Coach Training FAQs

This page updated June 17, 2015.

  1. How is obtaining a coach certification beneficial?

    A coach certification from a coach training company is vital because it will prove to the world that you are coaching according to the ethics and core competencies of this industry. For example, coaching is about helping people go inside to find their own answers while consulting is about analysis and possible solutions. Mentoring is about giving advice. Counselors are more like archaeologists they help you dig into the past and usually spend quite a bit of time in the past to repair your life. People need to be clear on what service you are offering them.

    A coach certification from a coach training company is vital because they will give you a certificate that says you have met the standards of the industry.

    A coach certification from a governing body may be important to you if you wish to conduct Executive coaching work in corporate and government. In Requests for Proposal, corporate and government officials will often ask for a credential/accreditation from a governing body. For life coaching, as long as you have your certificate from a reputable coach training company, clients are usually not so concerned about a certificate from a governing body.

  2. What are the top 3 to 5 criteria a coach should consider when selecting a coach certification program and why?

    1. Select a program that can prove a high return on investment from their coaching methodologies because the industry is turning out some Coaches who have difficulty providing the client with top rated results. As the Coach you must be able to coach the client using life-changing coaching methodologies and tools and then help them measure their results at the end. This will more than guarantee you a business in coaching because clients like doing business with successful people.
    2. If you wish to be an Executive Coach, select a program that will train you to be both an Executive and Life Coach. Once an Executive develops trust with you, chances are they may need you to help them with their personal goals such as health, their relationship with their spouse/children and their spiritual life.
    3. Vitally important is for a program to show you how to coach at the subconscious level. 95-99% of our behaviours are operated by our subconscious mind. Our subcon is 1 million times more powerful than our conscious mind. Our limiting beliefs are located in our subconscious mind; therefore, a coach needs to know how to help a client find those limiting beliefs and then switch them to positive beliefs for permanent positive change.
    4. Clients want to maximize the value they receive from a Coach. Therefore, they want to feel like they have permanently shifted their beliefs, actions and patterns.

    A second option is Distance Learning coach training:
    All of the levels mentioned above are also taught via distance learning. Students who prefer to study via distance learning attend two classes per week with each class being two hours in length. Most classes are conducted over the web or phone; however, beginners of the APC program attend 13 webinars to more effectively cover the definition of coaching, philosophy of coaching, core competences as well as models and theory.

    In addition, these two special levels are taught solely via Distance Learning:
    • Certified Group Power Coach (CGPC)
    • Certified Executive Power Coach (CEPC)
