FAQS

DO I NEED PAST EXPERIENCE OR MINIMUM EDUCATION LEVEL TO ENROLL IN LIFE COACH TRAINING?

The simple answer is no. There are no prerequisites to become a Coach Wherever student. However, there is an application process and a necessary commitment from you to complete the training and practicum. You also must have a passion for helping others, be open to learning and not be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone.

HOW QUICKLY CAN I START MAKING MONEY AS A LIFE COACH?

While this is a valid question, it should not be your primary focus. You will most likely not become a millionare, but many people can make extra income each month once they begin accepting clients. It all really depends on you.

At the moment your first priority and focus should be on SKILLS. Having the right skills to help your clients is the most important factor. Once you have a handle on what it takes to help them, the money will come. But, this is not a get rich quick scheme and it takes time to build up your knowledge and establish a client base.

The ICF estimates that coaches can earn an average annual income ranging from $27,100 to $73,100 with some even reaching above $100,000.

WHAT IS THE PROJECTED GROWTH OF THE LIFE COACHING INDUSTRY?

IS YOUR LIFE COACH PROGRAM ACCREDITED?

With this said, our life coach certification program is modeled on the highest standards set by accrediting agencies for training of licensed mental health professionals.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LIFE COACH AND A PSYCHOLOGIST?

The confusion between these two titles is very common. However, there is a difference and it is important to understand that this is not a course to train you to become a psychologist or licensed mental health professional. A psychologist is a protected title in which only those with a masters or doctoral degree from an accredited university or college with a license in this field are allowed to use the title.  A life coach is also a trained professional however, there is no license or minimum education level to work as a life coach. Also, life coaches do not diagnose or treat persons with mental illness.

Life coaches with the right training and skills can be very effective in helping clients achieve their goals. And, the best part is that you do not have to spend years sitting in a classroom to learn your craft. Universities and colleges around the nation have seen a significant drop in enrollment. The number of students enrolling in college has now dropped for five straight years, according to the National Student Clearing House. Times have changed and public opinion is that they want training that is faster and cheaper than the traditional institutional way.
