CERTIFED PROFESSIONAL COACH CERTIFICATION is a natural evolution of the coach training programs developed and offered by GROW Training Institute. Course feedback data from GROW Training Institute workshops and GROW Training Institute market surveys consistently indicate a critical and growing need for a uniform national credential to identify and define coach/therapists. While there are a handful of other coach training programs throughout the U.S. open to anyone regardless of background or education, GROW Training Institute's CPC program has been formed specifically for licensed/registered/certified therapists.

GROW Training Institute currently has a staff of four employees and three faculty members. GROW Training Institute has been offering continuing education courses on “Success Motivation Coaching!” for the past three years, each year increasing the number of seminars held nationwide. As demand for coach training among therapists increases each year, GROW Training Institute increases the number of programs it offers. In 2002 GROW completed over 25 seminar tours throughout the U.S., and plans to offer international programs as well.

The mission of GROW Training Institute is to provide high quality continuing education to mental health professionals to increase their practice growth and success.

The mission of GROW Training Institute's CERTIFIFED PROFESSIONAL COACH CERTIFICATION Program is to establish and support a national credential that defines and identifies therapists as professional coaches, valid across all behavioral health disciplines and universally accepted and recognized as a useful measure of experience and expertise in professional coaching.
