Core Essentials Program (CEP) Telecourse

“I am enrolled on the Core Essentials Programme. I am finding it exhilarating and mentally challenging. Challenging is GOOD !! I am making a lot of connections with very interesting people from all over the world. I can study at MY pace, which is very convenient. It’s ALL GOOD !!” Carole Crosby

Coach U and Corporate Coach U’s International Coach Federation’s (ICF) approved Accredited Coach Training Program track (ACTP) starts with our 77-hour Core Essentials Program™. The Core Essentials Program™ offers foundational and intermediate courses to develop core coaching competency at the ICF’s Associate Certified Coach level (ACC), knowledge in developing a coaching business, and personal development for sustainable success in coaching.

These skills are essential for coaches providing individual and/or organisational coaching services. These programs, enhanced with invaluable practice and project labs, have been carefully designed to teach you core coaching skills, deepen your personal foundation and learn practical practice development skills as efficiently and conveniently as possible.

Our 77-hour professional coach training program is for:

  • People who are looking for fundamental core courses in coach training.
  • Coaches looking to blend the Coach U approach with other training programs.
  • Individuals who are interested in developing coaching skills to incorporate into other positions or professions.
  • People who intend to become well-trained and masterful credentialed coaches.

Once all program requirements have been satisfactorily fulfilled, coaches may apply for certification and/or continue on to one or both of Coach U and Corporate Coach U’s advanced programs.

Core Essentials Program™is offered in two formats: either as a distance learning program [the Core Essentials Program™ (CEP)] or as an in-person program [the Core Essentials Fast Track Program™ (CEFTP)].
