European Individual Accreditation - EIA

The EIA (European Individual Accreditation) is an accreditation system (or recognition by peers) that validates the level of professionalism of a coach by their:

  • Skills,
  • Experiences,
  • Attitudee,
  • Approach,
  • Reflective practice.

EIA accreditation takes place at 4 levels::

  • Foundation
  • Practitioner
  • Senior Practitioner
  • Master Practitioner

The assessment considers 8 categories of skills:

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Commitment to personal and professional development
  3. Contract management
  4. Building the relationship
  5. Support for the emergence of awareness and lessons
  6. Focus on results and action
  7. Use of models and techniques
  8. Evaluation

It is therefore indeed a professional path which progressively progresses the coach from Foundation to Master (via Practitioner and Senior Practitioner). Committing to it allows clients to guarantee that the level of professionalism has been validated and recognised at European level by senior peers at the end of a demanding process whose professional development dimension is recognised.
