What is an Accredited Life Coach Certification?


An accredited professional life coach certification means you have been trained by a professional life coach training company that is accredited by industry bodies, so you can become accredited by these bodies. We recommend choosing to work with an accredited life coach training company to get your professional life coach certification. Why? This means the life coach training company you train with has had their professional life coach certification training audited by an external accreditation body to meet accredited life coaching training standards and requirements. After you have become certified as a professional life coach with a reputable and accredited professional life coach training company, you can then become accredited yourself as a professional life coach.

Understanding what Professional Life Coach Certification and Professional Life Coach Accreditation means:

Therefore, we recognize that a professional life coach accreditation is one step higher than a professional life coach certification.

A typical example found across the world would be in education. Students receive their degree, which is a form of certification, through universities that have themselves been accredited to offer these qualifications.

To put this into perspective with a Professional Life Coach Certification:

Certification as a Professional Life Coach does not mean accreditation. Only individuals who pass a stringent and comprehensive accreditation assessment process will be awarded accreditation. This is how the IAPC&M accredited coaches and/or mentors (and training providers) that are amongst the top 1% in the world.

As a professional life coach training company our training is accredited with:

As a professional life coach training company our training is also endorsed by:

The IRCM is the only independent Regulator in the Coaching and Mentoring Industry providing an Ombudsman Service for the Coaching and Mentoring Industry consumers.

Once a week you will have a 30-45 minute call, where written work is to be shared before submission, comments, hints, tips to each other and general help is the purpose of these calls. Every time students meet: one person is to coach another for 15-20mins, students take roles: coach, client, and others provide feedback. These calls are to be logged, recorded and sent to us for assessment. These calls are for additional student growth and support.

Noble Manhattan Faculty mark all written work, and we turn your thesis into a professional Ebook and return it to you, so you can use this to send to prospective coaching clients. This is a wonderful benefit and an important body of work for you to keep and use in your professional network.

Accredited Life Coach Training – Our 3-Day Residential

As part of our accredited life coach training we provide a 3-day residential experience, at a hotel where your hotel room and meals are all included as part of our training cost.

Day 1

Intensive with Gerard O’Donovan, Europe’s Leading Life & Executive Coach Trainer himself, the CEO of Noble Manhattan. Gerard’s teaching style is upbeat and dynamic! He will teach and introduce you to several coaching techniques and practices, which you will have time to integrate during the day within smaller groups.

Day 2

Led by a Master Coach and Master NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Trainer. This day goes deeper and is slower-paced: overcoming limiting beliefs, timelines, eye accessing techniques, etc. More integration and an overview.

Day 3

Is much faster-paced with several group exercises. You will learn more accredited life coach training techniques and will develop yourself as a coach.

360-hours of training

The Time to Complete the Practitioner Coach Diploma:

The average person takes 10-12 months to complete the accredited life coach training PCD program with us. In some cases we allow 18 months to complete the program (an extension for 6 months can be granted).

Insurance

We can support your professional need to become properly and fully insured even while training with us as a Coach, and of course upon becoming qualified with our accredited life coach training company as a Coach. We recommend Westminster Insurance who are the preferred insurer for the International Coach Federation and we will even help you set up your insurance in the US with Westminster Insurance, just ask.

What do Coaching studies say?

A 2014 Study conducted by the International Coach Federation found that of those individuals who had received coaching experienced an:

  • 80% improved level of self-confidence
  • 73% improved relationships
  • 72% improved communication skills
  • 70% improved work performance
  • 61% improved business management
  • 57% improved time management
  • 51% improved team performance

99% of those surveyed indicated that they were “somewhat or fully satisfied with their coaching experience” and 96% said they would do it again.

Coaching top executives at large companies yields 5-7x the company’s initial investment. To be more precise, in a survey commissioned by the International Coach Federation and conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers it was found that companies that made use of professional coaching for business reasons have noticed an average return on their investment of 7x of their initial investment.

Maximizing the Impact of Executive Coaching, The Manchester Review, Volume 6, Number 1, assessed the ROI at Fortune 1000 companies for developmental coaching for senior-level executives stated the average return was nearly 5.7x the initial investment.

