Professional Development

From your first day on the job to assignments around the globe, ICF puts the knowledge you need to succeed at your fingertips.



ICF makes it easy for you to get settled—so you're off and running as soon as possible. Our new employee orientation experience is 100 percent online, comprehensive, and consistently presented wherever you are. It includes the "ICF Capabilities" overview of our global operations—valuable to new hires as well as long-time employees.

After you're on board, our Learning Institute delivers a full range of courses led by ICF instructors (Web Meeting format or in person around the world) and our catalog of online courses available on demand. Areas of focus include:

  • Professional development: business writing, interpersonal skills, time management
  • Management and leadership: management essentials, coaching and team development, and a monthly interactive Managers Roundtable
  • Business growth: an online introduction to business development and intensive, in-person sessions
  • Project management: managing project financials, project management essential skills, and preparation for Project Management Institute's (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) exam
  • Technical learning: highly specialized coursework developed by your practice area and delivered through Learning Institute facilities and technology

At ICF, every course has meaning, purpose, and value. The curriculum aligns directly with the skills and metrics that determine job advancement. Many courses are one hour or less—so they're easy to work into a busy schedule. Participation (pending discussions with your supervisor) has no cap, and all classes are free (except for PMP prep instructor led courses).
