ICF Credentials and Standards is excited to announce it will launch an updated ICF Credentialing exam in early 2022. The updated exam will feature approximately 200 scenario-based, multiple choice questions designed to assess a coach’s knowledge and ability to apply the ICF Core Competencies.

This exam will be offered through a more secure delivery format that increases the credibility and integrity of the exam and meets global standards for professional certification.

With this new exam, ICF Credentials and Standards is enhancing the quality of the ICF Credentialing process and preserving and increasing the value of ICF Credentials today and for years to come.

    Are credentialing exams for ACC and PCC different set of questions?

    As a director of two coach training programs I would appreciate a more definitive date for when the new test will begin. It is hard to keep telling students it is changing but ICF doesnt know when. It is also trying to guess what test the student will take…old core competencies or new. Thanks.
