  • Teleclasses – Group training sessions conducted once a week by phone for the duration of training.
  • Self study – Self-pace home study courses that allow you the flexibility to study according to your schedule.
  • Online Training – Training delivered by prerecorded or live webinars on a weekly basis.
  • Or a combination of any of the above.

 Length of Training

Each program varies in its training requirements.  Programs can range from 60 hours to more than 300 hours and the training time can vary from 6 months to 2 years or more.  Most programs that offer ICF (International Coaching Federation) certification take a minimum of 6 months.

 Cost of Life Coach Training

Coach training programs vary significantly in price with programs starting as low as $600 to $14,000 or more.  The key to understanding the price of a program is making sure you know exactly what is included in the cost and selecting the training that provides you a good foundation for starting and growing your business and also that fits your budget.   Remember, there are advanced coach training classes that you can take as your business grows and you want to develop new skills.
