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.

Organization Description:
Founded in 2016, Synthesis Coaching Associates (SCA) provides Life Coach training, advanced specialization programs, and thematic webinars focusing on personal growth and leadership. All programs are delivered in an innovative on-line, on-demand format designed to maximize the learning experience for an international audience while eliminating the environmental impact associated with travel and in-person sessions.
To do this we use a combination of the latest distance learning tools, enriched by the collaboration of highly qualified international instructors and mentors presenting the only Life Coach training curriculum that integrates the transformational tools and methodologies of Psychosynthesis, a transpersonal psychology, and holistic approaches combining Eastern and Western philosophies with the highly effective coaching structure of the ICF Core Competencies.
Program Description: The Will Project is a professional advancement course intended to enhance coaching skills through an in-depth presentation of the insights provided by Psychosynthesis, a transpersonal psychology, into the entire process of formulating and achieving sustainable goals. What distinguishes this approach from more traditional objective-oriented methods is recognition that the interplay between the individual's psychic makeup and their ability to move forward- to "activate their will"- is a fundamental factor in the process of personal growth. The program provides specific and practical tools framed in the context of the ICF Core Competencies for facilitating client insight and transforming this insight into action. The program consists of 24 hours of synchronous learning (20hrs online sessions, 4 hrs coaching supervision), study materials available through each student’s own online dashboard and 3.5 hours of online webinars.
