Western Seminary Coach Training


Coaching is a powerful and versatile skill set used by pastors, lay leaders, business professionals, and volunteers to help others define success and move toward it. Whether you are considering coaching as a career or just want to improve the way you relate to others, you'll find that our coach training program is distinguished by three factors:

  1. We are Christ-centered and aimed at transformation. We help coaches use this powerful skill set in partnership with what God is doing in the lives of real people.
  2. We offer world-class training. Our CTC program is approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF) as an Approved Coach Training Program (ACTP) -- a designation of quality and credibility in the coaching world.
  3. We provide an affordable coach training program. You can start your coach training for $505 and complete our Certificate in Transformational Coaching (CTC) for around $6,500.
