Here is a short guide to getting international credentialing as a professional coach (for both in-house corporate coaches and independent coaches).
The International Coach Federation (ICF) offers three credentials: ACC, PCC, and MCC.
An ICF recognized credential is internationally respected and recognized - giving you credibility in the market.
With an ICF credential, you can confidently know that your competencies are truly at global standards, and that you can take your coaching skills anywhere in the world.
Founded in 1995, the ICF is the leading global organization dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. Based in Lexington, Ky. (USA), the ICF also operates Regional Service Centres in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America. The ICF has members in over 100 countries.
