ICF ACC Certification

Level 1 program

To be able to obtain the full ICF accredited level 1 program, you will need the certification package.

In addition to having completed the Certificate in Coaching, to achieve this level of certification, you must:

  • Be able to document 100 hours of coaching
  • Have received a further three individual mentor coaching hours
  • Pass an oral evaluation (requires a recording of a 30-45 minute coaching session with full transcription)

If you would like the ACC Level 1 certification, you can purchase our certification package, which includes the three individual mentor coaching hours and the oral examination at the ACC level.

It is possible to take the certification examination with Expand after you have documented 40 hours of coaching. You will then be able to apply ICF for the ICF ACC certification once you have completed a total of 100 hours of documented coaching.

You will have to pay a fee directly to ICF (175 USD for members and 325 USD for non members) and pass an online multiple choice test when you apply (ICF credentialing exam). You can register for the ICF ACC certification any time, as it will be an individual certification process.
