Life Coach Certification

Life coach certification? Become a qualified life coach and join one of the fastest growing professions in the UK!  Well that is what the Ads say anyway but who would actually benefit from acquiring a Life coach certification qualifications?
Well, they are intended primarily for individuals who wish to make the formal transition to coaching as an additional or new profession.

Life coach certification therefore will be beneficial for those whose everyday job puts them in contact with people but who would not think or consider calling themselves coaches; people such as human resources managers, advisors, NLP practitioners, counsellors and mediators, mentors and others including senior managers of small businesses who may wish to inspire and coach their colleagues and staff towards success.
These types of people are already realizing that their current professional activities already involve coaching and want to work permanently in an environment where people wish to change their lives positively.

Life coach certification  was needed, because “coaching” began as a helping activity, that was initially unregulated. Many training courses became accredited in different ways so it is important when considering Life coach certification in Scotland – that the learner should confirm that the provider is committed  to a National Occupational standard.
The PSG  Diploma Scotland in Life and Executive coaching certification more than fulfils that basic criteria, in that it is a nationally recognised Life coach certification qualification and is accredited by bodies such as the Institute of Leadership and Management, (Scotland) and FETAC (Ireland).
Every student taking the Life coach certification Diploma course receives learner support in the form of studying membership of both Association for Coaching (AC) and the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), who helpfully provide each learner with a strong library of qualification support, from reading lists and study guides to regular feedback on Coaching sector news developments and job opportunities.

Life coaching or Life coach certification are not regulated in the Scotland nor is it likely to be in the near future primarily because coaching is not defined as a medical or therapeutic profession. Any responsible person can set up as a life coach and indeed many therapists and counsellors, former business managers and others have already done so. Nevertheless, Life coach certification is an increasingly important constituent in a private practioners toolbox in order to attract clients and demonstrate that you have a coaching knowledge base.

From a potential employers perspective – Life coaching certification bestows an important accreditation which enhances a CV and informs them that the job candidate has embarked and successfully completed a rigorous course of study which qualifies them to interact, coach and train people within all types of organisations.
