• Is a credential important?

    Although a credential is not a requirement at this time to be a practicing coach, we highly recommend that you become a Certified Co-Active Coach. CTI’s Certification Program offers the most rigorous and thorough training in the industry, and gives our coaches the expertise, experience and confidence to take their coaching to the world.

    As a leading-edge school of coaching, our founders’ involvement with the International Coach Federation (ICF) from its very inception has resulted in a significant influence on the industry, including much of the framework adapted by the ICF to represent coaching competencies and ethics. Indeed, CTI became the very first organization to be accredited by the ICF. After successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the written and oral certification exam, with the goal of becoming a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC).

    By setting a standard of excellence, we are creating a profession that people can trust — a significant benefit in your marketing efforts to build credibility. Further, we believe that it is better to set rigorous standards and self-regulate versus government-created standards. Training hours you complete at CTI are recognized by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and are applicable toward an ACC (Associate Certified Coach), PCC (Professional Certified Coach) or MCC (Master Certified Coach) credentials.

  • Are there prerequisites for the core courses or certification?

    There are no prerequisites for the first core course, Co-Active Coaching Fundamentals. The subsequent four workshops in the core course curriculum (Fulfillment, Balance, Process and Synergy) must be taken in order and therefore the course prior is a prerequisite. To qualify for the Certification Program, all five core courses are required to be completed.

  • How long does your program take?

    It takes approximately one year to become a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. The 5 core courses take six months on average, and the Certification Program takes an additional six months.
