ICF Certification program in Coachcompanion

The market is seeing an increasing demand for high-quality professional coaches. Because of that, our customers are learning to see the difference between those who call themselves coaches and those who are professionally certified as coaches. They are coaches who have keen professional pride and realize that there is something of more value, beyond an 8-day program. Indeed, they know that it is imperative to keep their knowledge fresh, and are focused on continuously developing themselves.

Program Structure:

The certification program includes:

  • Eight full days of training from 9 am to 5 pm
  • Training days spread over a period of eight months with one training day every month
  • Marketing and sales techniques to find paying clients
  • Peer coaching with a training colleague
  • Oral examination in order to complete the certification program during the examination month
  • Certification ceremony on successful completion and dinner with CoachCompanion as your host.
  • Help our program participants to register on ICF’s Web page and complete the written examination to receive their International Certificate.

We help you all the way to the goal!

Program Contents

Each training day has its own unique theme, with a clear focus on building understanding and knowledge of the 11 ICF core competencies. Emphasis is laid on the individual development and inner leadership.


We have several different trainers depending on the city and the country as well as for our mentor coaches and module coaches (mentor coaching in the group). In addition, everyone is certified at the ACC level and most of them on the PCC level. Because we have the right to perform the oral certification we have higher demands from ICF then other training companies. In summary, that secure for quality.


Our training is always based on action learning, for this reason, the participants learn primarily from training but also short theory pass, guidance and feedback and through other participants’ experiences and knowledge.

The theme for each day of training is as described below.

ICF Core competencies covered: Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards

Firstly oral examinations needs to be attended by each program participant in order to complete the Certification program. Furthermore  these examinations are held for all participants according to a pre-established schedule.

Secondly and upon successful completion of the oral examination, CoachCompanion hosts the certification ceremony followed by a dinner in honor of your success.

We also offer you, our program participant, further support to register on ICF’s Web page and complete the written examination, which is necessary to receive your International Certificate.

In addition and as a bonus, CoachCompanion invites all our program participants to join us for a Swedish Fika on all training days. The Fika is a uniquely Swedish tradition of mingling over coffee and specific Swedish delicacies. Therefore we offer all participants a yummy start to the day with a delicious breakfast buffet to go with their morning coffee as well as an afternoon coffee break with organic treats. Enjoy your Fika as you mingle with a great mix of participants who share their experiences with each other from day one!
