ICF accredited coach training program by a certified MCC for ICF credentialing
and their renewal
An ICF (International Coaching Federation) accredited coach training program is
required by all those looking to apply for or renew their ICF credentialing for ACC
(Associated Certified Coach), PCC (Professional Certified Coach) or MCC (Master
Certified Coach), or either through ACSTH or Portfolio paths. An ICF accredited coach
training program offers professional insights to aspiring ICF coaches, and aids in
achieving and demonstrating the highest standards of ICF competencies and code of
conduct. Above all, an ICF accredited coach training program aims to align a coach’s
capability with the ICF core competencies of coaching.
An ICF accredited coach training program is an essential requirement for ICF
credentialing. Certification is just the first step towards one’s career as a professional
coach. The final step is getting a coaching credential from the International Coaching
Federation. For that, a mentee-coach must complete 10 hours of group mentor
coaching from a certified mentor coach. 10 hours of group mentor coaching should be
spread over a minimum period of three months.
Group and personalized mentor coaching
Out of these 10 hours for ICF group mentor coaching, 3 hours must be one-on-one with
the coach mentor, while 7 hours are in group coaching to count towards the ICF
mentoring requirement. Jennifer Powers is an MCC and certified mentor coach who is
