The Benefits of Coaching are Real and Tangible

Becoming a coach is not just a new revenue stream or change of career, it's a new way of being.   Coaching will give you the freedom and flexibility to decide when and where you work, how often you work, and who you work with.  Students who join our coach training come with the goal of certification.  But, they leave with a lot more than that.  They graduate with lifelong networks and friendships, and a new way of approaching their work and life.

And with our programs - you self pace.  With over 30 classes a week to choose from, you get to choose what days and times you study.  Perfect for people with a busy work or family life.  View Schedule

Coach Certification for Professionals

As the world continues to evolve with new ways of being and doing, it's not surprising that coaching has stepped forward as being a profession pivotal in facilitating positive change. As a coach you take on the role of advocate, sounding board and accountability partner.  You will help people clarify their values, beliefs, feelings, and goals, and will hold a safe space for them to transform and thrive. Coaching is a profession with portability and a global application - meaning that with today's easily accessed technologies, you can coach anyone, anywhere in the world from your own home or office.

The Certified Professional Coach Program has been delivered via e-learning since 2001, and accredited with the ICF since 2004.  Our coaches work locally and Internationally, and have all developed their own unique coaching model.
