Accreditation

At the IPPC, we understand the importance of high standards in the coaching profession. Our evidence-based coach training curriculum is accredited by the ICF for continuing education credits. 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 practice, business and career.

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 within an evidence-based coaching approach 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.
