There are two ways to qualify for the program. The first is to be a Core Essentials or Core Essentials Fast Track. You may enroll as soon as all requirements have been met for these programs.
The second is to be an individual who has a minimum certification of ACC by the ICF or who have completed an ACSTH or Level 1 training program. Our Professional Essentials Transfer (PE-T) is appropriate for individuals who wish to continue their training at Coach U. Transfer students will need to verify their credentials, take an entrance exam ($375 USD), and complete prerequisite coursework.
Once enrolled in the PE, new courses typically start the first week of the following 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, which is a stepping stone to the ICF’s Professional Certified Coach.
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.
