| PhilosophyCenter is pleased to offer professional training and certification as a life coach through our LIFECOACH Training (LCT) program. Accredited by the International Coach Federation, LCT provides an intensive curriculum of individual study and supervised practice that imparts a working knowledge of philosophical coaching in just 12 weeks. Over the course of the training, the student learns the unique approach, principles, and methods for "deep" life coaching developed by PhilosophyCenter to help clients identify unwitting beliefs and assumptions, clear contradictions, shed false opinions, and make better choices in all areas of experience. The last six weeks of the program are spent in supervised practice during which the student coaches the instructor, then moves on to coaching guest clients scheduled by PhilosophyCenter. Successful completion of LCT leads to designation as a PhilosophyCenter Certified Life Coach (PCLC) with all attendant benefits including assignment of 12 ICF CCE hours.
LCT is designed for:
The benefits of certification include:
Enrollment in LCT is by application only. This requirement is waived for certified life coaches and licensed therapists.
|If you'd like to enroll in the LCT program, contact us to express your interest and tell us why taking part in this training is important to you. Include any background you've had that you feel is relevant, whether or not formal training was involved. Note that completion of at least one PHILO℠ session is a prerequisite to LCT enrollment (may be met as a corequisite with the PHILO℠ session scheduled to run concurrently with the first six weeks of LCT). Once we receive your statement of intent, we'll get back to you within 24 hours to let you know one way or the other if you've been accepted into the program. The decision to invite candidates to enroll in LCT is made at the discretion of the director of PhilosophyCenter. It is generally not open to discussion, and remains in force for a period of six months, after which the student may reapply. Those who reapply and are not accepted a second time are not eligible to reapply again.|

Coaching the Instructor
The student should ring the PhilosophyCenter Direct Access Line each week promptly at the scheduled time and arrange to be in a place where ambient noise and interruptions can be kept at a minimum for the duration of the call. Note that the instructor will wait ten minutes for the student to arrive on the call, failing which class for that day will be cancelled and counted as missed.
By enrolling, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by these Terms of Study.
The PCLC may refer to himself or herself only as a "PhilosophyCenter Certified Coach" or "Certified Coach" but not as a "Certified PhilosophyCenter Coach" or other such variations that may be ambiguous or imply direct PhilosophyCenter staff affiliation. PCLCs practice as independent contractors.
Content and Other Restrictions
Abiding by These Terms
These Terms of Practice are spelled out so that the LCT student will be clear about what the commitment to certification entails and requires. Our commitment is to tirelessly guide and support PCLC candidates from the start of training through certification and afterward, so that they can enjoy a new depth of fulfillment and enrichment in their life coaching practice, and serve as a resource for helping others come to the liberating realization of philosophical self-work.
