It took me almost 6 months to decide which coaching school I would attend. Now that I am a certified coach with the ICF, I can say that Erickson International was the right choice. The quality of teaching coupled with rich content, made it easy in the end.
Daniel Sigouin
The one year Erickson learning journey was amazing and helped me to develop the competencies and skills that I wanted to learn. I established a network of awesome people around the world. 2 sessions per week and homework were on one side challenging, on the other side the professional facilitators and the efficient learning platform supported the fast personal growth. The atmosphere in the class was open and positive and the facilitators inspirational and great to learn from. The learning approach was very professional and a good mix of theory, practical demonstration and own experimentation. I highly recommend Erickson!
Dr. Katharina Gnirke
I've been through coaching training programs outside of Erickson and many other training programs. After completing Erickson, I recommend this program to anyone looking to further their ability to lead, parent, coach, or just work on themselves. The way the program is structured layers in understanding in an integrated way that had me leave with confidence and excitement at my new capabilities. The training program is dialed in to give coaches the best abilities to truly support their clients and make an impact.

I found Erickson after searching for local coaching courses on Google. I've consistently been pleasantly surprised and satisfied with my coach journey since beginning my coaching education last year. I've loved the philosophy behind the Erickson coaching model, all the facilitators have been passionate, knowledgeable and experienced. Also, the global network of Erickson coaching has been such a welcome support in my coaching journey!
Brian Kingston
I learned so much about myself and others! I was able to develop skills I thought I already had.
Stefan Bagehorn
Solution Architect
I spent months researching and calling coaching schools. I knew I wanted a thorough program that would offer support and I wanted the faculty to be experienced. I made a phone call to Erickson and spent an hour on the phone with an administrator. After I hung up, I knew I had found excellence. My time at Erickson was exactly that. Excellent. From the faculty to the learning platform to mentorship every step was interesting, fun, exciting. It might be the best educational experience I have ever had. Because of this program I know that I am well positioned to be a great coach. I can't wait to help people achieve.
Charles Marroni
An amazing experience of successive stages of enlightenment. I was fortunate to be in a truly amazing group of 16 throughout the almost one year of training. We are still a tight group and still meet occasionally online. I believe coaching does appear to attract a certain type of individual, committed to changing the world, one coaching session at a time.
