Going for ACC or PCC this year?

In support of our members on their credentialing journey, we have organized an evening with ICF assessors Nancy Hughes, PCC, and Tony Latimer, MCC, who will observe and provide feedback on two live coaching sessions.

Whether you volunteer to coach and receive feedback or simply learn by attending, this session will help provide a better understanding of what assessors are looking for when observing coaching at either ACC or PCC levels. At the end of the session you will also have an opportunity to discuss specific questions you may have about the ICF Credentialing process.
