4 Certification Requirements

These are the 4 steps to certification. The difference between each level of certification above is the quantity of each requirement below.

  1. Successfully Complete Coach Training Hours. The first step is completing a coach training course. Each 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 course meets for 2 hours, once a week over the course of 24 training sessions. To become a certified coach you must attend 22 of these 24 training sessions.
  2. Work with a practice client. Coaches typically begin working with their practice client around week 5 of their 1.0 course. Working with your practice client will help you gain firsthand experience as a life coach and give you the chance to practice the skills you learn in your training sessions. The CTEDU ACC certification requires 10 coaching hours, the CTEDU PCC certification requires 20 coaching hours, and the CTEDU MCC certification requires 30 coaching hours with a practice client.
  3. Complete mentor coaching. The next, and sometimes most underrated, step toward becoming a certified coach is mentor coaching. Mentor coaching is meeting with a Coach Mentor one-to-one to listen to a recording of you work with a client. In your coach client overview, your Coach Mentor will listen for certain elements in your coaching and give you useful feedback. The CTEDU ACC certification requires 10 mentor coaching hours, the CTEDU PCC certification requires 13 mentor coaching hours, and the CTEDU MCC certification requires 17 mentor coaching hours.
