Frequently Asked Questions
What does the Recovery Coach training involve?
The CPRC is a 40-hour training that takes place through live online group workshops, follow up calls, practical requirements and self-directed study.
Can I only coach individuals?
Not at all. You can also coach groups that focus on using your coaching skills, as well as any other modalities you are trained in.
What can I do with my certification once I am qualified?
Recovery coaches often run private coaching practices and work with individuals, couples and families. Working at a rehab is a possibility that you can explore too.
How long does it take to become a certified coach?
The length of the theoretical training is delivered over various time frames from five days (live) to about four months in an online format. You are able to start logging your practical hours immediately which is a larger part of the certification and assessment process. Following the completion of your training, we recommend that you strive to complete the certification process within six months.
Is the CRPC training accredited?
Yes! The training is accredited by the International Coach Register (ISO 9001). If you wish to get accreditation following your certification this can be done with any of the professional coaching bodies depending on your professional goals.
What other courses does the organisation offer?
U-ACT and GWEN also offer an International Recovery Wellness Outpatient Programme, a Certified Professional Business Coach Certification, and bespoke workshops and courses for teams, organisations, and communities.
