Professional coaching is flourishing all over the globe, and in turn, so is the field of coach training. To ensure quality training, the International Coach Federation accredits coach-training programs that meet its high standards. This accreditation provides coach-training programs, and those who complete them, with a competitive edge both in their content and stature. Coaches worldwide recognize ICF as an industry leader and turn to the Association for training and continuing education. Getting your coach training program accredited or approved by ICF will give you credibility and expose your program to a wider network of coaches through its listings and searches.
