Who Can Be a Spiritual Director?

Are there any rules or Canon laws that state who may become a spiritual director? I thought spiritual direction was only reserved for those with holy orders, but I am hearing of Catholic spiritual direction “courses” one may take to become a director. Can you clarify? Thanks,
