Relational Coordination Collaborative


RC Certification

RC Certification recognizes individuals who have completed personal or professional education, training and development in the practice of relational coordination.  RC Certification is informed by relational coordination principles, research, practice, and metrics - and by the RC community's accumulated learning about the facilitation of relational coordination to help organizations to achieve positive change.

The Institute for Excellence in Health and Social Systems (IEHSS) at The University of New Hampshire (UNH) facilitates the RC Certification process by collecting applications to be reviewed by members of the RCC board and community.
