Want to develop and distinguish your career?

In recent years there has been explosive growth in coaching as a profession. Shrinking profits restrict budgets for training, development, and coaching. How do you distinguish yourself in this tough environment? Fielding’s response is to offer four evidence based certificate options that allow students to customize their coaching studies. All four certificates provide an integrated, graduate-level education in theory and best practices, client and coach characteristics, and coaching contexts. Graduates complete an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) from the International Coach Federation (ICF) and are eligible to apply for credentials at the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) level. In addition, our coaching certificates are accredited for certification through the Center for Credentialing in Education (CCE).

Certificate specializations include:

Who is the program for?
