Three Program Paths To Explore

We can help you become credentialed through the three ICF credentialing paths – ACTP, ACSTH, or Portfolio. The programs outlined below meet and exceed the required education, class hours, and Mentor Coaching hours to apply for credentialing through ICF or to complete Mindfulness Coaching School’s Accredited Coach Training Program. Please visit ICF’s website to explore the various credentialing paths, and contact us for details.

Click the tabs below to explore the three most typical paths for accreditation through our school:

ACSTH ICF ACC: Associate Certified Coach

Tuition: $5,380
Includes 72 class hours and 10 Mentor Coaching Hours, making you eligible to apply for your ACC through ICF

Why go for the ACC?

Many view the ACC as putting your toe in the water of coaching.  With our ACC program you will learn the basics.  If you want to compliment your existing consulting, psychotherapy, or counseling businesses this is an excellent way to enter into the coaching field.  If you aren’t sure you want to be a coach the ACC Path is the best way to investigate.  It is also the path leading towards the PCC.

Minimum 72 class hours + 10 hours Mentor Coaching

Required Courses – 72 class hours + 10 hours Mentor Coaching
This meets and exceeds ICF’s requirements.
• S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming the Incredible Coach You Truly Are* – 24 hours

ACTP ICF PCC: Professional Certified Coach

Tuition: $8,430
Includes 125 class hours and 10 hours Mentor Coaching, granting you status as a Mindfulness Coaching School ACTP Graduate and eligible to apply for your PCC through ICF.

Why go for the PCC right off the bat?

Being a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) demonstrates the commitment to excellence beyond the basics in the coaching field. The ACTP PCC Path is filled with contemporary coaching classes along with a more direct and deepened coaching experience.  It is graduate level work.  If you are ready to become a stellar coach this is the path.

The PCC requires 500 coaching client hours.  However, don’t let that number sway you to “just” the ACC.  Why?
 
Because once you have completed 125 hours of coaching classes and acquired a minimum of 100 coaching client hours you are eligible to receive your ACC.  AND the beauty of the PCC Path is that once you have coached a total of 500 hours you may then acquire your PCC without any additional testing…oral or written.  Why?  Because you have met all the requirements!
As a PCC you can be proud of your education and experience.  I think of it as graduate level work…and so do businesses and organizations who hire PCC’s internally and externally.
 

Minimum 125 total class hours + 10 hours Mentor Coaching

Completing the PCC requirements also fulfills the 101 class hours required to become a Certified Mindfulness, Wellness & Somatic Coach through Mindfulness Coaching School. See below.
