As an ICF Member, you’ll enjoy instant credibility by identifying yourself as part of the world’s largest community of professionally trained coaches. You’ll also have access to local and global networking opportunities, cutting-edge business development and marketing education, and a variety of research and resources to help you reach your coaching goals.
Membership in coaching organizations continues to increase. According to the ICF-commissioned 2020 Global Coaching Study, almost three in four respondents (74%) said they are an ICF Member.
Respondents who were members of one or more professional associations reported 30% higher average revenue/income from coaching compared to those who are not currently members.
To become an ICF Member, you must complete at least 60 hours of coach-specific training that meets ICF standards. The best way to accomplish this is by enrolling in an ICF-accredited coach training program.
