How to Become a Coach

Steps with Center for Coaching Certification

The gold standard for being a coach is membership in the International Coaching Federation (ICF).   The ICF requires 60 hours of training to become a member.  In addition to membership, the ICF offers credentialing – think about it this way: becoming a member of the ICF is much like getting an associates degree, and then earning a credential is much like getting a degree or masters level degree.

The easiest way to explain the process is these two infographics from the website at https://www.coachcert.com/en/about/faqs/how-to-become-a-coach.html
