7 Reasons to Choose Erickson Coach Training

7 Reasons to Choose Erickson Coach Training

1. Over 37 years of training globally

Erickson Coaching was founded in 1980 and initially specialized in NLP, counselling, and other fundamental human development programs. During that time, our founder Marilyn Atkinson was already anticipating a fundamental shift in the model from past-centred dissatisfaction to orienting clients towards their desired future outcomes. She actively shaped how Solution-Focused Methodology now informs and differentiates coaching from other disciplines in the field.

2. Flexible Training Delivery 

Our cutting-edge online and fast track on-site programs offer the highest quality of content, peer engagement, and caliber of coaching instructors. There are a number of options available to structure your course schedule. You can combine online and on-site training for a greater flexibility, and schedule your training over a shorter or longer time frame. Erickson offers you maximum flexibility to pursue coach training at your own pace and comfort level. 

3. ICF Accredited Certification

Erickson Coaching is a firm supporter of The International Coach Federation (ICF). The ICF regulates the standards for all coaching educational institutions to deliver a high quality of coach training, so that each new coach meets core competencies of a high professional caliber. Individual coaches and schools that pursue ICF accreditation demonstrate expertise in coaching, in both knowledge and skill, and an ongoing commitment to excellence. Erickson’s world-renowned coach training program The Art & Science of Coaching, and many other coaching courses we teach, are fully accredited by the ICF.

4. World Class Trainers

All Erickson trainers are ICF certified coaches that have years of experience facilitating and leading training, alongside their own thriving coaching practices. They are experts in the field of coaching, and their training is appraised yearly by senior educational administration to ensure that they meet Erickson’s high standards of delivery and expertise.
