News from ICF Global
Global Coaching Survery - Logo
Help ICF and our research partners at PwC make the 2019 Global Coaching Survey the largest study of the coaching industry to date. Take the survey today, and encourage the coaches in your ICF Chapter to do the same. Don’t forget: If our ICF Chapter is located in a locale that achieves 100 or more completed surveys, you’ll gain access to locally specific research data when the study is published next year.  Learn more.  Congratulations our chapter is part of the California location that has achieved more than 100 responses to the survey!  Let's keep it going, this helps with the progression of our profession as Coaches.

ICF Updates Core Competency Model

On November 14, all ICF Members will receive an email from ICF’s Credentialing, Accreditation and Coaching Science teams regarding the outcomes of our rigorous job analysis process. The updated ICF Core Competency model reflects the collective insights and wisdom shared with us through this comprehensive research initiative.  Ultimately, this updated Core Competency model will serve as the basis for the ICF Credentialing process through the launch of a new credentialing assessment reflecting the revised competencies. ICF anticipates a lengthy transition process, and we are targeting early 2021 for the launch of the new assessment.

You can view the changes at one of the two broadcasts listed.

Credential Holders Update
28,448: ICF Credential-holders 
509: ICF Credential applications approved in September 2019


In May, ICF launched a new software platform designed to make it easier than ever for coaches to apply for and renew their credentials. With the new platform, coaches are able to: initiate and access a credential application or renewal application via their profile on the ICF website; complete applications over time, instead of all at once; monitor application status in real time; and begin logging CCEs toward renewal at any time after earning a credential. More information is available at

Part of the re-credential requirement is 3 CCEU's in Ethics.  Here is a free course ICF Global is offering to meeting the requirements.
