Your Graduation Checklist

ICA's programs offer flexible attendance within a required structure.  Each program has a set number of hours, tasks and assessment requirements that must be completed and documented prior to graduation, and then submitted at the time of graduation.

Graduation checklists are a requirement of all ICA programs.  They are intended to guide students through their program requirements, assist with the mapping of curriculum changes, and evidence training as required by both ICA and the ICF. 

It is each student's responsibility to download the Graduation Checklist and then use it to track their program progress and completion.  The information recorded must be a current, accurate and true representation of your participation. Your graduation checklist must be available to ICA at all times upon request, and then submitted to ICA as part of the graduation process.   Graduation checklists will be routinely audited by ICA and held on file for a period of 5 years.   

  • You must keep a record of every class you attend

  • You must dial in on the hour and then stay the full hour

Eligible Attendance 

As a Coach Education provider for adults, we expect students to take responsibility for their learning. This includes managing time and schedules, identifying when they are stuck and contacting support, planning and preparing for classes (ie utilizing resources like The Mentor Coaching Journal) and engaging with integrity and honesty For a class or lab to be counted towards program completion, the student must arrive on time, engage in the learning, and stay for the entire duration of the class.  Camera's must be turned on unless authorised otherwise by the trainer.

Repeating Classes

Core Competency

If you need to repeat a class or lab you can, but it must be within your access period and prior to the commencement of your performance evaluation.

Coaching Labs

You can attend as many Coaching Labs as you feel you need prior to the commencement of Observed Coaching. Any attended beyond the program requirement are for self-learning and development.

Mentor Coaching

Students can attend only the number of mentoring sessions included in their program. These must be attended prior to beginning your performance evaluation.

Observed Coaching

Students can attend only the number of observed coaching sessions included in their program.  These must be attended prior to beginning the oral exam.

Missed Classes

We understand students miss classes from time to time and provide flexible options for them to make up a class. The could include.

  • Attending the same class in a different time slot on the schedule

  • Attending a similar class for the same duration (only available for certain class types and must be authorized with Student Support)

Class etiquette

It is our expectation that all students will create a clear space free from noise or distraction and attend Zoom classes with their cameras on. We do understand that life happens and if for any reason a student is not able to meet this requirement, they must let their Trainer know in the chat box.

  • Arrive on the hour (preferably even a few minutes before) and stay for the full duration of the class.
  • Be sure to show your name on the Zoom screen (for example, you cannot show 'zoom person').  
  • Adjust your camera to be eye level
  • Mute your microphone if you're not speaking
  • Try to avoid talking over other participants (use the chat function if you would like to ask a question and someone else is speaking)
  • Refrain from taking screen shots or recording classes (this is a private space)
  • Do not record the classes (this is a private space)

Order for Taking Classes

ICA's training schedule has been designed to fit our students’ lifestyle, and not the other way around. That means that most classes and labs can be taken in ANY order.  The only classes students must register for in advance are Mentor Coaching and Observed Coaching.  All other classes can just be joined as you see them on the schedule.

Theory Classes: Can be taken in any order

Coach Development Labs: Can be taken in any order

Coaching Competency Labs: Can be taken in any order

Coach Observation Labs: Refer to registration requirements in the Learnsite

Pace of Study 

Your program has an assigned number of hours and completion requirements.  Within this you can take your time or you can fast track.   Reading & portfolio work can all be completed anytime (on the couch with a coffee, in your lunchbreak etc). Classes are attended via zoom, as per the schedule. 

Take your time

By taking just 1 class a week, each week, you will complete all requirements within your member period.

Fast Track
If your personal schedule has flexibility, and you are able to attend 2 - 3 classes a week, you can finish within 8 - 12 months.
