Become a Certified Financial and Career Coach
Let's get started today
Financial and Career Coaching for a Changing World
The industry is evolving. Traditional methods of credit counseling and career development are adapting to emerging technology and a shifting economy. Our certification builds a bridge between financial counseling and career development, setting up our coaches as a one-stop resource for clients seeking to improve their professional and financial lives.
Our coaches teach clients through education and action, enabling clients to incorporate what they’ve learned into daily life as they move forward. Rather than focus on simply repairing a client’s past mistakes, our coaches strive to guide clients towards improving their future.
Our Financial and Career Coaches:
- Educate and support clients
- Set strategic solutions for success
- Enable clients to manage financial and career decisions
Certification as a Financial and Career Coach requires:
- A prerequisite completion of the Certified Credit Counselor or Certified Financial Health Counselor program
- Successful completion of the certification exam.
The online course is instructor-led. It includes exercises, review slides, audio lectures, practice tests and more. While enrolled in the course, you will have access to a weekly live instructor chat. The chat is held every Wednesday at 5:00 Eastern time. An instructor and the NACCC support staff is available to assist students throughout the course.
Enrollment includes a membership to the National Association of Certified Credit Counselors. When you pass the exam, your membership will be activated and your continuing education requirements will be tracked toward certification renewal.
Request the Exam
Upon completion of the course, fill out the Request Exam Form. Testing materials are sent to the testing site indicated on the form. Proctoring services are required. These are easily arranged through local community colleges, universities, or libraries. Proctoring fees are determined by the proctoring site and may vary from location to location. NACCC also provides webcam proctoring for a one time charge of $50. The individual or firm taking the test is fully responsible for proctor payment.
The certification exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions that relate directly to the content presented in the study manual. Candidates must answer a minimum of 70 questions correctly to pass. (Please allow 7-10 business days for proctor to receive testing materials.)
An interactive review seminar for groups of ten or more
Why attend the seminar? The rule of thumb in education is that we learn:
20% of what we see
40 % of what we see and hear
70% of what we see, hear and do
Triple your success rate in passing the exam the first time. Tuition Rates are based on the number of participants. Seminars optimize the performance of your counselors and your entire organization.
(Please allow up to 10 business days for delivery of manual. Manual is an additional $50.00 charge.)
