    Default Course of action to become an SSC

    Hi Rip,
    I'm from Italy, 25 years old, about halfway through NLP.

    Here are my numbers after almost 8 weeks, if you're interested:
    Squat 132kg (290lbs)
    Press 56,5kg (125lbs)
    Bench 86kg (189lbs)
    Deadlift 138,5kg (305lbs)
    Power Clean 55kg (121lbs)

    I'm building a home gym cause I'm tired of relying on the government for my training, and I thought this could be a great opportunity to try and coach people. So I'm offering people in my university to come and train in my garage for free (1 guy already told me he will do it), this way I can get to know people who lift, train with them and eventually find someone who's interested in me coaching them. My next step would be to come to a seminar as soon as possible, unfortunately that's probably gonna be the one in May 2021, so I can have hands on experience on what coaching the method looks like plus getting coached myself.
    Then, once I have a handful of people to coach, I can start your online coaching development course and get better at coaching and find more people to coach. Then I would just prepare myself for the coaching exam and attend a second seminar when I feel ready.

    Do you think this sounds like a good plan for someone in my situation? Am I too young? Should I focus more on my training first? Should I hire an SSC or go with trial and error?
    I don't have a rush to get the certification but my goal would be to get it within the next 3/4 years (as much as the world is going to shit, I still make the mistake of planning my life ahead and try to accomplish something)

    Thank you for your time.

    Sounds like a good plan. Maybe someone should write an article about this.

    That sounds like it would be really helpful, especially for people outside the US or younger people. Thank you again

    Right. I'll just read the articles.
    You should delete the post if it's no use.

    It's useful, in that it reminds people that this is a very large website into which we have put a lot of work, and that you should search it before asking questions that have already been answered multiple times.

    Francesco, you may also want to check out Joannes Marvin's five part series on becoming an SSC, especially considering he's based in Singapore. Here's the link to part 1;

    Francesco stated his age as 25, which brings to my mind the question of what are the ages of the youngest, and oldest persons to obtain SSC credentials?
