The Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE) is conducting this survey focused on the practice of professional coaching services. The information collected in this survey will be used in examination development.

This survey was developed by a group of Coaching Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). These SMEs were all Board Certified Coaches (BCCs) and practicing coaches with experience in the coaching field. CCE is offering this survey to individuals in many professional fields of practice. You have been invited to participate because you have been identified as an individual who may be offering professional coaching services. As you complete this survey, please remember that the goal is to better understand professional coaching services, not your specific profession or field.

Your participation in this survey is voluntary, and you may choose not to participate. The survey should take 15–30 minutes and can be completed in multiple sessions, if needed. To re-access and resume the survey, simply click the same link provided in your invitation email.

We appreciate your time and value your contribution. Your answers will provide important data for examination development and make a difference for practitioners throughout the professional coaching field.

All survey responses will be kept confidential, and only aggregated data from the survey will be published.
