Not Everyone Who Applies is Approved to Join RCT

After nine enrollment periods, we’ve learned that it takes more than just an interested person to become an effective relationship coach.

That’s why we have this application process. Here’s how it works…

Step 1: Apply

Our application and selection process is one of the ways we set ourselves apart from other coaching programs.

Step 2: Schedule an Interview

Your Student Success Coordinator (SSC) is trained to screen prospective students to ensure mental and emotional readiness for the challenging coursework ahead. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and will be provided with additional information that enables you to feel clear and confident in your decision.

Step 3: Play all-out and grow

Once you’re enrolled in the program, you’ll be expected to show up and play all-out, which means finding your edge and pushing yourself to be present and engaged.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the training

9 months (September – May) or (March – December)

What does it cost?

After you apply our person will explain the pricing structure.

Is there a payment plan?

 Yes. You make your deposit to secure your spot in the next course and then before the first day of class you will set up automatic payments for the remaining balance due.

What is the coaching model?

 It’s called Present Centered Relationship Coaching and was developed over 15 years by our founder, Jayson Gaddis. Read more about it here.

What will I learn:
  • Self – this is a personal journey, you will be uncomfortable and grow like a weed. 
  • Relationships – you’ll learn our map of how relationships work and how to do them well – this is DPIR Course. 
  • Coaching – you’ll be trained with excellent relationship coaching skills that help people get results, this is the RCT program
What does the schedule look like:
  • Live Supervision Classes: Every other Tuesday at 12:30pm MT 
  • Live Large Group Class with Jayson and supervisors: Thursdays at 12:00pm MT – 1x a month
  • Live DPIR SS growth sessions: 1 Wednesday per month at 12:30pm MT 
  • Self Study: 2 books per semester, practice sessions, client sessions, recorded classes 
How much time will I need to devote to RCT each week:
  • Relationship Mastery: 2-3 hrs/week (watching class recording, homework, partner practice call)
  • RCT: 2-4 hrs/week (live class, homework, practice coaching sessions)
  • Total for both: 4-7 hours per week
What kind of marketing support do you offer in the training and after graduation?
  • We do not provide any marketing support as a part of the training. However, if you want to work for TRS, you will become an independent contractor by coaching for My Relationship Coach (MRC). We will help you build your business by giving you clients to work with (the client will fill out a survey and be paired with the best coach for them). This program is launching May 2021 and the coach will make an hourly wage and work for TRS. 


Who do we coach?

You will see 1 real client with six sessions each over the course of the 9 months and maybe more. These sessions will be spread out so we can see your progress

What is the difference between therapy vs. coaching?

Therapy is typically a supportive environment only, whereas coaching provides support and also challenges the client to grow with clear relationship goals and objectives.  Listen to this podcast or read this blog if you’re interested in hearing more about this topic.

Is this program accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF)?

No, we like to run things a little differently.  Jayson continues to choose to develop things internally here and is creating the highest standard for relationship coaching that exists. You will be a Certified Relationship Coach by The Relationship School. By the end of 2022, we will be accredited by ICF if all goes well.

Do I need to be in a romantic relationship to do this training and become a relationship coach?

No, not at all.

Would I be a good coach if I’m still struggling with some of my own relationship issues?

Relationships are a constant work in progress.  It’s okay if you are still learning and growing, as long as you are able to take personal responsibility, have empathy, and are open to growing.

Do I need to be a therapist or have a background in psychology to do this training?

No. However, every class, we have therapists join our coaching program

Are graduates of this program already working full-time or part-time as relationship coaches?

Some want to coach professionally and some just want to help themselves and those around them and this gives them the tools to do so.

Are there any In-person events?

One optional in-person event at the graduation weekend in Boulder, Colorado (subject to change based on Covid-19 restrictions)

Who is this Certification Training For?

You may be asking, “Is this program right for me?” Great question! If you say yes to any of the following, I think you’re in the perfect place:

  • I’m very into learning about people
  • I’d love to have a career helping others
  • I want a lucrative career with flexibility and the freedom to choose my own hours
  • I want to know the latest cutting edge approaches to relationship challenges
  • I want a unique certification that stands out in the marketplace and actually makes a difference in the world

Regardless of gender, sexuality, religion, race or your relationship status.

Who is this Certification Training NOT For?
  • This training is NOT for you if you want to stay a victim and stay stuck in a victim model of healing
  • This is not for you if you want a safe place to work your stuff out
  • This is not for you if you are looking for the training or its leaders to help you feel safe and heal
  • If you are stuck in blame and cannot take personal responsibility, then this training is definitely not for you
