For the last 30 years the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) has been offering the gold-standard in coach training and leadership development for individuals and organizations. Now we are creating a new language of leadership. Let's do this together. 

Professional Coach Certification

This is a virtual (online) program with the same cohort of students for 6 months.

Sessions meet once per week. During this time, you will go in-depth developing a mastery of coaching, building your coaching business, and preparing to gain the Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) designation, one of the most highly respected and sought-after certifications in the coaching industry.
