About the course
The Professional and Personal Coach Certification (PPCC) program combines a strong grounding in the basics of coaching with ongoing experience-based supervision. Its unique features provide root knowledge and experience in the critical areas of coaching theory and practice. The PPCC program is divided into theory and competency development modules aligned with coaching standards recognized internationally by coach training institutes and by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Through these core learning modules and supervised practice, participants gain competence in the essential skills and models of coaching, as well as an international perspective of coaching applications in various sectors of work and society.
PPCC is an ICF-approved program. As such, it enables you to master the ICF's core competencies of coaching thereby equiping you to perform effectively as a professional and personal coach. Through program work and supervised practice, you will develop the requisite perspectives and skill sets to function effectively in coaching relationships. Practical coaching assignments will deepen your experiential foundation for working with future clients.
PPCC is the first module of the ICF-approved ACTP program. It qualifies participants for ACC-level accreditation from the ICF. PPCC is recognized by the ICF for 116 hours coach-specific training.
You may achieve the requirements for the ICF PCC-level of accreditation after graduation from the PPCC program by successfully completing the second module, Journey to Mastery.
PPCC applicants must already possess:
- A high level of professional competency in a related domain of practice
- At least five (5) years full-time work or life experience
- A minimum of an undergraduate degree (exceptions may be made for applicants showing evidence of equivalency in education and relevant training)
