Credentialing Path

ICF’s Associate Certified Coach (ACC)

As an ACTP, ILCT students who are interested in pursuing the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential must complete 60 or more hours of coach-specific training before applying to the ICF for the credential through the ACC ACSTH Path.

Training begins with ILCT’s Foundational Course, followed by at least 20 hours of electives.

Before applying to ICF, students must meet other other ICF-specified requirements, including 100 hours of coaching experience, and 10 hours of mentor coaching, which may be done privately with an ICF credentialed coach or through our Mentor Coaching course. Please visit the ICF website to see the current requirements, which change periodically.

The cost for completing the coach training for the ACC, is approximately $4,180, which includes at least 10 hours of mentor coaching*, and will take about 6 - 8 months depending on the electives you choose.

The cost shown includes our Mentor Coaching class, plus two additional hours of individual mentor coaching. Cost may vary if you choose private mentor coaching.
