SHREWSBURY, N.J. (July 10, 2014) – The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), a top-rated, ICF-accredited Coach Training Program, and innovative provider of leadership development and consulting services, is proud to announce that its comprehensive and highly experiential Coach Training Program has been approved for 64.75 recertification hours toward PHR, SPHR, and GPHR recertification through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI).

Human resource professionals who are accredited by the HRCI must recertify every three years, requiring 60 hours of recertification credits of continuing education in order to keep their credentials up–to-date. Previously, iPEC’s first module of its Coach Training Program, Life & Leadership Potentials Training (LPT), was approved for 23 recertification credits by the HRCI. With the addition of Module II and Module III, iPEC’s entire Coach Training Program is now approved, totaling 64.75 recertification hours. By taking iPEC’s full coach training program, professionals can now complete all of their recertification credit hours with one single program, while also becoming a Certified Professional Coach (CPC).

iPEC’s all-inclusive, fully-accredited Coach Training Program develops successful coaches through its proven coach training process. Focused on helping individuals build energized and engaged organizations for innovation and growth, iPEC’s program is based on the scientific application of energy, consciousness, and decades of experience in the field. iPEC’s proprietary methods, such as the Core Energy Coaching™ process and Energy Leadership Index™, are examples of effective tools its graduates use to become highly successful coaches and professionals in their niche. The program’s training serves human resource professionals by helping them create a culture of engagement – one that inspires, enables, empowers, and demonstrates a high regard for human potential. As a powerful result, organizational behaviors become driven by collaboration, teamwork, and continuous learning.

“Having our Coach Training Program fully recognized by the HR Certification Institute helps us to further engage and develop human resource professionals into highly effective internal coaches who drive employee engagement and enable sustainable business growth,” said Luke Iorio, President & CEO of iPEC. “By completing our entire program, HR professionals will easily become recertified, while also becoming great leaders within their organization. Graduates of our Coach Training Program are in high demand for their masterful skill in guiding their clients and customers to fully engage, to achieve measureable success on their own terms, to overcome challenges, and to reach their full potential, and we are excited for HR professionals to bring this capacity into their organizations.”

The HR Certification Institute, established in 1976, is an internationally-recognized certifying organization for the Human Resources profession. Today, more than 115,000 HR professionals worldwide proudly maintain the HR Certification Institute’s credentials as a mark of high professional distinction. The HR Certification Institute is a global leader in developing rigorous exams to demonstrate mastery and real-world application of forward-thinking HR practices, policies, and principles.

There are significant benefits to having internal coaches who can positively impact and inspire employees. According to the American Management Association’s  (AMA), Global Study of Successful Coaching Practices, 79% of managers think coaching improves individual performance and productivity, 63% believe coaching addresses leadership development/succession planning, and over 40% believe it boosts employee engagement and helps address specific workplace challenges.
