Training Program Search Service (TPSS)

ICF does not offer training for becoming a coach. (We do offer professional development for practiced coaches.) As the accrediting body, we cannot recommend any specific training programs.

To ensure quality training, the International Coach Federation (ICF) accredits coach-training programs that meet its high standards. To find ICF-accredited programs, we suggest that you use our Training Program Search Service (TPSS) below. The search for a coach-training program is a highly individual process which depends greatly on your personal preferences and goals. The TPSS is designed to give you basic information about all ICF-accredited programs.


For further information, please contact this training organization rather than the ICF office. The ICF recommends all approved programs equally and cannot recommend one program over another.

Our mission is to provide the highest caliber of coach skills training and a platform for professionals to learn, share and grow in a community that serves both their personal and professional lives.

FCA values include responsibility, integrity, growth, customer service and effective team work.

Program Description: The 125 hour ACTP program delivers 59 class hours with modules covering coach competencies including 11 hours of observed coaching where the students practice coaching competencies and are given feedback. A total of 22 hours of mentor coaching and a further 20 hours of practical coaching opportunities including a performance evaluation session all with a PCC or MCC credentialled coach.
A further 36 hours are for peer coaching as a coach practicing and receiving feedback from other students. Each student is required to complete an oral and written examination together with completing their own coaching styles.
There is also an online community supporting one another on the learning journey. In addition all students receive 36 hours coaching from fellow students when starting the program to understand the impact of coaching and coach someone for 12 hours from outside the academy as part of practical experience in starting up their practice gained during the program.
There is a support system within the student community for those starting the program and want to quickly settle into and benefit most from the training environment.
