The course is assessed by the instructor(s). You must complete a basic 10-minute coaching conversation to complete the course; however, the instructors will work with you until this is possible.
Please note: You will only receive the ICAgile Professional Agile Coaching Certification (ACC)when the pre-work, four modules, and post-work have been completed.
Agile Coaches or aspiring coaches with a passion for servant leadership and a desire to learn and practice facilitation, professional coaching, mentoring, and teaching in service of Agile teams. Other relevant roles include ScrumMasters, Iteration Managers and Agile Project Managers.
Although it is not a formal prerequisite, we have found that this certification is best pursued after an agile foundation course such as Scrum Foundations, Agile Fundamentals or CSM/PSM.
Pre-work is provided focused on self-reflection using the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel*. There is also a pre-call to support you in completing the prework and setting you up for success during the training.
As this is an online course, you will need a computer with a camera and a headset. You will also need to install the zoom client. We highly recommend you use a personal laptop to comply with any company security policies and ensure you can access everything you need to during the course.

I attended the online version of the ICAgile Agile Coaching course through Agile Affinity and found it well structured and no less than a face to face experience. I loved how the latest online tools were used for our benefit. The course content was great and was presented very well by the very knowledgeable trainers. Thank you, it was a great learning experience, and I would love some more online courses like these to be introduced. - Parija Thakur Agile Coach at Cancer Research UK.
