What it means to be a Leadbetter Certified Instructor

David’s career in coaching has spanned over 40 years, during which time he has built a large academy network across the world. In order to ensure the standards of coaching are maintained at his Academies he started working on some training materials that his coaches should work through.

Over the years, this has evolved in to our renowned Certification program and pulls together information from David himself, his team, along with partners and industry experts to not only educate you as an instructor but also challenge you in your thinking, communication, planning and presentation skills. Along with you always expanding your coaching knowledge these are key areas to becoming a successful instructor.
