How does the Empowerment Coach Certification work?
The Empowerment Coach Certification (ECC) is the #1 online Empowerment Coach Certification for women on Google worldwide. It's designed to take students through the curriculum over a 4 month span. However, you have up to 12 months to complete it, if you'd prefer to work along at your own pace.
Led by best-selling author, and the founder of Empowerment Coaching, Crystal Andrus Morissette, our certification features two weekly live classes, one with Crystal, and one with our esteemed Professor of Coaching, Izabela Viskupova, L.L.M., M.A.
Apart from the live classes, students also have access to over 40 hours of additional lecture content, 30 hours of real coaching calls for them to listen to, weekly assignments, a beautiful online community of support, and so much more.
One of the many things that sets this certification apart from the rest is the 30 hours of practice coaching calls arranged by our team that you must complete before graduating. These calls are listened to, marked, and you're even given the opportunity to chat with your professor's about your progress and receive constructive feedback.
Whether you want to become the best coach you can be, or just the most empowered, confident, and happiest version of yourself in your own life, we've got you.
"What a truly powerful transformational course! I went from working in a basement as a bookkeeper, facing the back wall, hiding behind my computer to finally acknowledging myself and how much I have to offer the world. I gained the courage to believe in myself which has lead to me becoming an author, speaker, coach and my latest discovery an artist."
Nicole La Roche
"Becoming a certified Empowerment Coach with The S.W.A.T. Institute was about taking a bold step forward to create a career that I love, always wanted, and I'm excited about. To be able to step into the calling that I was destined to have, to become an agent of change for others--all the while creating a credible, profitable coaching business that gives me the freedom to work the hours I want to have the lifestyle I've always desired--is why I signed up."
"Getting certified and launching my coaching business with The S.W.A.T. Institute’s structured support allowed me to build my confidence and develop my voice in a way that was really fun. It also provided the safe space to go deep and to really look at some of my old wounds, traumas, and stories that I needed to let go of to step into the next version of myself."

What's in the Curriculum?
Module One: Building the Foundations of Empowerment Coaching
The learning objective of the first module is to introduce the students to Empowerment Coaching and the basic tools of this specific coaching method.
In this module, students will be invited to master the basic framework of Empowerment Coaching which includes:
- The Map of Empowerment
- The Concept of Coaching from the Body, Not from the Head
- Working With Parts
This module takes the students in detail through the most crucial emotional levels on the Map of Empowerment such as Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Grief, Fear, Desire, Anger, Pride, Courage, and Neutrality and offers specific coaching strategies and interventions for each of these levels. There are 24 lessons in Module One.
Module One offers a vast opportunity for the students to listen to practical examples of “real life” coaching sessions, which is an invaluable component of the program. Also included are video lectures on each emotional level, two live weekly calls where students can chat with their professors, and a private Facebook Group for fellow “student empowerment coaches” to share, connect, and support each other.
Module Two: Boosting Your Coaching Toolkit
The objective of the second module is to build on the foundations laid out in Module One so that the students can further hone and expand their coaching skills.
This module also incorporates some of the more general topics in coaching such as how to structure the coaching sessions or how to build rapport with a client.
The aim of Module Two is also to prepare the students for some unexpected or more challenging circumstances in coaching such as coaching a client with a different cultural background or a client that has just lost someone they loved and is in "the eye of the hurricane," so to speak. There are nine lessons in Module Two.
By the end of this module, students should have already participated in a 12-Week Emotional Edge Course taught by Crystal Andrus Morissette in order to integrate their learnings, personally. This course is mandatory in graduating.
Module Three: Putting Your Theory into Practice - Your 30 Mentorship Coaching Calls
The objective of the last module is to have the students do their own coaching and practice all the skills and techniques they have learned throughout the course while coaching their own clients. The clients will be provided by the S.W.A.T. Institute through the Mentorship Program that enables women from any part of the world to get free coaching. This is a beautiful opportunity for our students to hone their coaching skills.
Section 1: What you need to do to start your Practice Coaching
The objective of this section is to cover the logistics side of the coaching practice so that the coaches in training have everything set up and ready before they start their practice coaching.
Section 2: The Critique session
As soon as students have completed approximately half of their practice sessions (10-15 practice sessions), they select three of their calls and submit them to their Professor of Coaching who will review them and schedule a critique session with them. The objective of the critique session is to give them feedback on how they have been doing thus far.
Section 3: Final Exam Assignment
The objective of the Final Exam is to put everything together for the students – both the practical as well as the theoretical side of the training.
In order to do that, they are required to:
- Submit another set of their coaching calls
- Answer a set of questions about Empowerment Coaching
30 Recorded Coaching Calls
Over 30 “real” coaching sessions with real clients for students to listen to the empowerment process in application & not just theory.

30 Practice Coaching Hours
The S.W.A.T. Institute provides these 30 practice mentorship coaching calls which help students mentor strangers rather than crossing the boundary into coaching friends and family members.
Real professors who listen to students “practice coaching calls,” and offer a one-on-one critique call for each student to laser in on areas of strengths and weaknesses.
Grading + Feedback
The student’s final assignment is graded on the quality of their submitted coaching calls by Professor Izabela who is also a Master Empowerment Coach and who has a Master’s degree in psychology and law.
A beautiful lifelong community of sisterhood and support, through our private Facebook Group where students can connect with each other for questions and encouragement.
A lifetime of Mentorship Empowerment Coaching to get one-on-one support at no additional cost. In fact, part of your requirement to graduate is to also experience coaching yourself. We believe being mentored by at least two different coaches (six calls in total) will help you understand the coaching process from the perspective of the client.
A beautiful diploma with the official corporate seal, printed, and mailed to you upon completion, ready for framing. Upon graduation, you can also apply to the American Association of Drugless Practitioners for an additional designation.

How Much Time Do I Need?

Once you move through the curriculum and complete all the assignments, you will begin your 30 hours of practice coaching calls on real women from around the world, arranged by The S.W.A.T. Institute!
Just a few of the places Crystal and The S.W.A.T. Institute have been featured...
How Am I Supported?

During your two weekly live classes, you'll be able to "raise your hand," ask questions, and get to know your professors and classmates. Even though these classes are virtual, you'll feel like you're in a real classroom! These classes are also recorded if you can't make them live.
Our Private Forums
Be apart of a beautiful sisterhood of women through our online Facebook forums, where you can ask questions, and be supported through your studies and your life. Our community is truly one of the best aspects of The S.W.A.T. Institute, with many of our students turned lifelong friends.
