College of Executive Coaching's "Certified Personal and Executive Coach" Program has been accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). All our courses count toward ICF certification and our 128-Hour program is an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program. Accreditation is awarded to programs that meet the rigorous professional standards for coach training programs established by the ICF. Graduation from an accredited program will meet the ICF's requirements for individual coach certification for student contact learning hours, mentor coaching, and passage of an ICF approved exam at the PCC level. ICF requires all accredited programs to state the following: "Accreditation does not warrant or guarantee the effectiveness of the training or the student's ability to build a successful coaching practice."
