Transcript requirement changes

The International Coaching Federation made a welcome announcement to transcript changes, effective July 1, 2020.

As an ICF Trained MCC, PCC and ACC Assessor, this will make our jobs easier, and have the potential to improve quality of feedback received by an Applicant. The quality of the transcript impacts the quality of feedback that can be given.

Here’s the official announcement from February 25, 2020:

ICF is committed to ensuring fairness and integrity in our review process for credentialing performance evaluations. To this end, we are refining our existing transcript format requirements for credentialing candidates on the following pathways:

  • ACC ACSTH
  • ACC Portfolio
  • PCC ACSTH
  • PCC Portfolio
  • MCC

Currently, transcripts submitted for performance evaluations are subject to the following requirements:

  • Your transcript(s) must be a verbatim, written word-for-word record of the coaching session(s) submitted.
  • Your coaching session transcript should include the full word-for-word conversation that took place between you and your client during your coaching session.
  • A reader of the transcript should be able to see who was speaking (the coach or the client) at any given time in the conversation.
  • Transcripts need to be in the same language used in your recording. If ICF does not offer performance evaluations in your language, then an English transcript must be provided.
  • Transcripts must be provided in PDF, MS Word, or a similar format.

Beginning July 1, 2020, at 12 Noon (New York), transcripts submitted for performance evaluations will be subject to the following requirements:

  • Your transcript(s) must be a verbatim, written word-for-word record of the coaching session(s) submitted.
  • Your transcript must indicate who is speaking—the coach or the client—at any time in the conversation. The transcript must list the coach’s statements and the client’s statements on separate lines.
  • Your transcript must include timestamps at every change in speaker (coach and client).
  • Transcripts need to be in the same language used in your recording. If ICF does not offer a performance evaluation in your language, you will need to submit a transcript with the language used in your recording and with an English translation of the transcript.
  • Your transcript must be provided in .DOC, .DOCX or similar word processing file format. Transcripts provided in PDF format cannot be accepted.

By refining our requirements for session transcripts, we’re demonstrating our continued commitment to positioning the ICF Credential as the gold standard for the coaching profession.

I have been trained by the ICF to assess using the PCC Markers. I also regularly assess for the ICF MCC and ACC credentials.

One of the unique offerings is an extensive library of MCC, PCC and ACC coaching sessions for participants to listen to, evaluate, debrief, and learn from, along with The Target Approach to demystifying the ICF core competencies. These are incredibly valuable learning tools, and will accelerate your understanding of competency distinctions.
