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, those who hold an NCC (National Certified Counselor) credential, or those who have a Ph.D., 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 completed three courses with ILCT and recently earned the Board Certified Credential. ILCT offered a flexible schedule and diverse array of classes that meet certification requirements and matched my specific areas of interest. The instructors were all active in their own coaching practices and brought a rich set of experiences to each class. ILCT's materials and web site were invaluable tools supporting the learning process. I would highly recommend this program for anyone seeking to learn coaching or enhance their skills.
