This is where you’ll find documents provided by the ICF for credentialing as well as stuff we’ve put together for you. Please let us know if there is anything we’ve missed adding, or you know there is a more recent version of.

The ICF now provides a PDF pro-forma copy of each credential application. Please go to the ICF website, click on Individual Credential, and go to the credential you are applying for, where you’ll see the button that says Download Sample Application.

We recommend you use that sample document to collect all of the information you need for your application, and only when you have all the information (including your recorded coaching session/s) then you purchase and fill in the online application form. This will minimize the potential for your partially filled in online application form information disappearing. We’ve had reports of this happening.
