BCC-Approved Coach Certification Training

Important Announcement about BCC Approved coach training courses.

Many will see a tuition increase in January. It has been quite some time that we have raised any of our rates. Yet we must do so in order to continue to offer the quality programs AND to offer them as CCE BCC Approved programs. Yes, we will still offer several no fee and low fee CEs courses for BCCs, and yes we will still offer partial scholarships.

To ensure tuition at a lower rate, you can secure your spot now and start in January. You may even reach out to us regarding a payment plan if it is not available on the site. Since you would have to visit each page to know the fee, instead to make it easier – most are listed below.

Even as most are independent Study programs – you will ALWAYS have 1-1 interaction with an instructor which is personalized to you.

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.
