CFE Coach Certification Program

Help us find the next generation of BIPOC coaches.

The CFE Coach Certification is dedicated to providing one of the most comprehensive coaching training programs running today. Our coaching scholars are taught by some of the most knowledgeable coaches in the country.

We help BIPOC professionals become exceptional certified coaches, with no prior coaching experience. Our coaches see each session with their clients as an opportunity to transform, inspire and create a lasting impact.

Our Partners

The Academy of Creative Coaching

The Academy of Creative Coaching (ACC) is enthusiastic about partnering with Coaching for Everyone (CFE). Being that ACC is proudly the first minority and woman-owned Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) within the United States, it is an honor to network with like-minded organizations, so that we can collectively thrive within our communities and society at-large.

At ACC, our core mission is to thoroughly equip and certify individuals who are intentional about engaging with the coach approach when it comes to how they interact with their own clientele. What we feel is particularly exceptional about our mission is we customize curriculums to specifically accommodate different walks of life. This includes (yet is not limited to) — the medical, military, executive, educational and entertainment industries as well as personal relationship demographics. We passionately believe that when people have the tools to transform their lives, both personally as well as professionally, success is imminent.

Core Program Features

Each cohort will consist of up to 24 BIPOC Scholars from diverse industries.

Scholars will attend two four-day live intensives over the course of a 30-day period. The all-day live sessions will be held Thursday – Sunday during the scheduled week. Post-work is required upon completion of the live sessions. Post-work is typically completed within 8-10 weeks.
Academy of Creative Coaching’s dynamic curriculum provides Scholars with in-depth learning that positions them to take action toward transformation and immediately impact their communities. Topics covered include: Human Wholeness, Cultural Competence, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Coaching, Trauma-Informed Coaching, Creative Solutions and Invigorative Leadership.
Scholars will be trained by Academy of Creative Coaching’s world-class faculty, and each intensive will be led by a team of majority BIPOC instructors.

Graduates of this program are on the ACTP Path with the International Coaching Federation.

Scholars will emerge as certified professional coaches, so that they can begin implementing their coaching and JEDI training skills, immediately within their organizations.
All training will be delivered virtually.

Co-Active Training Institute

We’ve partnered with The Co-Active® Training Institute (CTI) on this endeavor. For nearly 30 years CTI has been working with humans and organizations around the world to transform how the world relates. Through ground-breaking models and teaching methodologies, CTI delivers learning experiences that transcend traditional notions of training and empower leaders to discover their deepest expressions of leadership. With a network of certified Co-Active trainers and partners that span almost every continent, CTI is distinguished in its ability to deliver consistent quality training across the globe.

As a partner in this fellowship program, CFE ensures that every CTI instructor has been vetted as having a combination of lived experience as a marginalized population and/or extensive training in anti-racism. This partnership provides a unique experience by building a cohort of fellow BIPOC candidates who will be certified in CTI’s world class curriculum.

Program Features

Cohorts will be made up of 18-23 BIPOC fellows from diverse industries.

Cohorts are led through one 4-day and four 3-day intensive trainings over the course of 5 months.

After the initial 5 months, the certification process will take place over the following 6 months. During this time, cohorts will be divided into “Pods” of 9, where they will meet for 90-minutes once a week for 6 months. They will also be required to be actively coaching 5 paid clients.
All fellows will be certified and trained by CTI staff, with at least one BIPOC identified instructor.
CFE will provide additional courses related to diversity, equity and inclusion, spread out over the course of the program.
All training will be delivered virtually.
Fellows will emerge as certified Co-Active coaches and will immediately be able to begin implementing their coaching training in their organizations.
