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 online 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.
This training is offered in two formats, our regular End of Life Coach Training and our Christian End of Life Coach Training. The basic content of the two online trainings is the same, but the Christian End of Life Training includes Scripture as part of the teaching, prayer, and looks at the subject matter from a Christian framework. Case studies in the Christian Training are based more on ministry settings, and again are viewed from a Christian perspective. Don will share from his own ministry experiences.
Both online trainings prepare students to be certified as CEOL Grief and End of Life Coaches and to be credentialed as ICF Life Coaches.
