Coach Training in Vancouver: Summer Intensive 2019

written byErickson Coaching Internationalon 13/06/2019

Every July since 2005, Erickson Coaching International has hosted one of our most popular programs – The Art & Science of Coaching Summer Intensive in Vancouver, Canada. While Erickson is now represented in over 85 countries by more than 45,000 graduates, it all began here in Vancouver.

Each summer, aspiring coaches travel from across the globe to congregate in the beautiful city of Vancouver for 4 weeks of coach training that "is truly life changing".  

Vancouver is among Canada’s densest and most ethnically diverse cities. A popular filming location, it’s surrounded by gorgeous mountains and invites outdoor and cultural pursuits of all kinds. Vancouver Art Gallery is known for its works by regional artists, while the Museum of Anthropology houses preeminent First Nations collections. Getting your world-class coach training in beautiful Vancouver will provide you with an unparalleled experience of a lifetime.

In addition to the fast-track coach training, there is also a great sense of community building and networking. On the last Saturday of the program, Erickson hosts a Summer Intensive Celebration. All Summer Intensive students are invited to join the Erickson community in enjoying the sights of Vancouver as we gather together to celebrate!
