(Because the world needs more coaches) "Excellent coaching is like grace: Rarely intrusive, usually disruptive, more nuanced than announced, and as much about how as about what."

The Related Costs for Becoming Certified by the International Coach Federation
Some of the coaches we train are not aiming at Certification with the ICF (at least initially). For those who are, these are the additional costs to budget for:
In addition to the seven hours of group mentor coaching that are completed in Module II, three more hours must be completed individually with an ICF-credentialed coach prior to applying for certification. These sessions are available from SeattleCoach faculty members at a student rate of $250 per session through the end of 2021. And as a member of the SeattleCoach Network, discounted individual coaching and mentor coaching stay available to SeattleCoaches for as long we we’re in business.
ICF Membership: $245
The cost of the exam: $300 for ICF members. $500 for non-members.
