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 courses.  No matter where or how 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 within an easy drive of an international airport and near hotels and restaurants), as well as, the option of learning from anywhere you have an internet connection.  Best of all, you can mix your training by taking some classes on campus and others online -- whatever works for you.
