Through our online platform, you'll have access to engaging content, interactive learning materials, and expert guidance from seasoned professionals in the field.

    No prerequisites are required to enroll in Coaching Fundamentals! All we ask is that you bring your passion for learning and a genuine commitment to your personal and professional growth. We believe that anyone with the desire to become a coach has the potential to excel in our program.

  • What is the time commitment?
    Coaching Fundamentals offers a comprehensive 8-month program with a total of 64 learning hours. Throughout the program, you will engage in a combination of asynchronous and synchronous learning experiences tailored to accommodate your schedule. During the course, you will have the flexibility to complete a certain number of asynchronous learning hours at your own pace and convenience. These self-paced sessions allow you to delve into the material, explore practical exercises, and deepen your understanding of coaching concepts. In addition to asynchronous learning, there will be a series of scheduled synchronous hours. These interactive sessions will require your attendance at specific dates and times. By participating in these live sessions, you will have the opportunity to engage with instructors and fellow participants, collaborate on case studies, and practice coaching techniques in a supportive environment. By combining asynchronous and synchronous learning elements, Coaching Fundamentals ensures a well-rounded and immersive educational experience that accommodates various learning styles and commitments. This blended approach allows you to balance your learning journey with other personal and professional responsibilities while fostering meaningful interactions with peers and experts in the field.
  • What language is the programme in?
    All content and instruction in Coaching Fundamentals are delivered exclusively in English. If English is not your first language, we understand that you may require additional support to successfully complete the program. We are committed to ensuring your learning experience is effective and fulfilling, and we can provide extra assistance to help you navigate the program. It's important to note that proficiency in spoken, written, and reading English is necessary to fully participate in the Coaching Fundamentals program. Regrettably, this program is not suitable for individuals who do not possess the necessary English language skills.
  • How is the programme delivered?
    The programme is delivered completely online. We use virtual communication tools such as Zoom for synchronous learning. If you do not have a Zoom account, you will need to create one and download the software to your computer/device. We also use a Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver the asynchronous elearning. You will be enrolled in the LMS (price included in the overall programme costs) and provided a username and password upon registration. You will have access to all elearning for a period of 1 year after you have received accreditation, so you can return to any modules and refresh your learning at any time.

  • Why should I pursue coaching accreditation?
    An ICF Credential is a professional certification indicating that you have met specific standards and requirements designed to develop and refine your coaching skills. It is an indication that you are dedicated to upholding strong principles of ethical behavior in coaching.  An ICF Credential shows your clients and peers that you are committed to the coaching industry and to developing yourself as a coaching professional. Holding a credential – especially an ICF Credential – is extremely important to today’s coaching clients. The 2022 Global Consumer Awareness Study found that 85% of coaching clients say it’s important or very important that their coach holds a certification or credential. Earning an ICF Credential provides you with instant credibility and increased visibility to prospective clients. It is crucial to understand that completing Coaching Fundamentals grants you eligibility to apply for Level 1 Accreditation (ACC) with the ICF. However, it is important to note that successful completion of the program does not automatically credential you with the ICF. To become credentialed, you must apply directly to the ICF and cover all application costs and fees independently.
