We live in a culture that is uneasy with end of life issues. Yet death is the one reality we must all face.
All will die, and most will experience grief.
Are we prepared and equipped to walk the journey with these people?
Coaching at End of Life’s End of Life Coach Training is an ACTP program (Accredited Coach Training Program through the International Coach Federation). It consists of 142 hours of coach training that is pre-approved by the International Coach Federation. Those who wish to obtain ACC, PCC, and MCC credentials through ICF have the advantage of an easier, stream-lined process as graduates of this End of Life Coach Training program.
The End of Life Coach Training program is divided into three tracks: The Certification Track, The Associate Track, and The Professional Track.
Consider enrolling in one of the Tracks below, or take individual classes toward your goal:
(Click on the links below to go to each Track, or just scroll through the page:)
1. Certification Track (Becoming Certified as an End of Life Coach)
52 hours of class time plus 2 hours of individual mentor coaching will prepare this participant for the certification exam
|This training will prepare the participant to coach individuals who are dying (or who have a loved one dying), and to coach individuals who are grieving.|
2. Associate Track
44 hours of class time plus 12 hours of mentor coaching, leading toward a certificate in Coaching Groups in Grief. This track will complete the required training toward obtaining the ACC Credential through ICF.
|After completing the Certification Track, this participant will spend another 5 days of onsite training (or 44 additional hours of online classes) to receive certification not only as an End of Life Coach for Individuals, but also as an End of Life Coach for groups in grief. The Associate Track enables the student to grow those basic coaching skills taught in the Certification Track, learn the difference between Life Coaching and End of Life Coaching, and complete the training needed in order to obtain the ACC Credential through the International Coach Federation.|
3. Professional Track
44 hours of class time plus 12 hours of mentor coaching, completing the required training toward obtaining the PCC Credential through ICF.
|After completing the Associate Track, this participant will spend another 5 days of onsite Training (or 44 additional hours of online classes). The Professional Track challenges the student to hone their coaching skills from a level of competency to mastery. And this is all completed with a focus on end of life. Graduating from the Professional Track provides all the training needed in order to obtain the PCC Credential through the International Coach Federation.|
These Tracks must be completed in order. Each track builds upon the previous track.
In order to graduate from the program and to be eligible to apply for either your ACC or PCC credential, you will also need to participate in mentor coaching and accumulate coaching hours with pro-bono and paid clients. You may work on these requirements while also taking classes.
