ICF CCE (International Coach Federation Continuing Coach Education) units are an essential component of professional development for coaches.
These units measure the coach’s ongoing commitment to enhancing their coaching skills and knowledge. Each unit represents 1 hour of coach-specific training that aligns with ICF’s core competencies and code of ethics.
Credentialed coaches must acquire 40 CCE units over three years to renew their credential.
Attending workshops, webinars, conferences, and other educational events that offer CCE units provides coaches with opportunities to earn CCE units. Self-study materials can also be eligible for CCE units. By actively engaging in CCE activities, coaches can continually enhance their coaching skills, deepen their understanding of various coaching methodologies, and stay informed about emerging trends in the field.
