GISC Certification
In a world where licensure and certification are becoming more and more important, we wish to help our students meet these demands while engaging in a profound learning experience. To that end, GISC now offers two distinct certification programs.

“GISC's Competency Development Program
for Coach Certification is by far the most extraordinary professional development program in which I have ever participated. A multitude of elements combined to make this such a valuable program. The three that stand out for me include: the outstanding faculty, the comprehensive content and the exceptional structure that was employed to deliver the material. I've learned, retained and used more from this program than any other, both in growing my own businesses and those of my clients.”

Jennifer J. Gould
CEO, Reach Consulting

"After attending GISC, I pay more attention to the positive. I am more present when intervening with people in coaching and in groups. I spend much more time in trying
to make people 'aware' of what is going on. I introduced the Cape Cod Model and
the cycle of experience in my coaching and in my consultation with a workgroup who wants to improve the well being of their organization. The work group I work with is much more happy and more effective. Every meeting I have with them brings a new discovery for everyone. It is lot of fun. "

Yvon Boucher

"My attendance at several GISC workshops has widened my professional skill set, widened my circle of friends and associates, and widened the eyes of some of my colleagues when they noticed the very positive impact of my learning there."
