Frequently asked questions

Approximately 20 hours including video lectures and independent completion of worksheets (both required).

Life coaching is a non-regulated industry, so there is no license or degree required. There exists no official accrediting institution or governing body in the life coaching industry. There may be organizations that claim to be an official or legal accrediting body; however, this is false. Therefore, anyone can coach based on their own level of comfort with their chosen training and/or past relevant experience. As long as you are not going outside the scope of coaching, such as practicing therapy (for mental health, for instance) you are free to coach as you wish! It is recommended that any coach who is concerned regarding this matter seek advice from his/her state. Life coaches must be aware of and strictly adhere to the appropriate role of a life coach. Life coaches are not licensed mental health care providers or therapists and must not provide medical advice, engage in patient diagnosis, or treat mental illness or trauma. Also, former therapists may receive legal consequences for practicing as a “life coach” while conducting therapy.

No, we are NOT affiliated with ICF (International Coach Federation) or any other life coaching association. We are an independent Life Coach Training Organization. Contact hours, meaning live interactions between an instructor coach and the student, is required for ICF approved programs. We do not wish to include contact hours in our programs because we believe our students enjoy the self-paced, virtual nature of our training programs and the opportunity to receive high quality education at a great price. Also, requiring contact hours would greatly increase the fees we would need to charge for our programs, making them out of reach for many of our students around the world. We believe in the democratization of education, not creating unnecessary red tape and costs.
