Life Coach Course Review: Coach Training Alliance

20 April, 2008 | Life Coaching Courses | By: Jack

The Coach Training Alliance life coaching program is available worldwide and is accredited by the IRC. Accreditation is a big plus of course, something you always want to look for. They offer self study as well as teleclasses. I’m not sure if they have an extended one on one mentoring program. Their life coach training program last 55 hours. The school was founded in 2001.

The program at Coach Training Alliance is a short one lasting only 22 weeks. That could be seen as an advantage or disadvantage depending on the type of person you are. A big plus is that they divide their focus between coaching skills, business skills, and marketing skills. Unfortunaately they do not offer refunds.

Their Certified Coach Program includes an instructor lead seminar of 60 to ninety minutes in duration each week. Also included is 1 – 2 hours a week of self study with their special software package called Coach Training Accelerator™. When you complete the program you will be certified as a CTA coach but you will not be a certified ICF coach.

You will work with a coaching group throughout your training and you will also have a mentor coach that will be there to observe and critique the group. Thirty of your 55 hours will be instructor lead sessions with direct observation and something called telegroup monitoring. Honestly I’m not exactly sure what that is. 25 hours will be online sessions and assignments, self study and action challenges (I assume this is some sort of group training exercise. After classes start there are no refunds offered, this is certainly a significant disadvantage. Not only that, there are only partial refunds give before classes even begin. The Coach Training Alliance life coaching course is a relatively fast and inexpensive path through life coaching training. However if you are expecting a more in depth training experience, look elsewhere.

Nice informative article. You discuss too many techniques of coach courses but i can’t understand telegroup monitoring technique. Could you explain something more. Thanks for commenting.
