What is an ICF Coaching Certification?

An ICF Coaching Certification is better knows as a coaching credential. ICF awards three levels of coaching credentials- ACC, PCC, and MCC. They can be earned by completing an ICF-accredited training, being mentored by an ICF coach, practicing over 100 hours of coaching, and passing the ICF coaching assessment.

To apply for an ICF coaching certification (credential), once you have met the application requirements, you will pay between $300 – $775 depending on the level of credential and the application path you are using.
