The most recent addition to CAPT's lineup of training and development programs approved for continuing education is the International Coach Federation, which has approved the MBTI® Certification Program for 28 Continuing Coaching Education (CCE) units. Credentialed coaches must earn 40 hours of Continuing Coach Education every three years in order to retain their credential.
"Coaches are an increasing part of our training business," says Lisa Orr, CAPT's Director of Operations. "The MBTI® assessment gives coaches an effective tool to help maximize their client's personal and professional potential.
