Why It Is Important for a Coach to be Board Certified?

Board Certification is a significant accomplishment only a few coaches attain. Board certified states the coach has met the requirements of a recognized coaching board of standards. Board Certification guarantees a coach has demonstrated a level of competency in their specialty. The same cannot be stated for those who are not board certified.

Board Certification provides an objective standard that assists the public in making informed decisions in choosing a coach. It further identifies those coaches who have the advanced skills and have taken the extra time and effort to meet the rigorous standards of the ICCSB.

Board Certification form the ICCSB is the mark of a dedicated professional.
