A stand alone coach training program for those who wish to start their coaching profession journey and/or seek the International Coach Federation (ICF) Associate Certified Coach (ACC) Credential. It is currently in a process of transition to ICF Level 1 Education.


It consist of 72 hours of coach specific training accredited by the ICF, that can be either:


  • Completed with ICF ACSTH Certificate, entitling the student to the ICF ACC ACSTH Credential Path 


  • Continued in the second part of ACTP Intuitive Coach (Intuitive Coach Advance), completed with ICF ACTP certificate and entitling the student to the ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC) ACTP Credential Path 


The program is designed specifically for people who:


  • Seek to compliment their professional career with coaching skills

  • Plan to conduct a private caching practice

  • Are becoming a company internal coach and intend to develop their competence

  • Are completing their management/leadership competences with coaching credentials

  • Are interested in obtaining ICF accreditation at the ACC Associate Accredited Coach level


After completing the Birth of the Coach Program the graduates will be eligible to apply to the ICF for ACC Accreditation in:


  • ASCTH Path or

  • ACTP Path if they continue through the Intuitive Coach Advance Part: exemption from the ICF PCC Performance Evaluation Exam (quickest, least formalities and cheapest for the PCC level).



The Birth of a Coach Program is intended for people with an open heart, who intend to support others in their growth and want to learn coaching competences.  The students will develop a solid foundation to begin a coaching practice in a credible and grounded way. 


The program provides all the formal elements of education required and prepares the student for the ICF internationally renowned coach accreditation at the level of Associate Certified Coach (ACC). 


The curriculum includes a transfer of knowledge, development of practical skills in accordance with the 8 Core Coaching Competencies defined by ICF, as well as creating the approach, orientation and values, which are the qualities of a professional coach and are aligned with the ICF Coach Ethical Code.


The learning philosophy in the Evolution Coaching Academy is to deepen and integrate the competences developed during one module throughout the subsequent modules. The students practice their coaching skills from the very beginning, drawing from the foundation of their already acquired knowledge and skills with the support of the instructor’s observation and comprehensive feedback. We use the proportions: 20% theory, 80% practice exercises, tools, demos, observation and feedback.


During each group module we learn in parallel with four dimensions:


1. Context of coaching - transfer of knowledge, theory, introduction

2. Developing 8 ICF Core Coaching Competences

3. Understanding and deepening elements of the Coaching Process

4. Coach’s Personal Development.


The 72 hours of The Birth of a Coach consists of:


  • 4 modules taking place every two months, in total 8 days of synchronous face-to-face group training

  • 3 one-to-one ‘observed coaching sessions’ for each student (skype)

    • These are student’s coaching sessions with the clients that are audio recorded and evaluated by the instructor, verbally and in writing, in reference to  the 8 ICF Core Coaching Competencies at ICF ACC level.

  • Between the modules the students deepen their skills through practice with their clients, and with one another.  Before the first Module of The Birth of a Coach each student needs to agree with 2 persons to become their ‘coach training clients’ for the duration of the Program.


The Birth of a Coach can be optionally completed with Mentor Coaching process. 


It further develops the student in the ICF 8 Core Coaching Competencies.  10 hours of Mentor Coaching is a requirement for ACC accreditation set by the ICF. 


Mentor Coaching in Evolution Coaching Academy consists of 10 hours of the student’s choice:

  • 7 hours of synchronous face-to-face Mentor Coaching session in a group of max. 10 students and

  • 3 of one-to-one 1h ‘mentor coaching sessions’ for each student


  • 10 hours of one-to-one mentor coaching hours chosen a la carte by the student
