The first step in the Accredited Coach Training Program is to register for and complete the Foundational Course.
All ILCT courses meet the elective requirements for this credential
The Institute for Life Coach Training (ILCT) is approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF) as an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) meaning that all courses offered by ILCT can be utilized to meet the coach training requirements for ICF credentials, as well as CCE requirements once you have become credentialed.
There are two credentials most often pursued from the ICF – the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and the Professional Certified Coach (PCC). You can read more about the ACC here.
Our program is a progression of classes designed to enable a student to develop and forward skills within 80 hours of classes. Students will also be able select more than 30 hours of electives based on their vision of their coaching practice from our wide range of electives.
To graduate from ILCT’s ACTP program, students will complete a total of 130 hours, meeting all of the coach training requirements for the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential, including the courses listed below.
Once the coursework is completed, the final requirement to graduate from ILCT’s ACTP program are the completion of two essays and a final oral exam, conducted by ILCT, allowing students to apply to the ICF for credentialing after meeting other ICF specified criteria. Please visit the ICF website to see the current requirements, which change periodically.
Because ILCT is an ACTP program, students who graduate from our program will not have to complete 10 hours of mentor coaching before applying for their PCC as they will have received mentoring throughout our program and will do their performance evaluation with ILCT faculty instead of having to submit recordings. Completion of the ACTP program takes approximately 1 ½ to 2 years, depending on your schedule and the average tuition for completing the program is $7,800.
ILCT suggests Advanced Topics Colloquial (14 hours) as one of your elective courses, but it is not required.
Currently, no more than 50% of hours can be through self-directed courses and no more than 20% can be in resource development (marketing, assessments, etc).
