Robyn Logan untangles the jargon and process around Coach Certification. She discusses the different certification options, such as ACSTH, CCE and ACTP and then look at how they relate to the different applications for coaching. And, lastly, she look at what we consider to be vital considerations for anyone considering coach training.
Our coach training programs are accredited with the International Coach Federation (ICF). Coaching is a global profession and the ICF continues to be the most established and globally recognised peak body. Not only do they provide high standards and competencies for coaching and coach training, clients also want to know they are employing someone who has been through a rigorous training and accreditation process.
Accreditation indicates that a school has had their program undergo rigorous external scrutiny and quality testing by a peak body. The curriculum is mapped across core competencies, with the faculty, assessment and learning processes all assessed. Program accreditations at International Coach Academy include ACTP, ACSTH and CCE’s.
Certification is a globally recognized statement of attainment that indicates you have been assessed by an Accredited Coach Training Provider as having the industry recognized skills and expertise required to practice as a coach.
A credential designates a recognized level of expertise in coaching, as assessed by an industry peak body such as the ICF. This is represented by designations such as ACC, PCC or MCC.
