Membership
As soon as you join ICA you become a member of our supportive and diverse learning community.  Our members live in over 126 countries around the world and include students, graduates, faculty and our amazing support and administrative team. 


Program Access 
Every ICA program has an access period.  This is the maximum time frame you have to complete your studies. Some students need their entire time frame to complete all classes, labs, portfolio work and assessments.  Other students fast track and finish sooner.  

Program Hours
All programs includes an assigned number of learning hours; including classes, labs, modules, forum participation and peer coaching.  These are attended and completed prior to graduation (not after).  Whilst it is intended that classes and labs are taken only once (as per the program allocation) there is some flexibility. The following applies: 


  • Core Classes
    If you need to repeat a class you can, but it must be within your access period and prior to the commencement of your performance evaluation. 
  • Competency Labs 
    If you need to repeat a class you can, but it must be within your access period and prior to the commencement of your performance evaluation. 
  • Coach Development Labs 
    You can attend as many coach development labs as you need to prepare you for your performance evaluation.  
      
  • Mentor Coaching Labs
    There is a minimum and maximum number of labs that can be attended.  Registration is required. These must be attended prior to beginning your performance evaluation.  
  • Observed Coaching
    There is a minimum and maximum number of labs that can be attended.  Registration is required. These must be attended prior to beginning your oral exam and must be done before your oral exam. 

Program Completion
 As soon as your performance evaluation is complete, you are considered to have completed your studies and will apply for graduation. 

Alumni
ICA offers an alumni program for ICA graduates - this is currently free of charge for 12 months.  This is only available to graduates and offers a learning space where you can continue with your coach development. The classes and labs offered in the alumni will vary.
