A Certified Retirement Coaching Program Designed For You!
This program and certification puts you a step above because it:
1) Takes you through the program first, so you develop first-hand knowledge and insight into what it takes to retire well and so that you feel confident coaching others.
2) Turns you into a baby boomer and retirement expert. A Certified Retirement Coach should know as much about the transition from work-life to home-life as possible. That means understanding the five keys area of retirement and having the tools to create Aha moments in each one of them. The sheer depth of our content will keep you engaged and constantly accumulating new knowledge and skills.
3) Teaches you how to be a coach. Many certifications talk about the retirement landscape and where coaches fit in, but fall short of providing them with actual coaching skills and techniques. From pocket questions, to one-on-one techniques, and group workshop facilitation, we give you a duplicatable process that helps you get results with clients… and build a business, big or small, to call your own in a booming industry.
4) Gives you added purpose, direction, and the ability to become part of an exclusive group of people who are creating a major movement and paradigm shift in retirement planning by shifting the focus from money to the body, mind, and spirit aspects of life in retirement.
“Having been a student of retirement and the retirement experience since the mid-80’s, I wasn’t sure what might be added to the body of knowledge, but (in modern parlance) OMG!!! What you have put together is so spot on for baby boomers, with the raw truth that exists for so many.”
5) Meets you where you are at. Whether you are still working, already retired, caring for an aging parent or adult child, back in school, taking other courses, or just want to improve your own thoughts and understanding for your own retirement, you can work our self-paced course into your existing life and schedule.
6) Makes sure our program is right for you before you make any financial commitment. Our first module is free so that you can tap into our knowledge base and experience the benefits of going through the certification right away. The proof is in the content and we’re so confident you’ll like it… and be able to use it right away, that we also back it with an iron-clad 30-day money back guarantee. (*See full refund policy below)
7) Helps you launch your business. One of the biggest challenges facing this industry is that once people get certified they are left on their own to figure out how to get the word out and start making money. We have an entire suite of sales and marketing tools and templates to help you establish yourself and get your first client. Newsletters, seminars and workshops, websites, online guides and quizzes, and more make it easy to make a big splash after certification!
The Certified Professional Retirement Coach program includes 9 modules and blends opportunities for self-study, with short insightful videos, as well as opportunities to interact with other students. You won’t be forced to watch hours of bland PowerPoint videos or be required to struggle through a bunch of poor audio recordings.
You’ll be engaged, have opportunities to develop new knowledge and skills, while connecting with like-minded people.
“I learned a lot about the evolution of the concept of retirement and increased my knowledge about the “dark side” which is so important when educating others. I’m in this age group and so much of the information I learned rang true… I am so excited for what it can mean for people to live intentionally during retirement.”

“Retirees will need to develop a wide range of skills that they have not focused on in the past. The most impactful thing I experienced is the realization that for most retirees their identify and self-worth is tied tightly to their work persona. They have spent most of their lives perfecting this persona, that will now, to a large degree, need to change.. They have very little insight into what they will need to do or what is involved with this change. It confirmed my decision to narrow my life coaching niche to retirement coaching.”
