A continuación recogemos aquí la actualización especial que nos ha llegado de la ICF Global a cerca de las novedades en los criterios para la certificación de coaches.
A partir de abril 2014, con el fin de mejorar la calidad, el valor y el rigor del programa de acreditación, la ICF llevará a cabo cambios en el programa de acreditación, por ejemplo, en julio, ICF ha anunciado que todos los solicitantes deberán pasar un examen vía web.

Effective April 1, 2014, some requirements for an ICF Credential will be revised. In order to enhance the quality, value and rigor of the Credentialing program, the following program changes will be implemented:
ICF is also working on some other possible requirement changes. These include:
It is important to note that as the ICF continues work to enhance the credentialing program, standards for renewal of the Credentials may change. These changes could include additional hours of training in specific areas (ethics), new assessments or requirement for supervision. All changes are intended to improve the integrity, quality, and value of the credential offerings. These changes will always be announced well ahead of implementation with timelines that will allow all to comply.
As continual improvements are implemented, ICF is seeing a steady increase in user satisfaction and advocacy for the program. In 2013, ICF awarded 25% more Credentials than in 2012. Surveys also help ICF identify parts of the application process that need further improvement, which is why ICF is proactive in making program improvements.
As ICF continues to advocate for quality coaching through the ICF Credentialing program, we want to thank you for your commitment to the profession. Your Credential demonstrates your desire for continuous development and lifelong learning. May the ICF Credentialing journey bring you increased business opportunities, greater awareness of your skills and potential, and additional opportunities to help humanity flourish through coaching!

In service of humanity flourishing,
Credentialing is indeed imtrnpaot. We are professionals and want to be taken seriously. We learn coaching methodology during our training. The credentialing process confirms that we are educated and proceed with coaching in a consistently proper manner.Clients want to know that they are being coached competently. How will they know unless there is a system in place that confirms it? How would a client feel if their doctor, therapist or plumber were not credentialed or licensed? Additionally, grad schools are starting to offer degrees in coaching. Doesn’t that mean certification is definitely coming in the future?We work hard to get the proper training. We work hard to be the best for our clients. We work hard to be professionals and to be taken seriously. Why not get credentialed to prove to our clients and to ourselves that we are doing our best to be the best at what we do?
