What is the difference between Corporate Coach U and Coach U ?

All students begin their training with The Core Essentials Program (CEP), which gives students a basic foundation in coaching principles, ethics, skills, and practice development. After completing the CEP, you may upgrade into one of our two advanced programs listed below:

Corporate Coach U - The Advanced Corporate Coaching Program (ACCP)

 If you wish to become a Corporate Coach, the ACCP will help you refine your coaching skills and adapt them to a specific environment – the corporation or other organization.  The Advanced Corporate Coaching Program has a focus on taking a coach approach while using business language in corporate situations with individuals, teams or organizations.  ACCP students hae up to 3 years from the date of enrollment to complete the program.

Coach U - The Advanced Coaching Program (ACP)  

If you want to become a professional Coach – or just develop exceptional coaching skills – The ACP will help you develop and refine your coaching skills. This comprehensive and effective training program focuses on, personal development (for you and your coachees), working with different types of coaches, and building your own coaching practice.  ACP students have up to 3 years from the date of enrollment to complete the program. 

We invite you to view the Coach U and the Corporate Coach U sections of our website and register for one of our Question and Answer TeleClasses® for Coach U and Corporate Coach U . Please feel free to ask any question you may have, or learn from what others are asking. This will help you understand the distinction between Coach U and Corporate Coach U.

What makes Corporate Coach U's program different from others?

Here are just a few things that set us apart from other coaching training companies:

  • The Advanced Corporate Coaching Program is the prerequisite for the Corporate Coach U Certified Graduate (CCUCG). The CCUCG is currently the only ICF accredited corporate business coach training program.
  • We have been training and preparing corporate coaches for graduation and certification for over 5 years.
  • We use the most up-to-date materials in the industry, and John Wiley & Sons, a world wide publisher, has published our curriculum in three volumes: The Coach U Personal And Corporate Coach Training Handbook, The Coach U Personal Development Workbook and Guide and The Essential Coaching Tools.
  • The virtual nature of our training is very convenient. No travel is required and the TeleClass® format provides unique perspectives and discussions from students who reside all over the world.
  • The Corporate Coach U community of students and coaches is filled with professionals who are all learning from and sharing with one another.
  • Corporate Coach U Students have the option of life long learning. By purchasing the Life Long Learning option students are free to re-take classes for as long as they like. And, if new curriculum is added to the program you can take that for no extra charge as well.
  • When enrolled in Corporate Coach U, the Faculty members are there to facilitate the learning experience. Our Faculty members are available to students via email between sessions. In some classes, you will be partnered with a fellow student to practice skills to give you a more grounded and practical learning experience.

How quickly can I complete the ACCP?

How quickly you complete the program depends on you and your schedule. The more time you have to dedicate to your training the quicker you can complete the courses. The program can be completed in 18 - 24 months, and you have up to 3 years in which to complete. We allow a maximum of 4 courses per month.
