Application, Programs & Courses

The IPPC curriculum is advanced training and not for those who are only starting to learn how to become a coach. Our program is for trained and accredited coaches and other professions such as therapists, leaders, HR professionals and entrepreneurs who have already incorporated coaching into their skill set and offerings.

Therefore, we review all applications to ensure that everyone is starting at the same level.

Accreditation

At the IPPC, we understand the importance of ICF recognition.  

This is why we have applied to have our curriculum accredited by the ICF. We are currently awaiting final confirmation of the number of continuing education credits that can be earned through to our Applied Positive Psychology Coaching training.

This means the credentials you will earn with the IPPC will carry the weight and prestige of an internationally recognized organization. 

The IPPC also wants our coaches and leaders to “do good and prosper”. That’s why we also provide a business practicum that will give you the skills and tools to increase your earning potential in your field as well.

Please check our Level 1 and Level 2 programs to learn more.

No, the individual accreditation fees required by the ICF are separate from the IPPC certification fees. The IPPC operates independently from the ICF.

Both the completion of Level 1 and Level 2 courses are required to be recognized as a Certified Applied Positive Psychology Coach.  

The IPPC’s curriculum is the first of its kind, using an integrated approach to applied positive psychology coaching by combining the science of positive psychology and coaching psychology with the application of evidence-based coaching. It was designed to deepen your learning and advance your practical coaching skills throughout each course as you progress in the program.

You will receive a certificate of completion for each IPPC course that you complete, as well as for the completion of Levels 1 and 2 (full certification).

You can upload the certificate(s) when you renew your credentials, and they will be recognized by the ICF.

Credits

Each application is reviewed carefully to determine whether any advanced standing applies. Because the IPPC curriculum is the first of its kind to offer coach training using an integrated approach to applied positive psychology coaching, transferable credit is determined on a course-by-course basis.

Each application is reviewed carefully to determine whether any advanced standing applies.  While we do recognize the knowledge around positive psychology from completion of a Masters degree, the IPPC curriculum focuses on both positive psychology and coaching psychology, and how to bring these two scientific fields together as applied positive psychology coaching in a coaching practice. The requirements of our program are structured as such to provide consistent learning experiences and understanding of the IPPC’s integrated approach.

The other key difference from many other programs is that the IPPC curriculum is 25% theory and 75% application-based, focusing on developing and enhancing coaching skills. We also provide an in-depth practicum along with group supervision and private coaching to help students build their coaching skills and practice in a sustainable way.
