What Is Coach Training?

What is coach training?

As coaching is currently an unregulated industry, anyone can hang up their shingle and call themselves a “coach” and some do!  It is important, if you are choosing a coach, that you select someone who has been trained by a reputable coach training organisation, preferably with some form of recognised accreditation.  In Australia, coach training organisations can be accredited either through the International Coach Federation www.coachfederation.org or through the Australian Qualifications Framework www.aqf.edu.au.  Similarly if you wish to train as a coach you would be wise to choose a coach training organisation which is accredited through either of these recognised paths.  Coach training specifically provides you with practical skills and relevant knowledge that you will need to work as a competent and ethical coach.
