Q...What about my CPSC designation. coach career, success coach, certified professional coach
Is this a real certification?

A...Yes. SCI’s Certified Professional Success Coach (CPSC) designation is 100% authentic and real.

There are numerous organizations providing coaching certifications around the World. Coach training programs typically range from two days to 6-8 months and in a few cases longer.

The fact is that there is no government regulation or government agency that sanctions, certifies or oversees life coaching certification. There are private organizations and privately held companies, whether for profit or non-profit, that do accredit or approve educational programs. The school of instruction is not accredited, just the actual course. As in any aspect of education the true value of any credential is measured by the recipient’s ability to deliver meaningful service to the designation, and in this case, become a successful coach for each and every client we serve. 

When you graduate from SCI’s Certified Professional Success Coach program, you will have attained your Certified Professional Success Coach (CPSC) certificate along with the knowledge to becoming a leading authority in coaching, an expert in your industry and we encourage the intention to achieve Mastery as a Success Coach. You’ll graduate with complete confidence to apply your new skills and inspire others to achieve success.


Q... Will I have to take an exam to receive my CPSC designation and certificate?


Yes. To receive your SCI Certified Professional Success Coach certificate, you must demonstrate mastery of the curriculum instructed in our Success Coach System. Keep in mind that your success is our success and the examination is designed to guarantee a victorious finish to the program, and a time to celebrate your accomplishment. 

We are excellent instructors and Master Success Coach Trainers. We’ve been through the same process and understand the best and most comprehensive ways to teach the program. Our mission is help you learn the program, facilitate your growth and admire how you blossom into your new career as a Success Coach to inspire others. Your success is our primary goal and our responsibility. To reassure our students and if for any reason you do not to pass your final assessment then you can retake the course at no additional cost or work with a Master Coach Trainer one-on-one until you master the information, pass the exam and ultimately receive your SCI Certified Professional Success Coach certificate and graduate.


Will I learn as much in your Tele-Web Course as I would if I learn the course in person? 

virtual coach training, webinar, gotowebinar

Yes. Because we understand the various modalities of education and how students learn our live tele-web instruction is taught by SCI’s Master Coaches and provides students the exact same content we teach in a live seminar. Our seminars are taught in various locations on a limited basis yet our live tele-web course is taught every week at flexible times. The major benefit of this form of education is that you don’t have to lose valuable time traveling and you don’t incur costly expenses for airfare, car rental, taxis and accommodations. The course is taught live and in person and although the interaction with your Master Coach Trainer and your classmates isn’t face to face, the essence of the experience is very similar while you remain in the comfort of your home or business. Many coaches conduct the majority of their coaching sessions over the telephone whether speaking to a group or to an individual and this format will also help develop your communication skills to better serve your clients without being face to face. The format works whether it’s live and in person or via our unique tele-web conferencing.
