A: Ideally a Life Coach would be trained in a classroom setting with an instructor physically present. Unfortunately, this luxury is not practical for many people.

For this reason, many institutions have turned to online training as a viable alternative to meeting modern day needs. In fact, Columbia, Harvard, and Cornell have extensive online programs. Also, Penn, Dartmouth, and Yale offer online classes. Steve G. Jones, while working on his doctorate in education, extensively studied the online programs offered by Ivy League schools.
