Q: Is accreditation a must?
There are many accreditation bodies scattered throughout the world, all of which uphold somewhat the same standard of training. Our Core Program is accredited through the International Coach Federation (ICF) and stands as “Approved Coach Specific Training Hours.”.
Accreditation is different from certification in that it assures you, the prospective student, that the program has been assessed and reviewed for its inclusive content of the eleven core competencies and ethical standards as recognized and adopted by most world-wide coaching organizations.
Program accreditation is not necessary for the life coach to begin and maintain a successful professional practice, however, generally speaking, an accredited program is generally considered the program of choice as the quality of the program is carefully scrutinized.
