Would you like to become a genuine and avoid all the hassle and complexity of the standard application process?

You want to demonstrate your quality as a coach and set a clear signal to the market that you stand for an ethical and serious practice? You know that the best way to do that is to be certified by the International Coaching Federation, the “gold standard” for coaches?

However, you have little time and not a lot of energy for complicated credentialing applications, paperwork and bureaucracy.

We understand! Being a quality oriented coach and being an ingenious administrator are not often part of the same personality – coaches tend to be people oriented and not much paper oriented.

SolutionsAcademy is fully accredited with the International Coaching Federation (ACTP) and the International Association of Solution Focused Teaching Institutes. We are working on an accreditation with EMCC. With us, you can:

start your credentialing journey if you do not have previous training and use the simplest track for ICF certification (ACTP)
continue your credentialing journey if you have previous training that we might be able to recognize. You can then also use the ACTP track for certification via our ICF Onboarding classes, Coaching Masterclasses, or Coaching in Organization classes
find easy options for Individual Mentoring, Group Mentoring and Renewal
attend live and engaging classes from anywhere in the world. We have been doing online coach training since 2005! If there are virtual gurus, it’s us!
We offer regular free Coaching Meetup and Exchange sessions:

for participants, alumni, interested people
to give you information and a taste of our programs
to discuss coaching and team coaching cases
to connect and network
