EMCC Global Accreditation gives your clients and employers, your peers and your community reassurance about how you are maintaining professional standards and are adhering to a shared Global Code of Ethics.

EMCC Global has no geographical boundaries and is active in more than 140 countries. We have more than 40,000 graduates of EMCC Global accredited training programmes worldwide.

EMCC Global is very proud to be a trusted partner of some of the most prestigious providers of coaching and mentoring, and supervision training and post graduate study; and organisational executive leaders and their teams, who have established distinguished and ‘world renowned’ coach, mentor and supervision programmes. More and more practitioners are choosing EMCC Global for their accreditation because of the depth of thinking, reflection, and innovation.

Our five strategic priorities for Accreditation:

  • Insights and Innovation

To develop insights into innovation across all EMCC Global Accreditations

  • Responding to a changing world

To create opportunities for ‘leading voices’ to inspire accredited practice and learning transformation

  • Governance to Regulate and Professionalise Practice

To consolidate, secure, support and sustain growth in EMCC Global Accreditations to regulate practice

  • Digital Transformation

To explore and share advances in digital technology to transform education and training concepts, systems and delivery

  • Human Development, Learning and Experience

To reinforce and celebrate our pioneering ’Gold Standard’ EMCC Global Accreditation process, a continuous cycle of human development, lifelong learning, reflective practice, self and peer review

Accreditations across EMCC Global

EMCC Global accredits individuals (leaders, coaches, mentors and supervisors), training programmes, and organisations. We recognise prior learning and experience in awarding individual accreditations – irrespective of provider or accreditation body.


EMCC Global Accreditation Logo - EIA

The EMCC Global Individual Accreditation (EIA) is an internationally recognised accreditation that demonstrates that an individual practising as a professional mentor/coach has the appropriate level of knowledge and the ability to apply it effectively in their practice.

Coaches and mentors who have undergone a programme with one of our EMCC Global Quality Award providers (see below) will already received the quantity and standard of training they need to evidence as part of their application. However, EMCC Global also recognises prior learning irrespective of where that learning took place; we just need assurance that the learning meets our criteria.
