Certified Resilience Coach Certification

Access a world-leading peer-reviewed resilience program, spanning assessments, coaching resources and a neuroscience-based digital app.


From small practices, to working on massive scale. This is the start of truly integrated and holistic resilience coaching.

Add advanced resilience tools to your practice

CReC is a 2-day self-paced certification course to become a Certified Resilience Coach, giving you the assessment, workshop resources, and admin access to work with clients.


At Driven we’ve invested into developing a peer-reviewed resilience model called the PR6, and then integrated that into the Driven Resilience App & coach training program.


The combination means that you as a practitioner can save time and get all the resources you need to coach resilience and help your clients in a multi-modal approach – from assessments, to the app, to high quality resilience workshop materials.


The world needs resilience right now. Join us as a Certified Resilience Coach, and help us respond to this need.

Hello, I’m Jurie Rossouw….

I’ve been focusing on the psychology and neuroscience of resilience for over 20 years. I’ve published multiple research papers on the neuroscience of resilience, appeared on TV, written books, and published many articles for various magazines and publications, all focused on how we can best build resilience in people.


My aim is to help you as a coach and trainer be fully prepared with tools, resources and training to be able to make meaningful change in the people you work with.


Through Driven, I also want to empower you to be able to reach more people through enhancing your practice with automation and AI – bringing coaching into the future.

My training delivery style is to deliver the most relevant and actionable information to you in an easy-going style through plain language.

As an example, here I am discussing our neuroscience research on building resilience through microtasks

What our clients say

This will enable you to put your logo on reports created, logos on the emails sent by the system, and your logo at the top of the app. Note that some references to Driven remain. Book a time with one of our Coach Ambassadors if you’d like to talk more about this option.

The PR6 and Driven has been used with many age groups across various professions and occupational statuses. We’ve had great success with using the PR6 and Driven program with students from 14 years old and upwards.
You can choose the context of the training which automatically updates the course language to suit various contexts. This makes it broadly applicable, from students, to job seekers, to professionals, to athletes, and more.
Yes! Driven Pro is our online admin area where you (as a certified coach) can assess the resilience of clients through the PR6 and provide the Driven Resilience Program to clients. It works through a points based system where you can purchase points as needed to use the online services with clients. The points system will be explained within the certification course. Here you also get access to all the resources provided through the training. You’ll get 1 year free access to Driven Pro to try the service out with. You may cancel your admin account at any time prior to the free year expiring.

The course material is equivalent to two full days. Some of our practitioners complete the course on a weekend, while others do a bit each day until complete. It’s up to you how fast you want to complete, since it’s all self paced. Don’t worry about forgetting though, Driven will remind you to keep going!

As a practitioner, you can gain access to assign the PR6 assessment and Driven resilience training services. Through the certification, you will learn more about how this works and how you can use the online admin area to assign the assessment and training to your clients. Learn more about the point system in the section below on the ongoing costs.

Your licence to use the resources and access the online area is enabled through an ongoing Driven Pro subscription. This subscription must be maintained to keep your licence to use the resources as a CReC and access the admin area. When you sign up for the CReC training initially you will get a free 12 month subscription for Driven Pro2. After that, you can choose the renewal level, which you can choose at a monthly or yearly level.

To use the assessments and assign the Driven Resilience App to participants, you will be using a points system. Pricing for points are based on volume. You can download this cost sheet to learn more about the Driven Pro subscription levels and also point packs pricing.

You’re welcome to read through the research papers documenting the construction of the PR6. Have a look here and you’ll find all the relevant information.
