All JST Coaching & Training programs are accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE-Global). Each trainee must complete an individual application and meet the requirements as stated on the ICF or CCE-Global website
Each of the credentialing organizations have different requirements. Every applicant is required to complete a certain number of coach training hours, mentoring hours, client coaching hours, provide documentation and complete written and/or oral exams. This can be a confusing process and we are available by appointment to assist you in better understanding the details and choosing the right course for you.
At JST Coaching & Training, we provide a certificate of completion for each of the courses listed below, indicating the specific credit hours for each training. Graduates of Empowering Students Through Coaching can apply for an ICF ACC credential upon successful completion of both the in-class and self-study portions of the training and are not required to submit an additional performance evaluation to ICF as part of the application process.
Please be aware that not all coach training courses are approved for core competency hours required for a coaching credential. We have provided both the ACSTH and CCEU hours and the Core Competency (CC) hours below to assist you in choosing a course to meet your needs for credentialing or a credential renewal.

It is valuable for coaches-in-training to complete both life coach training (non-ADHD specific) and ADHD coach training.
