Our Partners

CFE is thrilled to partner with some of the top accredited coaching schools on the planet. With multiple certification partners we offer a number of program dates throughout the year. This means that you get a choice of schools based on your timing to obtain your certification. Before you start the application, please get to know more about our partner schools and how our relationships with our partner schools work.

CFE ensures that every instructor has been vetted as having a combination of lived experience as a marginalized population and/or extensive training in anti-racism. These partnerships provide a unique experience by building and graduating close-knit cohorts of BIPOC fellows who are certified through world-class curriculums.

Academy of Creative Coaching

The Academy of Creative Coaching mission is to offer the very best in training with a flexible and adaptable curriculum that enables our graduates to make an impact in the discipline that best reflects their strengths and purpose.

Why ACC?

The ACC-CFE partnership is symbolic of our corresponding values to serve the BIPOC community in the coaching industry. ACC will deliver quality content through our Four Pillars of Creative Change™, as well as JEDI training which will be integral to successful coaching within an organization. The Academy of Creative Coaching has an experienced team of instructors and mentor coaches who represent a prominent group of professionals. They have dedicated their careers to forwarding the important work of coaching and ensure that our students have experiences throughout the program that allow them to engage with professionals, reflect, and apply what they are learning in real-time.

Co-Active Training Institute

Co-Active Training Institute (CTI). CTI has been training coaches around the world for nearly 30 years.

Why Co-Active Training Institute?

As an organization dedicated to creating new opportunities and activating potential, CFE is proud to be partnered with CTI.

Their programs are designed to inspire a passion for life-long leadership development, rooted in communication and aligning with others.

Like CFE, CTI believes that to become an effective coach, one must first learn to challenge their limitations, develop strong self-trust, nurture honest self-discovery and take bold actions. Only then can we teach others how to cultivate these skills within themselves.
