Board Certified Coach Credential

Board Certified Coach Credential

The new Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential is now available and you can obtain their required coach specific training through the College of Executive Coaching, one of the few training programs approved by the Center for Credentialing and Education for this credential.

Master's Level Counselors, MSWs and Ph.D. level professionals in the behavioral health fields may now apply for the the Board Certified Coach (BCC) Credential from the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE).

We have researched this new credential, the Board Certified Coach, and recommend that you investigate this BCC credential because the granting organization, CCE, takes into account your advanced, graduate level education you already have so only requires relatively minimal additional coach specific training. We are happy to help you obtain this needed training, please contact us. We also recommend that you eventually obtain your ICF Credential.
