Choose the right program and Wellcoaches has one of the best. I have almost every certification you can think of as a coach, but most of those certifications do not come with research and evidence-based curriculum. They do not go deep and wide. If you get certified with Wellcoaches, you will not only have the tools you need to be successful as a coach, but will have the tools that you need transform someone's life.
