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: The Accademia del Coaching Prossemico (formerly known as “Roberto Rigati Coaching”) provides every student the training they need to reach the “ACC” ICF credential (First Level), with an excellent standard of performance and ethics, and to get successfully started in their business. The Accademia del Coaching Prossemico puts its focus on a solid, coherent technical-scientific knowledge and on a deep practical training, as it considers both of them as essential parts of a student’s education. The Accademia del Coaching Prossemico believes that, in order to be a coach, personal development is absolutely necessary: therefore, even requiring the student high standard of performance, it consider as essential a welcoming, nonjudgmental, generous approach in teaching, as well as a positive, collaborative group environment among the students. The Accademia del Coaching Prossemico conveys its entire education according to ICF Core Competencies and Code of Ethics, and its method (Coaching Prossemico) must be absolutely coherent with them; in fact, it requires every student a deep comprehension and adherence to those principles. Our Scientific and Ethical Board is aimed to assess and ensure the coherency of the Accademia with these statements.
