What’s at risk in choosing the wrong Coach Training?

We recognize it’s a big decision to choose the right program to invest in for your future.

Why Coaching Accreditation matters.

The best thing about undertaking certified coach training is that it keeps you ahead of competitors.
Compared to other coaches without certification, you will look more credible to a client. Not to mention, that holding an industry-recognised certification, such as an ICF Certification (International Coach Federation), can help you grow your skills, knowledge, and proficiency — even if you’ve been in the industry for years.

More and more Corporates, companies and Government are now requiring accreditation for their coaches knowing that the person has attained a combination of accredited training, coaching hours, and assessment and compliance for standards of practice.

What’s Involved in the Accreditation Process?

Accredited coach training program (ACTP) accreditation means the training program is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). ACTP accredited programs are considered “all inclusive” training programs, which offer start to finish coach training. A minimum of 125 student contact hours, mentor coaching and a performance evaluation process are required for ACTP approval. Graduates of an ACTP program may apply for an individual ICF credential via the ACTP credential application path. Additionally, once your training is completed, you can progress to ICF Coach Credentials

What’s the difference between ACC, PCC and MCC?

Whether you get an Associate Certified Coach (ACC), Professional Certified Coach (PCC), or Master Certified Coach (MCC) all will signify that you’ve gone through a specific number of hours of coach-specific training from an International Coaching Federation-accredited program.


What is the AQF Framework?

A great way to check the quality of the training or course you choose is to see if it’s part of the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF). Introduced in 1995, the AQF is responsible for the national system of qualifications in Australia. The AQF is managed by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills, and Employment. 

All AQF qualifications are quality assured through the Australian Government’s accreditation process. You can identify these qualifications by the simple inclusion of the AQF logo, or the following words: This qualification is recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework. AQF certification gives you peace of mind knowing that you have a nationally recognised qualification.

Our Certificate IV and Diploma courses are Nationally recognised Training Programs delivering vocational qualifications and credentials recognised across Australia.

Only Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) can deliver nationally recognised training and issue nationally recognised qualifications or statements of attainment.

What’s the Importance of Nationally Recognised Training?

When you receive a Nationally Recognised Training you can be confident that your qualifications are of the highest quality and will be recognised by industry and other registered training organisations in every state of Australia.

How do you prefer to learn?

There are some qualifications than you can achieve through 100% self-paced online study. However, the skills required to become a great coach require face-to-face or online ‘live’ webinars to learn the art of coaching.

Coaching requires the art of learning listening skills, building rapport, understanding both verbal and non-verbal communication and more. It requires ‘Learning what to do’ and then ‘Doing what you Learn’. This can only be achieved in ‘Live’ training.

Our Certificate IV and Diploma online programs offer a combination of facilitator led webinars on video-based platforms (such as zoom) and self-paced learning by utilising our advanced online student portal.

Each of our programs is limited to a maximum of 10 people, so you can be assured of a small group and more personalised program. So yes, you do get one-to-one feedback throughout the program, and in fact it is a requirement of all ICF accredited courses.

Is There Much ‘Homework’?

What’s more, the program is designed to do the majority of your work in-class and it is up to you how much additional reading, listening to podcasts and practising with your peers you do.

How long can I access the course material?

Yes, you get access to our Online Coach Training Portal for the duration of your course, in fact for up to 2 years.

The Online Learning Portal provides:

  • A recording of every Webinar, so you won’t miss any learning if something was to prevent you from attending a particular Webinar.
  • Full explanation of all the requirements for completion of the course, step by step, in both written and video formats.
  • Additional resources including Coaching Demonstrations and additional reading and learning resources.
  • A fully secure private learning portal
  • The ability to upload any required assessment materials.

Your clients deserve you to be the best Coach. What are your options?
