We have designed the Financial Coach Practitioner Certificate training with both you and your clients in mind.

Based on our innovative coaching framework the live online training course, combined with our online training platform, will help you develop the skills and confidence to provide financial coaching to a wide range of clients. Our approach will also help you explore ways to address your clients’ relationship with money.

The course integrates the teaching of core communication and coaching skills with extensive feedback on your own delivery. We believe this approach allows you to develop your own coaching style, while ensuring you have the expertise to offer a quality service.

The course is focused on experiential learning, so be prepared for lots of participation. Small group sizes are guaranteed, which means you’ll receive ongoing and focused feedback to enable you to build and consolidate your skills throughout the training.


On successful completion of the course you’ll have the opportunity to join the Wise Monkey network of coaches. You’ll be part of a fast growing team of dedicated and like-minded professionals, supporting each other to help clients understand and take better control of their financial future.

What if I don't come from a Financial Services background?

Alongside our Financial Coach Practitioner Certificate Training, we also offer a series of three 90-minute online interactive seminars, designed for delegates who do not have any formal training in personal finance. The aim is to prepare trainees for the types of topics that may come up in coaching sessions.

You're more than welcome to attend our Personal Finance Seminars as a stand-alone to the training so you can prepare for attending the training at a later date or to broaden your own personal finance knowledge.
