Whether you choose Life Coaching, Transitions Coaching, Executive Coaching, or any of the 10 specialties that iPEC offers, think of your specialty as a bonus to the core content you’ll learn in your 3 training modules and weekly online classes. It’s like the cherry on top of your coach training sundae! And if you don’t know what specialty you’re most interested in, that’s OK! You’ll have access to the content that the other specialties focus on, so you won’t miss out on anything regardless of what you choose. Plus, keep in mind that you’ll have plenty of opportunities to be coached around your decision of what specialty to focus on! The goal when you complete your certification is for you to be able to coach anyone around anything.
You’ll also receive business development training!
Included in your intuition is the option to delve into the business-building side of coaching. If you’d like support in figuring out who you’d most like to work with, how to find clients, how much to charge, and plenty of other facets that new coaches are often eager to explore, you’re going to enjoy diving into our Quickstart program, which begins after Module II of coach training.
So, what happens when you reach the end of your coach training experience at iPEC?
After Module III you’ll have up to a year to turn everything in at one time--your peer coaching logs, mentor coaching log, your self-paced assignments, and so on. While you have a year, you probably won’t need that much time! Most students turn everything in within a month or two of completing Module III.
After submitting everything required you’ll take your oral exam, which involves you coaching another person and getting assessed on how well you did. When you pass, you’ll be a Certified Professional Coach!
All told, when you go through the complete training at iPEC you’ll receive 320 hours of ICF accredited coach training, and be able to earn not just 1, but 3 different certifications. You’ll also receive a library of branded content that you can integrate into your own coaching practice, as well as optional business development training for those students who want to learn the foundations of how to start and grow a coaching business.
