There are two ways to qualify for the program. The first is to be a Core Essentials or Core Essentials Fast Track graduate, and you may enroll as soon as all graduation requirements have been met for these programs.
The second is to be an ICF credentialed coach already and in good standing. Our Professional Essentials Transfer (PE-T) is appropriate for individuals who have a minimum certification of ACC by the ICF and who wish to continue their training at Coach U. Once enrolled, new courses typically start the first week of the month.
Participants will complete 60 hours of required courses and 12 hours of elective courses. PE participants have up to 15 months to complete all graduation requirements; many finish within 9-12 months depending on how available and motivated they are. Participants generally take 2-4 courses per month (not the same number each month).
Once participants complete all requirements for PE graduation, you will be able to apply to receive your Coach U Certified Graduate award, which is a stepping stone to the ICF’s Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential. Having graduated from both the CE/CEFT and the PE means you have completed a full Accredited Coach Training Program.
All the program materials are included in the price of your registration. They are all offered virtually and offer over 1000 pages of coaching tools, skills and resources.
Please ensure that you read the PE Enrollment Policy prior to enrolling. By enrolling you acknowledge you have read these policies and procedures.
