What Makes MMS Different than other Coach Training Programs?

Manageable Time Commitment 

Our online group training takes place over a 3-month period.. That’s it. It’s intensive, but we know you’re busy, so we get it done fast.

Hands-on Practice & Live Feedback

Our training process enables participants to learn coaching skills with plenty of live practice and direct feedback from our Mentor Coaches. This gives our graduates the confidence to start coaching right away!

Holistic View

Your own development is just as much a part of this process as anything else. We offer opportunities to be introspective as well as academic.

ICF Certified Training

This is the gold standard of coaching certification, and we teach the professional skills, techniques, and core competencies required. Participants will understand the curriculum’s nuances in preparation for the passing the exam.

Caters to Different Learning Styles

Our training approach caters to different learning styles for auditory, visual and experiential learners.

Pure Methodology

The training you get is pure MMS and rigorous ICF certified curriculum.

MMS NorCal provided a wonderful ICF-accredited training experience.  Not only was the content and delivery top notch as one would expect, but the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Carla and Lindsey invite you into their lives and their community.  It’s not just a certification, it’s a membership to a holistic and supportive environment to becoming a coach and achieving your dreams so you can help others do the same.  I highly recommend MMS NorCal!

The MMS Northern California ICF Coach Specific Training Hours

Our 60 Hour and 125 hour Coach Trainings are designed by “The Mother of Coaching’, Dr. Cherie Carter-Scott, MCC, who has been training coaches worldwide since 1974.


What coaching credentials will I learn?

Students who take our Level 1 or Level 2 Training become eligible for the ICF exam. Our training is a comprehensive 60-hour or 125 hour program and includes live practice sessions, the opportunity to be coached by the leaders and other coaches-in-training; as well as tips to prepare for the ICF exam. Graduates leave our training with the self-confidence and skills to immediately start coaching and supporting their clients in making their goals become a reality. Our 60-hour training gives you the hours required by ICF to apply for the ACC accreditation and will also give you plenty of practice coaching while getting live feedback from peers and mentor coaches. Once students complete the program, they can use those hours toward ICF Global Membership and can apply for the ACC credential. Students who are wishing to get their PCC can take our Level 2 Training.

      “The ASCTH ICF-accredited training offered by MMS NorCal is outstanding. Several years ago, I attended an Inner Negotiation Workshop with MMS NorCal and got to witness first-hand the power and healing of coaching. I knew instantly that I wanted to take this training and be a coach. The training changed my life and truly taught me how to ask for what I want and make choices that are best for me. It was very helpful in developing my new skills to have ample time in the program to practice and consistently receive constructive feedback. The material covered in the course serves as a framework for ongoing learning and connection in the coaching community. I find myself regularly applying what I learned in my everyday life. I am passionate about MMS NorCal’s mission to share this beautiful work and am now honored to be a working member of the MMS NorCal team!”
