Three Great Ways to Become Certified

Live Online

Delivered by a Certified Coach Trainer in a live webinar setting, this dynamic experience allows you to participate from the comfort of your own home or office. Held 1-2 times per month, this unique learning experience is your opportunity to attend as if you were in a classroom, ask questions and get support in real-time, as the Certified Coach Trainer delivers the same material as the Live In-Person version of the course.

Register for the Live, Online Certified Coach Practitioner Course.


This comprehensive version of the course covers the exact same content and requires the same participation, but at your own pace, in a pre-recorded, self-study format. With quizzes and assignments to ensure comprehension and participation, you will have a virtual version of the classroom environment.

Why Become A Certified Coach?

Certified Coaches Federation certified coaches enjoy the following lifestyle and career benefits:

  • A greater sense of fulfilment and purpose in life - because you're making a difference.
  • Improved relationships - both at home and at work. Our certified coaches learn new ways to not only communicate ideas but also to understand all modes of communication in a whole new way that is natural and easy to practice.
  • Positive self-esteem and increased levels of self-confidence.
  • More life balance financially, spiritually, physically and emotionally.
  • Greater connection to the world and your life purpose.
  • Ability to overcome obstacles and setbacks.
  • Enjoy an abundant lifestyle while making a positive contribution to the world.

Wisdom does not operate on a time or space continuum! Consider your own life: odds are if you reflect back over the times in your life when you grew the most and stretched to become more, those events happened in moments. Perhaps you can recall a certain book you read or experience you had that gave you a new perspective that you didn't have only moments before.

In an instant, wisdom can change your life! Our course has been called an experience of deep insight and wisdom-oriented moments!

Do your homework. You'll find programs that are more expensive than ours. You'll find programs that are more time consuming, taking several weeks or even several months to complete. Some colleges are now even offering coaching courses that last for several years.

In our program, you'll learn how to go out and start helping people. You'll build a powerful foundation from which to launch your new career, but you'll never be "finished" learning.

We continue to support your learning process through our Continuing Education component. Each month we feature the "Next Steps" group coaching webinar, which covers the process of coaching, including defining your target market, how to get your first meeting off on the right foot every time, ways to build your brand, how to deal with difficult clients, keys to long-term coaching relationships as well as how to manage the typical challenges that make coaching such a worthwhile career choice!

How To Become A Life Coach

Tune in to our Introduction to Coaching webinar for a comprehensive overview of Life Coaching and Business Coaching! The Certified Coaches Federation™ CEO, Rod Macdonald, hosts this live webinar to give you the opportunity to learn more about this exciting profession!

Certified Life Coach

Life Coaches provide tools to help their clients live their lives to the fullest. Through the introduction of new perspectives and techniques, which reveal hidden potential and identify limiting beliefs that sabotage growth, effective Life Coaching creates an arena to build new and expanding, constructive beliefs.

Life Coaches support their clients to identify their strengths and weaknesses and then provide strategies for personal development based on their client's strengths. Through this process, Life Coaches can, AND DO, focus and guide their clients to create an individualized plan of action to turn their intentions into reality!

Life coaches help their clients identify good habits, which move their lives forward, and bad habits which hold them back. Moreover, it's the coach's responsibility to provide the necessary guidance and support to facilitate their client's objectives.
Life coaches aren't counselors or therapists; they are not usually qualified to diagnose or treat mental health matters. The Certified Life Coach’s primary role is to provide a strategy and support system for their clients to achieve their goals.

Many companies now offer the services of a Certified Life Coach to employees who may be laid off or who are transitioning to retirement. Many leading divorce attorneys pay for a one-hour consultation with a Certified Life Coach for clients who are experiencing the breakdown of a marriage. It's just good business to provide this kind of service.

Certified Business Coach

Compared to Life Coaching, which targets individuals and is focused on personal development and personal goals, Business Coaching is for professionals, executives or organizations who are seeking to achieve professional goals and optimize effectiveness. For Business Coaching, the emphasis is on business expansion, productivity and career development. A Certified Business Coach also takes into consideration work and life balance concerns when working with professionals.

Our Business Coach Certification Program allows executives and corporations to measure their return on investment, usually, within weeks!

Successful completion of the Certified Coaches Federation's Life Coach and Business Coach Training Course gives you the confidence, knowledge and skills (both as a Certified Coach and as a business professional) to go out and help others accomplish their goals and turn their professional and career aspirations into reality.

As a Certified Coach Practitioner Course graduate, you are not only a Certified Coach, you are a Certified Coach Practitioner which allows you to use your coaching skills as both a Certified Life Coach and/or a Certified Executive Coach. You don't have to take a separate course. Our coaching concepts are so versatile and transferable that they can easily be utilized in both Life Coaching and Executive Coaching. Only Certified Coaches Federation™ graduates are licensed and approved to include Certified Coach Practitioner™ on their coaching business card and other marketing materials. For more information on our Certified Coach Practitioner Course, please review our Certified Life Coach Training Course Summary below.
