Learning Objectives

The ICAgile Certified Professional - Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF) course provides a deep dive into the world of Agile facilitation. The course is a 2-day intensive face-to-face learning experience with pre-work using the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel to guide your journey. The course focuses on equipping you with new tools, techniques and skills to help you take your facilitation skills to the next level with an emphasis on learning through doing and receiving feedback rather than theory.

The ICAgile Professional Agile Coaching Certification (ACC) course provides a deep dive into the world of agile coaching focusing on 4 key areas of the role:

  • Professional Coaching - Learn the basics of Professional Coaching from ICF Certified Coaches. Competencies you will start to build include: Active Listening, Powerful Questions, Emotional Intelligence, Presence and Clean Feedback.
  • Mentoring - When someone you are working with runs out of ideas what do we do? Learn the core skills of a good mentor and how to support people through the difficult transition to a new way of working and avoid falling into consulting.
  • Serving the team - We will look at the basics of team coaching from ORSC trained trainers before moving on to looking at the importance of a solid team launch, coaching plan, impediment removal and conflict.
  • Facilitate Learning - Using Training from the BACK of the Room! techniques we will explore adult learning techniques culminating in creating a new learning experience you will be able to use.

Before you can be an effective Agile Coach you must first know yourself. We provide pre and post-work that focuses on this very thing. Using the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel to direct you as you grow throughout the course and the rest of your career.


Although it is not a formal prerequisite, we have found that this certification is best pursued after an Agile foundations course such as the Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Master (CSM) or Scrum Alliance Scrum Foundations or equivalent experience as an agile team facilitator.
