Join the Competitive Ranks of PCC Certified Coaches

An innovative, challenging, and comprehensive program, specifically designed for experienced coaches, particularly ICF Associate Certified Coaches (ACCs) or Board Certified Coaches (BCCs), who are ready to take their coaching skills to the NEXT LEVEL. We believe achieving the level of Professional Certified Coach (PCC) demonstrates your professional coaching mastery, builds self-confidence and a sense of achievement, and makes you even more competitive in the marketplace. Having an advanced certification gives the coach a meaningful competitive advantage.

This program is ICF Level 2 accredited. It includes 75 hours coach-specific training. After the class, Positive Coaching is committed to supporting you through the credentialing process by providing individualized feedback and personal support by trained, Certified ICF assessors.

This highly successful and tightly designed coach training program is conducted in English and takes place in an intensive, interactive 6-day experience (Monday – Saturday). In advance of the training, a small amount of pre-work is required (primarily reading and personal self-assessment) and is included in your coach-specific-training hours for the program. Students also must attend a two-hour Orientation call. This comprehensive program expands and reinforces advanced coaching skills which deliver greater self confidence and improved coaching outcomes for your clients.

PCC Certified Coaches

There are currently 52,000 ICF-Certified Coaches in the world, and 50% are in North America. Of this global number, 43% are now PCCs, a significant growth over just a few years. In the coaching business today, having a PCC is more important than ever. Corporate clients in particular are demanding more experienced coaches with higher level credentials. 

Plus, with your PCC certification, you are no longer required to invest in 10 hours of mentor coaching with every recertification. That single benefit can save anywhere from $1,500 – $3,000 every three years.

There are currently 51,988* coaches in 143 countries who hold one of three ICF Credentials.

  • 27,273 Associate Certified Coaches (ACC)
  • 22,521 Professional Certified Coaches (PCC)
  • 2,204 Master Certified Coaches (MCC)
