Two Wellcoaches Certification Options
We offer two distinct certifications based on required prerequisites:

1. The "Certified Health and Wellness Coach" for credentialed health professionals who wish to use coaching skills in working with patients or clients to improve their health and wellbeing. As a Health and Wellness Coach, you will be an expert facilitator of mindset and behavior change that generates sustainable healthy lifestyles, which prevent or treat disease, and foster well-being and thriving. If you do not meet the standard prerequisites for the "Health and Wellness Coach" certification, you may apply for a waiver.

2. The "Certified Personal Coach" for non-health professionals who wish to use coaching skills in areas such as leadership and executive coaching to improve performance and wellbeing. As a Personal Coach, you can apply the universal principles of behavior change to support clients in increasing productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals.

Fees and Refunds

The cost of Module 3 is $650, or $600 when purchased at the same time as Module 1 and 2. Refunds for Module 3 are not provided once you have been given access to the materials or started any of the Certification steps. You may request a refund for Module 3 prior to completing Module 2, less a 5% administrative fee. Refund requests must be received in writing by your assigned Coach Concierge.
