ACC ACSTH Path
If you use non-accredited training or Continuing Coach Education (CCE) as the start of your coach-specific training, you will need to apply via the portfolio path. You can only use a CCE program that has a minimum of 30 hours and is at least 80 percent core competency. If the non-accredited training you submit is not accepted as coach-specific training, you will need to complete additional client coaching hours. These additional hours of coaching experience must begin after the start of your coach specific training.
