By becoming a member of the International Association of Coaching® you are declaring your commitment to the coaching profession and to the integration of coaching in other professions. You are also committing to the rigorous standards this unique brand of certification offers.
Since 2003, the IAC has attracted over 13,000 coaches interested in furthering the interests of coaching clients worldwide through a rigorous certification of coaches and the highest ethical, professional and business standards.
Coaching is a transformative process for personal and professional awareness, discovery and growth. As coaching grows, evolves and transforms, the need for a certification designed to specifically advance coaching to the highest standards of universal excellence becomes more important.
The IAC recognizes that many professionals from various industries are transitioning into coaching, or use a coaching approach a variety of ways in their business or practice. Our certification therefore does not require a set number of training hours in order to assimilate coaching skills, or necessitate logging coaching hours. Our certification is based on an understanding of coaching, and demonstration of coaching mastery.
The IAC Masteries were created with this in mind, whereby who, how or where you coach is not relevant to coaching masterfully. The Masteries are internationally created coaching touchstones, which can be applied to a variety of situations with the goal of empowering, expanding and providing limitless, though pertinent, opportunities for the client.
