Life Coaching is becoming one of the fastest growing fields in the world as more and more employers are seeking great listeners and thinkers. The Certified Life Coach course is a comprehensive training program that is designed for individuals who wish to master the skills of life coaching. In working toward The 9 Coaching Masteries of The International Association of Coaching (IAC), you will work one-on-one with a certified master life coach to understand the foundations and ethics of coaching, learn the steps of coaching, and apply coaching techniques in live coaching sessions through virtual mentorship.

The UNF Division of Education, in partnership with The American School of Professional Life Coaching (ASPLC), offers this program as part of its executive leadership offerings. The ASPLC, based in Jacksonville, Florida, was founded by Dr. Elliott B. Rosenbaum, a board certified clinical psychologist and master life coach. Its core mission is to train and credential talented men and women who desire to make a difference in others’ lives through becoming professional life coaches.


Upon successfully completing the program, participants will earn certification through ASPLC and UNF as well as being prepared for international certification by the IAC.
