Certified Career Coach (CCC)


A 2-day professional certification course that equips you to support others through a process of career-discovery.

In this new age of work, the pace of change is happening so rapidly. People are required to upskill and reskill to transition, develop, and stay relevant in the new environment. With all the change going on around us, what we identify as work that brings us happiness may have transformed drastically. There is so much noise in the world that easily distracts us from what it truly means to be happy in our careers.

This certification on career coaching pays attention to the voice that matter the most – Yourself; and dedicates the space to look inward to acknowledge and appreciate that. It begins with a process of building self-awareness as you discover the true effects of career coaching and how this can support you. As a participant, you will learn to understand and apply the concepts, toolset, and frameworks to perform as a career coach.

Unravel the CareerKeys™ self-discovery model, a 4-dimensional view to uncover the strengths, skills, drivers, and passions of an individual. Master the process of inquiry through a simple yet powerful coaching framework, and finally bring it all together through the Career Decision Matrix©. You will walk away equipped and ahead of the career development field, ready to help others through the process of career coaching.
