How To Become A Certified Life Coach
Transform Your Life by Transforming the Lives of Others
At its very best, life coaching is about helping people make profound and lasting shifts in their lives. If you have an innate ability to connect with people and are passionate about helping others, life coaching certification may be for you.
Life coaches help a client make plans, follow through on tasks, and respond to challenges. In this sense, life coaching can be likened to personal training—but instead of focusing on the body, you’ll work on improving your clients’ lives or businesses. Rather than providing a workout routine, you’ll guide them with accountability and encouragement.
Those who complete an accredited coach training program and fulfill their life coach certification requirements are designated “certified life coaches.” By earning your CPC (Certified Professional Coach), your ELI-MP (Energy Leadership™ Index Master Practitioner), and your COR.E Dynamics™ Specialist Certification through iPEC’s comprehensive Coach Training Program, you’ll become a masterful coach, trained to coach anyone, on anything, at any time. In this career path, you have the potential to experience a deep sense of satisfaction by making a positive difference in people’s lives. Many certified life coaches see it as the ultimate win-win profession, as it allows them to do what they love AND make a great living.

More than just a Life Coach Certification
Core Energy Coaching™, a life coach certification process unique to iPEC, is specifically designed to address the limitations of a more traditional coaching approach—by going far beyond just accountability or encouragement.
As a Core Energy™ coach, you’ll have the skills and the know-how to:
- Help your clients explore new goals
- Broaden their sense of what’s possible in their lives
- Empower them to reach their full potential using research-backed techniques and tools
As a coach, you’ll challenge your clients to think bigger and start questioning the “stories” they’ve told themselves and have begun to accept. With proper training, you can become skilled at presenting this kind of challenge constructively and with finesse.
In addition to earning your life coach certification, you’ll have access to iPEC’s library of resources to refine your expertise in the area of life coaching. The specialty library is included in your tuition and comes fully stocked with specialized tools, wisdom, and techniques to support your clients as they tap into their potential. You’ll gain wisdom from experienced coaches in this area and become thoroughly equipped to brand yourself as a life coach.
