Celebrating 2015!

CDI-Africa International Accreditation

The year 2015 shifted coaching at CDI-Africa (and in the region) to a higher global notch! CDI-Africa received ICF Accreditation as a Coach training organization. This is the first of such accreditation in the broader Eastern African region. As a result, Kenya is now on the global coaching map as a host of an ICF accredited Coach Training Institute. Below is a listing of ICF Approved programs now offered at CDI-Africa:

aWe had our pioneer class under the ICF accredited programs (Certified Organizational Effectiveness Coach) graduate at a colorful graduation ceremony on 19th May, 2015. In total, 32   COEC’s graduates comprising of Senior   HR Managers, Senior Team Leaders and Management Consultants drawn from various companies join the league of global coaches who are championing organizational coaching both as internal and external coaches.
