What is a Certified Life
back to FAQ's
As the world of Life Coaching continues to explode, many
people over the years have asked me this very

First, a Certified Life Coach is someone who has taken
the extra step to receive additional training in their
chosen field of work, which is a very good thing.
It means that they have attended an intensive weekend
workshop, or participated in a course that could have
taken months to complete, that shows they have a certain
degree of drive and passion for their work.
Because there are no state licensing boards that oversee
certifications, anyone can create certification
workshops. Here is what your certification through David
Essel's Life Coach Universe™

organization who has major endorsements from high
