Certified Professional in Coaching (CPC): Your Guide to Hiring Top Freelancers with this Credential

If you're looking to hire a freelance trainer to help you or your employees improve your soft skills and professional development, you'll want someone with the right credentials. One such credential is the Certified Professional in Coaching (CPC). In this guide, we'll answer some common questions about the CPC and give you some tips on how to find and hire the best freelancers with this certification.

What is the Certified Professional in Coaching (CPC)?

The CPC is a certification offered by the International Coach Federation (ICF). It's a credential that shows a coach has met certain standards of training and experience in the field of coaching. Coaches with the CPC credential have completed a rigorous training program and have experience working with clients in a coaching capacity.

What are the common training requirements for the CPC?

Coaches with the CPC credential must complete an ICF-accredited coach training program. This program must consist of at least 125 hours of coach-specific training. Coaches must also have completed at least 10 hours of mentor coaching with a qualified mentor coach. In addition, coaches must have at least 100 hours of coaching experience, with at least 75 of those hours being paid coaching hours.

What are the common types of related training topics?

Coaches with the CPC credential are trained to help clients improve their soft skills and professional development in a variety of areas. Some common training topics might include communication skills, leadership development, team building, conflict resolution, and time management.

How do I hire a training contractor with a CPC credential?

The first step is to create a job posting that clearly specifies that you're looking for a coach with the CPC credential. You can post your job on freelance marketplaces like Learnexus, and you can also search for coaches with the CPC credential on the ICF website. When you're interviewing potential coaches, be sure to ask about their training and experience, and ask for references from previous clients.

What are common missteps when hiring a CPC-certified freelancer?

One common misstep is not verifying that the freelancer actually has the CPC credential. There are many coaches out there who claim to have the credential but don't actually have the training and experience required to earn it. Another misstep is not clearly defining your expectations and goals for the coaching engagement. Make sure you're on the same page with your coach about what you hope to achieve through coaching.

Why is the CPC certification important?

The CPC is an important credential because it shows that a coach has met certain standards of training and experience. Coaches with the CPC credential are trained to help clients improve their soft skills and professional development in a variety of areas, and they have the skills and experience needed to help clients achieve their goals.
