The American Council on Education recommends college credits for CTI’s programs

SAN RAFAEL, CA, June 12, 2012 – The Coaches Training Institute (CTI) today announced that the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for seven of its courses. A team of faculty evaluators validated CTI’s courses and determined that content, scope, and rigor align with curricula currently being taught at accredited institutions.

“This honor both validates the rigorous standards of our Co-Active curriculum and establishes a new benchmark for the profession of coaching,” said Karen Kimsey-House, CEO & Co-founder of CTI, the oldest and largest in-person coach training school in the world.

ACE, the major coordinating body for all the nation’s higher education institutions, awarded the Co-Active Coach Training program a credit recommendation of one semester hour in the upper-division baccalaureate degree category in social sciences, organizational behavior or human resource management for each coaching course including Fundamentals, Fulfillment, Balance, Process and Synergy. The Co-Active Coach Certification course received three semester hours in the upper-division baccalaureate degree category in social sciences, organizational behavior or human resource management. The Co-Active Leadership program has been awarded a recommendation of six semester hours in the upper-division baccalaureate degree category in leadership development or organization development.

ACE CREDIT connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit at colleges and universities for formal courses and examinations taken in the workplace or other settings outside traditional higher education.

Currently, ACE CREDIT is available only in the U.S. for Co-Active Coaching courses, the Professional Co-Active Coach Certification course (CPCC) and the Co-Active Leadership program.

ACE’s CREDIT recommendation puts CTI in a select group of organizations that offer ACE college credit-recommended courses like the American Management Association, FBI, Dale Carnegie Training, Microsoft, Delta Air Lines, Learning Tree International, McDonalds Corporation, Oracle, Starbucks, and Walt Disney Co.

Founded in 1992, CTI was one of the first educational institutions to develop and offer coach training and the first to be accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, CTI is the largest in-person coach training school in the world. CTI teaches its groundbreaking Co-Active model of coaching in a highly interactive format in public courses and in organizations who are looking to improve their internal processes including Cargill, Northrop Grumman, Marriott, RBC Financial, Capgemini and Alliance Data Systems. 

Recognized as pioneers of the coaching profession, CTI’s co-founders Karen and Henry Kimsey-House co-authored the ground-breaking industry bestseller Co-Active Coaching: Changing Business, Transforming Lives (with Phil Sandahl), now in its third edition and translated into ten languages.
