MORE ABOUT THE DIPLOMA
The Professional Coaching Skills Certification and the Advanced Diploma in Coaching are the two ICF-accredited programmes we deliver.
The certification is a 75-hour coach training which gives participants the keys to build a strong foundation of coaching. Participants practice coaching skills they learn in the classroom setting, as well as theories and models that can help them understand their clients better. No previous coaching experience is necessary to join the certification. It allows people to apply to the ICF ACC accreditation via the Level 1 path.
The diploma, on the other hand, is our 150-hour programme. It comprises the certification above, as well as an advanced 75-hour training which focuses on coaching psychology theories like CBT, psychodynamics and Gestalt, as well as advanced practice and supervision. It enables participants to coach at a more advanced level. The diploma allows people to apply to the ICF ACC and PCC accreditations via the Level 2 path. To receive the diploma, you need to successfully complete both the certification and the advanced course.
Both modules of the diploma are delivered in English.
The Advanced Diploma in Coaching is for anyone who wants to develop a solid foundation in coaching with an extensive knowledge in psychological theories and models. Even though most of our participants have prior coaching experience, you do not need to have previously coached in order to join the programme.
The Advanced Diploma in Coaching comprises two modules:
Both modules are 75-hour programmes and include live classes, self-study, and individual mentor coaching.
You need to have completed the certification before the first day of advanced course.
It depends on when you register for module 2. If you want to complete both modules one after the other, it can take 6 to 8 months to complete the diploma (depending on the training dates and your commitment to complete the asynchronous part of the training).
You can skip the first module of the diploma and join module 2 directly if you already completed an ICF-accredited coach training of 60 hours minimum. We accept transfers of credit, which means you may be able to receive your Level 2 accredited diploma. For more information, please contact us by email.
If you haven’t completed an ICF-accredited training, you will need to attend module 1.

Because our approach is centered on the whole person, rather than the problem clients come to coaching for, graduates of the diploma can specialise in many different areas of coaching: life, career, leadership & executive, relationships, confidence, success, well-being, business, etc.
