Become A Level 2 Relationship Coach

The RC2- Professional Training Program Objective:

RC2 is designed to expand yourself as a relationship coach who can coach couples virtually.

This program is NOT for you if you:

  • Are not called to continue to train with The Relationship School®
  • Don’t want to work with couples
  • Want this to be like therapy

How to Qualify

The first requirement for RC2 Level is to have successfully graduated from RC1.

To aspire to this advanced level of certification you must be fully committed investing yourself to develop your capacity to deal with more challenging clients and issues. This training will build off RC1 and feel like a natural progression. You will be challenged beyond your current competencies and you might feel like a beginner again, especially when you get to couples or the 180. However, you will indeed graduate with a whole new level of confidence in the coaching seat.

To qualify and be accepted into the RC2 advanced Level you must apply as per the process provided below. Your RC1 graduation does qualify you, but to be accepted you must go through the application process.

We want students in this program who are committed to increasing their self-value/worth. Why? Because at the end of the day that’s what you are teaching others to do. And if you can’t value yourself, it’s going to be hard to show someone else how to do it.

Prerequisites to join

  • Be a certified RC1 (rare exceptions considered)
  • Have taken DPIR and/or been a TA for DPIR course
  • Pass a warrior exam where you share of your knowledge of the Interpersonal IntelligenceTM Map as well as the principles and objectives of our work
  • Demonstrate your embodied knowledge that you know how to sit with people
  • Be willing to represent The Relationship School® in a strong way
  • Payment, hunger, and a desire to grow
