Training Program Search Service (TPSS)

The TPSS is a free, searchable directory of coach training accredited by ICF. ICF-accredited training has gone through a rigorous review process and demonstrated that its curriculum aligns with the ICF definition of coaching, Core Competencies and Code of Ethics.

ACTP and ACSTH programs deliver foundational coach-specific training. Continuing Coach Education (CCE) offerings provide advanced learning opportunities for trained and credentialed coach practitioners.
