Open to limitless possibilities through coaching.

As a business owner (or aspiring business owner), you’ve likely explored other ventures in the past that just didn’t fit. They were too specific, situational, or rigid, and while they may have been applicable at the time, you couldn’t see the long-term benefit of your investment.

The professional skill set of coaching, on the other hand, provides limitless possibilities. Every iPEC student receives a solid foundation of coaching skills, systems, and processes that enables them to coach anyone, on anything, at any time.

So whether you want to travel the world or impact your community, you’ll be able to structure your day and your offering around your (and your ideal clients’) needs. You’re only limited by your imagination.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I get my first client?

When you enroll in iPEC’s Professional Coach Training Program, you aren’t just learning how to be a coach, you’re also learning how to be a successful entrepreneur.

Learning how to operate and market a business is an essential part of any successful solo venture. With our business development training (Quick Start), you’ll gain a solid foundation of entrepreneurial skills, strategies, and best practices… so you’ll not only be prepared to be a great coach but a great business owner too.

And, when paired with your very own Success Coach, you’ll be more than prepared when it comes time to officially launch (or scale up) your coaching practice.

Read the article, "How do I get my first coaching client, anyway?" by Admissions Coach Theresa for more perspectives on the topic and for a great story on how she got her first client.


How much should I charge?

The 2020 Sherpa Executive Coaching Report states that coaches earn the following average hourly rates:

Executive Coaches: $360

Business Coaches: $247

Life Coaches: $198

You can certainly set your rates higher or lower than these averages based on the market you serve and your own values. You can also start at whichever rate feels best and tailor as you go.

Both resources are included in your tuition and are intended to support you as you launch (and grow) your thriving coaching business.

Do you offer payment plans, scholarships, or financial aid?

iPEC offers a number of payment plan options to make the tuition manageable. We also offer a loan option that can make payments as low as $150 per month.

Request a one-on-one session with an Admissions Coach to explore which payment options are best for you. 


How do I choose my specialty?

Your ideal specialty (or niche) will unfold naturally as you progress through the program. Some students have a sense of their niche right away and others are still figuring that out. We encourage you to trust the process. However, this unfolds is perfectly right for you.

As you progress through the curriculum, you’ll gain added knowledge, skills, and tools in one or more of the ten primary coaching fields (listed below) so you can explore various areas where you might focus your coaching.

  • Life Purpose Coaching
  • Relationship Coaching
  • Transitions Coaching
  • Health and Wellness Coaching
  • Group Coaching
  • Small Business & Professionals Coaching
  • Leadership: Executive & Management Coaching
  • Parents & Teens Coaching
  • Couples Coaching
  • Sports Performance Coaching

As you work with your peers and your clients, you’ll learn which types of clients you like working with most, which types of clients you like working with the least and refine a specialty that’s the sweet spot for you.


How do I enroll in the coach training program?

Your first step is to request a conversation with an iPEC Admissions Coach. If you’ve already spoken with one, reach back out and let them know you’d like to enroll.

And then you’ll fill out an application, explore payment options and choose your ideal training location(s).

Your Admissions Coach will support you, step-by-step through the enrollment process and get you set up for the experience of a lifetime.
