Our Life Coach Training Programs

The Life Purpose Institute prides itself on being the most personal coach training available. Our focus is to train and certify successful, competent coaches. With small class sizes, each student is able to practice, get extensive feedback on their coaching, and develop their skills and personal style. Each student receives personal time outside the class to review practice sessions and fine tune their own unique marketing and/or transition plan. When students demonstrate competency in their coaching, as well as having an effective marketing strategy, students are certified by the Life Purpose Institute. Our Coach Training is advanced & accelerated so prospective students must have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience so that we can assure their success in our program. Our track record of personalized training and lifetime marketing support differentiate us from any other life coach certification school.

Life Purpose Institute will reasonably accommodate qualified students with a disability so that they can attend a program. Please email us at info@lifepurposeinstitute.com or call us at 858-484-3400 with any questions or requests for accommodation.
