course instruction

The primary aim of this online life coaching course  is to provide the  student  with the following:

  • Substantial insights into what life coaching is, what life coaches do, what makes life coaching such a special career and what it takes to be successful in the industry.
  • An understanding of some of the most important concepts, skills, tools and techniques that life coaches use.
  • Assistance to help you decide whether or not life coaching is the right career for you, including decision support in the form of tools, recommendations and advice on whether to enrol in the full certification training programme and, if you decide to, how to plan accordingly.

course content:

New Insights Life Coaching 101 is offered as an online life coaching course at the foundation level and consists of three information-packed Modules, each of which includes numerous thought provoking ideas, examples and practical exercises.

  • overcoming inertia and dealing with your ‘what ifs’;

Course commencement and duration:

New Insights Life Coaching 101 offers you complete freedom and flexibility. The only restriction is that you must complete the course within a maximum period of six months of enrolling.

As this is an online life coaching course, you can enrol and start whenever it suits you.

You can study the material and complete the exercises in your own time and at your own pace within the six month period.

By spending just a few hours per week reading the material and completing the exercises and assignments you should easily be able to complete the course within three months or less. If you have plenty of time on your hands you could complete it in as little as just three weeks!

Course assessment AND CERTIFICATE:

The course is assessed by way of:

  • Mini Assignments to be completed and submitted after Modules One and Two. These are not formally marked by New Insights but we do provide comments to help ensure you're on the right track.
  • A One-Hour Exam which you can take when you are ready after completing all three Modules and both mini assignments. This is an open book exam. All questions are of the type True/False, Multiple Choice and variants thereof.

A handsome certificate of completion, in digital format, is issued after successful completion within the six month period allowed.

What you can and cannot do with this course:

This course is not intended to equip you to practice as a life coach (that's the job of its big brother, the New Insights Life Coach Training & Certification Programme).

This course is designed to give you the kind of grounding in – and understanding of – life coaching that will fully prepare you to take the next important step, should you decide that this is the direction you would like to take.

That step would be to enrol in full certification training, such as the New Insights Life Coach Training & Certification Programme, that will equip you to become a professional life coach.

Completing New Insights Life Coaching 101 is not a prerequisite for our certification training.

However, it is strongly recommended if you feel a need to gain a better understanding what life coaching can offer you and whether this is a career you are cut out for, before taking the plunge.
