Continuing Coach Education (CCE) is intended for third party training providers who are interested in having their training program accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). CCE is considered supplemental and advanced education for those wishing to acquire new learning and/or those who are renewing their ICF Credential.
Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units are earned upon completing Continuing Coach Education. CCE units are awarded in two categories: Core Competencies and Resource Development.
- Core Competencies: Advanced coach training that directly relates to or expands upon the ICF Core Competencies.
- Resource Development*: Training in skills that contribute to the professional development of a coach (e.g. personal development, coaching assessments or tools, business building, or other material that falls outside of the ICF Core Competencies.)
*Click here if you are delivering training that only qualifies as Resource Development CCE.
