Who is Eligible to Participate in Coach U's Professional Essentials Program
Coach U’s Professional Essentials Program is EXCLUSIVELY for Coach U Core Essentials Graduates and already-credentialed ICF coaches.
Our approved ICF Accredited Coach Training Program track (ICF ACTP Track) results in attainment of the Certified Graduate designation. Our Professional Essentials Program offers intermediate to advanced courses to refine core coaching competency and develop mastery beyond core coaching competency for those seeking ICF credentialing at the Associate Certified Coach (ACC), Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and Master Certified Coach (MCC) levels.
Core Essentials Program participants learn foundational coaching skills and a variety of proprietary coaching models that can be used with virtually any individual or group. In the Professional Essentials Program, each learner selects their focus market and special interests and builds a unique learning journey to accomplish personal, professional and business development goals. The structure of our Professional Essentials Program is critical for sustainable success; connect weekly, deepen relationships, participate in many practicums, give/receive regular coaching feedback, expand business opportunities and more.
Coaches may make the commitment to coaching excellence at the beginning of their journey by enrolling in both the Core and Professional Essentials Programs, or Core Essentials Graduates may upgrade later into the Professional Essentials Program.
