Journey to Mastery

Advanced certified coach training

Join us for the 2019-20 advanced coach development program Journey to Mastery. This program builds upon our highly successful Personal and Professional Coach Certificate (PPCC) program. Journey to Mastery provides theoretical perspectives, evidence-based and practice-based guidance, plus individual and group mentoring sessions designed to profoundly deepen your comprehension and ease of application of the 11 ICF Core Coaching Competencies.

Journey to Mastery takes place in an intimate learning environment with a maximum of 12 participants. It builds on expertise acquired in a basic PPCC program and supports you in increasing your ability to navigate challenging coaching interactions with authentic confidence in your abilities and skills. The curriculum covers the behavioural repertoire of an ICF-certified Professional Certified Coach (PCC). It also addresses elements of personal foundation related to genuine coaching presence and interpersonal effectiveness.

  • PPCC modules I and II are ICF approved for 169 hours of coach-specific training;
  • Successful completion will result in your qualifying for application to the PCC credential level.
  • Journey to Mastery has been recognized by ICF for 53 coach-specific training hours (including mentoring). However, the program, as it is designed in its current format, consists of 67.5 hours of training / mentoring :
    • 39 in-person hours
    • 18 web-based hours
    • 3 hours of individual mentoring
    • 7.5 hours of individual work.

*Please note that all non-program based ICF requirements, such as the completion of 500 documented coaching hours with clients and the ICF Coach Knowledge exam, must also be met when applying for PCC from ICF and that the certificate of completion will mention 53 ICF approved coach-specific training / mentoring hours.

Enrollment is limited.

Intended participants

Participants in the Journey to Mastery will already hold a basic coaching certificate (Concordia’s PPCC or equivalent certification demonstrating 116 hours of coach-specific training from an ICF-accredited coach-training organization). They will also have the intention to devote the time and energy necessary to bring their proficiency to a PCC credential level.

*Please note that it is not necessary that one holds the ICF’s ACC credential to apply to the program; however, acceptance into Journey to Mastery requires that applicants demonstrate the ability to coach at the ACC level as determined by ICF.
