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:
Emergenetics International is a global, organizational development consulting company with a global network of Distributors and Associates dedicated to realizing the potential of people in organizations, the community and at home. We are experts in the way people think, behave, and communicate and we apply this to every facet of the way individuals work and the way people understand themselves.
Emergenetics provides a basis to learn and apply new insights and self-awareness in work and personal environments, equipping individuals to successfully manage challenges, utilizing diverse thinking and behavioral preferences in the areas of leadership, teamwork, and talent development. Through the Emergenetics® Profile assessment, workshops and digital resources, we help develop these skills and build productive, engaging workplace cultures.
A key component of the Emergenetics experience is the Emergenetics Profile, a psychometric test developed to distinctively measure how people think and behave. The Emergenetics Profile provides people with a personalised understanding of how they prefer to approach work and life, and with this insight, personal strategies can be developed to enhance self-awareness, communication, collaboration and problem-solving competencies.
Human resources professionals, coaches, trainers, counsellors, leaders and managers can rely on the Emergenetics Profile to support their clients and colleagues to achieve their personal and team objectives.
Our Science Sets Us Apart
The science behind Emergenetics uncovers new and unexpected ways of understanding and interacting with the people who are a part of your world. To ensure our science remains reliable and valid, a subset of our raw data, which includes more than one million Profiles, is converted to global norms that we review biennially. This information is shared in the Emergenetics Technical Report.
Participants who successfully complete the Emergenetics coursework also learn about the field of social neuroscience and how this field of study strengthens the application of Emergenetics theory in understanding self and others’ preferences in communicating.  Whitepaper: Connecting Social Neuroscience and Emergenetics Theory: Understanding Self and Others.
