A warm welcome to our Diploma of Mentoring, Coaching and Interpersonal Facilitation Life Coaching Coach Training Courses in Perth Australia.
This course is delivered in alignment with the International Coach Federation's 11 Core Competencies and gives you the skills to bring coaching and mentoring to your work, your life and everything you do
In 2014 we began transitioning away from being nationally accredited with our unique Certificate IV in Mentoring and Coaching which was only recognised in Australia, to becoming internationally accredited through the International Coach Federation. By December 2014 we were a fully accredited coach training program provider, able to offer our discerning students an internationally recognised training program - our very own Diploma of Mentoring, Coaching and Interpersonal Facilitation.
The course has the same great quality and training we have offered for the last 8 years, however, by leaving the Australian Skills Quality Authority in favour of the International Coach Federation, we can bring you that great training, make it even more relevant to your needs, more responsive to what's happening in industry in the moment, and keep the costs affordable to you, the student.
We have designed a unique course for those who are ready to start their life’s work and create lasting change for the better – for themselves individually as well as on a wider scale, reaching out through their sphere of influence into the community and out into the world.
We are at the birth of a new career choice and it is an exciting time to be taking part in something that is sure to touch the hearts and minds of many.
Mentoring and coaching is becoming more and more sought after both individually as well as in the corporate and community sector.
The course is designed so that, while you learn the art, science and skills of effective coaching and mentoring, alongisde this you also work on better yourself, clearing anything that could get in the way of you being the very best you can be. We believe that WHO YOU ARE IS HOW YOU COACH.
The tools and exercises assist you to get in touch with the authentic Being that you are. You get to experience the benefits of the tools – becoming a product of the product. You then work with one another to gain practice, insight and wisdom (knowledge applied). Once you are feeling more capable and confident, you work with pro bono clients (providing free services in exchange for practical experience) before unleashing the fantastic Mentor and Coach that you are on your own workplace or community.
The course is very practical in its approach, with plenty of hands-on experience and group support and opportunities to practice. There are regular live teleconferences as well as group sessions via teleconference and webinars, where you get to ask questions, clarify understanding, be tutored or mentored and learn with your class mates.
We work on the transformative learning model, which involves everyone in the class learning together, bringing their learning observations, questions, skills and wisdom to contribute to the whole class's learning.
The course is taught in English, based in Perth Australia, where you will come for the face-to-face intensives. The classes are conducted via webinar and teleconference, so you can join those from the comfort of your own home of office. For those who live in Perth and would like to come in person to our fortnightly classes, you are welcome to come to our training rooms in our lovely semi-rural setting in the north of Perth.
The course's foundation is based on the 11 core competencies, standards and ethics set down by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Students, who complete the training hours of this course, as well as 100 hours of actual coaching required by the ICF, either during or after training, will be eligible to take the final examination with ICF and gain a credential with the International Coach Federation and become internationally accredited.

How is the course taught? Life Coaching Coach Training Courses in Perth Australia.
The course is delivered through blended learning, which means there are some components which are delivered face-to-face via workshops, some componenets delivered via teleconferences and webinars which are attended online or via phone.
The course commences with the first of the 3 face-to-face intensives. This is the induction intensive and lasts for a full 3 days over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It gives students an introduction to the art and science of coaching skills. It a mix of a little bit of 'chalk and talk' to introduce each topic with interaction, then each topic has practical and experiential activities for the students to then DO the work and learn by doing.
Immediately after the workshop the fortnightly teleconference/webinar classes begin (on a Monday afternoon at 5.30pm to 7pm Perth Australia time). These classes are interactive with students sharing ideas, asking questions and participating in learning activities during each call.
A mix of theory and practical skills taught in an interactive way to cover the varying and different learning styles of everyone.
The second face-to-face intensive of 3 days duration is held 4 months later. This workshop is on essential presenting skills and is highly activity based with much more 'doing' than 'teaching'.
The final 2 day face-to-face intensive will be held at the conclusion of the course and will be, once again, all about 'doing'. It culminates the course's work with students delivering a short workshop or interactive presentation they've created which is aimed at training a group of people, using a coaching and mentoring approach.
Notes and resources are available on the website to download and work with regularly. There are also a number of books to purchase and read, about which students will submit a reflective written piece on what they learned or gained from working with the book.
The teleconference classes are held fortnightly on a Monday evening (from 5.30pm to 7pm Perth time).
Students will be allocated triads in which to practice coaching and mentoring one another. These will be supervised by a tutor and provide richly rewarding opportunities to learn, practice, reflect and grow as a coach and mentor. There will be a total of 27 triad calls which students arrange at times to suit each triad and their tutors.
Ethics is another important piece of our culture. There will be group calls where students will be divided into groups of 4 to discuss a series of case studies and ethical dilemmas with one another as peers. These calls will be facilitated by a tutor who will hold the space and contribute to the conversation from time to time to help students consider angles they hadn't seen before.
Additionally there will be other teleclasses as we bring different experts in their fields to come and share their wisdom with us.
The teleclasses are an important part of the training and your accreditation and must be attended with a minimum of 80% in person and the remainder may be caught up by listening to the recording of the call and submitting a written piece on whaqt the student learnt from the call and how they could use the learning in their life.
