FAQs About Online Life Coach Certification

Let’s help you get on track with the Certified Life Coach (CLC) program by answering some frequently asked questions about the course, career opportunities, and our life coach certification programs:


What is the most recognized coaching certification?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the world’s most recognized and respected coaching program certifier and accrediting body. Their accredited life coach programs, which include life and business coaching, are considered the gold standard in the life coach training industry. 

Our CLC program is accredited by ICF and the Certified Coaches Alliance (CCA), another internationally esteemed accreditation body for life coaching certifications.


What qualifications do I need to be a certified life coach?

There are no mandatory prerequisites to becoming a life coach; everyone can be one, regardless of their personal background. But to be a successful life coach, you must embody the quality of compassion and have a strong drive to help others. You will also want to participate in a coach certification program.

If you’re joining a course like our CLC program to become a life coach, you may also need to fulfill specific requirements such as being of legal age and having adequate comprehension of the program language (English).


Can you become a life coach online?

Yes, you can become a life coach without leaving the comfort of your home through an online certification program. Our online life coach training course is delivered through live web conferencing. You’ll be guided through an education program accredited by the ICF and taught by the best qualified life coach instructors, all in an interactive online classroom. All you need is an internet connection to get your life coach certificate through the training course!


Can I be a life coach without coach training and certification?

You can, in theory, call yourself a life coach without getting certified through a certified coach program; however, online life coach certification demonstrates to your clients that you’re serious about the craft and your coaching practice. Certification shows that you’re better trained and experienced to effectively help people, allowing future clients to build a sense of trust in you from the get-go.

You can become a certified life coach through our CLC program. After completing the course and affiliation requirements, you will receive a personal “Certification Authentication Web Page” that prospects can use to authenticate your professional life coach standing as a graduate of our ICF-accredited program. You will also receive a certificate that you can print and frame, as well as a “Document of Certification” that certifies the number of training hours that you’ve earned. 


How long does life coach certification take to complete?

The ICF accredits our CLC program for 60 Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH), which fully meets the ICF Associate Coach Certification (ACC) credential requirement. This coach training program consists of two-hour classes once a week for twenty-four weeks.

You can enroll in the standalone life coach program to get certified, gain sixty training hours, and launch a successful coaching practice, or choose the CLC Platinum package, to add 10 ACC Mentoring hours as well 100 ACC coaching hours, and apply for an ACC credential.


Will there be a test at the end of the life coach program?

Apart from several assignments for evaluation throughout the life coach program, students must also complete a final exam. To pass, you must receive a score of at least 80%. Should you fail, you’ll receive another chance to rewrite the course exam within thirty days.

Free: List your Profile on Symbiosis Café
