YB12 Life Coach Academy Course
Our vision since 1989 has been to make a difference in the lives of one million people through the delivery of quality personal development and business advisory programs.
Since that time, hundreds of thousands of people have already been exposed to our various programs, seminars, workshops and consultancy opportunities. As our business growth continues, so too has the requirement for us to ensure the highest possible standards of delivery by our practitioners.
It is for this reason that we have chosen the International Coaching Federation (ICF) credentialing and application path. We foresee a time when all forms of life and business coaching are regulated to such an extent that it becomes mandatory for all coaches to hold credentials such as those offered by the highly regarded ICF.
We’re different to most other Life Coach Academies in several ways:
- Our course is approved by ICF to prepare you for their Associate Certified Coach (ACC) Credential – but we don’t just train you and forget you.
- We offer you the opportunity to join us at YB12 Coach as one of our team members where you’ll have access to pre-written courses that have a long history and depth and breadth, a proven marketing system and best of all, an extremely high level support system that is live and ongoing in many locations.
A Point of Difference Is Nice, But It’s What Makes Us Unique That Matters the Most.
As far as we know, YB12 Coach is the only organisation globally in our space that offers such a comprehensive post training consultancy opportunity that is a dynamic, genuine and proven support system like no other. If you take the time to investigate, you’ll see for yourself that YB12 coaches globally are enjoying great success as coaches, trainers and business advisors. Not all of our Life Coach Course graduates choose to engage with us at this level, but those who do, experience a support system like no other.
Our goal is to offer our Life Coach Course in all markets we currently operate.
Number of student contact hours included in program.
Our course is delivered over 62 hours.
There are additional homework activities and self-directed study hours.
You will also receive 10 hours of dedicated one-on-one mentor coaching with our Global Director, Rachel Wade, and/or our appropriately credentialed support team.
The YB12 Life Coach Course is designed for those looking to obtain an ACC Certification.
It satisfies all the requirements necessary to get the ACC. This includes 62 hours of ICF Core Competency training.
The 62 Core Competency hours are earned by taking one of our online or live courses.

How the program is delivered:
We’ve chosen what we consider to be a highly effective path to the ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC). That pathway is the ACSTH (Approved Coach Specific Training Hours). This is considered by ICF to be the à la carte pathway providing students a high degree of flexibility.
As previously mentioned, our delivery method is optionally ‘online or live’ for the simple reason that it presents students with the convenience of being able to study regardless of their circumstances.
