Certificate in Transformational Coaching (CTC)
This robust program prepares you to coach at the highest level. With 160 hours of coach specific training, supervised coaching, mentoring, and two certification exams, you will not only know about coaching, but you will be competent and ready to coach others in a wide range of contexts. This program is appropriate for individuals in ministry and marketplace settings.
Participants who pass the final certification exam earn the designation Certified Transformational Coach, are listed on the Western CTCroster, and are included in Western-sponsored coaching initiatives. Since all training is fully aligned with the International Coach Federation (ICF), CTC graduates are highly prepared for the credential application with the ICF.
The Certificate in Transformational Coaching can be completed in approximately 18 months and includes training, supervision and certification:
+ Intro to Coaching (MCS 510)
+ Coaching for Change (MCS 511)
+ any six other coach training courses (MCS 512 – 518)
+ 12 hours of Coaching Supervision (MCS 519)
(Costs are $375/course, which totals $3375 for all training and supervision. These costs reflect Western Seminary audit rates for coach training. Taking the courses for academic credit will increase the costs to $445/course, $3560 total)
+ 6 observed coaching sessions with written feedback from a PCC or MCC coach
+ a written exam
+ an oral exam
(Costs are $1550)
Total costs for the Certificate in Transformational Coaching are $4,925.
Save $500 when you pre-pay for all remaining costs (training, supervision and certification) prior to attending your second training class.

If you have not heard, we have a “Hood To Coast” champion on our faculty.
Dave Wenzel ran from Timberline Lodge to Government Camp with the first wave of 25 or so HTC runners. Their starting time was 3:30 AM. Dave thought it would be a great opportunity to lead the race for a hundred yards or so. He took off at the start like a comet and led the runners down the hill. After going about a half mile he turned around and there was NOBODY behind him! The other more cautious runners were holding back to save their knees on the steep grade. The heat lightning gave the dark night a stobe effect about the time the endorphines kicked in and Dave entered the zone called “the runners high.”
Dave ended up leading the pack down the hill and was the first runner to hand off to a teammate at Government Camp. Our man Dave led the 2011 HTC relay for the first of 36 legs. Talk about awesome!
If you see Dave hovering a few feet off the ground, this explains the reason why. He’s still on “cloud nine!”
