Fast Track and Certification Options

Your Advanced study can be completed and certified as a single program (150hr ACTP) or for students who are wanting to fast track it can be completed as two programs (125 hr ACTP + 25 hr CCE).  The option you choose will depend on your coaching goals and your preferred designation.

* One Certification:  Advanced Certified Professional Coach (CPC)
* Dual Certification: Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Certified Group Coach

The dual certification option is available via application and is most often requested by students who know they want to benefit from the Advanced curriculum and deeper learning, but have a tight deadline for certification. For example: A corporate coach position becomes available but you need Coach Certification to apply.  But, you don't have to decide now. Begin with the single program and then customise your study path around your coaching goals and deadlines.
