The EQ Coach Certification: ICF Competencies + Emotional Intelligence + Neuroscience
At the highest level of International Coaching Federation accreditation, the EQ Coach Certification (EQCC) delivers the tools and methods to become a transformational professional certified coach – plus multiple professional certifications from the world leading organization for emotional intelligence.
You’ll learn how to BE a coach, and how to deliver coaching. How? Intensive training in partnership with deeply experienced faculty, a worldwide community, and a complete system of tools for measurement and development.
EQCC is an unusual program that goes much deeper than typical “life coach certification,” designed for serious professionals who want to become world class executive coaches or transformational life coaches. We hold regular free Q&A sessions where you can meet people in the program and ask any question. See below.
The biggest difference is EQ. We don’t just “talk about it,” Six Seconds’ programs are living experiences for growing and practicing emotional intelligence. We were the first organization delivering emotional intelligence practitioner certification, and we are the only global nonprofit 100% dedicated to growing and practicing EQ.
Please download the brochure for EQCC on the links below and you’ll see a step-by-step program with costs clearly outlined. If you do the entire program at once (6 courses, including 5 different certifications) it’s around US$10,000. This is significantly less than other programs in this category (with extensive synchronous training, high faculty:student ratio, and PCC-level accreditation) — but EQCC is modular so can pay for one step at a time, with no gimmicks.
Profound & Practical
EQCC has been a truly life-defining journey. It blends profound, timeless theory with ample practical opportunities, all ably supported by exemplary mentor coaches (the student-mentor ratio on this course is laudably small). I feel honoured to be able to partake in this journey allied with such a wise, authentic, purposeful community.

As a seasoned executive leader, I have lived by the rule “you change first” but with Six Seconds EQ coaching certification I experienced a far deeper personal and professional transformation than any other learning journey I have ever been on. I’m a different person now, equipped with a new perspective and incredibly impactful and practical tools to help others harness their emotions to yield positive outcomes and to find their life’s true purpose. Simply amazing. Thank you Six Seconds!

Tools for Leadership
I found the Six Seconds EQ Model to be thorough, easy to understand and well grounded in solid research. Their resource library and support personnel are extremely knowledgeable and responsive and the way they melded their EQ model into the International Coaching Foundation credentialing is outstanding. Lastly, being a member of Six Seconds Global Community provides a valuable insight into different cultures and approaches to applying EQ.

Coach Certification Training
Coaching is a powerful process to support people to create positive change – which takes thoughts, feelings, and actions working together. Through this journey you’ll learn to apply International Coach Federation (ICF) Core Competencies for the essentials of coaching; a transformational emotional intelligence framework to make coaching highly effective; plus practical tools to provide metrics for growth.
EQCC is an “Approved Coach Training Program” (ACTP) by the International Coach Federation for 165 hours — which is more than enough to receive Professional Certified Coach (PCC) (Click here to verify program approval on ICF website).
After completing the EQ Coach Certification you will be prepared to develop an effective practice as business or personal coach with expertise in the ICF Competencies, powerful EQ tools, and a structure to make coaching into a transformational process. One key differentiator of this program is the deep integration of emotional intelligence as a toolset for your clients, and even more, for the development of self as coach so you are more aware, present, and purposeful in this work.
