What is the difference between Coach U and Corporate 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:

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. 

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 have up to 3 years from the date of enrollment to complete the program.
