SF Coaching Fundamentals


67 Hour Online International Solution Focused Coach Training (ACSTH / ACPT)

SF Coaching Fundamentals

Two hours weekly for 24 weeks - leading to ACC certification - first part of full ACTP

In this course you will learn the fundamentals of Solution Focused Coaching and the ICF core competencies. It is a highly practical, interactive and live online course (not a boring webinar) in which you will interact with people from all over the globe. The course includes 7 hours group mentoring and 3 hours individual mentoring (which you have to book with your mentor — they are not scheduled in advance). There is also a requirement of 6 hours of self-study reading articles, watching coaching videos etc. on our “moodle” online learning platform and 6 hours of participation in a peer group (via zoom or skype) over the whole course.

This training course is the prerequisite for joining the course  “Solution Focused Coaching in Organizations”. Both courses together make up a full ICF ACTP (Accredited Coach Training Program) of 132 hours coach training. Upon successful completion of “Solution Focused Coaching Fundamentals” and “Solution Focused Coaching in Organizations”, you can apply as ACC or PCC under the ACTP regulations of the ICF. If you complete the 67 hours of this training (SF Coaching Fundamentals), you can apply as ACC under the ACSTH track.

You will also receive a certificate as ” Solution Focused Practitioner” from the International Alliance of Solution Focused Teaching Institutes once you have successfully completed this class and have coached clients for 100 hours.

If you need to miss a class, you can watch the recorded session. We expect you to miss less than 15% of the classes to be able to graduate. If you need to miss more, you can either join another class later (for free) or book individual mentoring hours (at an additional cost) to make up for the time.

The minimum number of participants is 6 (we can arrange for classes for specific groups if you would like), the maximum number is 12.
