INTERESTED IN BECOMING A HEALTH COACH?
Becoming a Health Coach can give you an amazing platform to launch a wellness business or further your thirst for personal growth.
It allows you to confidently assist clients in reaching and permanently maintaining a healthier lifestyle through activity, healthy eating habits and mental fortitude. Health Coaching stems from a holistic approach to wellbeing and is something I have always stood strong on…Our health begins with us.
Personally, becoming a Nutrition and Health Coach brings together over 20 years of experience and knowledge as a professional sportsperson into a business that helps motivate and fulfil other health outcomes. Becoming a qualified Nutrition and Health Coach allows me to build from my Cert.IV Personal Fitness Training certification and what I share here on Ironmum Karla. It really is the perfect solution to a question that was already half answered.
IT CAN BE TRICKY CHOOSING THE RIGHT COURSE PROVIDER
I looked into each option and decided that Well College Global Nutrition & Health Coaching was the right choice for me. I love that not only is Well College the online curriculum evidence-based it’s relevant to Australian practices. The other major drawcards of the course are the price and accreditation recognition. With some offshore programs tallying over $12,000, Well College Global (formerly Cadence Health) offers their Nutrition and Health Coaching course for approx. $2,700 in total. Plus it’s all pay-by-the-unit, no upfront or monthly instalments. This gave me comfort in knowing that if by chance I didn’t pursue Health Coaching as a business then it wasn’t an expensive personal investment.
It’s also peace of mind to know that if I am going to invest my time and money into something, I will be easily covered for insurances and accreditation. The Well College Global course is internationally recognised and offers insurance and various levels of professional registration options across 27 countries.
The 18-month course is, of course, flexible with what life throws at us and Well College divides the program into two parts. First, you’ll do four core units that start you out with Psychology and Behaviour Change, Human Nutrition, Physical & Mental Health and Coaching Techniques. You’ll finish off with choosing three electives from an awesome selection of units from Kitchen Medicine, business coaching, Meal and Menu Planning, to Nutrition Psychology
This gives you the freedom to customise your studies in a way that is relevant to your flavour and potential offerings.
In a nutshell
WCG is still one of the few providers that ensure all graduates leave with mental health training
WCG remain one of the few if not the only college that offers non-diet coaching to support the push away from the dieting paradigm
WCG just launched a Women’s Health Coaching program, pretty much one of a kind. Keep your eye out for the Associate Certified Women’s Health Coaching option coming soon (has F2F coach training and will be HCANZA approved).
WCG has taken flexibility to a whole new level, you can now start with the Nutrition, Health & Wellness Coach Certification, and depending on the electives you take you can gain two quals, and gain Women’s Health Coaching as well
As you know they don’t do exams, testing or essays, instead of everything is untimed, totally flexible and controlled by the student
Lastly, they are still one of the few colleges that offers a proper selection of electives so coaches can honour their wellness passions.
