Beyond Alphabet Soup: Credentialing and the Evolving Coach

CCEUs- 1 Core, 1 RD

With all the abbreviations, the ICF credentialing process may make you feel lost in an alphabet soup.

In this session, we’ll clarify the three levels of credentialing, the credentialing process, and the various paths to credentialing. Additionally, we’ll explore the benefits of the credentialing process for the evolving coach and field, lending particular attention to the relationship between credentialing and ethics (1.1, 1.6, & 1.7) and coaching mindset (2.2 & 2.3).
