As of August 2022, the ICF test format has changed. If applying for credentials is the main reason you're here, please consider the following and decide for yourself whether this practice test is applicable to you.
Coaches who applied for ICF credentials before August 2022 will take the old test, similar to this practice test.
Coaches who applied for credentials after August 2022 will take the new format test.
The new format test is 3 hours, proctored, and each question has a "best" and "worst" answer, not just one choice. This practice test has just one correct choice per question.
This practice test will help you gauge how well you know ICF coaching competencies. It's good practice, but it does not mirror the actual experience of the new ICF exam.
You can find information on the new test as well as a few practice questions on the ICF website.
Prepare for your coaching credential assessment.
150+ questions on Coaching Foundation, Co-Creating the Relationship, Communicating Effectively, Facilitating Results and Learning and General Coaching Knowledge
Written and edited by coaches with multiple credentials: MCC (ICF), MP (EMCC) and BCC
There's no time limit, but we recommend you give yourself no more than 3 hours total to best mirror a coaching assessment experience
At this time, explanations for each question are not provided so as to not distract the test-taker - the intention is for this to function like a "real" test
You may take the test as many times as you want, but note that your historical scores will not be recorded so please keep track of your improvement over time
To pass each section, you need to score at least 70% correct
