SF Coaching in Organizations

Would you like to build on your coach training and upgrade to PCC by learning everything you need to be a successful business coach?

You are a coach with at least 60 hours of coach training and are looking for the next step. Maybe you work as an internal coach, as a manager, in HR or you are coaching as part of your business. You might be a trainer, organizational developer, consultant, Agile Coach, leadership coach or mediator. 

As the market is shifting more and more to the recognition of coaching as a profession, you are realizing that you need to keep up and demonstrate to potential clients that you are a serious coach and not one of the “instagram coaches brigade”. The best way of doing that is by getting credentialed with the International Coaching Federation and/or the European Mentoring and Coaching Council. For experienced coaches, the credential of “Professional Certified Coach” and the individual accreditation as EMCC “Senior Practitioner” clearly demonstrate to the market that you are serious, professional and worth your money.

Join us for “Coaching in Organizations”. The course will provide all training and mentoring hours toward PCC (if you have 60 hours of previous coach training which we can recognize) and with our ACTP certificate, your application with the ICF will be a breeze. For EMCC individual accreditation, everything is also included. You will also learn everything you need to know as a professional business coach!

  • Coaching in Organizations offers you an in depth training for Teamcoaching, Leadership Coaching and Conflict Coaching — the most common applications of coaching in business. You will be able to support companies in all of these fields, enlarging your scope, market share and revenue.
  • Coaching in Organizations offers you all the training and mentoring hours needed four your PCC credential under the ACTP track. The only thing we need from you is proof that you have 60 hours coach training comparable to our “Coaching Fundamentals”. Just jot us an email at info@solutionsacademy.com to check eligibility.
  • After the course, once you have fulfilled all the course requirements, we can recommend you to EMCC as a Senior Practitioner and the only thing left to do is pay for EMCC membership and the accreditation.
  • The course runs for 29 weeks, 2 hours a week and is purely online, so very manageable. We start courses 2-3 times a year at different times of the day and days of the weeks, so there will surely be a course that fits your schedule.
  • There is lots of additional material available for your learning and you will be able to practice what you have learned in peer groups as well.
  • After the class, you have access to one of the world’s best marketing-for-coaches programs at half price. Also, there is continuous support by our regular meetups where you can ask anything that may come up in your practice. These meetups are completely free – so if you would like to join to get a feel for us, join us for one of the next ones.
  • You also receive a cool “SolutionsAcademy Certified Organizational Coach” Badge for your social media presence right after the course! No need to wait to share the joy until after your ICF credential.

Testimonial We got to see such a broad range of situations where coaching can be applied! The mix of the group internal / external coaches was really beneficial. We had a really brilliant group!

Two hours weekly for 24 weeks - leading to ICF PCC and EMCC Senior Practitioner certification - second part of full ACTP

Coaching in Organizations builds on SF Coaching Fundamentals (or on any other 60 hour ICF accredited coach training that you have attended and that we can recognize). Together with SF Coaching Fundamentals, this course forms the ICF Accredited Coach Training Program which allows you to gain your PCC credential under the ACTP track and/or the EMCC Senior Practitioner Individual Accreditation. It is a highly practical, interactive and live online course (not a boring webinar) in which you will interact with people from all over the globe. The course includes 7 hours group mentoring and 3 hours individual mentoring (which you have to book with your mentor — they are not scheduled in advance). There is also a requirement of self-study reading articles, watching coaching videos etc. on our “moodle” online learning platform and participation in a peer group (via zoom or skype) over the whole course.

You will also receive a certificate as “Advanced Solution Focused Practitioner” from the International Alliance of Solution Focused Teaching Institutes once you have successfully completed this class and “Solution Focused Coaching Fundamentals” (or any other 50 hour IASTI  “Solution Focused Practitioner” class) and have coached clients for 100 hours.

If you need to miss a class, you can watch the recorded session. We expect you to miss less than 15% of the classes to be able to graduate. For the EMCC individual accreditation, you also have to engage with the self-study material. If you need to miss more, you can either join another class later (for free) or book individual mentoring hours (at an additional cost) to make up for the time.

The minimum number of participants is 6 (we can arrange for classes for specific groups if you would like), the maximum number is 12.
