Why do you need to be accredited as a Coach?

The world of coaching is changing with incredible speed. Accreditation is becoming much more important. We are sure in the near future, all coaches will need to be aligned to one of the main accreditation bodies in order to practice.  Reviewing current thinking in coaching, the ICF have produced three statements that they believe are future trends for coaching, we have reprinted the third statement here:

“Confirmation of Qualifications by the ICF

Coaching remains an unregulated industry, but it is moving toward becoming more mainstream every day. For this reason, quality assurance is becoming a priority for businesses and individuals who hire coaches.

When coaching was initially on the rise, credentials and qualifications were an optional bonus rather than a requirement. Now, this tendency has shifted as more clients request confirmation of qualifications when hiring coaches”.

This has certainly been our experience and the experience of those we work with.”


Now is the time to ensure your qualifications and credentials are aligned with your excellent practice.

If you are new to coaching, you will be adopting best practice from the start of your career by aligning with one or more accreditation bodies; or if you are a seasoned coach wanting to stay relevant and informed as coaching strides forward – gather together your experience and wisdom to ensure you are not left behind.

All our accredited programmes have been written specifically with the ICF, EMCC and AC in mind. All programmes elements ensure you are able to apply for the level of accreditation you need, once you have attained the coaching hours required.

For those of you who are hoping to transfer other coach training programmes hours – the ICF issue all accredited providers with guidelines for how to manage the transfer.  Unless you can demonstrate you have completed coach training at the standards required by the ICF – only 1/3 of the hours count. This is important for you to know and why we have made sure our main programmes are treble accredited – you will not get caught out with our programmes.

All accreditation bodies have specific requirements to be eligible to apply for their credential. We would encourage you to visit their respective websites to ensure you have the specified number of coaching hours (paid or unpaid), the required hours of working with a Mentor Coach and/or a Coach Supervisor (our programmes are able to offer this service). 

                              Get in touch to see how we can best support you to make accreditation easy.

Our programmes meet the high standards of the ICF and we have easily achieved the requirements of Level 1 and Level 2 accreditation. This means you will have the right coach training to apply for a ACC or PCC with the ICF when you complete our training. 

AC have three different accreditation pathways that match our programme Structure. AACT (Accredited Award in Coach Training) which is our Professional Certificate in Executive Coaching, ACCT (Accredited Certificate in Coach Training) which is our Practitioner Diploma and the ADCT (Accreditation Diploma in Coach Training) which is our Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Coaching.

EMCC have two EIA accreditations matching our programme structure. EMCC Practitioner which is our Practitioner Diploma in Coaching (Level 5) and this is a full practitioner programme not just hours towards) and Senior Practitioner (which is our Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Coaching). Both programmes have the EQA standard required for coach education.
