Continuing Coach Education

These sessions will fall in the category of Resource Development for ICF Credential renewal purposes. CCE units for recorded sessions are considered self-study for the purpose of renewing an ICF Credential. You may count up to 16 hours of self-study toward Resource Development for the renewal of your ICF Credential. 

It is important to note that for ICF credential renewal purposes, credit for a specific session can only be claimed once.  Watching the same session more than once does not warrant more CCE units.  For example, if you watch a live session, and then watch the recording of the session again, you are only able to claim credit for that session for the first completion.
