UPDATE: The Specialist Certificate in Online Coaching is no longer available. The content is now included in the Intuitive Wellness Coach Specialist Certificate. Please see all of our Coaching courses HERE.
We receive training inquiries from therapists (graduate level) who want to pursue additional training in online coaching. We offer our Certified Cyber Facilitator credential and one area of concentration is Online Coaching. Other areas of concentration are Online Therapy and Online Supervision.
For the Online Therapy specialism one must already have obtained counselor/therapist education sufficient to practice.
For the Online Supervision specialism one must already have taken coursework or certification as a clinical supervisor.
For the Online Coach specialism one must already have a coach certification.
“But wait. I already have a master’s degree in counseling! I still need a coach certification to receive the CCF with a specialism in Online Coaching?”
The answer is yes- because coaching includes fundamental competencies that are a bit different than counseling as well as ethical and legal considerations for therapist-coaches.
If you already have a coach certification you are golden.
If you don’t you can take our coursework leading toward the Certified Professional Coach (CPC) which also qualifies you toward the Board Certified Coach (BCC) through the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE).
We are not an International Coach Federation (ICF) approved school but we work closely with The Institute for Life Coach Training and some of our courses are offered as electives at ILCT so they are your go-to for an ICF approved coaching school.
“But I don’t want to have to take more courses so that I can take your program! Are there any other options?”
And again, the answer is yes. We also work closely with the International Association of Coaching(IAC) and we are an IAC Coaching Masteries™ Authorized Licensee . That means we include the Masteries in our coursework and we have translated the Masteries into a document for online coaching which is part of the coursework in our program.
But here’s the thing. You can become certified as an IAC Masteries Practitioner without taking courses. The requirements are passing a multiple choice test based on the Masteries and then creating a Learning Agreement with the IAC which takes about a year to complete.
We will admit counselors/therapists into our online coaching specialism provided you are working toward the IAC Masteries Practitioner credential simultaneous to your coursework with us.
