I Am An AC Grad And I Want MORE!

“The thing I’ve really enjoyed has been the opportunity to continue growing with the community. I have stayed to continue my training and development in the Leadership Development Program, and that’s where I’ve been able to create a sustainable business and a powerful and dynamic style to my coaching” 

– Melanie

So you want to be a certified coach?

The thought of helping people + career independence can be exhilarating… until the what-ifs start to settle in.

What if I am not good at it?

What if I can’t get enough clients?

What if my investment is all for nothing?

Many of our coaches started out with these same fears. After completing the program:

100% say their lives were transformed and
it was worth the investment.

I graduated from Accomplishment Coaching in 2013 and it absolutely went above and beyond my expectations of a coach training experience. I acquired business skills, coaching skills, leadership skills, but most importantly, I really got to change how I saw myself as a leader in the world, and in my own life.

Fast and cheap may be tempting, but 100% of our graduates are glad they chose excellence.

It won't take long for your classmates to feel like family.

The relationships formed during our 12-month programs often last for years to come.

Before you decide...

You deserve transparent answers to all your questions.

The truth is, our program is not the cheapest on the market (nor is it the most expensive). It is priced to include the two critical components needed to build a truly sustainable business: high-quality education and one-on-one support.

With that said, we understand the significance of a tuition investment of any size. We have carefully considered opportunities for tuition reduction, as well as several payment plans to align with your needs and goals. 

Please contact our admissions team for a no-pressure conversation about the program, pricing details, and creative payment solutions.

The following prerequisites are required of students entering the Coaches’ Training Program:

  • The desire to commit to a year-long, challenging program of training and development.
  • The willingness and ability to manage their own health and well-being throughout the program.
  • The willingness to practice “coachability” (i.e. being willing to create a powerful partnership) with their program coach and program leaders.
  • A successful written application and review by a leader of the program.
  • A successful interview with a leader of the program.
  • Must be comfortable reading, writing, speaking, and comprehending conversational and academic English. 

True personal transformation never comes quickly. As personal transformation is a cornerstone of our program, we assign every participant their own coach (included with tuition) so they can apply the ontological approach to all areas of their lives. This way, graduates come into their coaching relationships clear of as many personal biases and filters as possible.

This process takes time. The 12-month window allows time for students to make the coaching practice feel like second nature. And with the fertile environment of support and collaboration to experiment, learn, and grow within, you’ll love every moment of the 12-months.

The Coaches’ Training Program requires 12 2-day, in-person training sessions—one weekend a month for the 12 months.

Between these sessions, participants will work with their coach for an hour each week to maintain momentum. Participants should also expect assignments such as reading, watching movies, and various exercises to help them put the coaching tools and methodologies into practice, develop personal awareness, and build their coaching practice. These exercises between weekend sessions can also include team and partner work with other participants in the program.

Participants can also expect to spend time coaching their own clients and developing their own coaching practice to the extent that they choose.

Our Coaches’ Training Program works from seven foundational cornerstones. We fundamentally believe that:

“Coaches lead, and leaders coach.”™ Leadership is a fundamental part of being a coach. Coaching is a fundamental part of effective leadership. Our coaches know that in coaching another person, they are providing leadership and partnership, and they are clear about the responsibility and humble service that must always be included in this collaborative relationship.

The Being is as important as the doing. That is, action without clarity of purpose, intention, and awareness of one’s Being is insufficient for lasting change. Any meaningful and lasting change incorporates mindfulness (awareness) of one’s own Being and the Being of others along with actions required to produce the desired results.

Working from the future, with awareness of past habits or patterns and present tendencies, is effective in producing breakthrough results. Our focus is to create awareness of the past and present circumstances and beliefs as simply that: from the past and present, not as governing constructs for all that is or is possible. In effect, the client/employee is able to distinguish and choose between past/present constructs or created/future constructs, aware of the consequences of either choice.

Coaches must know how to be successful business people and must develop effective methods of keeping their coaching skills healthy and growing.

Coaches must be responsible, caring professionals who are clear about their own boundaries and the boundaries of the profession. Our coaches are trained in professional ethics and rules of conduct including the ICF’s Ethical Guidelines.

It is the coach’s job to reveal the client/employee’s brilliance. Our coaches are trained to coach free from ego and personal agenda. By remaining outside the client’s context or belief systems, the coach is able to ask powerful questions that support the client to reveal any limits the present context has for the client on what is possible.

Any area where a coach has not addressed his/her challenges or issues in life becomes a blind spot for the coach, and the client is under-served. Our coaches know their strengths and their weaknesses and have worked on their own blind spots to bring to light whatever they have been avoiding in life. While they are not perfect, our work encourages coaches to be “in process” in every area where there is a perceived challenge.

As a graduate of our Coaches’ Training Program, we expect you:

  • can create a thriving, successful coaching business or leadership initiative (as defined by you).
  • have the knowledge and skills to maintain and grow your coaching practice or expand your leadership capabilities within your own environment.
  • are well trained, practiced, and competent to coach individuals in any of the following areas or topics: money, time, relationships, career, business, creative projects, spirituality, well-being, making choices, dealing with breakdowns, commitment, and creating a life according to a designed future.
  • are trained and evaluated to reliably and consistently coach with proficiency in all the International Coaching Federation Core Competencies and within the ICF Ethical Guidelines.
  • are a coaching professional, clear about the ethical, professional, emotional, and physical boundaries of the coaching profession. Also, you are aware of the signs and indicators that a client/employee is in need of a referral to another professional (e.g. human resources, therapist, medical doctor, etc.) and have created resources for those referrals.
  • have made major desired changes in your own life. It is a fundamental tenet of our program that our participants must have applied the power of coaching to their own life objectives as a foundation for being effective with clients/employees.

The program’s measurable objectives for student success include:

  • Generating a score of 70% or greater on all written exams and a passing score on the final oral exams.
  • Achieving the goal of creating a coaching practice and/or fulfilling a leadership objective.
  • Maintaining a coaching business over time and/or expanding leadership in your organization.
  • Producing increased levels of competency in your coaching as evaluated by program coaches and program leaders throughout the program.
  • Producing specific, measurable results with your own clients/employees.
  • Maintaining ethical boundaries.
  • Producing a fundamental breakthrough in your own life and your way of being as a human being and a leader.

Yes! You can register up to two months into the program. We will make sure you have everything you need to catch up.

Watch live before you commit.

There’s no doubt that launching into a season of advanced education and training is a risk to life as you know it. It requires time, energy, and resources that could be used in other ways. We can promise you this, though; life as a coach is as good as you can imagine… and more.

A note from our founder.

After having unprecedented results with my own coaching clients since 1996, I started searching for a complete, experiential coaching program to share with others who had an interest in what I was doing. When I couldn’t find anything that met my standards, I set out to create the finest training program for coaches in the world. More than two decades later, with the help of an incredible team, I believe Accomplishment Coaching is precisely that.

I am still blown away by the lives that are changed by this work, both in the program and in the ripples. I hope you’ll consider joining us on a mission of transformation.
