State or Federal Regulation of Coaching?

At this time there is no state or federal regulation of the coaching industry. You are able start your own coaching practice as soon as you complete your Coach Training Program with Life Purpose Institute. It is however anticipated, by many in the coaching profession that the profession will be regulated at some point in the future. As ICF is the most powerful coaching organization in the world it is anticipated that ICF will be the regulating body.
