Coaching is an unregulated profession. That means that there are no national regulations regarding the standards and training in the field. Many coaches seek credentialing and abide by the standards of Professional Organizations, like the ICF, the International Coaching Federation, or the CCE, the Center for Credentialing and Education, which offers credentialing for people with prior university degrees.

I am holding the Board Certified Coach Credential, and I am well on my way to ICF-accreditation.
