FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is required to become a Certified Professional Coach?
The most important attribute to becoming a life coach is not a college degree, it’s not years of experience in a helping profession; the most important attribute is a genuine desire to help others. If you have that desire, Fowler Academy's accredited life coaching classes will teach you to deliver excellent, results-driven coaching to every client you’ll serve.
If you are like most of our students, you are the “go-to” person for your friends, colleagues, and associates. You are well-liked and trusted, and you find people are drawn to you for help with their challenges and opportunities. If this is true, you are already coaching - you’re just not getting paid. All you need to make the leap to become a paid professional is a proven life coach training system, effective professional tools, and confidence in your ability to truly help your clients achieve their goals.

A practice client is someone you will need to recruit to act as your life coaching client. Your practice client may be a friend, colleague or even a family member.

Your practice client will need to be available to you on several conveniently scheduled occasions for a total of about four hours. We have created a short video for practice clients, which explains their responsibilities and how they can help you in earning your coaching certificate. It also explains some of the benefits of being a practice client.
