Our ICF Accredited Coach Training Programs (ACTP) are delivered annually in The San Francisco Bay Area, California (Burlingame) and in Houston, Texas (Galleria area). Our 30-Hour Organization Coach Training is delivered on-site at your company's location.
Application is available as soon as upcoming ACTP dates are published. We recommend applying as soon as you can so that, if you are accepted, you can complete the enrollment process and secure your seat. Seats are limited and we start filing up fast!
In order to complete an ACTP, at least 125 hours of training must be attended. Our program provides 15 hours more than are required for ICF ACTP credential application so, we give wiggle room. However, we strongly urge full attendance so that you benefit from every moment of the training. We don't provide any makeup hours and all participants are responsible for any time missed. Hours of completion are awarded based on time attended, which is calculated in compliance with the International Coach Federation (ICF) guidelines.
If you complete at least 125 hours of training, 10 hours of mentor coaching, and pass the ACTP performance exam, you will then be able to apply for an ICF credential. That step requires that you have at least 100 hours of logged client experience, pass the ICF Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA) and pay for your ICF application. Once all the above is accomplished and ICF have approved the application, you will be awarded your ICF credential!
Yes. Once you attend any number of hours of the ACTP you will be eligible to receive our Certificate of Completed Hours. If you attend at least 60 hours of the ACTP, complete your 10 hours of mentor coaching, and have logged at least 100 hours of client experience you can apply for an ICF ACC certification via the ACSTH route. Please visit the ICF website for more information on that process.
As a school, we provide:
• Certification of Completion once any number of training hours are completed.
• The ACTP Certificate once the full ACTP has been completed.
• Certificate of Certified Leadership and Executive Coach after completion of our CLEC Program.
• Certificates of CCE's for our Advanced Trainings.
You can legally call yourself a “certified coach” having attained any one of the above types of certification if that is important to you. And at the same time, the public, and most certainly the corporate world, are beginning to understand the difference in the ICF and non-ICF certifications as the profession grows. ICF certification is ultimately going to be the way to gain credibility as well as ensure clients get what they need. You can apply for ICF certification once you have enough training, coaching experience and mentor coaching hours.
Our full ACTP program cohorts comprise of between 19 and 24 participants. We cap the cohorts at 24 people so as to ensure a good instructor to participant ratio and so that individual support is provided. These cohorts are quickly like family, and we find these numbers work nicely.
Our on-site corporate 30-hour trainings have 8 participants or more, and we usually cap them at 24, though we can go up to 38 with additional instructors.
Yes! We have two options for ACTP tuition payment:
1) The pay-up-front-in-full option is set at a discounted package rate.
2) We also offer a payment plan option which comprises of automatic monthly credit card payments on the full tuition price. The first installment secures your seat, and subsequent payments are charged at monthly intervals.
We calculate tuition price based on how many people you would like to attend. Please contact us for details.
