The first step in the Accredited Coach Training Program is to register for and complete the Foundational Course.
Most ILCT courses meet the elective requirements for this credential
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. All ILCT electives are approved by the ICF. Please visit the ICF website to see the current requirements. Currently, no more than 20% of hours can be through self-directed courses and no more than 20% can be in resource development (marketing, assessments, etc).
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. Additionally, applicants will be required to provide a recording of their coaching and a transcript in English as part of the review, before they are able to sit for the examination required. 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 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.
