"ILCT has been an amazing program for me. The breadth of courses, the experience of the instructors, and the community that is fostered with the students, faculty, and alumni help you grow beyond the end of your program. It is hard to put into words the personal transformation that is fostered through such a professional program but you become a better person because of it. Only one problem...So many incredible courses to choose from, hard to decide what to take!" – Michelle A., MSEd, MSEC, CWC

"I completed three courses with ILCT and recently earned the Board Certified Credential. ILCT offered a flexible schedule and diverse array of classes that meet certification requirements and matched my specific areas of interest. The instructors were all active in their own coaching practices and brought a rich set of experiences to each class. ILCT's materials and web site were invaluable tools supporting the learning process. I would highly recommend this program for anyone seeking to learn coaching or enhance their skills." -Larry T., BCC, MA

I'm a recent graduate of ILCT. I've been moved to offer this testimonial about Ellen Ritter because she has truly been a great friend and helper to me. Life coaching is my second career which I have chosen at a mature point in my life. Ellen has always been there for me as a cheerleader telling me I could do it--and this when I really wasn't sure I could. While at ILCT, Ellen was - and still is, as I have later gone about being a coach- a great aide and advisor still giving me ideas about coaching techniques. With all the candor and honesty I can muster, Ellen is truly thoughtful, warm and caring. She is ILCT's Dean of Students, but still finds time to rescue individual students from floundering - as I should know. ~ Melvin S., JD, MSW
"I've done my Foundational Course and Coaching Skills Practicum with an absolutely inspiring, wise and life changing teacher Lynn Meinke. Lynn taught us that in order to truly and professionally take care of your clients, you should ensure superb care of yourself. These two classes contributed significantly into making this happen for me: I've discovered my life purpose and personal values, built confidence in my skills and ability to master coaching relationship with a client and found my way of contribution to making world better by revealing life coaching power. In these classes I was rewarded by significant personal inspiration and published two books in half a year and my third one is on it's way! I just wish I'd found ILCT and life coaching earlier in my life." – Ausra B.
"I love the ILCT staff (Ellen, Kelly, and Amy). I've dealt with all 3 on different occasions and what I love most about them is their professionalism yet their ability to balance that with warmth and being down to earth." -– Fatima A.
"I am continually impressed with the professional quality of the training and support ILCT provides to aspiring coaches and just wanted to say that I’m proud to be affiliated with such an organization. I recently fulfilled the ILCT coursework for the BCC certification, passed the BCC exam several weeks ago, and am now launching my coaching practice as a BCC. I greatly appreciate the on-going training and support you offer your graduates through these monthly teleconferences." – Irene E., M.S., B.C.C.
"Thanks for the quality of your classes, ILCT, that I can be proud of telling people about." Susan H.
“I cannot say enough positive things about my experience as a student at ILCT! Every step of the way I received support from the faculty, students and staff. Not only did I receive a high quality education in coaching, but I was able to develop my coaching skills with application and structured peer groups. I was mentored and guided when choosing new classes that fit my goals and mission. After completion of the program, I continue to receive support from ILCT as I prepared for the BCC exam, and still continue to receive mentorship and guidance as my coaching business evolves with my mission and purpose. I highly recommend ILCT to anyone entering the coaching field or interested in learning coaching techniques.” – Katie K., BCC, BCS
"As a professor of positive psychology and coaching psychology at Harvard Medical School I am highly aware of the quality of numerous life coach training programs. . .

A high educational standard is consistently maintained. I'm very pleased to have graduated from this program myself, and to have personally experienced the benefits." – C.K., Assistant Clinical Professor, Harvard Medical School, Department of Psychiatry
