Certification Information

Our online Coach Certification Course is designed for coaches, HR professionals, leaders and individuals wanting to add social and emotional intelligence coaching to their toolkit.  The course provides you with a basic knowledge of social and emotional intelligence and will equip you with the ability to administer the Social and Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® to your clients and explain the results, as well as coach and train others in social and emotional intelligence.  Effective coaching involves behavioral change and our course will give you the tools and experience you need to help your clients become aware of and modify behaviors that may be slowing them down as well as leverage their strengths to their best advantage.

The Coach Certification Course is based upon the 4 Quadrant Model of Emotional Intelligence and covers 26 competencies of social and emotional intelligence, providing expert training on how to coach social and emotional intelligence and how to administer both the self and 360 versions of the SEIP.  We work through case studies of clients and learn how to debrief clients’ SEIP reports and help them develop a growth plan for behavioral change.  We also discuss how you can market yourself as a Social and Emotional Intelligence Coach® once you have completed the certification course.  You will have continued access to the private portal and customer service support after the course ends.  You will be able to purchase assessments online and administer them to your clients, tracking everything through your online private portal.

Our classes meet online for 90 minutes each week for 8 weeks and are delivered via live, interactive webinars, so there is no need to travel.  You can also take our self-study version on your own schedule and listen to pre-recorded sessions and send us a detailed summary content of each class.  Note: The self-study course is accredited by the HRCI and SHRM, but not ICF.

Each class is recorded in case you are absent.  If you do miss a class, you will listen to the recording and send a summary in order to earn credit for the class and receive your certification upon completion.  Note: In order to receive ICF certification, you’ll want to plan to attend at least 3 of the 8 sessions live.
