Coaching Accreditation through The Coaching Society is now a reasonably easy affair if you are NLP accredited.
The Coaching Society (TCS), was evolved to recognise and empower those who have undertaken various self-development and alternative practises that include the ability to coach already.
TCS acknowledges that there are many people who are already qualified as coaches yet do not have formal training in coaching. It therefore will apply a quantity of points for each qualification you already have.
Here’s a piece from The Coaching Society themselves:
How to become accredited
The Coaching society is renowned for its globally recognized credentialing program. TCS Credentials are available to any coach who meets the requirements for the credential they apply for. The TCS offers three credentials: Diploma of Coaching, Accredited Coach and Mentor Coach.
Diploma of Coaching (DOC)
The TCS Diploma Coach credential is for the beginning coach. It requires completion of a set amount of coach-specific training; a minimum of an online coaching/NLP course plus at least two examples of how you used your skills to benefit yourself and/or others, among other requirements.

Accredited Coach (AC)
The TCS Associate Certified Coach credential is for the practiced coach. It requires completion of a set amount of coach-specific training; a minimum of 100 coaching hours (which can consist of NLP training and other coaching training), and at least fifteen clients, amongst other requirements.

Mentor Coach (MC)
The TCS Accredited Coach credential is for the proven coach, who is ready to impart his/her skills and start mentoring other coaches.
