The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the leading global organization dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals.
As the world’s largest organization of professionally trained coaches, ICF confers instant credibility upon its members. ICF is also committed to connecting member coaches with the tools and resources they need to succeed in their careers.
ICF offers the only globally recognized, independent credentialing program for coach practitioners. ICF Credentials are awarded to professional coaches who have met stringent education and experience requirements and have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies that set the standard in the profession. Achieving credentials through ICF signifies a coach’s commitment to integrity, understanding and mastery of coaching skills, and dedication to clients.
I’m officially an associate certified coach from the International coaching federation. After completing my training program at ADDCA I became an ACC. I’m an ACC certified by the ICF now.
This is what I needed to do to qualify for ICF status.
- A minimum of 100 hours of coaching experience.
- Completion of the Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA).
