BCC-Approved Coach Certification Training



I connected with Jessi LaCosta over six years ago as I decided to start my own business and become a career coach. Jessi is dedicated to the coaching profession and is an amazing educator, advocate, mentor, and coach herself!  She is supportive, compassionate, and is extremely knowledgeable about coaching and veterans. I have taken three of her programs to meet the requirements to sit for the Board-Certified Coach exam and continue my CEU requirements for recertification.  The courses are online, flexible, easy to navigate and I have come away from each course with a strong foundation in the subject and tools to use in my practice.

I highly recommend Jessi and her amazing coaching programs! She provides the platform for you to grow professionally and support your clients meaningfully.
