For up-to-date credentialing information check the ICF Global website here. If you scroll down this page to the bottom you will find a useful summary of the individual ICF Credential Requirements.

The ICF offers three credentials:

  • Associate Certified Coach (ACC),
  • Professional Certified Coach (PCC), and
  • Master Certified Coach (MCC).

Detailed information on how to apply for each credential is available through the links below.

There is an expectation that all ICF Credentialed coaches will continue their education and build on their level of experience. The resulting growth in competency and professionalism will be evidenced by their journey to the MCC credential.
