Coaching - Certificate Course

Next start date: 14 May 2020

Apart from highly professional and methodical competence, the focus of our training courses at EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht is on personal development. Coaching training is an integral part of this framework. The coaching training concept is built on the systemic-constructivist approach.

The second part of the coaching training is the Certificate Course. This part follows on from the basic course and its primary aim is the implementation of the coaching training in organisations.
This part of the course is an important requirement for self-employment or corporate employment. Coaching interviews with the students of the university are also incorporated into this module. This enables them to test and expand on what they have learned. This learning process is supplemented by supervision and intervision.

Target group

This training course was developed for participants who have already successfully graduated from the basic course Coaching at the EBS.

  • taking part in the basic training course and, in particular, the diploma course, will substantially promote your own personal development.

  • considerable learning experience will be gained by directly employing and implementing the coaching expertise the students have gained both during coaching sessions and subsequent supervision.

  • the participants will be admitted to the EBS alumni network which supports the intercommunication between all EBS-trained coaches.


Requirement for participating in this certificate course is the successful participation in the basic course “Systemic Coach (EBS).


The tuition fees for the Certificate Training Course amount to €6,000 plus statutory VAT.

If both the basic training course and the diploma course are booked at the same time, the price is reduced by € 500.00 net which will be deducted from the last instalment of the diploma course.


The Certicate Course Coaching also consists of four three-day block phases.

The seminar is scheduled from 09:00h to 17:30h on each day of study, followed by coaching discussions until 20:00h. The oral examinations will take place on the third day of the last block.
