Certified 'Bridging' Coach Program

Add your existing ACSTH Training to our Bridging Program and graduate from an ACTP (with direct pathway to ACC or PCC credentials)

There are many experienced coaches who have 60 + hours of "Coach Specific Training" and want to apply to the ICF for either ACC or PCC, but find they are limited to the time consuming ACSTH pathway.  They can now add their existing 60 ACSTH training to ICA's Professional Coach Training to achieve the ACTP Certified Professional Coach designation.  This provides the training, mentoring, observation,  and coaching you need to apply for an ICF credential via the time and cost efficient ACTP pathway.
