Do I have to have to be accredited to begin practicing as a life coach?
No you may begin practicing as a Certified Professional Life Coach as soon as you receive your certification from the Women’s Coaching Academy.
Please keep in mind one of the major benefits of having a certification such as the one you will receive from WCA is credibility. Most clients will want to know you have been formerly trained as a coach. Looking for information about the ICF, you may visit our Accreditation page.
What is your refund policy?
We do not offer refunds however, we do offer you 100% satisfaction guarantee. We stand behind our program and are confident that you will be satisfied with your life coach training. If for some reason you are unable to pass your final exam you may retake the course and/or exam as many times as needed to receive your life coach certification.
If you have completed the entire program, submitted all assignments on time and have paid any balances owed; you may repeat the program as a refresher course at no cost to you one time within the 12 months following your completion. Your student center will always remain accessible to you as long as your payment account is in good standing.
What if I cannot complete the program once enrolled?
If for some reason you are unable to complete your training once enrolled we can freeze your enrollment for up to 12 months from the date of program withdrawal.
Please keep in mind that we are not a lending institution and do not charge finance charges or interest on outstanding balances. All balances owed are due within the 12 month period regardless of enrollment period to avoid collection.
How does your payment plan work?
We offer an affordable payment plan for our live life coach students. Our payment plan will allow you to get started with your life coach training (for this option students must be registered at least 7 days before class start).
Your payment balance will be split into equal monthly payments. If you choose the payment plan at least 75% of your balance must be paid and your account must be in good standing in order for you to access to the final module. Please take this into consideration prior to enrollment as you will not be allowed into this module until this amount has been received.
Once your deposit is received you will need to complete and return a payment agreement. An automatic payment withdrawal will be made every 30 days until the balance is paid in full. Payments are considered late 48 hours past their due date at which time a $25 late fee will be charged. Accounts more than 7 days late will be suspended and an additional $50 reinstatement fee will be assessed. Students must notify us of payment issues prior to suspension to avoid a request for the full balance. Any balance left unpaid for more than 30 days will be sent to collections and will be pursued to the max extent allowable by law.
How does your scholarship work?
The Changing the World partial scholarship is awarded in a very limited capacity. Financial need and current funding assist in determining eligibility. Each application is reviewed individually.
