTP Program and is also required in order to obtain any ICF (International Coach Federation) certification.

The ACTP mentor coaching package (10.5 hrs) is set out in the following way:

• Five 1.5-hr group mentor coaching sessions
• Three 1-hr one-to-one mentor coaching sessions

Mentor Coaching starts after the first module and is taken between modules or after training is complete, depending on your preference.

Mentoring takes place online. One-to-one sessions consist of listening to a 30 minute pre-recorded coaching call with you and your client, then 30 minutes of direct feedback and mentor coaching. The group mentor coaching sessions consist of listening to a 30 minute pre-recorded coaching session with either you or another member of the cohort and a client, then 30 minutes of direct feedback and mentor coaching, and then 30 minutes of group discussion.

The Exam Process

For those enrolled in our ACTP Program, we provide a thorough exam based on direct knowledge of the International Coach Federation (ICF) examination process and skills level expectations.

The exam is taken after the 6 modules and 10 hours of mentor coaching are completed.

The ICF ACTP pathway requires that when Envision Coach Training students take our exam that they pass at an ICF PCC skill level, no matter how many coaching hours are logged.

It is important to note that the training you receive will prepare you for the exam but doesn't guarantee you will pass. It is possible to take the exam more than once.

There are two parts to the exam process as follows:

1) Performance Evaluation: Submission of an audio recording of 30-45 minute coaching session.
3) Transcription: Submission of a word-for-word transcript of the submitted recording.

Recordings must be in mp3, mp4, m4v, mp3, au or WAV format.

Once passing our exam, the credential you will initially receive from ICF will depend on the amount of coaching hours you have logged. You will need 100 for ACC and 500 for PCC level credentials. You will receive a certificate from us that verifies you passed at the PCC level which means that when you acquire enough hours to apply for a PCC with ICF you will not need to take another performance exam.

If you pass our exam, and you don't yet have enough client coaching hours to apply for a credential, don't worry. We don't know of any time limit! Once you have coached for a while and have logged 100 hours of client coaching time you can submit the log to ICF along with your ACTP certificate of completion and your ICF application fee. You will then be required to pass ICF's CKA. Once passing this you will receive your ACC credential.

Full payment for each module is required upon registration and must be received prior to the day the 
module begins. All payments will be in US dollars.


All ACTP participants are asked to commit to the full length of the training. An ACTP completion requires at least 125 hours of training time. Our program provides 140 hours in total, which means there is some room for absence. However, for the sake of your learning and skill level, we strongly urge full attendance. We understand that illness and emergencies happen. If you do have to miss hours because of illness or emergency, you will be encouraged to read the materials from those missed class hours and you may also seek out a ‘study buddy’ from class to share their learnings with you from the missed time. This may help you feel more 'caught up' but will not make up for the number of hours you are absent. Further, we do not allow students to attend later modules containing the sessions missed unless the entire module is paid for again. There is no makeup training. You are entirely responsible for any time you miss and you will be awarded hours of completion based on hours attended calculated by us in compliance with our agreement with the International Coach Federation. Thank you for understanding this important policy.
