Our Board Certified Coach Certification Program

Our Board Certified Coach Certification program is built on our foundational Core Distance Learning Program.: a flexible, self-paced, and comprehensive online certification program built for aspiring and current executive coaches. As a Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE) Registered 1031-BCC training provider, CEC’s program is approved for those who plan to complete the hours required for BCC designation. While you do NOT need a master’s degree to go through our BCC training program, possession of a master’s degree is necessary when applying to the CCE for this designation.

In addition to our approved BCC coach training, you will need at least 30 hours of coaching experience, and — unlike with the ICF — you are permitted to count any previous coaching experience. If you do not have previous training hours, we will match you with fellow members of similar experience with whom you can build those needed coaching hours for certification.

Our program is designed for those who seek to become BCC-certified executive coaches. Every participant can expect an engaging blend of live webinars, recorded classes, comprehensive resources, and a robust community, all designed around practical, real-world coaching techniques and strategies.
