Get Your ICF Accreditation through the Center for Executive Coaching

If you want to receive an ICF certification, we offer an efficient, flexible path for you to complete the required live hours of training. While we match other ICF coaching programs that offer training in the core competencies that the ICF requires, our training goes far beyond. The ICF accreditation alone is not enough to show you how to be credible as a coach, attract clients (whether as an internal or external coach), keep clients for a long time, and deliver measurable results that will put you in the top 5% of coaches worldwide.

The Center for Executive Coaching is different because our curriculum, processes, and ongoing support helps you succeed beyond adding some letters next to your name.

It takes 6 to 9 months to complete the program, depending on whether you attend our in-person seminar. You attend any of our three live one-hour teleclasses that we have each week. Each call stands on its own. If you miss one, jump on the next. The ten hours of mentor coaching required by the ICF also takes place by teleclass, and is offered every quarter. It is led by Sheri Boone, MCC, who specializes in mentor coaching and knows the ICF core competency markers cold. We also match you up with fellow participants to help you complete the coaching hours required by the ICF. By working with other coaches in our programs that counts as paid coaching hours with the ICF? In other words, we help you get your coaching hours much more quickly with our coach matching process!

Earn your ICF Certification through our Online Program or by attending our Seminars.
