Membership Moment

Since awarding the first-ever ICF Credentials in 1998, ICF has been committed to acknowledging the professional achievements of coach practitioners and to supporting their success by offering globally recognized, validated credentials. ICF is offering you a new, easier-than-ever way to verify that you meet the global Gold Standard as an ICF credentialed coach. We are pleased to provide this new service through our official digital credential provider, Credly’s Acclaim platform.

A digital badge offers you a simple, yet effective, way to distinguish yourself not only as a professional coach, but as an ICF Coach! Using your digital badge allows you to show your clients, employers, colleagues and friends: 

  • Your credential award date and date of expiration

  • The competencies you demonstrated to earn your ICF Credential

  • Each required step to earn your ICF Credential

  •  The work you do to maintain your Credential and stay fit for purpose as an ICF Credentialed coach

Watch your email for more information about how to receive and use your badge on your website, in your email, and on social media.
