One of the most common complaints we hear from those who’ve trained at other schools is that they’ve learned their hours don’t count toward ICF coaching credentials. For many this has meant tens-of-thousands of dollars in tuition costs without the ability to pursue the most reputable credentials in coaching!

At PCCI you can secure our own credential of excellence — the Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) or the Certified Professional Leadership Coach (CPLC)while simultaneously completing the training hours needed for ICF credentials through our accredited ICF Level 1 Certificate Program and ICF Level 2 Certificate Program.
