1. What is the WISDOM Coach Certification Program?

The WISDOM Coach™ Certification program is designed to help you create a business coaching kids!

As a certified WISDOM Coach, you will be licensed to use The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching Program for Kids™ curriculum (our stories and activities), our coaching tools, and designated marketing tools, in your business.

You will also gain access to our extensive resources for coaches, and can become a member of our private Facebook group where you can network with other WISDOM Coaches from all over the world! Click here to see a list of support you’ll receive.

Our WISDOM Coach Certification program was launched in 2013 and we now have
WISDOM Coaches in over 30 countries using our work to empower kids!

2. Do I have to be a life coach to become a WISDOM Coach?

Although most of our WISDOM Coaches have a coaching, counseling, or teaching background, it is not a requirement.

The most important requirements are to have a passion for empowering kids and a passion for personal development.

Our curriculum is designed to help you be successful with your work with kids. Each skill book contains a Mentor’s Guide (which contains the background information and coaching tips) and a Children’s Guide (which contains the stories, discussion questions, and exercises).

We cover this in more detail in the audio overview. Click here to listen!

3. How long does it take to become a WISDOM Coach?

Our coaches get certified in a “home study” format and everything you need to complete your certification is available on the WISDOM Coach website. You can get started as soon as you enroll!

We recommend budgeting about 14 – 20 hours to get ready for your certification test. Preparation involves going through your new coach training (about 2 hours) and then reviewing The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching Program for Kids Curriculum. Studying is a lot of fun because most of your preparation involves going through the stories and activities you’ll be using with kids (and you will have a lot of “ah ha” moments of your own)!

The test is about 30 questions, and is designed to help you feel confident and ready to use our work with kids. You can reference your materials and take as much time as you need to complete the test.

We’ve had coaches complete their certification in a weekend. Most take a couple of weeks.

4. Do I have to travel?

No! Our coaches complete their certification in a “home study” format which means you can get started right away from the comfort of your own home or office.

You don’t have to wait for a specific training date, deal with time zone issues, or pay hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, on airplane flights, hotel rooms, and other travel expenses!

5. What support will I receive?

At Adventures in Wisdom, our philosophy is that your success is our success.  As a result, we provide coaching resources and community to help you start and grow your business!   You’re not on your own!  Once you have completed your certification, you will receive the following tools/support:

There is an annual renewal of $497 which covers the ongoing support you receive as a WISDOM Coach™. We are often asked what is included in the annual renewal.

Our goal at Adventures in Wisdom is to provide you with a world-class curriculum, engaging Facebook community, and support to help you be successful in your work with kids – and that’s an ongoing process.  In addition to continued use of the curriculum in a business setting, on your renewal date, you also receive:

10. What is the difference between the Home Study program and the WISDOM coach Certification program?

The Home Study program is designed for parents or grandparents to use our work at home with their own children.  It does not license them to use our work outside of their home in a volunteer/business/non-profit setting.

The WISDOM Coach Certification program is designed to support you in coaching children outside of your home.

We have a special license called the WISDOM Institution License that enables a company to certify multiple WISDOM Coaches to deliver services under that company’s business name.
