The Academy of Leadership Coaching and NLP’s training courses center on the core coaching competencies required for credentialing from the International Coaching Federation or ICF.
ICF offers the only independent credentialing program recognized worldwide. ICF has credentialed more than 12,000 coaches in countries around the world since it was founded in 1995 and is recognized as the gold standard internationally. Credentialing, while not mandated by any law, is important and we highly recommend it. It tells clients you meet or exceed the professional requirements for training and practice in the coaching field.
We offer all levels of training to become an ICF Certified Coach –
Associate Certified Coach (ACC): Requirements include: completion of a set amount of coach-specific training; 100 coaching experience hours; at least eight clients, as well as other requirements.
Professional Certified Coach (PCC): Completion of a set amount of coach-specific training; 750 coaching experience hours; at least 25 clients, as well as other requirements.
Master Certified Coach (MCC): Completion of a set amount of coach-specific training; 2,500 coaching hours; at least 35 clients, as well as other requirements.
Credentialing ensures there are professional standards for coaches, which strengthens and enhances our effectiveness and credibility as a profession. To learn more about ICF and the credentialing process, visit our Certificate Programs Training Certification FAQ or call us at 866.383.4333.
