We're ICF Accredited as Level 2

Get your ICF ACC or PCC credential with Lumia.
In human speak that means:

Graduates of the 35 week Lumia Signature program are eligible to apply for an ACC or PCC Credential with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). In addition to being ICF accredited, Lumia is also a member of the Association of Coach Training Organizations.

Why it matters:

The ICF is considered by many to represent the gold standard of coaching, and is the most widely recognized global coaching organization on the planet.

Some coaches want to work with executives, do business oriented coaching, or apply for internal coaching jobs. In the corporate world, you’ll be more competitive for those roles with an ICF credential.

Others aspire to coach teams, teach, or offer group facilitation. Again, ICF credentials can give you an edge in those spaces.

Regardless of where you’re headed as a coach, ICF credentials can pave the way to future opportunities that you may not have considered yet. As more coaches enter the marketplace, credentialing can help you stand out from the crowd.

Is Lumia Right for You?

We don't like to put people in boxes, but our students usually fit into one of these categories:

Enthusiastic Self Starters

You're looking to shift careers, or you're ready to step out of coaching on the side and into coaching full-time.

People Leaders

You’re in a management or community organizing role, and want better tools for coaching, inspiring and motivating others.

Health & Wellness Service Providers

You're already a therapist or have a service based business, and would like to learn the tools of coaching to enhance your current offerings (or create new ones!)

Established Coaches

You know the coaching industry is expanding, and want the credentials, additional training, and community support that can open new doors of opportunity for your work.

Community Is What Sets Lumia Apart

We are not just a training program but a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive community.

From the very start, our aim has been to shake up the space of coaching. To smash the status quo and help usher forward a better world. We believe coaching and equity go hand in hand, and envision a future where all humans have the tools and resources to not just survive, but thrive.

There's plenty of room for everyone to be the best versions of themselves.

Expect to find like-minded people here, along with the opportunity to build relationships with others who share your values and aspirations.

We believe coaches learn best from a multiplicity of voices and viewpoints, both within the student body and on our teaching team.

Rather than having just one or two teachers, we’ve curated a world class group of more than 20 instructors.

Together, our team represents 25 academic disciplines, with skills that translate across education, law, nonprofit, technology, consumer goods, and corporate sectors.

Our instructors will dare you to think outside the box and embrace your own unique approach to the craft of coaching.
