Professional NCCA Designation for Organizations - become an organization with an"NCCA Designated Communication Coach/Trainer Certificate Program"

Who is this for?

Does your organization (for or non-profit) offer or plan to offer a communication skills coach/trainer certificate program?  Get recognized officially by a board of industry experts, representing a national body, and have your program become an "NCCA Designated Communication Coach/Trainer Certificate Program."  (Note the program does not have to hold the exact title of Communication Coach.)  This designation is ideal for companies of any size offering some kind of communication skill related coach/trainer certification to individuals, and wish to have the program recognized as in line with NCCA standards.

What are the benefits of NCCA Organization Designation?

One full year of organization designation, an NCCA Certificate of Organization Designation and permission to use the NCCA logo in your advertising (including website) of your designated Communication Coach/Trainer certification programs, and listing here on our NCCA Designated Organizations page, so that interested people can find and trust your training program. This allows government, Human Resources professionals and potential customers to find your certificate program easily.  (If for any reason you do not want to be listed publicly, just let us know.)  You will also be given priority when opportunities for advertising and sponsorship arise at our events.  This is a great way to widen your reach and share your programs with the coaching world. In addition to recognized NCCA Designation of your certificate program, when a Coach/Trainer graduates, they may be entitled (with proper designation requirements provided) to one free year of Professional NCCA Designation for Individuals.
