Building upon your skillset is an integral part of your coaching journey.

We understand – it’s important for you to become the best coach you can be. By choosing ICF-accredited coach training, you can be confident that you are getting high-quality training. Though ICF does not offer training for becoming a coach, we accredit programs that deliver coach training and offer professional development for practiced coaches.

Which training program type is best for you?

Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP)

From Mentor Coaching, observed coaching sessions and a comprehensive final exam that will evaluate your coaching competency, ICF ACTP is considered an all-inclusive coach training program!

 

It includes a minimum of 125 hours of coach-specific training, including comprehensive instruction around the ICF Core Competencies, Code of Ethics and the ICF definition of coaching. 

 

Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH)

Often considered an a la carte coach training program, an ICF ACSTH program includes a minimum of 30 hours of coach-specific training, including instruction around the ICF Core Competencies and observed coaching sessions. 

 

Continuing Coach Education (CCE)

Intended for coaches who already have ICF Credentials or who have completed basic coach training, a CCE program may include advanced coach training that directly relates to or expands upon the ICF Core Competencies!

 

A CCE program may also include training in skills that contribute to your professional development, such as personal development, coaching assessments, tools, business building, or other materials falling outside of the ICF Core Competencies.
