Yes, you can get a weekend certification to be a coach. You can take an online course for $90 in ninety days and get a paper to hang on your wall that says you are a master coach. You can coach with NO training at all and no apologies. Just because you can does not mean you should. We do not need to lower the standards to accommodate more people who want to call themselves a coach. We do not owe anyone certifications or membership cards. We need to eliminate more than we embrace BECAUSE being a coach is more than just a calling. It is a responsibility.
