The certification process consists primarily of a forty-eight hour course. The course is separated into four training modules (Modules 1-4), each being twelve hours per module. Although the modules are designed to build upon each other, there is no problem taking each module as your time allows, in or out of sequence. Your hours will be certified for each module. These modules currently are held in South Georgia on Saturdays and in North Georgia Thursday-Saturday. Schedules for both locations are at the bottom of this page. Each module offers a variety for training, workshops and experiential interactive exercises on topics such as: general set up of your business and legal entity, coaching practices, ethics, recovery coaching, addiction/recovery tools, specialty in inner healing and relationship tools, leadership and marketing.
*Please Note: You may become certified with either location as long as the forty-eight hour curriculum is completed.

We want to take a moment to say thank you for the honor of allowing BCA to help you with your goals in becoming a certified life coach. Our first year we certified almost thirty BCA coaches. They will now take what they have learned and begin helping others in their individual life coaching practices.
For us to stay with the high integrity and growth model for our coaches in training, this next year we are scheduling training a little differently.
Certification will be quicker which means it will be more intensive. Due to the individualized nature of what we each do, both locations will be training with our four module system. Each location will have select schedules, trainers and specialties for the needs of each community they serve.
What does that mean for our BCA prospective coaches wanting to be trained and our BCA certified coaches needing continuing education training? There will be more opportunities to be trained in areas of expertise by the coaches at each location.
What does that mean for the trainers? The ability to connect and educate at a different level individually while still in a group setting. Each person will have an opportunity for intensive growth while concentrating on the coaching practice. Due to smaller class sizes, trainers will be able to hone in on those needs more efficiently. These schedules are designed to help new participants complete their course of study in a shorter length of time.
The modules are scheduled on one Saturday every other month for students to have time to watch the additional videos and to complete the homework assignments.
Modules will be available for those who cannot be physically present via Skype or Facebook Live. It is required that at least one module be attended.
In the north Georgia location specialized training is being offered in inner healing and relationship coaching as well as general coaching practices. This training is also scheduled to make the process of certification quicker. In the north location, training will be held once a month for four months. Certification will be able to be completed in a quarter of the time. Scroll down the page for schedule information.
