The Center for Coaching Certification (CCC) Coaching Model is a process, built on a foundation of training, competency, and ethics. From the beginning of the CCC coach training program, CCC starts with the premise that the client is their own best expert. The client is ultimately best served by their coach when the client explores the possibilities, defines their goals, and decides on their plan of action. Through client-focused coaching, a client is learning skills, owns their decisions, and creates their success.
Coach-specific training such as earning your Certified Professional Coach designation with CCC, makes sense when you plan to do coaching work, are interested in additional tools, and appreciate personal development in addition to professional development.
When you consider your options for coach training programs, research the experience of the founders and trainers in developing and delivering training, the model used, and whether the organization has affiliations with other professional organizations.
If you are considering a training program that uses a mental health model, research your state licensure requirements for mental health professionals. If you are coaching using a consulting model, anticipate how to define your role with future clients. If the approach is similar to that of a friend, explore how you will apply the information.
The Center for Coaching Certification is authorized by IACET to offer CEUs – a unique identifier of quality in coach training because it is focused on the quality of the training program from content through delivery. The training is aligned with the International Coaches Federation (ICF) Core Competencies and includes the ICF Code of Ethics.
