We say it takes up to 8 weeks to get fully accredited and the assessment is conducted in 2 parts.

Do I need to have a recognised coaching qualification?

Although a reputable Coaching qualification is desirable for each tier, it is not essential as each accreditation is supported by the coach’s portfolio, and client satisfaction.

If I don’t meet the criteria, will I lose my registration & fee?

No, your investment is safe. The qualifying criteria is a guideline, and we evaluate on a case-by-case basis - hence the need for an in person virtual meeting.
