You will become a certified life coach through our comprehensive 100 hour Certificate of Excellence Life Coaching program that is based on twelve Guiding Principles of Transformational Life Coaching. Life Coaching is an ongoing partnership in which clients have a unique opportunity to deepen their awareness, improve their performance, overcome their obstacles and enhance their quality of life. Coaches use questioning, exploring, reporting, and consistent commitment to move the client forward. With greater focus and awareness of choice, achievement of life goals is accelerated.
What is Life Coaching?
People need support to survive and thrive in the game of life. Life Coaches assist and encourage, without passing judgment or holding anything back. Similar to the idea of a sports coach, a Life Coach helps individuals perform at their highest level professionally, personally and financially. Many clients seek out Life Coaches for help with relationships, careers, communication, motivation, health and spirituality.
Part of knowing how to support someone is discovering what’s keeping them from achieving their goals. Once these challenges are addressed head on, the course is clear to move forward productively. As a Life Coach, you will learn to ask the right questions, listen and give honest and open feedback.

Life Coaching is considered one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial careers in the world. For a relatively small investment you will have the skills to start your own business, earning top dollar for your new expertise, if that is your intention, and you are committed to developing your entrepreneurial skills. Plus, we offer two additional classes for those who are serious about starting a business with their life coaching skills – a 16 hour Business Plan Writing class and a 40 hour Entrepreneurial Support class. However, let us repeat, your success is in direct proportion to the confidence you have in yourself!
We have never had a graduate that did not say that they grew personally. Our coaching program will give you a new way of being in the world – – more self-confident, more direct and more aware. You will learn ways to be clean in your language and thoughts, to gather important information, to focus on clearly defined results, to become an expert in utilizing tools for change, and have the understanding of how to implement strategies for success. All of this will open doors for you to become an excellent communicator which leads to healthy, productive and fun relationships. The benefits of becoming a coach are both personal and professional. Be prepared for surprises in the way your whole life will change as you integrate coaching into your life. The transformational part of the Transformational Life Coaching program begins with YOU. Just having the communication skills to help others realize their life goals without giving advice and trying to ‘fix’ them will change the way you are in the world.
Many of the Life Coaching programs available today offer online or teleconferencing programs. We have found that actual face-to-face classroom time with highly qualified instructors and other motivated individuals is a great way to learn, however, our online classes offer the closest thing possible to face-to-face classroom time with continued support from our experienced and professional coaches.
The biggest difference, however, is that we provide you highly motivated clients to coach in person or on the phone starting the second weekend (or about the fourth or fifth week in class). We provide an on-going opportunity for you to meet new clients to coach monthly. Our goal is to support you as you develop you Life Coaching skills and ultimately your business, if you choose to.
As a Life Coach you have unlimited opportunities. Our program teaches you to coach via the telephone, via the internet and in person, one-on-one, with couples and with groups and organizations. The only limits you will have are those you put on yourself – – and we will help coach you out of those!
The first 20 hours are taught in a weekend format, consisting of Friday night 6 pm to 10 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm. After that first weekend you can decide how you want to complete the following 80 hours of the program. You can choose either four more weekends, or one or two nights a week over the next 3 to 6 months. And, we do have the option for you to mix and match the schedules so you don’t have to ever miss a class.
The tuition for the 100-hour program is only $1800, plus books. Many students ask why our tuition is so reasonable. Our answer is simple. We are a nationally accredited college by the ACCET (Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training) and have chosen to adopt a ‘community college’ tuition structure. For this reason, Life Coaching is a part of our Mind-Body Transformational Associate Degree.
20 hour Life Coaching class must be paid in full before attending the class. However, if one signs an enrollment agreement for the 100 hour Life Coaching program with Admissions they can divide the total payment of $1,800 by the number of months they are in the program. A $25 application fee is required at the time of enrollment for the 100 hour program.
Yes, you can make monthly payments on the additional 80 hours of coursework, the first 20 hour weekend course, however, must be paid in full.
In the beginning you will be the coach and the client. These sessions give you an excellent opportunity to get some great Life Coaching for yourself, so that you are really ready to serve the public. By the second weekend or about the 5th week in class you are coaching the general public. You are supervised every step of the way. We have found that by the 3rd weekend in class you are coaching your first clients outside of class, often times for a fee.
Yes, we’re are licensed by the Arizona Board for Private Postsecondary Education and nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training.
Yes, the 100-hour Life Coaching classes can 100% apply toward an Associate’s Degree in Mind-Body Transformational Psychology.
