As the journey to becoming a coach is explored, many are learning that the International Coaching Federation, ICF, is in the process of transitioning to new standards for coach training. This is exciting! The new standards include requirements for the coach training organizations and increase the minimum training hours for a program.
What does this mean for someone starting the coaching journey? The a-la-carte approach will continue to be an option. The more expedient and less expensive route will be the all-in-one cohort option.
- For the a-la-carte approach to the ACC, the Certified Professional Coach, Certified Master Coach, and Mentor Coaching programs can be registered for independently to accommodate busy schedules.
- For the all-in-one approach to earn the ACC this year, the Foundational Cohort includes all three of these programs at a discounted rate and as an added benefit it is one group moving through together.
The good news is that all of these programs are designed to meet ICF standards, are currently accredited as ACSTH or ACTP, and are pending the transition to Level 1 and 2 accreditation by ICF.
