M e r at a glance

M.E.R. at a glance


Why is the icf doing this

Why is the ICF doing this?

  • Support for the ICF as the leading coaching organization in the world.

    • “…ICF members represent the highest quality in professional coaching.” (ICF Strategic Plan)

  • Raises the standard for the profession overall (recognition that coaching does involve specific competencies and training).

  • Provides a level of quality assurance for purchasers of coaching services from ICF member coaches.


What s in it for me

What’s in it for me?

  • Individual members benefit from:

    • Increased credibility;

    • Being sought after as a member of the world’s leading coaching organization;

    • Being part of the trusted “go-to-place” for coaching inquiries from news media, schools, and potential clients; and

    • “A rising tide lifts all our boats.”


What do i need to do

What do I need to do?

  • If you have a current ICF Credential:

    • Do nothing and renew your membership

  • If you don’t have a credential, but have completed at least 60 hours of coach-specific training:

    • Do nothing and renew your membership


What do i need to do1

What do I need to do?

  • If you have not yet completed 60 hours of coach-specific training:

    • Current members have until April 1, 2013 to complete 60 hours.

    • New members to the ICF need to declare enrolment in an ICF approved (ACTP or ACSTH) - 60 hours minimum - coach-training program – as of April 1, 2012


How do i get the 60 hours

How do I get the 60 hours?

  • Ensure the coach-training program meets the ICF requirements:

    • ICF ACTP program: Yes (automatic 125 hours minimum)

    • ICF ACSTH program: Yes, if it’s at least 60 hours of training!

    • ICF CCE program: Yes, you need 60 hours total AND

      • All hours approved in Core Competencies will be accepted; and

      • A maximum of 12 hours outside of the Core Competencies will be accepted.

    • Check the training program search service:

      http://www.coachfederation.org/icfcredentials/program-search/


How do i get the 60 hours1

How do I get the 60 hours?

  • Ensure the coach-training program meets the ICF requirements:

    • Non-ICF approved program: Ensure it is training that is specifically marketed as teaching coaching skills, that teaches coaching skills or teaches how to apply technical skills in a coach-like manner and teaches coaching skills in accordance with the ICF Core Competencies.


Equivalency

Equivalency

  • ICF membership requirements may be met by a competence equivalency of coaching credentials awarded by other coaching associations. Learn more at: http://www.coachfederation.org/MER/.


More nuts and bolts

More nuts and bolts

  • At least 48 of the 60 hours must be:

    • Direct interaction with a trainer (voice-to-voice or in-person training; not cyber courses, mail-in courses, or self-study).

    • From a program other than ICF conference, SIG, Virtual Education, or chapter events.

    • Teaching the ICF Core Competencies (all Core Competencies must be covered).

    • The remaining hours may be self-study, from an ICF event, teaching coaching-related topics, or a combination. However, all hours must be part of a program with the purpose of training coaches.


Even more nuts and bolts

Even more nuts and bolts

  • Training that is accepted as coach specific training:

    • Training from an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) or a program that has received the ICF Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) designation

    • Training from a Continuing Coach Education (CCE) Provider, subject to these limitations:

      • All hours approved in Core Competencies will be accepted

      • A maximum of 12 hours outside of the Core Competencies will be accepted

    • Training that is specifically marketed as teaching coaching skills, that teaches coaching skills or teaches how to apply technical skills in a coach-like manner and teaches coaching skills in accordance with the ICF Core Competencies


Myths

Myths

  • I need to have an ICF Credential (ACC, PCC or MCC) to retain ICF membership.

    • You need 60 hours of coach-specific training.

  • I need to send in all my certificates, diplomas, CCEU documents, etc.

    • You need to declare / attest to your level of training and/or credential – keeping in mind that mis-representation of qualifications is prohibited by our ICF Code of Ethics!
