Certified LIFE Coach | Course Description | 87-Hour, ICF Accredited Level 1

What makes our programs different? EXPERIENCE!

The Life Coach Certification™ offers a unique program which we call “Success Conversion Coaching.” This foundational program is designed to give the competitive edge to career-oriented individuals with the desire to enter the professional coaching arena as quickly as possible.

Practising a “values-based” approach to coaching, challenges the student to meet the highest standards of critical thinking and ethical reflection while encouraging the development of a highly respected personal and professional behaviour.

Not all coach training programs are created equal.

In North America alone there are over 100 schools of coach training with a diverse selection of programs and specialties. If we looked worldwide this number would be in the hundreds. However, very few of these schools have International Coaching Federation (ICF) approved curriculum. The ICF is the worldwide organization that sets the standards of education and ethical guidelines for coach training. So why don’t all coaching schools hold ICF accreditation? It’s a simple answer, because it is not easy. The process involves a long, laborious analysis by the ICF. Followed by what may be curriculum changes and amendments before the ICF board will grant accreditation.

This professional certification program is designed to develop and refine your coaching skills. These education courses build your professional coaching portfolio and prepare you for the complex issues you will support clients through. Your credentials convey all this and more. At the end of course, you will take the exam and receive your certificate.

Certification weaves together the strategies of coaching while developing a greater self-awareness and confidence so that coaching becomes part of who you are. Our program is fully complimented with working forms, worksheets, planning formats and additional reading. Based on the ICF’s core coaching competencies, the Certified LIFE Coach program carries 87-hours of  accredited training.

Programs accredited through the ICF are continuously reviewed to demonstrate their commitment to the highest standards. Each is evaluated for excellence in curricula, core competencies, faculty, structure, proficiency, and ethics to support the highest quality in the training of coaches. In completing the Certified LIFE Coach program, you are fulfilling many of the requirements to move through the ICF ACC Personal Credentialing (Level 1). The ACC Mentoring Program Package and Certified LIFE Coach program may both be purchased upon initiation. In this way, both programs will be completed simultaneously.

Regarding ICF Mentor Program for Personal Credentialing

As our ICF Mentor Coaching Program is very limited in the number of seats per class, it is costly when a participant registers and then chooses to drop out of the class. It also disrupts the momentum and team spirit of the class. Therefore, before you register for this program, it is important that you are 100% committed to completing your ICF Mentor Program. This means that you have cleared your schedule to make time for the classes. Furthermore, you understand that, should you drop out of your current cohort – for any reason whether in your control or not – you understand that there are no refunds and that you will pay the full program fee again to join a new class in the future.
