To ensure the integrity of ICF-accredited organizations and protect consumers of coaching education, ICF Coaching Education has an Accreditation Complaint process.
ICF-accredited coaching education organizations are obliged to follow a stringent Code of Conduct. Through the Accreditation Complaint process, ICF Coaching Education reviews, investigates and responds to alleged breaches/violations of the ICF Accreditation Code of Conduct for accredited providers, as well as to concerns regarding the integrity of an accredited program’s curriculum.
Download the ICF Code of Conduct below.
Complaints ICF Coaching Education does not handle include:
Complaints against accredited providers may only be lodged by ICF Members, ICF Credential-holders or individuals currently or previously affiliated with an ICF-accredited organization (complainant must be able to provide proof of relationship).
Before submitting a complaint, please download and review the sample complaint form available below. Please submit your complaint using the online form below.
If you have any questions regarding the Accreditation Complaint process, please contact the ICF Coaching Education team by visiting the ICF Support page.
ICF’s Ethical Conduct Review (ECR) process provides a forum where individuals can bring complaints about alleged breaches of the ICF Code of Ethics by ICF Members and ICF Credential-holders. Follow the link below to learn more about the ECR process.
