EQA adds accreditation for Optimus Coach Academy’s Diploma programme

The Professional Coach Diploma at UK-based Optimus Coach Academy has been accredited with a Practitioner level EMCC Global Quality Award (EQA), following a robust assessment that looked at the quality and content of its curriculum and delivery.

The Diploma brings in theories from neuroscience, positive psychology and psychodynamic approaches, as well as normative coaching methodologies. It is designed for students to build their own unique coaching style and approach, through mentoring and feedback.

Optimus Coach Academy was founded by Ruth Kudzi, an accomplished speaker, author, podcaster and contributor. The decision to add EMCC Global accreditation to the course means that all its graduates will be able to apply for their own EMCC Global Individual Accreditation (EIA) at Practitioner level automatically, with their individual awards applied on completion of the appropriate coaching experience.

The EMCC Global accreditation joins accreditations from other coaching and mentoring bodies, meaning the Diploma has also undergone and achieved other external verifications for its content and delivery.

Ruth said:

“Accreditation from EMCC Global is the icing on the cake; it means that we’re able to offer our students a choice of accreditation bodies when they work with us and equally gives our students accreditation on completion of our course. We align with the EMCC Global ethos and are excited to be a part of this organisation and the wider community of coaches worldwide.”

We congratulate Ruth on the team’s achievement, along with Coach Training Director Julia Rogers who led the application.

Denise Whitworth, EMCC Global VP of Accreditation and Membership, said: “It has been a pleasure for the team to support this application, and we will continue to do so as Ruth and Optimus seek to add additional accreditation to their other courses. Their values of quality, learning and growth, collaboration and communication, resilience and courage, equality and inclusion, and transparency were evident throughout and we look forward to also welcoming their students to the EMCC Global accredited family.”
