ICF Accredited Coach Training

Earn your Professional Certified Coach (PCC) Credential

Our program – The Center for Coaching Mastery – is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) Which means that our program has reached the highest standard for professional coach training available in the world today. This means that you can earn the global standard certification – Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by completing our program and meeting the ICF “coaching hours” requirements.
ACTP logo symbolizes ICF Accreditation

The ICF was founded in 1995 by Thomas Leonard – who also created CoachVille in 2001 – and is recognized as the global leader in professional coaching certification.

Most people who pursue a career in coaching recognize that professional certification is important and most organizations around the world that hire coaches look for ICF Certified Coaches.

Two Pathways to Certification

The ICF offers two pathways to certification:

1) ACTP: The coach completes an “Accredited Coach Training Program” (like ours) and then supplies the ICF with the necessary documentation of coaching hours and a small fee to receive certification

2) Portfolio: The coach complete their coach training from one or several schools and then supplies the ICF with detailed documentation of training completed and documentation of coaching hours. Then the coach pays a fee to complete a testing process with ICF designated coaches.

The ICF offers three credentials: ACC, PCC, and MCC
