Life Coach Certification

Certification as a life coach tells your future clients that you’re a professional and have acquired a valuable skill set. The path of certification is designed to ensure that you become an outstanding coach. Certified life coaches are more skilled, confident, and ultimately more successful in establishing their careers as life coaches.

Getting certified as a life coach is an important step in your path of establishing your life coaching career. Consider this page your guide to clarify life coach certification and the steps you need to take.


What is Life Coach Certification?

Becoming a Certified Academic Life Coach, and a Certified Coach with the ICF, is a mark of both a professional commitment and a statement of expertise as a life coach trained to work with youth. Receiving your certification is also a strong step in supporting this kind of work in schools. Hopefully one day, the standards set by Coach Training EDU will influence the future of education and teacher and counselor training.
