How to become an ICCS® consultant ?

If you are interested to become an ICCS® consultant, we look for four things:
a) A PhD or Master’s degree in a relevant field of behavioral science (e.g. counseling, psychology, social psychology or organizational behavior)
b) An existing qualification in a related career counseling or coaching approach.
c) Demonstrable listening skills, to allow you to deliver maximum value to your ICCS® clients.
d) A substantial base of relevant client experience.
e) References that support the above qualifications and experience.
ICCS® consultant training is usually provided over the Web in six one-hour sessions with intermediate homework. More… This can be provided in two-person groups, so that participants experience both sides of the career consulting experience. Individual training can also be provided. The training provides an in-depth look at both underlying ICCS® theory and complementary career consulting approaches. It offers hands-on experience with the ICCS® , and guidance on how to use the ICCS® with both individual clients and workshop groups.
Successful graduates of the ICCS® consultant training program will receive a certificate of qualification and be eligible to take out an ICCS® consultant’s license. In turn, the license will allow for you to be registered on the ICCS® website, and to have unlimited use that website and its services in future consulting activities.

What other career owners say?

The ICCS® two day workshop was very helpful. The background to the theory was nicely explained - good practical use of the cards and some useful counselling skills practice. The second-level counselling approach was particularly useful. A very worthwhile two days.
- Nigel Benwell, Head of Executive Development, Lloyds TSB, UK

I enjoyed the ICCS® workshop very much. The atmosphere was informal but very learning-oriented. The exchange with the teachers and the other participants was inspiring, and last but not least the ICCS® instrument is very useful to me in my daily consulting work.
- Lucia Hegglin-Süss, Organizational Consultant, Zurich, Switzerland

I was very pleased with the Intelligent Career Card Sort® process. As a career coach, I have found some assessment tools to be rigid, and the client must fit the assessment. However, the ICCS® is flexible and client driven and the instruction was knowledgeable and articulate. I look forward very much to using the ICCS® with my clients.

"I found the ICCS® to be an extremely useful tool in helping me determine what I want from my work experiences, as well as a possible path that I can take to achieve success in my professional and personal life."
