Life Coaching Courses

Executive and Life Coaching Courses

Our speciality is developing and running executive and life coaching courses. The aim of these courses is for our students to gain first-rate practitioner-level coaching skills and also confidence in their abilities. Since 2003, these extremely successful courses have enabled hundreds of students to generate positive changes in their lives and provided them with the skills and confidence needed to coach others to do the same.

The full title of the course is the Accredited Diploma in Executive & Life Coaching and this is a part-time course for those wishing to become a coach or to learn coaching skills in order to improve their personal and professional effectiveness.

We offer two practitioner courses, the Diploma in Executive and Life Coaching and the Advanced Diploma in Executive, Life and Neuro Performance Coaching.

Both courses require no prior knowledge of coaching and will take you to a level where you can practise effectively as quality coaches. The Diploma will take you to a practitioner level and the Advanced Diploma to an advanced practitioner level. Either part-time course would be suitable for those wishing to become a coach or to learn coaching skills in order to improve their personal and professional effectiveness.

Both courses are accredited by the LBCAI. (Life and Business Coaching Association of Ireland) This is the longest running Irish professional coaching organisation. You can choose to join other professional organisations such as the International Coaching Federation (ICF) or the AC (Association for Coaching). Note the ICF and AC also have additional criteria for membership including a number of paid client coaching hours. This would need to be built up after qualifying.
