Education Search Service (ESS)

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) does not offer initial education and training to become a coach (we only offer professional development for practiced coaches). As the accrediting body for coach-specific education and accredited providers, we cannot recommend any specific coaching education organizations.

To ensure quality education, ICF accredits coaching education organizations that meet the high standards set forth by ICF and ICF Coaching Education. To find ICF-Accredited Providers we suggest that you use our Education Search Service (ESS) below. The search for a coach education program is a highly individual process that depends greatly on your personal preferences and goals. The ESS is designed to give you basic information about all ICF-Accredited Education Providers.


For further information, please contact this training organization rather than the ICF office. The ICF recommends all approved programs equally and cannot recommend one program over another.

Our Philosophy At CoachVille:
What is Transformation Coaching?
Transformation Coaching is A LOT more than you may have heard. Transformation coaching is a profound relationship!
Learning how to provide this sophisticated level of care, support and challenge will be one of the most amazing personal growth adventures you ever undertake.
Problems, tasks, and accountability.
The Human Potential Movement hit a real snag when it blended into the Industrial Psychology obsession with fixing problems. It became the norm of “self-help’ to convince people about their problems and pain so that the guru could sell them their solution. Transformation Coaching starts with the premise that the player is awesome!
Human nature is… AWESOME!
There is something wrong with you. But we can fix it.
You have amazing superpowers to share with the world.
Dreams, guided practice, co-creation, the spirit of play.
Transformation Coaches are the champions of dreams:
Why Dreams and not objectives or goals? This is an important question! Objectives are very task-oriented and more about getting it done. Dreams are playful and growth-oriented; they evoke adventure and becoming the next version of YOU!
Stale, robotic, Key performance indicators.
Wildly alive desires, imagination, playfulness, adventure, and fun!!!
Transformation Coaches practice social play:
Coaching is guiding a player in pursuit of playing better. But how do we play life? We have a little model that encourages the player and the coach to approach any dream with the spirit of play and an opportunity for personal growth AND social influence!
Social play… social practice… social fear.
Working alone on tasks that are risk-free and keep you small.
Embracing the risks of playing out in the world to influence others positively.
Transformation Coaches Guide the Human Journey:
When you guide someone in pursuit of their dream in life, it really is a wild and rewarding adventure; it is not passive, that’s for sure. You love those hero’s journey stories! You get to be the wise and capable guide for everyone you coach. And you can do it from anywhere!
Every life… is a treasure map!
Tour guide with a road map.
Adventure Guide with a Treasure map.
Transformation Coaches are wise rebels:
The hero’s journey portion of transformation coaching requires a dominating status quo… and we have a big one: The Industrial Culture of Authoritarian Control Hierarchies! ARGH!
Almost every player with a Transformation Coach dreams of changing something in their own lives and the world around them. This requires an epic quest to challenge the status quo.
Transformation coaching cultures can change the world!
That’s just the way it is; we have to accept it.
We can courageously co-create something WAY better!
Transformation Coaches choose lifestyle freedom!
Coach the Dreams you Love!
Coach the players you resonate with.
Coach with your Signature Method.
Coach when it fits into the rest of your life.
Live where you feel most alive.
Doing what you are “supposed to do."
Choosing lifestyle freedom.
