The first step in the 30-hour Board Certified Coach Training program is to register for and complete the Coach Approach course.
Most ILCT courses meet the elective requirements for this credential
The Board Certified Coach credential (BCC), offered by the Center for Credentialing and Education, recognizes the strong foundation developed as part of an advanced degree program in the field of counseling, and its applicability to the profession of coaching.
For those with a Master's degree in Counseling, licensed counselors (LPC), those who hold an NCC (National Certified Counselor) credential, or those who have a doctorate degree, the 30-hour Board Certified Coach Training program provides strong grounding in the core coaching competencies, addresss “gap areas” not addressed in previous professional training, and clarifies the distinctions between coaching and counseling.
Those with a master's degree in other social or behavioral sciences will want to choose the 60-hour Board Certified Coach Training program.
Students pursuing this path to BCC credentialing will begin by registering for ILCT’s 20-hour Coach Approach course and complete at least 10 hours of coach training from our wide selection of electives.
"I am continually impressed with the professional quality of the training and support ILCT provides to aspiring coaches and just wanted to say that I’m proud to be affiliated with such an organization. I recently fulfilled the ILCT coursework for the BCC certification, passed the BCC exam several weeks ago, and am now launching my coaching practice as a BCC. I greatly appreciate the on-going training and support you offer your graduates through these monthly teleconferences." – Irene H. Ericksen, M.S., BCC
