ICAgile Certified Professional – Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC) is one of two knowledge-based certifications on the Agile Coaching track. The certification focuses primarily on the mindset, roles, and responsibilities of an Agile Coach.
After finishing this training, you will be able to differentiate between mentoring, teaching and coaching, and you will also gain the skills needed to create a safe environment for meaningful collaboration and healthy conflict resolution within an Agile team. This training introduces learners to team development concepts around starting and growing teams while paying particular attention to team dynamics and the surrounding organizational system.
A key part of this training focuses on developing an understanding of the professional coaching, mentoring, and training skill sets and the value of honing these skills to serve individuals on an Agile team, as well as those in leadership positions.
The training is very experiential and provides the students opportunities to practice coaching, mentoring, and training exercises.
This program is split up into ten live virtual sessions (two hours per virtual session) and four hours of mandatory asynchronous self-paced work (homework).
