ICF Certified Coach Training

Training for and achieving your professional ICF accreditation is an integral part of your coaching profession. We have made the whole process of ICF certified coach training as plain and simple as possible for you.

Your Commitment to Coaching

Achieving your ICF certified coach training with the ICF (International Coach Federation) proves to potential clients your commitment to the coaching field and shows your industry-wide credibility and qualification. Here are a few factors about why coaching certification is so important:

  • Surveys tell that 84% of clients prefer certification as a professional standard of quality assurance
  • Certified coaches nearly always have a higher income than non-certified coaches
  • Clients who have sessions with ICF certified coaches report a better experience and are twice as likely to recommend their coach to others

Due to the fact that we regulate standards, techniques and core competencies for ICF certified coach training, the International Coach Federation makes sure that business coaches, life coaches, and executive coaches are experienced, reliable and integral professionals who follow a strict code of ethics. There are 3 levels of coaching certification that ICF offers - ACC, PCC and MCC. (You can read about each level at the bottom of this page).

Being a world-wide recognised and ICF-accredited coach training institute, Erickson's ICF certified coach training programs are highly esteemed as going above and beyond the strict standards of the ICF and turning over highly-qualified coaches. Since achieving ICF certification is so important to your coaching profession, we have made the route to certification as plain and simple as possible.
