For more than a decade, the International Coach Federation (ICF) has spearheaded the development of professional coaching in the world. More than 20,000 coaches hold one of the three credentials: ACC, PCC, MCC.
Why is certification needed?
- Certified coaches demonstrate not only knowledge and skills, but also a commitment to high professional standards and a strong code of ethics.
- According to the ICF Global Coaching Study, certified coaches reported higher incomes than uncertified coaches.
- 84% of clients with coaching experience reported that it was important for them that the coach had ICF certification.
There are three credential levels
|ASSOCIATE CERTIFIED COACH (ACC)— demonstrates the initial level of knowledge and skills, applies them in coaching, and also understands the difference between the use of these skills in coaching and in other professions.|
|PROFESSIONAL CERTIFIED COACH (PCC) — demonstrates a steady mastery of coaching skills, but to some extent still depends on the techniques taught in the training course, is still learning to how to establish partnerships with clients and to focus all the learned techniques on behalf of the client. A PCC also shows a strong understanding of the specifics of coaching in comparison to other professions, and the ability to apply the acquired skills.
|MASTER CERTIFIED COACH (MCC) — demonstrates proficiency in coaching skills that allows the coach to establish fruitful partnerships with clients, to fully explore his skills and master them. An MCC also shows a strong understanding of the specifics of coaching in comparison to other professions, and the ability to apply the acquired skills.
