Why the International Coach Federation?

The job of coaching is auto-regulated by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the first federation of its kind in the world that sets professional standards and promotes top-class training through its accredited programmes, enforcing its code of ethics, and promoting its independent certification systems.

31 000 members in more than 140 countries

Achieving ICF certification is a demanding task, requiring continuous training and supervision, and the undertaking of written and oral examinations before an independent panel of experts.

ICF is a guarantee of quality and reliability of its certified members

ICF proposes three certification levels of certification/credentialing:

ACC – Associated Certified Coach, which associates the coach to the credentialing system. To pass, the coach must show 60 hours of coaching-specific training, 10 hours of supervision/mentor coaching, 100 hours of practice and pass an oral examination (20-30-minute coaching with an official ICF Assessor).

PCC – Professional Certified Coach, the coach becomes a professional, demonstrating 125 hours of coaching specific training, 10 hours of supervision/mentor coaching and 500 hours of practice.

MCC – Master Certified Coach, the coach reaches master level, having completed 200 hours of training, 10 hours supervision/mentor coaching and 2500 hours of practice.
