The three major, international coaching certifying bodies are ICF, EMCC and CCE. Coacharya is accredited by all three.
Accredited by ICF
Accredited by EMCC
Accredited by CCE
International Coach Federation – ICF
The International Coach Federation seeks to Advance the Art, Science and Practice of Professional Coaching.
The International Coach Federation is the support network for these professional coaches. Whether it’s Life Coaching, Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching or any other skilled coaching, ICF leads the global community in advancing the profession. ICF helps serve the flourishing of humanity by using coaching’s creative and thought-provoking process to maximize professional and personal potential.
Through a worldwide network of professional coaches, ICF builds, supports and preserves this growing field, providing connections near and far.
European Mentoring & Coaching Council – EMCC
The EMCC exists to develop, promote and set the expectation of best practice in mentoring and coaching across Europe and beyond, for the benefit of society. Our vision is to be the “go to” body in mentoring and coaching.
Board Certified Coach (BCC) – Center for Credentialing and Education
The Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential is a mark of distinction for credential holders and a source of credibility for their clients. A BCC has met professional coaching competency standards established by CCE and subject matter experts.
The achievement of the Board Certified Coach credential solidifies the professional identity of the coach. The BCC credential is attractive to professionals who would like to provide independent third-party verification that they have achieved certain coaching competency standards.
