Credentialing Explained: Why You Want an ICF Credential and How to Get One

Coaches have a lot of questions about the ICF credentialing system. Coaching schools don’t really explain it, and at first glance the ICF Global website seems to make it look complicated. At Coaching in English, credentialing is a topic we often get questions about.

Masae Araki, a knowledgeable educator of coaches on topics like the ICF Code of Ethics and the Core Competencies, will bring her expertise to us to demystify the ICF credentialing system. At our gathering, Masae will:

  • Give background on the benefits of having an ICF credential
  • Differentiate the three ICF credentials of ACC, PCC, and MCC
  • Explain the different credential “tracks” and their requirements
  • Answer your questions

In this interactive information session, we’d also like to hear from coaches who already have a credential. How does your credential benefit you? And how did you find the application process? Coaches with credentials, please do attend and share your experience with those who are thinking about or have already begun the application process.

And, as usual, at our meeting, we will:

  • Coach each other
  • Give and receive feedback on coaching
  • Earn essential, but rare, Continuing Coach Education units

The Coaching in English Group is open to any coach or would-be coach of any nationality who uses or wants to use English professionally in their coaching sessions. Activities will be conducted in English. Please join us to meet other coaches working in English, earn CCEUs, and build a supportive professional community with an international flavor.
