WHAT IS ICF?
ICF – International Coaching Federation is a leading, global organization dedicated to the coaching profession, with over 30,000 accredited members. ICF accreditations are globally recognized as the gold standard of professional coaching. Coaches who receive ICF accreditation are considered as professionals with experience, integrity and knowledge that follow the high standards set by this organization.
The ICF accredited program is synonymous with quality and comprehensive professional education.
WHAT IS ACSTH?
ACSTH is an acronym for Approved Coach Specific Training Hours, ICF accreditation for training programs, gained through meeting demanding requirements and strict selection.
WHAT DOES MCC STATUS MEAN?
In order for someone to receive the status of Master Certified Coach (MCC), they must have hundreds of hours of professional education and mentoring as well as at least 2500 hours of successfully conducted coaching with a large number of clients. Standards in selection are high and require experience, proof of success and quality work.
WHAT DOES THE CAP PROGRAM LOOK LIKE?
The program is modular and can be attended in two stages:
Phase 1 (65 hours of training):
- online lectures once a week for four months
- supervised independent work
- 100 hours of coaching experience
After completing phase one and gaining a total of 100 hours of experience and mentoring, the student can apply for ACC (Associate Certified Coach) status with the ICF.
Phase 2 (Phase 1 plus additional 65 hours of training)
- online lectures once a week for four months,
- supervised independent work and
- 500 hours of coaching experience
After completing phase two and gaining 100/500 hours of experience and mentoring, in addition to ACC, the student can also reach PCC (Professional Certified Coach) status with ICF.
THE UNIQUENESS OF THE CAP PROGRAM LIES IN THREE DELIVERY METHODS
- Online training, in the form of workshops and demonstration coaching sessions;
- Remote work, in individual rhythm, on a given video and audio material;
- Individualized approach to professional development of students by ICF accredited coaches from the Sinhronia team.
Maximum commitment and an individualized expert approach of the CAP Sinhronia team make it easier to overcome the biggest challenge of coaching education – that program participants, emerging coaches, understand and adopt the role of coach as a professional who, although not giving advice, supports development of client’s potential.
WHEN DOES THE NEXT COACHING SCHOOL BEGIN?
The beginning of the next cycle of education (phase 1) begins on September 22, 2020. and will last 4 months, once a week in the afternoon. The leading coach will be the creator of the CAP program, Brankica Ljamić, PhD MCC
Inspirational and high-quality experience of going through the Sinhronia coaching program and the process of obtaining ICF accreditation. I experienced competence and commitment in transferring the methodology, and the support during the acquisition of the know-how as well-balanced, and therefore I think that CAP brings closer and illuminates the coaching profession in the right way.
