Fran Fisher, Founder, MCC

* * *

Founder Fran Fisher's credentials are quite impressive: she's a Master Certified Coach with the ICF, a former ICF board member, and has even chaired the Credentialing Committee of the International Coach Federation (ICF). Further, she serves on the board of the Association for Coach Training Organizations (ACTO). If Fran doesn't know coach training, then I don't know who does.

The combination of face-to-face training and teleclasses gives you the best of both worlds. In the face-to-face training you get to connect strongly with your new community of coaches, and motivate yourself for the road ahead. And - you get to save some travel and 'away from home time' by taking a large part of the training via a proven teleclass (teleconferencing) platform. The training involves four in-person, interactive 2- and 3-day weekend courses and one 19-week teleconference course. Course location is mainly Seattle, Washington, but sometimes Orange County, California and Toronto, Canada.

The only disadvantage I can find with this course is the travel required. If you live outside Seattle, Orange County or Toronto you'll need to factor travel into your budget. Then again, if you're a face-to-face kind of person, you'll probably have to travel no matter which course you do.

Students of this school would join because they love the strong coaching community, strong name recognition in the coaching industry, and above all, the quality of the training. Also, if you're in the US or Canada and have a strong leaning towards face to face training with an ICF accredited course, then this is probably a really easy decision for you - they just don't have much competition in this niche.

I recommend you contact ACT and join their free 'Learning About Coaching' 1-1/2 hour telecourse. (Hint: mention 'SolutionBox/BecomeaCoach.com' when you sign up and you'll be eligible for the training special if you ever enroll with this school).
