What is the basic fee?

due to the content and additional tools, programs are not always priced the same per contact hour. However, as a rule of thumb, most of our full certification courses are priced between $35 – $50 per hour and most of our continuing education courses for BCCs are priced between $15 – $25 per training hour.

Do I get any certificate after completing the training?

All programs will result in a digital certificate of completion or a digital full certification, depending on the program, upon completing all requirements. 

Full certification programs result in digital certificates with an option of a mailed hard copy – upon completing all requirements. 

In addition many programs also come with digital badges upon completion. 

Will I automatically earn the BCC?

While many of our programs are BCC-Approved, they will not result in obtaining a BCC. 

If you choose for the OPTIONAL credential, you must apply through the CCE’s web-site.  Learn more here: 

Does BlueRio charge an annual or renewal fee?

As of June 2022, BlueRio does NOT charge a renewal or recertification fee.  All graduates are expected to abide by the code of ethics they signed. Once you are a graduate, your certification and designation is permanent. If BlueRio moves to a renewal fee, prior graduates will be grandfathered in and will not have to pay renewal fees for at least the first five years.

Depending on the course you take, you mau have additional 1:1 coaching sessions available to you that may allow for some coaching/mentoring for starting your own practice. Some of the courses have additional lessons on marketing and business.  We do not currently include 1:1 ongoing support to build your own pratice. We do ogffer supportive resources. Graduates of the certification programs also get a complimentary listing in our coach directory.
