  • Complete a live interview with Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin or an Assistant Women’s Leadership Coach after completing your 6 coach training sessions.

Your certification term is for a 1-year period and starts the day that your certification is granted. Your initial certification fee is included in the cost of the coach training program.

Upon expiration of the initial term, your certification will automatically renew for a 1-year term, unless otherwise terminated with proper notice. The certification renewal fee is $499 USD, automatically charged to the credit card you provide unless we are instructed otherwise. You will receive a 30-day notification and 7-day notification prior to the expiration of the prior term that your renewal date is approaching and your credit card will be charged.
