Start your ICF accreditation journey today

Become an ICF recognised coach

To become an ICF recognised coach, you need to participate in an ICF accredited coach education program, like IECL’s. And at IECL, everything starts with the IECL Organisational Coaching Level 1 Certification course, which teaches you the essential foundational skills of organisational coaching including the tools, techniques and understanding of how to conduct high performance coaching sessions that get results. This course builds functional capability as well as competence and confidence in your coaching.

Level 1 Certification Completed

Once you complete Level 1 Certification, you are well on your way toward’s ICF’s ACC credential, and can start logging your coaching hours (you’ll need 100 hours of coaching logged to gain ICF’s ACC credential).

Level 1 Accreditation

After Level 1 Certification, your next step is IECL’s Level 1 Accreditation, which builds on IECL Level 1 Certification for a deeper understanding of coaching competencies and principles. This Accreditation provides valuable opportunities for additional learning, reflection, practice, feedback and mentoring. Through the Accreditation you will apply Level 1 Certification skills in practice, building greater confidence and capability in coaching.

Final Step

The final step in the IECL Level 1 Organisational Coach Education Pathway (ICF Level 1: ACC Journey) consists of one-on-one mentoring sessions and a final performance evaluation, to prepare you to apply to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) for your Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential. As an accredited provider of ICF Level 1, IECL has been approved to ‘sign off’ new coaches against the minimum skills requirements based on ICF’s core competencies for ACC.


IECL has been training organisational coaches since 1999 and has over 8,000 coach education alumni, worldwide. Even our competitors send their coaches to be trained by us! We have been an ICF Accredited provider of coach education since 2006. Our faculty are highly experienced, practicing organisational coaches themselves, and most of them are ICF PCC credentialed. They teach our highly refined curriculum from their own direct coaching experience, rather than from theory and textbooks alone.
