Beginning with the July 2018 teleclasses*, we will be launching exciting changes to our Core Coach Training Program and Certification processes to continue to lead the field and support coaches in gaining mastery through both excellent education and guided practice. These changes will impact Jul, Sept, Nov teleclases and Aug & Oct residential sessions.
*These changes do NOT impact the July Residential session in Syracuse, NY
Module 1: Core Coach Training
To begin, our Core Coach Training Curriculum will not only include the 18-week teleclasses or 4-day residential course, but also a new 10-hour habits ecourse. Completion of these two courses will be required for course completion and to receive a Certificate of Attendance. This module is a pre-requisite for Module 2.
Cost: $1345 18-week/$1695 residential
Module 2: Advanced Practice
To further develop your skills, and to prepare for Wellcoaches Certification, our next Module offers several live classes and ecourses to deepen your understanding of the concepts and skills presented in the Core course. Topics such as Organize Your Emotions, Organize Your Mind, Wellness Visions, and Generative Moments will include additional demonstrations and practice opportunities. This module is a pre-requisite for Module 3.
Module 3: Skills Application and Assessment
To demonstrate your learning, and to pursue Wellcoaches Certification, our third Module is focused on the application of learning. In addition to the components that have been included in Certification, such as the written and oral exam, we are excited to now include three, 1-hour individual mentoring sessions to prepare students for the oral exam! This module is required to become a Certified Wellcoach. See new Certification Handbook, effective for students enrolled in July and later (with the exception of July residential in Syracuse).
Module 4: Fundamentals of Lifestyle Medicine
Stay Tuned: Registration will open in Spring 2018
As a coach, it is important to have a holistic and broad understanding of healthy living. This 20-hour e-course, built in collaboration with ACLM, provides education on key healthy lifestyle topics such as brain health and basic biometrics, from leading experts. This module is not required for Wellcoaches Certification but is required if you wish to be eligible to take the National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach exam through the ICHWC.
Cost: $300 (a 50% discount will be offered to students pursuing the Wellcoaches Certification, beginning Summer 2018).
