 Step-by-step process for life and business coach training courses…

When you start on your journey to becoming a professional life or business coach, you enroll with the accredited foundational courses we offer. After completing these courses you can register as a professional life/business coach. Afterward, you can build on this foundation by adding niche specialization courses… to eventually equip yourself as a Master business and Life coach. Or as an executive Business Coach, Leadership coach, etc.

To lay the best possible foundation, we include training both as a coach and as a mentor. Mostly, because you will need both skillsets to be an effective life or business coach.

Depending on your pace, you should be able to finish the foundational training for life and business coaching within 12-18 months. To give you a better idea of the journey ahead, it is set out below as a step-by-step process: 

     Step 1: Email us on to set up a one-on-one interview in which we can answer your questions and guide you in making the best decisions with regards to your coaching training options. Or phone us on 074 1981 364.…..
