Questions to think about when choosing a coach training program
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the most influential and independent accrediting body of the coaching world. iPEC meets or exceeds the requirements for Level 2 accreditation with the International Coach Federation ( ICF)—so you know you're getting the highest-quality training. Not all accredited programs are created equally.
Please click here to review ICF FAQs on their website.
In your coach training journey with iPEC, you have the ability to earn up to 320 ICF-accredited training hours.
The baseline number of training hours an ICF accredited school must offer is only 60 for the entry-level accreditation.
As a comparison, iPEC Coaches receive 160 training hours during their first two certifications (CPC & ELI-MP). Since our coaches certify at the beginning PCC skill Level, once an iPEC Certified Coach has logged 500+ hours of coaching as specified by the ICF, they have everything they need to apply for an ICF PCC Credential.
Additionally, our coaches receive 40 hours of COR.E Dynamics training with their third certification, bringing their total to 200 training contact hours which meets the training requirements for the MCC credential. Once a coach has logged 2500+ hours of coaching as specified by the ICF, and received mentoring from an MCC Credentialed coach, they may submit their application for MCC. An additional 120 contact training hours are optional add-ons available by way of three additional COR.E Dynamics Courses to reach 320 contact Training Hours.
Compare the amount-per-hour value! For each school you’re researching, calculate how much you’ll be paying per hour of training by dividing the total tuition by the number of training hours. Beyond logical calculations, why would you prioritize a school with more training hours? Because it speaks to your integrity. As a coach, you help people make important decisions that have a huge impact on the rest of their lives! To become the best coach possible, you want a school that doesn't just provide some training, but one that provides deeply comprehensive training.
Some programs charge extra for things like textbooks, software, and other course materials. And there are others that require you to hire your own mentor coach, which can cost A LOT more on top of tuition. At iPEC, everything you need in order to become a certified coach is covered in the cost of your tuition! We even provide a mentor coach for your skill development AND a success coach to coach you towards success, whatever that looks like for you.
A coaching certification can enhance any career and can be applied to any industry. Take Human Resources, for example: a certification specifically from iPEC is shown to raise HR salaries by about 28%. For entrepreneurs, iPEC includes free business development training—87% of iPEC students graduate with a paying client! In fact, many students start taking their first paying client after the first training weekend.
Perhaps the most important ROI to consider is how you are transformed through coach training. iPEC’s focus is on helping you transform as a person while learning how to coach, so you’re the best, most fulfilled version of yourself, AND someone people really want to work with and refer their network to because you walk your talk. iPEC even includes a success coach as part of your tuition to help you get the most out of your certification.
At iPEC, you can save money by enrolling early, completing coursework ahead of time, or paying in one lump sum. We also have interest-free monthly payment plans, as well as loan* and tuition assistance options! And since you can start working with clients right after Module I, many students start earning income ASAP. If this is the program for you, we usually have a payment option that fits your unique situation so that you can start changing your life, and the lives of others, as soon as possible.
