Steps in the CTEDU Coach Certification Process
1.0 Coach Training is a 6 month course that meets weekly for two hours at a set time. In this course, you’ll gain the training hours you’ll need to fulfill the ICF Associate Certified Coach requirements.
Work with a Practice Client for 10 hours
At about week 5 of your 1.0 training, it’s useful to start working with a practice client to apply the concepts and skills you are gaining in your course.
One of the most rewarding aspects of training is the growth that happens with useful, insightful feedback. Your coach-client overviews are the primary standard you need to pass to earn a CTEDU certification. Your trainers and coach mentor are here to support your growth and success.
Complete Group Mentor Coaching
Your Coach-Client Overviews will provide 3 hours of mentor coaching. Group mentor coaching will add another 7 to meet the 10 hours of mentor coaching needed to become a CTEDU certified coach.
Congratulations! Once you have passed the steps outlined above you’ve earned your associate coach certificate.
