Get paid for your training time

once you complete it. As a new coach, you will be paid a Level B (skilled) student salary. You'll begin by shadowing and assisting other coaches, as you prepare to lead in- and out-of-class sessions. More experienced coaches are eligible for leadership roles, which may be compensated at a higher rate.


To become certified, coaches complete 9 hours of training, both as a speaker and as a coach. You'll culminate your training by helping to lead an actual workshop. Each semester, coaches are required to do at least 6 hours of recertification training.
