COACH U CERTIFIED GRADUATE (CUCG)
COACH U CERTIFIED GRADUATE (CUCG)

  Below are the requirements for the Coach U Certified Graduate (CUCG) designation. The requirements for this designation are demanding and represent very stringent standards. This final step in your graduation process is approved by Coach U and qualifies you to apply to the ICF for certification under the Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) provision.

Coach U Certified Graduate (CUCG) Requirements:

Application for certification must include all of the information requested and meet the requirements listed below:

CHECK LIST AND LETTER OF APPLICATION

  • Submit an application check list and a cover letter of application which includes an essay titled "Why I believe I am qualified and should be awarded this designation".


COMPLETE ADVANCED COACHING PROGRAM - COACH U GRADUATE (CUG) 

  • Successfully completed the basic graduation requirements from Coach U's Advanced Coaching Program.
  • Be a Coach U Graduate. This represents at least 175 hours in formal classes, plus fieldwork.
  • You need to submit a copy of your graduation notice from Coach U or a statement that you are a Coach U Graduate. You do not need to submit a copy of your transcript as that is in the Coach U database.

EVIDENCE OF COMPETENCY

  • Complete all web-based core module exams, obtaining a score of 80% or better on each test. 
  • Two letters of recommendation from ICF PCC or MCC certified coaches. (Your mentor coach letter can count as one of these two letters. Note: These coaches must have actually heard you coach. [Their letter should state that they have observed you coach.] )
  •  Answer three case-study questions, in essay form. (These will be provided after application for certification has been received).

EVIDENCE OF STANDARDS/ETHICS

  • Be mentored for a minimum of six months by an ICF Certified Coach (PCC or MCC) for a total of at least 10 hours (additional fees required) .  
  • Review of  SIX (6) coaching sessions with actual clients by your ICF certified Mentor Coach or an ICF PCC or MCC certified coach with written feedback and assessment around the key coaching competencies provided. This 'coach the coach' mentoring may be done in person, via telephone, or review taped coaching sessions. Overall verification and recommendation to be submitted in written form by the Mentor Coach or ICF MCC  or PCC coach.  Note: Review feedback on the session must be provided to you in written form by the coach doing the review and included as part of your application.
  • Applicant must agree to uphold the Ethics and standards set forth by Coach U and by the International Coach Federation (ICF). A statement by both you and your Mentor Coach verifying that you are honoring the principles, ethics and standards of the coaching profession.


EVIDENCE OF EXPERIENCE

  • Have coached at least 20 clients, for a minimum of 500 hours. For this purpose, ninety (90) percent of the client hours must be earned with clients generating net income. A maximum of 10%, not to exceed 50 hours, pro-bono coaching will be counted.
  • This is to be submitted as a Coaching Time Log in e-mail format.[Note: If the coach is not in private practice and works for a company in which they are coaching internally, the 500 hour requirement still applies, but client number may vary]. A coaching relationship must be established and cannot be anyone over whom you have supervisory responsibility. Coaching hours can be calculated as: number of clients over a period of time, multiplied by actual time coached for each, to equal at least the required minimum. Note dates you first began coaching as a business and how many clients you have coached total, during that time. If the form of your coaching is with teams/groups, then note the amount of groups and number of participants in each group you have actually worked with and the actual number of hours coached (count the time coached the same as with an individual). [Note: Time being coached or participation in coach training classes, does not count toward the time that you coached, nor does the delivery of training programs.]


EVIDENCE OF COACHING ABILITY

  • Successfully complete an Interview/Examination conducted by the Certification Review Committee. Focus will be on Coaching competencies, tools, skills, communications, distinctions and coached/coaching experience. The oral review will also include an actual coaching session.
