IIC&M Accreditation is available for all coaches who want to demonstrate their quality through an internationally recognised coaching standard.  Each coach – new or existing – will be awarded their accreditation when they have demonstrated that they meet the accreditation requirements established by the IIC&M.

The purpose of Accreditation

The purpose of Accreditation is to:

  • re-inforce coaching as a professional industry.
  • demonstrate that, as an industry, coaching is able to validate its professionalism through the independent requirements defined in each accreditation level.
  • assure the individuals and organisations that are hiring coaches, that those coaches awarded an Accreditation have met or exceeded the accreditation requirements defined for that specific level of accreditation.
  • assure the individuals and organisations that are hiring coaches, that those coaches have been trained through an independently verified course or workshop which has been awarded an Accreditation level which demonstrates that they have met or exceeded the accreditation requirements defined for that specific level of course accreditation.
  • assure the students who are selecting a coach training course that the course has received an independent verification which has been awarded an Accreditation level which demonstrates that they have met or exceeded the accreditation requirements defined for that specific level of course accreditation.

The Accreditation process

The Accreditation process …

… is a rigorous process and one that ensures the acceptance only of those coaches that have the highest standards; and it is a matter of pride that the IIC&M will only accredit coaches that meet all our standards.  Each coach meets the IIC&M’s Core Competencies and signs the Declaration of Integrity agreeing to abide by and uphold the IIC&M’s Standards and Ethics.

… is a three step process:

  1. verification of your documentation
  2. skills assessment with one of the IIC&M’s Skills Assessors
  3. submission of your written requirements.

Apply for your Accreditation:

IIC&M Accreditation is available for all coaches who want to demonstrate their training and experience with an internationally recognised coaching standard and who have met the accreditation requirements established by the IIC&M.

Your accreditation assessment is based upon your ability as a coach, your competence levels when you are coaching, and your capability to work with your clients to move them forward in their chosen topic.

The IIC&M does not work in competition with other international accreditation/credentialing/professional/trade organisations, but co-operates with and supports all organisations that have the same purpose in mind.  We encourage coaches to be recognised by their Accreditation Body and more than one of their Professional/Trade Bodies.  It is for this reason that the IIC&M recognises the accreditations/credentials awarded by these organisations:

Accredited through the AC (Association for Coaching)

The awards from the Association for Coaching translate loosely to the IIC&M’s accreditation, where the IIC&M usually requires a higher number of coach specific training hours, so any evidence of training you have completed would be beneficial to your application.

    • Written Submissions
    • Any other documentation that is relevant to your accreditation

The IIC&M offers two levels of proficient membership

The IIC&M offers two levels of proficient membership:

  • Accredited Members
  • Professional Members.

After you have gained your Accreditation, the IIC&M offers a further level of proficient membership – Professional Coach (IIC&M).

As a Coach wanting to attract more clients, the IIC&M has an independently established accreditation level to suit your knowledge and experience, from Accredited Practitioner Coach (IIC&M) available to those who have just finished their training to Accredited Fellow Coach (IIC&M) available to those who have a long-standing reputation in the coaching industry.

The IIC&M have long recognised that CPD forms part of the accreditation process.  However, it also recognised that in developing skills and knowledge for accreditation, CPD was almost an inevitable aspect.  Therefore, how best to identify those coaches and mentors who, after accreditation, continued to develop their competence?  The answer was the introduction of the ‘Professional’ level for coaches.  This recognises those individuals who continue to develop their professional capabilities for the benefit of their clients as well as themselves.

Accreditation Requirements Information and Explanatory Notes

Please see Accreditation Requirements Information for summary information about each element of your accreditation application requirements.

Please see the Explanatory Notes for detailed information about each element of your accreditation application requirements.

Further information

Accreditation, once granted, remains with the Coach for the length of the time that the Coach remains a member of the IIC&M. To retain your accreditation your annual fee becomes application from one year after your initial application.

Once accredited, you can demonstrate your on-going CPD annually which allows each Accredited Coach (IIC&M) to be awarded their Professional Coach (IIC&M) representation. This is your next step.
