Advanced Coach Training with Coacharya
Our accredited coach training program (ACTP) comprises three parts: Basic, Advanced and Mastery. The Advanced program prepares learners for ICF’s PCC certification, EMCC’s Senior Practitioner certification and CCE’s Board Certified Coach certification.
This 65 hour program is a continuation of the Basic program. In fact, many of our learners choose to do the Basic and Advanced training in one go (125 hours). This means they bypass the ACC certification and move straight to PCC.
Coacharya programs are delivered by PCC-credentialed mentor coaches. Our training stands out as it effectively blends Eastern spirituality with Western psychology and focuses on individual leadership development in work and life, through the following techniques:
- Creation of self-awareness and mindlessness
- Self and social emotional mastery
- People orientation
- Excellence in communication
- Energy-based coaching
Participants learn to develop their own processes and models, go into deeper experiential learning of coaching competencies, and work on practical business oriented assignments such as coaching models, business models, and marketing approaches.

We’re pleased to offer several program structures, suited to busy professionals:
- Weekly online programs over the course of 6 months, 2-3 hours per session
- Weekly face-to-face programs for 9 – 10 hours/day, over 6 – 12 days, over 3 – 6 months total
- Blended online and face-to-face – these programs usually start as face-to-face and the cohort decides on an online schedule as part of their experience.
50% of session time is spent on interactive discussion of concepts and coaching applications. This happens through trainer instruction, question and answers, discussion on books and videos, coaching role-plays relating to live issues, and discussion of cases. The other half of each session is spent on observed/mentored coaching in pairs and teams (dyads/triads/fishbowl formats).
Some of the Observed Coaching sessions are conducted via live teleclass mode to familiarize students with telephonic/audio coaching. This prepares learners to be effective when working with clients across all media and timezones.
