INTRODUCTION TO THE CERTIFICATION
A Certified Life Coach is not a Psychologist or Therapist, but by appropriate training, he/she has become able to assist individuals with a variety of needs affecting his life. Coaching is not telling the person what to do but helping to find a proper solution to his/her problems.
Certification indicates a recognition that the certified person has the skills within an ethical framework to address the needs of the afflicted client. As a Clinical Psychotherapist myself, with a PhD in Psychology, I see the Life Coach as a partner.
METHOD OF STUDY
This program utilizes a similar method of independent learning as EFNA High School Academy. Unlike other programs, the school does not provide books, lessons, manuals, sketches, videos, or any didactic materials. Once enrolled, students will be responsible for studying their subjects using any available educational resources, such as the internet, public libraries, books borrowed from children and neighbors, etc., consequently, the program’ cost is low.
High School Diploma or GED. Some college studies are preferred, but not required. Nonetheless, most of our graduates have a college degree. The applicant must present proof of the educational requirement, usually a copy of the High School Diploma, GED Certificate, or college transcript/diploma.
The student is given a listing of educational topics/course titles to do research on them at any available resource, per above method.
The student submits a written summary up to 3,500 words for each topic/title selected. The summary’s quality is much more important than its quantity of words. The quality of the summary should reflect the essentials for the general understanding of the work presented. The student is given a list of topic/titles from which he/she must select 10 of them. This constitutes the program curriculum, which is given separately by email after registration.
STATEMENTS OPTION INSTEAD OF SUMMARIES
Instead of submitting summaries, the student submits up to 100 relevant statements, regardless of words contained in each statement, for each topic/title. Note that there are not minimum requirements, but the criteria for evaluation will determine when the work presented reflect the essentials for the general understanding of the topic/title.
EVALUATION OF SUMMARIES OR STATEMENTS
The work will be evaluated by the program faculty for approval or given additional statements to satisfy deficiencies, without additional charge. Summaries and statement options will be evaluated based on Content (35%), Originality (35%), Clarity (15%), and (15%) for Effort and presentation.
Class attendance is not required; therefore, no classrooms are needed. All studies are pursued independently, usually based on information obtained by online research. The school will not evaluate any work submitted after payment due date if payment has not been received.

This program was initially a joint project between Education Freedom Network of America, LLC (NJ) and Universidad Libre de Puerto Rico y El Caribe, Inc., San Juan, Puerto Rico. The JOINT project was re-designed as of August 2, 2021, wherein the university upgraded it to a higher level while EFNA made it more accessible to qualified students not necessarily having college education, but at least a high school diploma. The respective board of directors of EFNA and the university, under the direction of its founder and president, will continue joining efforts to facilitate learning and opportunities to free students. After graduation, most students would qualify to pursue additional studies for the title Master Life Couch of Inner Healing from the university.
