Deciding to pursue the ICF credential is an exciting and fulfilling endeavor. We’re here to guide you on your journey to becoming an ACC-certified coach with all of the tools, support, and resources you need in one streamlined process.

Bundled in the Fast Track to ICF Credential package are all the programs you will need to achieve the required 60 hours of Approved Coach Specific Training Hours for ACC accreditation, plus 7 hours of group mentor coaching that can be completed within six months. The Fast Track to ICF Credential takes you from A to ACC conveniently.

The Fast Track to ICF Credential program bundles two crucial parts — FAST Education and Certification TRACK. Together these cover the education hours, mentor coaching, and performance evaluation required to earn an ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential.

FAST Education provides the needed ICF approved Coach-Specific-Education hours, plus 7 hours of Group Mentor Coaching AND 3 hours of one-to-one Mentor Coaching. Typically, can be completed in around six months. You graduate from this part as a COTBx (Coaching Out of the Box) Certified Graduate Coach.
Certification TRACK provides the guidance to obtain the required 100 hours of documented coaching experience, plus the creation of a recording and transcript of your coaching required for the Performance Evaluation submission to one of our ICF trained Assessors. We help you fill in and complete the detailed online application and complete submission to the ICF.
Completion of our Fast Track to ICF Credential program, provides 116.9 hours of ICF Accredited Coach-Specific-Education AND a designation of having completed an ICF Level 1 Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP), which is needed to apply for your credential.
