Summary of certification requirements

Accreditation criteria

Candidates who complete the open Performance Coach Training Course or an in-house Culture at Work ILM Coaching & Mentoring Course, and successfully attain the appropriate assessment criteria described below, have a choice of five different types of coaching accreditation:

The entry requirement for all certificates is the CfPAC accreditation at (1), described further down this page. You can decide which type of certification to register for before or after you have completed the certification process at the end of your course. Whichever certificate you start with, you can apply for any of the others at a later date.

The practical learning is the same for all the certifications. The difference between the ILM levels lies in the amount of coaching practice required, the level of seniority at which you are coaching, and the written work delivered.

Detailed requirements for each type of certification are listed below. For CfPAC and ILM Recognised Certificate the requirements are the same:
