Steps to Become Certified from College of Executive Coaching

Steps to Become Certified

Here are the steps to become a certified coach through the College of Executive Coaching:

Option 1

Participate in a Six-Day Online Intensive followed by a series of virtual courses. Your intensive training is conducted in six days — this way you complete 44 hours in just one week, so it is efficient — and all the remaining courses are completed via convenient live virtual courses and a few streaming video classes. This is the option most of our students choose. This enables you to get a jump start by completing 44 hours of training in one week, having an intensive environment with a core group of coaching student peers and faculty. Then you will continue to learn more coaching skills each week and put them in practice as you progress through our certification program. This path allows you to register for and pay for classes as you go along. You could take just some of the courses in the certification program or complete our 72-hour Certified Professional Coach Program or our 128-hour ICF-accredited Coach Training Program. If you register for an entire certification program at one time you receive a 5% tuition discount.

Option 2

Attend all your courses — 100% distance learning — without the intensive component. Learn from the convenience of your home or office. Instead of the six-day Intensive Program, you will attend a special small group course called Coaching Essentials, which is only for option two 100% Distance Learning students. Then, you enter the other virtual courses with other students. The 100% Distance Learning Program is a complete 128-hour ICF-accredited Coach Training Program that can be paid for in a single installment with a $1,100 discount, or in two installments.

Regardless of which option you choose above to complete your coursework, there are additional requirements for either certification path such as documenting 50 hours of coaching experience, completing an oral evaluation of coaching competency, and a short essay about your experience of becoming a coach. Contact us to request the complete requirements for the certification program.
