- The application of models and theories from the diverse root disciplines of coaching
- Choice based on best practices, client and coach characteristics and coaching contexts

Do you already have 24 hours of previous ICF accredited coach training hours?
The Evidence-Based Coaching for Organization Leadership Certificate is designed specifically for students or professionals with at least 24 hours of ICF coach training. It offers the same core and in-depth study of a broad range of theories and models of leadership and organizational development as the year-long program but allows you to op-out of one term. The shortened program includes practice in specific coaching skills as well as tools and strategies for working with individuals and teams in organizational contexts. The shorter program exceeds all of the coach education requirements of the International Coach Federation (ICF) for the ACC and PCC certificates with 151 CCE units. Applicants must provide ICF accredited documentation of their previous 24 hours of training at the time of application.
