Membership



More and more organisations and individuals are seeking the services of a professional coach and there is no doubt that many of them, especially organisations, are specifically looking for coaches who belong to, and follow the codes of conduct of, a professional body.  In addition, many service users will require sight of a certificate of professional indemnity insurance and insurers will most often require membership of a professional body as a condition of cover. The Association for Professional Coaching (APCi) gives you that professional credibility and support.


Our aim is to keep APCi membership levels simple and clutter-free in order to avoid confusion for both prospective members and prospective clients seeking a coaching professional.


Continuing Professional Development (CPD)


All Professional and Trainer members of the APCi are required to commit to a cpd process as a condition of their membership. This is a key element in helping our members to stay at the top of their game and ensures that clients are getting the very best service for their investment.


We ask our members to provide evidence of at least 30 hours of cpd over a twelve-month period and this can include:



  • Courses and seminars attended

  • Attendance at industry-related conferences (up to six hours)

  • Webinars and online study

  • Reading time (up to 10 hours)

  • Coaching supervision (up to 12 hours) - *this is also a condition of Professional Membership


We are here to help so please contact us if you have any questions.
