Professional ICF-Certified Coach Program

Discover how to become a "person of influence" who motivates people to reach greater levels of success in life.


The New Vibe Training Professional Coach Certification program will equip you with everything you need to launch your career as an ICF-certified coach, a business owner, or coaching in your workplace…


You will be trained in the language, strategies, tools, and the understanding of being human needed to generate life-changing results in your clients, employees, or customers.

Why New Vibe Training?


Our professional coach certification program is an ontological curriculum. Which means it's a study of "being." When you finish, you'll have a deep awareness and insight into BEING HUMAN. In addition, you'll gain invaluable wisdom, which will help you motivate and inspire positive change in the lives of others.

You'll learn how to be a "person of influence" and how to use your influence in partnership to ignite greater levels of success in others. You'll also learn how to become a master communicator, which is the key to coaching and moving people forward to "get unstuck."

After completing the 60 ICF-approved coach-specific training hours (ACSTH), you'll graduate with the designation of Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and emerge with the language, skills, and passion for embracing the professional coaching field. You'll also have a sense of why a career as a professional coach is a life-changing and life-affirming commitment.


Training the best coaches to change the world.


Our program takes nearly five months to complete. Which gives you time to fully understand what personal and professional coaching is all about and to soak in all the strategies and techniques you need to be a guiding light for your clients and those you lead.

You'll experience a variety of methodologies such as one-on-one sessions with a Mentor Coach, sessions with your peers where you'll take turns coaching each other, and coaching sessions with private clients, which allow you to fine-tune your skills through real-life coaching situations.

Classes are online and interactive, and feedback is provided throughout. You'll receive all the essential elements you need to generate powerful coaching engagements with your clients.

All modules of the course are held in English.
