Your Coach Training Journey

The word ‘Coacharya’ combines the best characteristics of a Coach, one who inspires a client to maximize potential holistically, with that of the Acharya, a Sanskrit word for a mentor guide who walks with the client without judgment. Our coach training programs reflect our name.

We want to walk alongside you for the entirety of your career as a coach. We provide various levels of executive coach training as well as continuing coach education to support all steps in your coaching journey.

We recognize the many sides of a coaching education. Our coach training programs are a blend of Western methodologies and Eastern philosophies to ensure a balanced participant experience. Our content focuses on mastery level competencies from the beginning to ensure you get the most value for the time you invest with us.

Finally, we’re mindful of the business of coaching. That is why our training addresses the practicalities of entrepreneurship for independent coaches, and supports you with monthly webinars that address challenges you face along the way.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

Coacharya’s Coach Training Programs are a flexible and affordable way to complete your requirements towards coaching certification. They are appropriate for people who want to become business or executive coaches as well as life or personal coaches.

In addition to classroom (online or face-to-face), learners spend two hours of self-study per module, and turn in assignments for trainer and peer review. Participants also engage in peer coaching for a minimum of 100 hours, though this is not required by credentialing bodies.

We offer rolling admission and flexible start dates so that learners can cover coursework on their own schedule. All programs are also offered virtually, online, as well as in multiple locations in person.

Bridge programs are also available for learners who have completed some accredited training or hold coaching credentials.

Coach Training Approach

For all programs, Coacharya seeks to achieve 3 objectives: (1) learning the art of coaching, (2) obtaining credentials, (3) discovering oneself in mindlessness. Learn more about our approach to training.
