ICF Certification


ICF Certification

  • Since obtaining ICF accreditation is integral to your coaching career, we have made the process as simple as possible. 

Your Commitment to Coaching

Obtaining your coach certification with the ICF (International Coach Federation) shows potential clients your commitment to the coaching profession and builds your industry-wide credibility. A few factors why coaching certification is important:

  • 84% of clients value certification as a professional standard of quality assurance
  • Certified coaches have higher income than non-certified coaches
  • Clients who work with certified coaches report better satisfaction and are more likely to recommend their coach to others

By regulating standards, skills and core competencies for coach training, the ICF ensures that life coaches, business coaches, and executive coaches are experienced, reliable professionals who abide by a strict code of ethics. There are three levels of coaching certification that ICF offers - ACC, PCC and MCC and you can read about each level below on this page.
