Coaching has turned into a $2 billion a year industry. The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the largest coaching association in the world with more than 40,000 members in 145 countries. The ICF began in 1995. Through research into best practices, the ICF created rigorous coaching and ethical standards. It certifies individual coaches and coach training programs, such as ours.
Our founder and President, Dr Keith Webb, has worked with the ICF for years as a chapter board member in Singapore and Seattle, and as well as the ICF Washington State Chapter President.
The ICF's coaching standards are strict. All of our coaching training is approved by the ICF as part of our Level 1 & 2 Certificate programs. As an approved training provider, all 214 hours of our training meet the ICF's strict professional coach training standards.
More than 450 Christian leaders we have trained have gone on to receive their ICF coach credentials. You can too.
Now the process is even more streamlined through our new Level 1 & Level 2 Certificate programs.
The ICF awards three individual credentials that build on one another. Each level has training and client coaching requirements.
Associate Certified Coach
Our Level 1 Coaching Mastery Certificate Program prepares you to apply for an ACC using the faster, easier, and cheaper ACC Level 1 application path.
Professional Certified Coach (PCC)
Our Level 2 Professional Coach Certificate Program prepares you to apply for a PCC using the faster, easier, and cheaper PCC Level 2 application path.
Master Certified Coach
Our Level 2 Professional Coach Certificate Program counts toward your training hours for a MCC using the MCC Portfolio application path.
If you have already done some training with us, take a look at the document(s) you received to determine which ICF application pathway to use.
1. If you graduated with a Level 1 or Level 2 Certificate, then you'll use the ICF ACC or PCC Level 1 or Level 2 application path.
2. If your training with us was from September 2011 to December 2022 and isn't a full Level 1 or Level 2 Certificate, then your courses were ACSTH and you'll use the ICF ACC or PCC ACSTH application path.
3. If your training with us includes courses from before September 2011, then those hours were not approved but can still be claimed using the ICF ACC or PCC Portfolio application path.
4. If your training wasn't only with us, look at the other certificate(s) you received. If all were ACSTH approved, then you'll use the ICF ACC or PCC ACSTH application path. If any were CCE or unapproved, then you'll use the ICF ACC or PCC Portfolio application path.
