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

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

The important of coaching accreditation

Investing in accredited coach training offers a distinct advantage, positioning you as a frontrunner in your field. Certified coaches hold a competitive edge over their non-certified counterparts, instilling trust and credibility in potential clients. With credentials such as an ICF Certification (International Coach Federation), you not only demonstrate your commitment to excellence but also continually enhance your expertise, regardless of your tenure in the industry.

Today, accreditation is increasingly becoming a prerequisite for coaches in various sectors, including corporate, governmental, and organisational settings. Organisations recognise that accredited coaches have undergone rigorous training, accumulated coaching hours, and met stringent standards, ensuring proficiency and adherence to best practices. Elevate your professional standing and expand your opportunities by obtaining reputable accreditation.

Coach Education and ICF Accreditation at FIRE UP Coaching

Unlock your potential with our accredited Level 2 ACTP training program. At FIRE UP Coaching, we’re committed to providing you with the education hours, mentor coaching, and performance evaluation needed to obtain an ICF ACC or PCC Credential, tailored to the course you choose with us.

With our ACTP path, achieving accreditation is seamless. Simply submit your program certificate and coaching experience hours with your credential application, and you’re on your way to recognition.

For those opting for non-ACTP training you’ll need to submit robust documentation to ensure your education meets ICF standards. You will then need to undertake additional mentor coaching and recording coaching sessions in preparation for a performance evaluation, all of which will be meticulously verified and included in your credential application, alongside your program certificate(s) and coaching experience hours.

Both ACTP and non-ACTP paths culminate in an ICF exam, solidifying your accreditation and setting you on the path to success.

Should you have undertaken your training elsewhere and need mentor coaching hours please reach out to FIRE UP Coaching, as we provide this service.

What is the AQF Framework?

One crucial aspect to consider when evaluating the quality of training is whether it aligns with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Established in 1995, the AQF serves as the national framework for qualifications in Australia and is overseen by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills, and Employment.

AQF qualifications undergo rigorous quality assurance through the Australian Government’s accreditation process. Look for the AQF logo or the statement “This qualification is recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework” to ensure national recognition and peace of mind.

Our Certificate IV and Diploma courses are part of nationally recognised training programs, offering vocational qualifications and credentials acknowledged across Australia.

It’s worth noting that only Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) have the authority to deliver nationally recognised training and issue qualifications or statements of attainment.

Why Opt for Nationally Recognised Training?

Choosing nationally recognised training ensures the highest quality qualifications that are universally acknowledged by industry and registered training organisations nationwide. With nationally recognised training, you can be confident in the credibility and portability of your qualifications across all states of Australia.

How are the Certificate IV and Diploma Programs Structured?

While certain qualifications, such as our Mindset courses, can be completed entirely through self-paced online study, the nuanced skills essential for coaching excellence necessitate a blend of face-to-face (online) live webinars.

Coaching mastery involves mastering listening skills, building rapport, decoding verbal and non-verbal cues, and more. It’s about not only learning but also actively applying acquired knowledge—a process best facilitated through interactive live training sessions.

Our Certificate IV and Diploma online programs seamlessly integrate facilitator-led webinars conducted on video-based platforms like Zoom, alongside self-paced learning via our sophisticated online student portal.

With a maximum of 12 participants per program, you’re guaranteed a small, intimate group setting conducive to personalised learning—a hallmark of our approach and a prerequisite for all ICF accredited courses.

What About Assignments?

Our Certificate IV in Business and Personal Coaching is structured to ensure the bulk (but not all) of your coursework is completed during class sessions.

Additional reading, podcast listening, and peer practice sessions are encouraged but entirely optional, allowing you to tailor your learning experience to suit your preferences and schedule.
