There are more than 100 ICF Accredited Coach Training Programs (ACTP) worldwide and there even more programs offering Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH).
There are also several avenues to becoming a coach and to achieving your ICF credentials. Visit the ICF’s Becomea.coach website to learn more about how to begin your journey to becoming a coach.
One of best ways to research which avenue and which program is the right one for you is to:
- follow the ICF link to search the programs,
- read up on the ones that appeal, and then…
- talk to coaches who are graduates of the program in your shortlist.
Obtaining your training from an accredited training program is the first step towards gaining an ICF credential. To research all available ICF Accredited Training Programs and ICF Approved Coach Specific Training Hours, visit the Training Program Search Engine on the ICF website.
