How does the Digital Coaching Certification process work?
We offer free Digital Coaching Certification (the first of its kind) and free open sourced training. Every coach should go through the certification process. The first step is to become a Coach.me member.
Certification generally takes about two months.
There are four components to Coach.me certification:
- Create a profile Make sure your coaching profile is complete and has all necessary elements. If you miss any of these, your certification cannot be completed.
- Take the exam It's multiple choice and based on the information in the Resource Center. When you pass the multiple choice portion of the exam, there’s an essay question.You’ll find out right away if you passed the exam. It can take up to 3 weeks for your essay to be graded. This will not delay your certification. Continue working through the steps below while you wait for that!
- Coach four clients (instructions for promo code for free month here)
- Experience coaching as a client (instructions for promo code for free month here)
Finally, get your transcripts reviewed. Once you have coached four people and completed being coached by another coach, you're ready to request review for certification. We'll take a look at your chat transcripts to verify that you understand how to apply the concepts of digital coaching. (This is why it usually takes about two months—if you jump right in and coach four people through habits starting on your first week, you could be ready to be reviewed four weeks later. Most coaches procrastinate here, though, and it holds up their certification. Don't be one of them!)
Once you're certified, your profile appears in our coaching directory and clients will be able to find you easily through our app!
