Today I got my diploma as proof of finishing the coach training at CoachCompagniet in Malmö. This means I am a professional coach. Each of us did a 15 minutes coaching session which should cover the coaching core competencies. This was done before two certified coaches who were judging us.
The coach training is accredited by ICF and had sixtynine hours of lectures, training in the eleven coach core competencies, individual coaching sessions, homework and practice clients. The course schedule was two days a month for four months, August to November, plus the diploma day. Between the modules we had our practice clients, homework and our individual coaching sessions. It has taken a lot of time and energy but it was well worth it.
