Core Transformation
Coach Certification
- Live Online -

Gain the skills, experience, and confidence to become an exquisite Core Transformation Coach!

For many years we chose not to offer certification at any of our trainings, because the time and energy involved in verifying people’s skill took away from valuable teaching time in the classroom. However advances in online meeting capabilities, along with our unique training design, mean that we can now do both. The online training format has several HUGE advantages over the live training format, specifically for certification. These advantages are:

  • No hotel or travel fees, so 100% of your investment goes toward an incredible program.
  • Meeting online gives us the capability to meet in small groups and pair up in separate "rooms" to practice exercises.
  • Meeting online makes it possible to meet over a period of time, so each new skill can be practiced in between webinars. In a live training, this would mean even more cost in plane fares and time off work.
  • This time and money savings means you can devote more time each week to practicing the skills and applying yourself to the homework tasks, rather than working to earn more money or get more time off for travel.
  • Unlike many programs that simply hand over a certificate to everyone who pays money, this certification program actually means something. With three levels of feedback and learning–peer reviews and feedback, small-group mentor review and feedback, and trainer review and feedback–this program offers the opportunity to truly merit your certificate. Because of our values of integrity, at the end of the program we will only certify those who have demonstrated the skills to be a solid Core Transformation Coach.

What You'll Learn

Now backed by research, master the nuances of using Core Transformation as your main modality with clients:

  • Learn how to work with the really difficult clients.
  • Hone your sensory acuity to notice patters the client doesn’t say aloud, and may not even notice.
  • Deepen your facility to use Core Transformation with yourself, including when clients push your buttons, and learn how self guiding and personal examples can help some challenging clients.
  • Gain extensive on-the-ground practice that will accelerate your learning each week. You will practice by providing full sessions within your small-groups, with people directly outside the program, and with those in need in the wider community.
  • Benefit from the learning that comes from each participant recording several sessions, then giving and receiving feedback on these sessions. Receive feedback on these sessions from your small-group mentor, and for final certification, from either Mark or Tamara.
  • Get extensive experiential practice combined with peer feedback and support, mentor feedback and support, and Trainer feedback and support. 
  • Experience 1 CT coaching session with your small-group mentor (and give one CT coaching session to your small-group mentor).
  • Learn the purpose behind each step in the Core Transformation process.
  • Coach each other as coaches.
  • Participate in the 3rd Core Transformation research project, by logging the outcomes of your own experience, and the experiences of those you guide through CT.
  • Learn tips for marketing your practice, get listed on the official CT website, and gain access to written materials and official logo to advertise Core Transformation on your own website.
  • Learn how to best support your clients through the full coach-client relationship from first contact to last session.

How You'll Learn It

In addition to the main webinars (27-hours worth of material), you will have three 3-hour small group practice sessions led by experienced CT mentors, so you can really embody and put into practice what you learn. We’ve realized that the number one way to become a skilled practitioner of Core Transformation is through practice, combined with this kind of peer support—where we can learn not only from our own experience, but also from that of others.

Unique Tri-Level Training Model

In this coach certification training you will get the magical combination of three levels of experiential practice and three levels of feedback and support. With this model, extensive learning is inevitable as long as you apply yourself. 

Three Levels Of Experiential Practice

  • Practice with peers
  • Practice with the friends and/or family of your peers (we won’t make you work with your own friends and family)
  • Practice with community members through partnering charities

Three Levels Of Feedback and Support

  • Peer Review: Your expertise will grow as you give and receive supportive feedback with other participants, and learn from what each person does well. This way you’ll recognize your own improvement, while helping others improve. Once you’re ready, you’ll receive Mentor review…
  • Mentor Review: Your small-group mentor will review your skills and give supportive feedback, to ensure you are ready for Trainer review…
  • Trainer Review: Tamara or Mark will review your skills to ensure you are ready for real-world clients.
With three levels of practice and three levels of feedback, this program offers the opportunity to truly merit your certificate when you complete. We aren’t looking for perfection, but we are there to support your improvement at every step, so you’ll be prepared for a highly successful practice.
It’s not just about what we want to teach, it’s about what YOU want to learn

This course is designed with the flexibility to address real client challenges faced by participants. You can bring your toughest client examples to the training, and there will be exercise and/or group discussion time to find solutions. In this training we go beyond teaching specific solutions, to also include teaching our strategies for dealing with one-of-a-kind situations. What do we do when the usual solution doesn’t work? You’ll find out!

How the Online Training Will Work

The training will happen online through Zoom.

  • This will be an extended training, meeting for 3 hours, once a week, for 11 sessions.
  • We’ll be able to include everyone’s video feed, so that we can see and hear each other. When your trainer is talking, you’ll see and hear them. If they do a demonstration, you’ll be able to see them and the person they’re demonstrating with. When there’s discussion, you’ll be able to see whoever is sharing.
  • We’ll be able to do exercises in pairs, by using Zoom’s “breakout room” feature. Each pair will have their own “video room” to do the exercise, and you’ll be able to raise your hand and call your trainer or a coach into your room if you want coaching assistance. Once the exercise is done we’ll return to meeting as a group.

Recordings You Can Review

Each webinar will be recorded, and you’ll have the opportunity to view the recording as many times as you like in between webinars. The recordings will remain available (to training participants only), until 2 weeks after the last training session.

Those wanting to be certified as a Core Transformation coach will need to be present live for each webinar of this training. [Ask us in advance if you need a special exception.] You are welcome to join this course without attending each session live, if you don’t care about being certified.

Mark has a Personal Change Coaching private practice in Boulder CO, helping people achieve life-goals and resolving limitations using NLP, Core Transformation, Metaphors of Movement, Wholeness Work, and other methods for personal transformation and development. Though Mark uses many personal change methods, Core Transformation is the single method he has used the most over the last decade, both with himself, and with clients—because of it’s profound effectiveness and ease of application to a wide range of life issues. Mark works with individuals both in person and over Skype and Zoom. Visit for more details.

Mark’s past experience includes having worked in wilderness therapy as a counselor/trip-leader for the Monarch Center for Family Healing where he was in charge of facilitating groups of “troubled” youth on a daily basis both in individual therapy and group process.

Mark’s most recent book, Waltzing with Wolverines: Finding Connection and Cooperation with Troubled Teens, offers a fresh and effective approach useful with teens and “kids of all ages.” In Mark’s unique style, this book teaches through stories and examples, making it a fun read.

“I wanted to personally tell you how much I appreciated your instruction. I wouldn’t mind taking the workshop again next weekend! There is no way to describe the feeling of surprise and delight in reaching a core state rapidly through a short verbal process—descending down the rabbit hole into an inner world of peace or oneness or love. Mark Andreas’ instruction was perfect. He was easy to follow and his manner compassionate. I would recommend the Core Transformation workshop to anyone!”
