Online Certification. If in doubt, start here. You get all of our content, designation of Certified Executive Coach, the Board Certified Coach training (if applicable to you), and ongoing support. Learn at your own pace or join our live teleclasses, all of which are recorded and placed in your member area. You can also get the ICF designation via distance learning.

ICF ACTP – Get your ICF designation. The International Coach Federation is the largest professional association of coaches. If you already know that you want an ICF designation, we are accredited as an ACTP with the ICF. This gives you the easiest path to an ICF designation, and we go way beyond ICF core competencies to show you how to deliver significant results and value to your clients. You can complete the ICF training via distance learning, or accelerate your completion by coming to an in-person seminar.

In-person Certification Seminar. People from around the world come to our seminar and rave about it. Over 3 and ½ days you get an intensive coach training experience and leave with our Certified Executive Coach designation as well as hours towards the ICF or BCC. Our seminars are high-energy with great people that become part of your network for success. You leave with renewed enthusiasm, confidence, and a practical plan for success. Plus, the seminar includes our distance learning program. That way, you get ongoing support.

Board Certified Coach (BCC). All of our programs include the Board Certified Coach (BCC) program. If you have a Masters degree or higher, the Board Certified Coach certification program gives you a highly-respected coaching designation while giving you credit for your years of education.
