7 Tips for Coach Training School Comparison

With so many options of varying price and quality how does one compare? Here are some practical areas to compare when reviewing coach training schools.
 

 * Cost. Coach training programs range from $397 USD to over $15,000 USD. Try dividing the number of “live” coach training hours into the total cost to get a cost per training hour amount for a basic comparison. We highly recommend World Coach Institute in this regard.
 

 * Payment. Does the school offer payments plans? If you plan to make a one-time payment do they offer discounts for paying upfront?
 

 * Total Hours for the Program. If you plan to obtain your International Coach Federation (ICF) certification you will need to attend a “live” coach training program with a certain number of hours.
 

 * Content. What is actually being taught? Coach training programs that teach core coaching skills such as the ICF Core Competencies & BCC Core Competencies are going to be your best bet. Also, look for programs that teach you coach business building and coach marketing techniques.
 

 * Instructor. Does your Instructor have a lot of coaching experience or are they a teacher just teaching course material for a coach training school? You want an Instructor that has both types of experience: coaching and teaching.
 

 * Length of Time, Hours per Week. How much time per week can you dedicate to your coach training program and does the coach training school offer a program that matches your schedule?
 

 * Method of Coach Training. Does the coach training school offer teleclasses or in-person training? Again, if you plan to obtain your International Coach Federation (ICF) certification you will need to attend a “live” coach training program with a certain number of “live” coach training hours.
