FAQ: How can I join Relationship Coaching Institute if I can’t afford the enrollment fee?

First, as an aspiring coach, it’s time for a mindset shift. Instead of “I can’t because….” it’s time to start asking yourself (and others) “How can I…?” There is always a way, and if you train your brain to look for new solutions to problems, you will be able to find the way to accomplish what you want. A bonus is that you will become a more positive person and more effective coach.

When you’ve exhausted all possibilities, remember this- you haven’t.

FAQ: Can I join RCI if I have no training or experience in coaching or other helping profession?

Yes! You would need to take our Professional Coach Training to learn foundational coaching skills in addition to our relationship coach training. This program is approved by the International Coach Federation and awards you certification as Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and applies towards ICF certification if desired.

FAQ: Can ANYONE become a Relationship Coach?

Almost anyone, especially, if you have the following characteristics:

  • Passion: you are passionate about relationships
  • Purpose: you have a strong desire to help others
  • Experience: you have enough life and relationship experience to relate to and mentor others (you don’t have to be perfect, our struggles are our best teachers)
  • Training/Mentoring: Coaching is a distinct profession with specific skills that cannot be learned from a book

    FAQ: How does Relationship Coaching Institute compare with other relationship coach training programs?

    Founded in 1997, Relationship Coaching Institute is the first and largest relationship coach training organization. We are the pioneer and leader in the field of relationship coaching. While impressive, that’s just history.

    Relationship Coaching Institute is the ONLY relationship coach training program that unapologetically specializes in personal relationships, relationship coaching for singles and couples. We are NOT a “coach training supermarket” and are proud that we do ONE thing VERY well.

    And, what dramatically sets us apart is that we are a Business Development Program specifically designed to help you build a highly successful relationship coaching practice (see above FAQ). We don’t “sell” training by itself, EVERYTHING you need to be a successful relationship coach is included when you join RCI.

    Warning- Do NOT select your coach training program by comparing price. In the real world you get what you pay for, and discount training programs are a waste of your time and money as they can’t possibly provide you the high quality training and support you need to be successful.
