There are two ways to qualify for the program. The first is to have completed Phase 1 - Core Essentials. 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 Phase 2 - Professional Essentials Transfer 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.
Professional Essentials provides 72 hours of training. You will receive a majority of those hours during the intensive days of the Intensive. However, there are also pre- and post-coursework completion requirements, including two practicums and a choice of electives. Thus, we give students up to 6 months to complete the training requirements.
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 Phase 2 - Professioanl Essentials Enrollment Policy prior to enrolling. By enrolling you acknowledge you have read these policies and procedures.
