New for 2017-2018 school year! Due to Western Seminary curriculum changes, our courses have a new prefix and number. Now instead of MCS look for CO and the 200 or 500 level course number. Rest assured, the class title and content is the same as before and all MCS eligible classes will count toward the CTC program.

Three Campuses + Online = One Program

Western Seminary conducts world-class Christ-centered coach training at each of our three campuses: Portland, San Jose, and Sacramento. We also offer this same training via online workshops that can be applied toward the Certificate in Transformational Coaching. No matter where you choose to attend, your training will be conducted to the same high standards that we provide throughout the program.

When you choose Western Coaching, you get the flexibility of three West Coast locations (each located within an easy drive of an international airport and near hotels and restaurants) as well as the convenience of learning from anywhere you have an internet connection. Best of all, you can mix up your training by taking some classes on campus and others online -- whatever works best for you.
