What are our graduates saying about The CaPP Institute™?

“I received my coaching certification from the CaPP Institute™. Do I recommend it? 100%! Is it challenging? 100%! Is it worth it? I exceeded the cost of my tuition in earnings before I even graduated. The research-based techniques I learned, confidence I gained, and business development components were a winning combination. Valorie Burton’s organization delivers with excellence, integrity, and deep commitment to helping people reach their potential.”    

Genette Howard, Author & Co-Pastor, CPEC

“This [Coach Training Intensive] wasn’t an expense, but an investment. It’s one of the best investment I’ve made in my personal and professional life. If you’re looking to gain a framework around coaching and learn about positive psychology, this is the place to be.”

     – Jermaine Davis, Educator

“I would recommend the Coach Training Intensive for someone who is already coaching… for people thinking about coaching as a way to test the waters as to whether this is really their calling… and someone like myself who at this point isn’t considering it professionally, but know that those [coaching] skill sets are used day to day as I work with other leaders in my organization.”

     – Christine JohnsonEntrepreneur

“I came all the way from England and it was really worth coming. I immensely enjoyed this training. I’ve already worked as a coach and as a counselor, but this one was about the aspect of positive psychology which I really enjoyed.”

     – Brigitte Niblet, Business Executive, London U.K.

“If you’re interested in coaching, come to the Coach Training Intensive. It was a powerful weekend.”

     – Dr. Quienton L. Nichols, Pastor and Clinical Therapist
