How do you define Internal Coaching?

An Internal Coach is an employee within an organisation who has been trained and qualified as a professional coach practitioner and has specific coaching responsibilities with colleagues outside own line of management responsibilities.

Does ACSTH accredited training means I am an ICF credentialed coach?

ACSTH training stands for Accredited Coach Specific Training Hours and it is a term used by ICF to signify that a specific program has been assessed to meet all operational and quality standards to cover training requirements for credentialing via the ACSTH option. Minimum ACSTH for ACC credentialing are 60 hours and the Atom Wave "Internal Coach Certification" program is a 90 hour program with 70 ACSTH hours, so the 60 hours are more than covered. Additionally,the program includes supervised practice AND 6 out of the 10 mentoring hours should you decide to proceed with ICF Accreditation.

In order to get credentialed as a coach at ACC level by the ICF, after completion of the Atom Wave "Internal Coach Certification" requirements, you would also need:

  • 4 Hours of Mentor Coaching (within the program you get 6 mentoring hours and therefore only need 4 instead of 10)
  • Submit a Recorded Session & Transcript which will be assessed 
  • 100 client coaching hrs (not with Direct reports)
  • Pass the Coach Knowledge Assessment
  • Pay the respective application fee

How much time would I need to invest to meet requirements of this program?

The program spans within a 6 month period and it has a 90 hour duration. Therefore, you could estimate an average of 15 -20 hours per month. Of course this varies according to each individual.

How can you tell whether coaching has been an investment worthwhile?

This is a very good question that is relevant not only for coaching but for most Leadership Development programs as well. Business Impact and measuring ROI is a core area of our own research about coaching and and as such we have incorporated in our ACSTH "Internal Coach Certification" program a simple yet effective methodology to calculate ROI of your internal coaching assignments.
