COMING SOON: ICF Advanced Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC)

Team coaching is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the coaching profession, and it requires a specific set of competencies and knowledge. To address the increasing demand for this complex discipline, coaching education providers will soon be able to apply for ICF Advanced Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC). 

With the AATC, education providers will be able to demonstrate that their education meets the necessary requirements needed to prepare coaches for this complex discipline. Plus, this accreditation aligns with the requirements of the ICF Advanced Certification in Team Coaching, so individual coach practitioners will have a straightforward, simple education path towards achieving this advanced certification. 

The application for the AATC will open in early 2023. To be notified when the application opens, please complete our interest form.
