Graduation and Certification Requirements

Advanced ADHD Coach Training

A student at ADDCA may be taking courses for a variety of purposes.  Therefore, ADDCA offers different levels of accomplishment for the Advanced ADHD Coach Training program.

 

I.  Certificate of coach training hours Completion
II.  Graduation (ACG designation)
III. Certification (ACCG certification) (see requirements below)

 

I.  Certificate of coach training hours Completion (without ACG designation):

 

A student can receive a ‘Certificate of Completion’ of the ADDCA  Advanced Coach Training program, without ACG designation, if they elect to only attend and participate in the classes and complete the module reviews.  Students wanting a ‘Certificate of Completion’ do not have to complete the requirements of mentor coaching, client coaching hours, welcome packet, coaching feedback, and final oral evaluation.

 

This certificate of coach training hours completion can be used as part of an ICF portfolio application or an ICF recertification.  It could also be used for a PAAC certification application.

 

II. Graduation (with ACG designation):


 A student can graduate from the  Advanced program and receive an ADDCA Coach Graduate (ACG) designation by meeting the Advanced program graduation requirements..  A student can graduate with an ACG designation with a minimum of 182.5 hours of coach training by:

 

  • Attendance: Completing the Simply ADHD (Module 99) , Personal Transformation (Module 100), Basic Course (Modules 101-104), and Advanced Course (Modules 201-206) at or above the required attendance level
  • Module Review Questions: Successfully completing the Module Reviews for each module above
  • Supervised Coaching (Module 207): Meet Supervised Coaching teleclass requirements- (Coach 4x / Act as Client 2x / Observe 6 hours)
  • Mentor Coaching: Working with an ADHD PCC/PCAC or MCC/MCAC mentor coach for at least 10 hours (up to 7 hours can be group) (cumulative from Basic) (ICF requires 10 hours and PAAC requires 40 hours to apply for second level certification)  *
  • Mentor Letter of Recommendation: Obtaining 1 Letter of Recommendation from your mentor coach confirming you are coaching at the PCC/PCAC level
  • Client Coaching: Submitting a log confirming that he/she has coached at least 5 clients for a minimum of 100 hours (only 20 hours can be pro bono)
  • Project: Having completed an individual research project
  • Applying for graduation: Request to schedule final oral coaching exam. A brief application is required.
  • Final Oral Exam: Successfully completing a final oral coaching exam

 

Please note:
 

* Additional fee applies for mentor coaching

 


 

III.  Certification (ACCG Certification)**:

 

IMPORTANT: In order for a student coach to apply for Advanced Certification (ACCG) they must have graduated with their ACG designation (see above- Graduation with ACG Designation) and met the requirements to apply for (AACG) Certication.(see below- Requirements to Apply for ACCG Certification).



Requirements to Apply for ACCG certification:

Before one can apply for this certification at ADDCA, a student must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a graduate of the Advanced program and have received your ACG designation
  • Have coached at least 20 clients and accumulated at least 350 client coaching hours (Up to 30 hours can be pro bono; the rest must be paid coaching hours.)
  • Have worked with an  ADHD MCC/MCAC mentor coach for at least 10 hours over a 3-month period and within the six months prior to your certification application
  • Have obtained two letter from ADHD MCC/MCAC coaches  who have heard you coach and can attest that you are coaching at the ACCG/PCC level

 

Once a student has graduated from the Advanced ADHD Coach Training  program with an ACG designation, that student can choose to work toward a next level of graduation (Mastery)  or pause and go for graduate certification (ACCG) as soon as he/she has met the graduate certification requirements.

 

This ACCG Certification will test applicants at the same coaching standards level as the ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC). The benefit of applying for the ACCG is that you will be tested by assessors familiar with ADHD coaching. you can apply and get tested faster than the certification process at ICF, and you will be able to apply to obtain the ACCG designation with half the coaching experience hours needed for the ICF PCC designation. When you successfully receive the ACCG, and once you’ve accumulated the 750 experience hours, you can apply at ICF as an ACTP applicant rather than as a portfolio applicant.



Please note:

**There is an additional fee for  the ACCG application process.
