Board Certified Coach (BCC)

Board Certified Coach

About the BCC

The Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE) created the Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential as a means to independently verify that applicants have met professional coaching competency standards established by CCE and subject matter experts. These standards reflect the common knowledge, skills and abilities of a professional coach.

The BCC is a mark of quality. It demonstrates to the public that a professional coach has:

  • Met educational and training requirements
  • Passed a psychometrically sound coach-specific examination
  • Obtained experience in the field of coaching
  • Professional peer references
  • Accountability to an enforceable ethics code
  • Commitment to continuing education

The achievement of the Board Certified Coach credential solidifies the professional identity of the coach. The BCC credential is attractive to professionals who would like to provide independent third-party verification that they have achieved certain coaching competency standards.
