Full Company Profile:

The International Coach Federation runs a rigorous accreditation process which requires coaches to:

1. Complete a minimum number of hours through an accredited training programme and maintain this through carefully assessed continuing professional development.

2. Deliver the required number of hours per accreditation level of paid-for coaching. Each coaching hour is logged for every client coached to that the ICF can audit the quality of the coaching delivered.

3. Commit to and be rigorously tested on the ICF Core Competencies, which are regarded as the basis for effective coaching

4. Be re-assessed regularly to ensure maintenance of this rigorous standard.

This gives clients and HR Executives the assurance that an ICF accredited coach has been credentialled at one of the 3 recognised levels:

  • ACC - Accredited Coach Certificate
  • PCC - Professional Coach Certificate
  • MCC - Master Coach Certificate

ICF coaches are assessed according to global standards and their continuing professional development is also measured as part of maintaining their credential level.
