 ICF Credentialing 

The ICF Credentialing Program wants to ensure high standards and ethical practice within the coaching profession and to promote qualified and experienced professional coaches. Thus, the core of the program is a minimum number of logged coaching hours and coach-specific training, including references from colleagues and clients and, in certain cases, mentor coaching sessions.

The ICF credential is awarded to professional coaches who can demonstrate that they meet or exceed these minimum standards. 

Individual and program applications are accepted throughout the year. 

Check the ICF Global website for further details. 


If you would like more information about applying for ICF approval or accreditation for coach specific training programs, please check the Training Program Accreditation page on ICF Global website.

Purpose of ICF Credentials

The Purpose of the ICF Credentialing Program is to:

    • Establish and administer minimum standards for credentialing professional coaches and coach training organizations.

    • Assure the public that participating coaches and coach training organizations meet or exceed these minimum standards.

    • Reinforce professional coaching as a distinct and self-regulating profession.
