After looking at other alternatives, I completed the Professional Coaching Certification at UNH. It was not only a helpful addition to my OD practice, but some of the skills I acquired proved useful in my work on a not for profit board. The classes were informative and engaging, and Carlotta Tyler, who led the program, provided a great deal of insight into this important field.

I loved the Professional Coaching Certificate program with UNH Professional Development and Training. The lead instructor, Carlotta Tyler, was an engaging facilitator and I grew exponentially as a coach while working with her and the other professionals I met in class.
