The Top 5 Best Life Coaching Certification Programs Online

Here you will find the five best life coaching certification programs online. When I wanted to become a Life Coach, I wish I had this list. That is why I compiled it for you. Not all online life coach training is created equal. You want a life coaching course that is reputable and preferably a member of one of the following: International Coach Federation, National Board of Certified Counselors, or Board Certified Coach.

You also want to make sure that the life coaching certification program is longer than a few weeks. When you graduate you want to be able to offer your clients something of substance and value. A course that is only a few weeks long won’t give you the proper tools needed to become a great coach.

So let’s get to it!

Life Coach Certification

1.       Online Therapy Institute and Online Coach Institute

This is my pick for the number one spot on the list for Life Coach Training. Online Coach Institute is approved as a Coach Training Provider by the NBCC’s (National Board of Certified Counselors) CCE (Center for Credentialing and Education) BCC (Board Certified Coach) Program. They offer educational credits and their program is rock solid. Also, they offer different types of certifications depending on your interest.

2.       Transformation Coaching Academy

This is my second recommendation for life coaching certification. Dr. Eve Agee offers an 8 month life coaching course which includes live teleseminars, podcasts, one on one training and the best part is after completing the first part of the class, she will set you up with your very own clients to start practicing and making money right away.

3.       Life Coaching Certification

I recommend this program because of the instructors. It is a relatively short program, only eight weeks long but it is taught by Steven G Jones, Master Life Coach and Hypnotherapist. I admire his work and although the program is short it is jam packed with information. Also, you have life time access to all of his tools.  This Coaching Certification program consists of a step-by-step, easy to understand system that is going to enable you to understand and apply exactly what you need to help others take their life to the next level.

4.      Life Optimization Coaching Certification Program 

This was my forth choice for the best life coaching certification programs but it was close to the one above. Dr Joe Rubino, a Master Life Coach developed this program. Click on his name to read his credentials. This course is self paced and can take up to a year. The Life Coach Training includes videos, audio, transcripts, workbooks and you must pass an exam before obtaining your certification.

5.      Self-esteem Elevation For Children Coaching Certification

This program is my fifth choice if you are interested in coaching children. This is also created by Dr. Rubino. Coaching for children and Teens is becoming very popular. More and more children are being affected by cyber bullying and the teenage suicide rate is increasing. This is a great area to focus your attentions as a coach and a well needed one.

Added Bonus

I have added two more sites of interest. They are not certification sites but they are very informative and they offer many tools for the up and coming coach.


This structured, 52-week e-coaching program based on the international bestseller, Coach Yourself to Success. This online coaching program will help you become more successful in every area of your life, including: money, relationships, career and time. As you work through the practical, easy-to-do weekly assignments, you'll discover you start to attract the opportunities and people you most want. And you'll find reaching your goals much easier. This is an easy way to get started and has the added benefit of direct contact with the Master Coach and author, Talane Miedaner, to answer your coaching questions, as well as the support of an online community of like-minded people who are working to improve the quality of their work and personal lives.
