Which Course is Right for Me?
A quality coach needs to be fascinated by human potential, inspired by individual creativity and solidly committed to holding others creative and resourceful. Great coaches are people who are committed to their clients’ growth and to their own continuous learning. Most people that love coaching others continue toward earning an ICF credential. The International Coach Federation offers three levels of credentials – ACC, PCC and MCC.
The Module 1 – Foundational Coaching Clinic© is designed for those new to coaching and want to learn the basic skills to become a coach in a personal, business or church setting. This course teaches you the basic principles of coaching, with supervised coaching practice, and exposes you to the ICF credentialing process. This course or one similar (16-hours of coach-specific training) is a prerequisite for the QuickTrac Coaching Workshop.
The Module 2 – QuickStep Coaching Practicum© is a 4-week teleclass course focusing on practicing your coaching! It provides an opportunity for individual skill development in using ICF Core Competencies for telephone coaching. Participants interact with coach-specific training from a certified ICF credentialed coach via a telephone conference bridge line. Participants spend most of their time coaching and being coached, and offering feedback and receiving feedback on coaching sessions. The feedback shared with each participant is tempered with an encouragement to good coaching skills.
The Module 3 – QuickTrac Coaching Workshop© is an in-depth 44-hour coach-specific training that picks up where the Foundational Coaching Clinic© leaves off and dives deeper into the skills needed to become a professional coach. Multiple practice sessions each day will increase your confidence and refine your coaching skills.
If you want to become a credentialed coach, all three courses are needed and together satisfy the 60 hours of coach specific training for the ACC (Associate Certified Coach) credential with the ICF.
