Virtual coach training is the easy, flexible and safe option to train towards ICF, EMCC or BCC credentials.
Attending our virtual coach training is like going to a regular classroom – you just dial in via Zoom instead. Each session is a combination of lecture, discussion and peer coaching. We’ve been running virtual programs for years, so you can be confident in our ability to deliver training in an engaging, tested by experience way.
Conferencing tools make it easy to attend class.
Tools like Zoom (which is our prefered one) provide an effective one-on-one interactive experience in which people can see, hear and feel the emotional energy of one another. In addition to the live classroom discussion format, Coacharya’s trainers also utilize virtual breakout rooms for smaller groups and practice coaching. All sessions are recorded on request and shared privately with registered participants.
We have a vibrant virtual coaching community.
We do so much more than just training online. Every week, we host a webinar on a coaching topic. We frequently welcome distinguished guests and alumni to share their experiences and expertise. At least 100 people attend each session with many more who watch live on YouTube.
We also offer peer coaching twice a week so that our learners from all over the world can connect and practice coaching with each other. These sessions count towards coaching logs so this helps our learners gain the required coaching experience for their credential application.
Additionally, our learners participate in regular triads with their peers in their cohorts. They take turns coaching, being coached and observing and giving feedback.
All this takes place via Zoom, connecting our global coaching community.
We’re experienced in running virtual programs.
We’ve trained nearly a thousand coaches to credentials. We’re accredited by ICF, EMCC and CCE, which means our alumni can apply for multiple credentials after completing our program.
All our trainers are skilled in virtual / online facilitation and they too go through annual training and monthly check-ins to ensure the highest quality experience for our learners.
Classes meet weekly with PCC and MCC level trainers
Coacharya’s virtual classes are delivered live by PCC- and MCC-certified coaches with extensive coaching and leadership experience. They fulfill the rigorous conditions of ICF-ACTP certification for ACC, PCC and MCC credentialing, as well as EMCC SP and BCC.
Classes meet weekly, for 3 hours at a time (at the same day and time each week). Training towards ACC takes about 5 months, while training towards PCC lasts about 10 months.
Each session includes reflection, discussion and practice coaching. Learners participate in triad coaching and peer coaching outside of class. Additionally, each learner submits a coaching session recording for written evaluation after every 30 hours of class (so 2 for ACC of 4 if enrolled in PCC training).
Our program content is relevant to all types of coaching.
Coacharya coach training is relevant to all types of coaching, including life, leadership, executive, and business — for both individual and teams. Our content focuses on self-awareness and learning, using coaching competencies as anchors. Our program blends leadership management, psychology, neurology, ontology, OD interventions, and spirituality — with a dedicated focus on coaching competencies. These are structured on scientific principles of adult learner andragogy to evidence learner understanding and practice. Learning is supported with extensive online resources, peer coaching and written and verbal mentoring and feedback on coaching performance.
Steps in the Online Coach Training Program
Our virtual coach training classes meet once a week for 3 hours at a time. That means that training towards ACC will take roughly 5 months to complete while PCC will take about 10 months.
