In today’s complex workplace, organizations increasingly recognize the power of teams to innovate and drive their business or mission forward. Team coaching can help accelerate team performance and improve organizational results, and it is now one of the fastest growing disciplines in the coaching profession.
To address this increasing demand, ICF will launch two new team coaching offerings in early 2023. These offerings will bring visibility to team coaching competencies; set standards of practice; and build value, trust and integrity among clients and coaches alike.
ICF Advanced Certification in Team Coaching (ACTC)
ICF Credentials and Standards is pleased to announce that it will launch a new team coaching certification program in early 2023! Through the ICF Advanced Certification in Team Coaching (ACTC), coach practitioners will be able to demonstrate their advanced knowledge, skills and abilities in team coaching. To earn the ICF ACTC, team coach practitioners must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- An ICF Credential (ACC, PCC, or MCC) in good standing.
- A minimum of 60 hours of Team Coaching education.
- A minimum of five (5) team coaching engagements in the last five years.
- A minimum of five (5) hours of coaching supervision/guided reflective practice.

The application for the ACTC will be opening in January 2023, and details regarding the ACTC requirements are now available on our website.

ICF Advanced Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC)
Education is an important component to any coach’s development. Team coaching requires a specific set of competencies and knowledge, and coaches should have access to specialized education that they can trust in to develop this practice. Coaching education providers will soon be able to apply for ICF Advanced Accreditation in Team Coaching (AATC) through ICF Coaching Education.
Awareness of this accreditation will also be invaluable to coach practitioners pursuing the ACTC. You can trust in the fact that education with the AATC status aligns with requirements of the ACTC to ensure that coaches like you are well prepared for the complex discipline of team coaching.
You can learn more about the accreditation on our website and more information will be forthcoming, including when the application opens, in early 2023
