Education Search Service (ESS)

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) does not offer initial education and training to become a coach (we only offer professional development for practiced coaches). As the accrediting body for coach-specific education and accredited providers, we cannot recommend any specific coaching education organizations.

To ensure quality education, ICF accredits coaching education organizations that meet the high standards set forth by ICF and ICF Coaching Education. To find ICF-Accredited Providers we suggest that you use our Education Search Service (ESS) below. The search for a coach education program is a highly individual process that depends greatly on your personal preferences and goals. The ESS is designed to give you basic information about all ICF-Accredited Education Providers.


For further information, please contact this training organization rather than the ICF office. The ICF recommends all approved programs equally and cannot recommend one program over another.

Organization Description:
Menslab is a coach and training organization created by a group of professionals who share a passion for growth, evolution and a down-to-earth approach. A group of people who take the time to learn from experience, trying out new models and measuring themselves against models of excellence, to discover what works and to make improvements.
Our vision is that what is really needed for rapid and long-lasting evolution is exploration, understanding and integration of strategies and models of excellence to communicate, get organised, decide, and be creative. Making complex things simple so that anyone can use them immediately in their life and profession is our job, testing what has been learnt and achieving results is the job of our Clients!
We use the coaching approach in each activity we offer, so that our Clients become fully independent and learn how to produce results they want in their job and their life, following their own style.
We offer coaching and training about coaching, mentoring, supervision, strategic communication and systemic consulting to companies, organizations, individuals and teams. We also offer mentoring and supervision and we manage an international training program for mentor coaches and coaching supervisors.
