Earlier this week, the International Coach Federation (ICF) awarded Birkman Signature Certification with credit hours for Continuing Coach Education (CCE). Introduced at the beginning of 2017, Signature Certification has already won a Bronze Quill Award from IABC for its eLearning modules. Now, this curriculum has passed the rigorous examination of the ICF Core Competencies and Code of Ethics to receive the CCE distinction.
ICF is the global leader in credentialing and developing professional coaches, dedicated to improving the coaching profession through educational offerings, upholding ethical standards, and industry research. The CCE accreditation is recognized internationally and designates supplemental and advanced training for coaches looking to achieve or renew individual credentialing through ICF. Birkman Certified Professionals (BCPs) who have completed Signature Certification after January 1, 2017 can now apply their Birkman learning experience to the requirements for obtaining or renewing their ICF credential.

This mission aligns perfectly with the coaching profession, and we’re glad that ICF recognizes the value in Signature Certification training and its curriculum.”