Metrix Global, LLC was hired by a Fortune 500 company to calculate the ROI for a leadership coaching program. The results pointed out that coaching produced a 529% ROI and also fetched other immeasurable benefits to the business, for instance, employee retention.

A professor of clinical education at Drake University, Merrill C. Anderson, at Nortel Networks, calculated employees estimated that their coaching programs earned the company a 5.2x return on investment. It also brought major intangible benefits to the business. It included the financial benefits from employee retention that boosted the returns to 7.8x of the initial investment. You can find the full case study at Coaching the Coaches, Psychology Today, 2004, and Case Study on the Return on Investment of Executive Coaching, Merrill C. Anderson, Ph.D., 2001.

In Forbes in a report about executive coaching, it was reported that corporate America is spending over $1 billion yearly on executive coaching. This rise in coaching is a result of the heightened focus on rising high potential leaders instead of a remedial effort to help to derail employees. And even the leaders themselves say it is working.

In a study conducted by MetrixGlobal LLC, pointed out that companies including Booz Allen Hamilton made an average return of $7.90 for every $1 invested in executive coaching.

In an internal report given by the Personnel Management Association, it was revealed that when you combine training with coaching, individuals increase their productivity by an average of 86% compared to 22% with training alone.

Currently the Coaching Industry is an unregulated industry. There are an extraordinary number of coach training courses all working to cash in on the current unregulated industry, meaning anyone can use a title and charge what they want, but this is changing with the International Regulator of Coaching & Mentoring (IRCM) becoming more and more well known in the world as the industry Ombudsmen. Furthermore customers are now more intelligent and savvy online, they want protection to avoid being scammed. As a professional, award winning accredited coach training company, whoever you choose to train with we recommend:

  • Training with an accredited life coach training provider
  • Training with an accredited life coach training provider endorsed by the IRCM

Look at other factors like who else is in the company, if they hold additional qualifications or experience in fields like: Psychology, Psychotherapy, Counseling or Business Development. What clients has the accredited life coach training company worked with? What visible Google reviews do they have, etc. to determine if a company is reputable or just a want to be.

Work to find an accredited life coach training company that is as much interested in your success after they have trained you as a Coach, as their accredited life coach training!

  • How can they (customer) obtain the credentials (for e.g. 60 hours course, 10 hours of mentoring etc)

After your certificated professional coach training we recommend and support the accreditation route provided by The International Authority for Professional Coaching and Mentoring (IAPCM):

Routes to Your Professional Accreditation

There are three routes to achieving your individual professional accreditation with the IAPC&M.

  1. Accredited Training Provider Course Route (ATPCR) – This route is open to coaches and mentors who have attended and successfully completed a course with one of our accredited training providers. Noble Manhattan USA is an IAPC&M accredited training provider.
  2. Portfolio Route – This route is open to coaches and mentors who have attended and successfully completed a course with a training provider who is not accredited with the IAPC&M.

This route is also available to any coach or mentor who holds or has held a credential or accreditation with another awarding organization, such as ICF, EMCC, AFC, etc.

  1. Acknowledgement of Prior Learning (APL) – As an inclusive organization, the IAPC&M recognizes that there may be times when a coach or mentor may not have attended a dedicated training course, though they may have other relevant qualifications and/or experience. Please contact the IAPC&M to discuss these requirements.

Four Levels of Accreditation

The IAPC&M levels of accreditation are based upon demonstration of several key factors, including the number of hours of training you have received, and the number of hours of actual experience you have. The level that you choose to apply for is reflective of your capability.

  1. Practitioner
  2. Senior
  3. Master
  4. Fellow (usually by invitation to apply)

Except for Fellow, all levels offer you the opportunity to upgrade to the next level. Full support is offered to all our members in this process.

ARE YOU READY TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION THAT REALLY MATTERS ABOUT YOUR LIFE & EXECUTIVE COACH TRAINING?

Do you want to become trained as world class life and executive coach?

When searching for the right coach training company it can be easy to lose focus of your real goals and get lost in all the obviously important and basic decision making points like:

  • Quality of curriculum, trainers, and levels of accreditation and certification you will earn.
