International Coach Federation
The International Coach Federation (ICF) is widely regarded as the industry gold standard for coaching accreditation. All coaches, regardless of training, are welcome to become “members” of the ICF, attend conferences, and access valuable resources. Additionally, the ICF has three levels of accreditation: Associate Certified Coach (ACC), Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and Master Certified Coach (MCC). These levels are achieved based on number of hours of ICF-approved training, number of coaching hours logged, and successful completion of the ethics and competencies test.
Leadership Coaching Academy meets or exceeds the requirements in every category for its graduates to apply for ACC accreditation via the portfolio pathway. We provide the information and paperwork necessary for you to submit to the ICF once you have completed 100 hours of coaching.
