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 aligned with the PCC Certification requirements of the ICF. 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 7-day experience (Sunday – 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. 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 a little more than 27,000 ICF-Certified Coaches in the world. Of this number, ACCs outnumber PCCs by almost 2 to 1. Imagine the bragging rights when you join a more elite group of coaches.

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 27,145* coaches in 119 countries who hold one of three ICF Credentials.

  • 16,340 Associate Certified Coaches (ACC)
  • 9,784 Professional Certified Coaches (PCC)
  • 1,021 Master Certified Coaches (MCC)
