The Certified
Coach Advantage

Is getting certified freaking you out?

As a coach, an official ICF certification is an invaluable tool to prove your skills and competence to new clients. But whether you’re working towards your ACC, PCC, or even MCC… it’s hard.

  • You need to rack up mentoring hours in order to get certified, and it’s not always easy to find the time and great mentors to trust.
  • The CKA (Coaching Knowledge Assessment) test has recently been changed and most information you can find about it is outdated.
    You have to make sure your skills on the ICF core competencies are on point… but how do you know what you don’t know without guidance?
  • Even if you’re already certified, you still need to acquire CCEU to keep your certification — which means, you need to keep training.


What's In It
For You

Strengthen Your Fundamentals

You will learn everything you need to know about the new revised eight core competencies the ICF uses to evaluate your coaching skills, complete with exercises and learning activities to hone and master them. revised eight core competencies the ICF uses to evaluate your coaching skills, complete with exercises and learning activities to hone and master them.
