Accreditation Transition

Now Available: Transition Applications for Current Accredited Providers

The next step of the ICF Accreditation’s evolution is here! If you are already an accredited provider, you may now begin the process of transitioning to the updated accreditation structure. As a reminder, we are updating ACTP and ACSTH accreditations with levels that are aligned to the ICF Credentialing pathways. Find more detailed information on these updates on the Evolution of Accreditation page.

Start Your Transition

1. Complete the Transition Application

Two separate applications are available, based on your current ICF Accreditation:

  • ACSTH → Level 1
  • ACTP → Level 2

Applications may be submitted any time before December 31, 2022. When you submit is up to you – we want you to decide when it’s best for you. And we will be here to support you when the time comes. Please note, however, that applications are processed in the order they are received.

2. Read Your Individualized Transition Plan

If you haven’t already, you will soon receive and email from ICF with the details of your individualized transition plan. This plan identifies all you will need to do to meet the updated standards and requirements by December 31, 2022. Our team will also be following up with you to answer questions and help you get started.

If you have questions about the transition process, please contact Rockelle Ward, Director of Global Accreditation.
