The Center for Coaching Certification team believes in high quality content, excellent service, and ongoing support.

The training programs offered by the Center for Coaching Certification are designed specifically to develop the 11 Core Competencies of a professional coach as defined by the International Coach Federation.  Becoming a professional coach starts with training.

The International Coach Federation (ICF) requires 60 hours of training to become a member.  In addition to membership, the ICF offers credentialing – think about it this way: becoming a member of the ICF is much like getting a degree, and then earning a credential is much like getting a masters or doctorate level degree.

For other professionals coach training often supports existing careers:

  • The Society for Human Resource Management lists coaching as a sub-competency.
  • The Association for Talent Development lists coaching as a core competency.
  • Mental Health Professionals, Financial Planners, Attorneys, Project Managers, Consultants, and leaders in general often take coach training to further enhance their skills with a coaching approach.

At the Center for Coaching Certification three different levels of training programs (Professional, Master, Specialist) are offered to give you options with your time and budget, and also the level of training based on your plans for coaching.

The first training program is the ICF-approved Certified Professional Coach – a 30 hour program that serves to initiate people into the coaching competencies and develop coaching skills, plus provide a process.

The second level is the ICF-approved Certified Master Coach program totaling 35 hours (the Certified Professional Coach program is a prerequisite). The Certified Master Coach combined with the Certified Professional Coach completes the 60 hours required for membership in the ICF, and also the hours required for the first level of credentialing. The Certified Master Coach program is a deeper dive into the competencies and takes your coaching expertise to a more advanced level.

For those interested in additional training for more specific specialization and for advanced credentialing with the ICF, the Certified Coach Specialist programs provide the training focused specifically on the coaching areas.  The prerequisite is 60 hours of coach training or membership in the ICF.
