Coach Certification and ICF Credentialing Made Simple!
International Coach Federation (ICF)
Approved Coach Specific Training Program (ACSTH)
What is ICF?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the leading global community for advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches.
After the successful completion of all three training weekends, and a minimum of 30 hours of coaching practice outside of class, students will received official documentation of their Authentic Leadership Coaching Certification, which represents 94-hours of ICF Coach Specific Training and can be used towards the ICF ACSTH Application Process to obtain Associate Certified Coach (ACC) distinction. Our program is recognized by the International Coach Federation (ICF) as Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH), which provides students with 94 training hours towards obtaining their ICF credential.
The Path to ICF Credentialing
The ACSTH Application Process towards obtaining Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential is significantly more cost effective than the ACTP Path. Most coaches save several thousands of dollars by taking the ACSTH route.
