Everyone who applies for a credential with the BCLC must specify the level of credentialing he/she is seeking. Currently, the BCLC offers four national credentials in Christian Coaching, which are the CCLC (Certified Christian Life Coach), the CACLC (Certified Advanced Christian Life Coach), the CMCLC (Certified Master Christian Life Coach), and the highest level of credentialing, the CPCLC (Certified Professional Christian Life Coach). Individuals, who meet the requirements for any given credential, may also be eligible to receive more than one designation and can request consideration when submitting the application packet.
