Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice

ICF Global Communities of Practice (CPs) provide a virtual venue for those with a shared interest in a specific topic to advance their professional development; deepen their subject-matter expertise; and share best practices, emerging trends, tools and tips. 

Each CP is steered by volunteer co-leaders who help facilitate the learning and organize the conversations, ideas, and trends that emerge from the group. CPs are designed to promote active participation from their members. Sharing and discussion is always encouraged.

Webinar Presentations

Every quarter, each CP will host a live webinar presentation from a subject-matter expert related to its topic area. These sessions are also recorded and archived for ICF Members to access on demand.

OnDemand Sessions

All webinar presentations are recorded and made available on this platform. There may also be other eLearning sessions that are created by the CP and made available here.  Participants can access these sessions at any time.  

CP Line-up

These groups are open to all ICF Global Members. For more information on an individual CP or to become an active participant in any particular CP, click on the CP title listed below.

CP Calendar 

The upcoming live webinar presentations and facilitated discussions for each CP is listed in the calendar below. As the sessions are finalized they will appear here.

Please note that when you register for a live session, you will receive an email with connection information.  This will be the only way to access these sessions.  Live session connection information will not appear under "My Learning Activities."


CP OnDemand Sessions

Below is an archive of all CP Session recordings.  

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. 

Tips for finding an OnDemand Session:

  • Search by keywords in the search box to the right.  
  • When looking for a specific CP, you can use the tags listed to the right or visit a CP's individual page for their sessions.
  • For more details on the session, presenter, and CCE units, click on the title of the session.
