ICF Level 1 Certification Path Overview

Our ICF Level 1 Certification Path contains our CCC Certification Path (25-Week Live Online Course) combined with our 10-Hour Mentor Coaching. The Mentor Coaching includes 7 hours of group mentor coaching, 3 hours of individual coaching, and it meets the ICF Requirement of training and mentor coaching.

 

Our ICF Level 1 Certification Path is Christ-centered and based on Christian values and biblical principles that will prepare you to work with clients from every walk of life. We guarantee it will be a life-changing, inspiring, and an empowering experience!

At CCC we provide all the skills training, resources, and tools, necessary to build a thriving coaching practice - all in a Christian training environment. Our “virtual classrooms” are highly interactive, allowing you to experience coaching for yourself as you learn to coach others. Both of our instructors, Bonnie Weiss, PCC and Susan Underwood, ACC, are Christian Coaches credentialed through the International Coach Federation.

What is Mentor Coaching?

Hear What Others Are Saying About Their Experience at CCC

I have no doubt that any authentic Christian who wants to serve God in ways that help build joy and freedom within the Body of Christ, will find much of value in this course. I've been following Jesus for 35 years and am seminary-trained, and the course opened me up to new and exciting ways of seeing how God's word can make a difference in people's lives.

~ Dave Todaro

"I have just completed the Christian Coaching Course with Bonnie Weiss. It was an amazing journey with a wonderful group of women from East Coast to West Coast and in-between! Bonnie skillfully led us through life coaching skills, keeping in mind the presence and work of the Holy Spirit within us. The course perspective was a reminder that God’s Holy wisdom is available to us through every challenge, transition or problem we face in life. Bonnie wove that Christian integration into teaching life coaching and spiritual coaching tools. I thoroughly enjoyed the course work and instruction, and I hope that I can emulate Bonnie’s gentle style when I begin my work as a Christian Life Coach".
