  2. Submit a pre-recorded session and a transcript that meets the ACC Markers

  3. Complete at least 60 hours of coach specific education or training

Graduates from our program can also apply for the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) International Coaching Federation (ICF) Credential using the PCC Portfolio Path if they:

  1.  Pass the ICF's Coach Knowledge Assessment with a score of 70% or higher

  2. Submit a pre-recorded session and a transcript that meets the PCC Markers

The IFCE also plans to apply for the Level 2 Coaching Program Accreditation from the ICF in May 2022, following graduation of our Inaugural Cohort. Pending receipt of our accreditation, students will be able to apply for the ACC or PCC Credential using the ACTP pathways. You must still meet the above ICF requirements, but providing a pre-recorded session would not be required and the review timeline is faster and the cost is lower.

Please refer to the ICF website for more information and updates on the credentialing process.
