International Coaching Qualifications
Don't settle for a piece of paper from a training company -
get an international accreditation
Brefi Group's coach training programs recognise the core competencies of the International Association of Coaching and the International Coach Federation.
Coach training programs in Africa, Middle East, India and South East Asia.
The Coach Certification Program recognises the IAC Coaching Masteries™ and the coaching core competencies of the International Coach Federation (ICF).
Candidates following Brefi Group's programs are specifically prepared for accreditation by the IAC because we believe that it is the most suitable initial professional qualification for coaches who wish to achieve an internationally recognised standard.
However, the program is also designed to fulfil the minimum 60 hours of coach specific training required by the ICF for those who wish to progress to Associate Certified Coach (ACC), which requires 100 hours of coaching experience, including at least eight clients, and documented 10 hours of work with a qualified mentor coach. Further progress to Professional (PCC) and Master Certified Coach (MCC) status requires 750 and 2,500 coaching experience hours respectively.
Reflections of a Corporate Coach, a personal collection of anecdotes and observations from Richard Winfield's 30-year career, provides an insight into personal development and positive thinking, and is a practical demonstration of the power of storytelling in corporate life.
Available as two Kindle books or a single paperback volume, it is the first collection of editorials inspired by the many people Richard Winfield has met, the events he has lived through and ideas that he has encountered since the launch of the CorporateCoach newsletter in 2001.
Every speaker, trainer and coach needs a fund of stories.
Stories from a Corporate Coach is a collection of 100 stories and more than 100 inspiring quotations designed to be used in a teaching context.
They have been collected by the author, Richard Winfield, during his career as a consultant, coach and trainer. He has made them short so you can easily adopt them and drop them into a talk or a coaching session; and has deliberately not explained their meaning.
The IAC certification process requires accomplished skill, and a thorough comprehension of that skill. Although no one particular coach training method is required, it?s essential that knowledge and application of these skill sets are mastered.
The first part of the certification process is an online test that evaluates your knowledge and awareness of the proficiencies, legal, and ethical standards. The second part involves the submission of recorded coaching sessions, where you demonstrate the practical application. The certifying board will evaluate how well you apply the standards in your recorded coaching sessions.

The ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential is for the practiced coach. It requires completion of a set amount of coach-specific training; a minimum of 100 coaching experience hours; and at least eight clients, among other requirements.
Those applying for the ACC credential, by submitting a portfolio application, are required to document 10 hours of work with a qualified mentor coach.
There is an expectation that all ICF Credentialed coaches will continue their education and build on their level of experience. The resulting growth in competency and professionalism will be evidenced by their journey to the MCC credential.
The following eleven core coaching competencies were developed to support greater understanding about the skills and approaches used within today's coaching profession as defined by the ICF. They will also support you in calibrating the level of alignment between the coach-specific training expected and the training you have experienced.
