 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.
