As the first-ever chartered status for business coaching professionals, Chartered Business Coach® is the industry’s most coveted credential designed exclusively for elite business coaches.

WABC offers four evidence-based credential levels that are designed to meet the diverse needs of practicing business coaches. Chartered Business Coach® (ChBC®) is WABC’s fourth and highest level, held by business coaches all over the world.

Business coaches holding the ChBC are expected to possess specialized knowledge and professional competence in order to demonstrate their mastery of the WABC business coaching competencies and their application of a range of business coaching initiatives and activities across a wide diversity of contexts, the outcomes of which may be unpredictable.
