Health Wellness Certification

MentorCoach – Health and Wellness Coach Training Certification is an Approved Health and Wellness Coach Training & Education Program by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). Graduates of this program are eligible to apply for the HWC Certifying Examination to become National Board-Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC).

Section 1: What is Health and Wellness Coaching?

A health and wellness coach works with individuals, groups and/or organizations who want to invest in a vision to become healthier, in large part by making lifestyle changes that optimize health, wellness and wellbeing. The National Consortium for the Credentialing of Health and Wellness Coaches (NCCHWC) expressed it this way: “Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby enhance well-being. In the course of their work health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.”

A growing demand for credentialed health and wellness coaches has resulted from many changes in society including but not limited to:

  • Individuals and families learning about family history and genetic results and recognizing the value of preventive lifestyle change;
  • A realization that expert advice from health care professionals about what to do and what not to do has generally failed to help people make behavioral lifestyle changes to prevent and manage illnesses;
  • Health care systems recognizing the value of health and wellness coaches to decrease hospital re-admissions;
  • Organizations and businesses realizing that investing in the health and well-being of their employees yields the best long-term return on investment that can be had.

Health and wellness coaches have a variety of tools at their disposal. Recent developments have provided even more tools to enhance the impact of their coaching.

  • Emerging advances in nutrigenomics (the study of the interaction of nutrition and genes)
  • Just-in-time evidence for health behavior change available from evolutions in wearable technology and
  • Other emerging precision health (genomic-informed) decisions.

As a result, health and wellness coaching is not only an exciting and important field but is rapidly emerging as a thriving one with many opportunities to make a difference and to specialize.

Section 2: Education and Training for Health and Wellness Coaches

Education Training

Health and Wellness coaching requires a unique set of knowledge and skills that are not taught in traditional coach training programs. That includes a thorough understanding of evidence-based processes of lifestyle change as well as lifestyle, health, wellness, and positive psychology.

Health and wellness coach training and education has evolved over the past several years and our MentorCoach program has evolved with it. MentorCoach’s health and wellness training faculty continue to stay up to date with national trends, changing requirements of the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC), and goes beyond that to have an active voice in the development of the field.

It is because of this unique set of knowledge and skills that health and wellness coaches around the world have felt that a credential from the International Coach Federation alone cannot identify who may be a competent health and wellness coach. So, several coaching leaders in this emerging field came together to create the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching  (NBHWC).

Section 3: Why National Certification Is Essential

National Certification

We need professional standards in health and wellness coaching for several reasons. One is the focus of the coaching; anyone involved with our health must be verifiably competent. We must protect the public from inadequately trained coaches who may share erroneous information. We must also assure that coaching in this often, sensitive area is respectful, compassionate, and empowering to the client. When individuals, groups, or organizations seek coaches to assist them in improving health and wellness, there should be some indicator of a coach’s competence. Health and wellness coaches should be well-prepared to work with clients on major issues of health, activity/exercise, stress management relationships, nutrition and diet, self-compassion/care, resilience, and assisting clients with self-management of chronic conditions.

Consequently, a group of health and wellness coaching leaders associated with the National Consortium for Credentialing of Health and Wellness Coaches conducted a ‘job-task analysis’ to clearly define health and wellness coaching and to set the standards for education and training in this important field.

  • The National Certification Examination (NCE) is based on the core competencies that are vital to effective coaching.
  • NBHWC requirements are grounded in current evidence-based recommendations by important public health groups such as the Center for Disease Control or National Institutes of Health.
  • Certification establishes a minimum standard for credentialing professional health and wellness coaches.
  • Certified health and wellness coaches stand apart from coaches who have not received adequate coach training or assessment of their coaching skills and knowledge.
  • By achieving such national certification, you will become part of a recognized network of professionals leading the industry in health and wellness coaching.

MentorCoach – Health and Wellness Coach Training Certification is an Approved Health and Wellness Coach Training & Education Program by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). Graduates of this program are eligible to apply for the HWC Certifying Examination to become National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC).

NBHWC now requires Practical Skills Assessment as a key component of achieving certification.  This has now been added to the MentorCoach Health and Wellness Certification.

The instructional time required to meet the practical skills development and evaluation standards do count towards the required instructional time.  Details of the Practical Skills Assessment are provided below:

1. Practical skills development

a. A student demonstrates three complete practice coaching sessions, each a minimum of 20 minutes in duration.

b. These practice coaching sessions are followed by faculty-led developmental feedback on practical coaching skills. The feedback must be provided verbally, in real-time. A minimum of one hour of total feedback time per student, over the three sessions, is required and counts as part of the required minimal synchronous hours.

c. Practice coaching sessions can be presented in a live or recorded format.

2. Practical skills evaluation

a. At least one of the above three, complete student practice coaching sessions. The coaching session can be presented in a live or recorded format, typically near the end of the program, and a passing grade is required for successful completion of the program. The program’s grading rubric must meet the guidelines as set forth in the NBHWC Practical Skills Guidelines, including listing observables for what a pass/fail grade would be. For more see the Practical Skills Guidelines.

After full program approval review is completed, individuals who have completed the MentorCoach Health and Wellness Certification will need to provide the following to earn the NBHWC National Certification:

  • A certificate of completion of an Approved Program.
    • One of the three paths with 60 hours of health and wellness coaching course-hours for MentorCoach Health and Wellness Certification. (described below).
    • Three practical skills development sessions with faculty feedback/mentoring.*
    • One Practical Skills Evaluation for competency in practical skills which must result in a pass/fail grade from an NBHWC certified faculty member.*  This can possibly be accomplished in one of the three practice sessions.
    • Documentation of at least 20 sessions of health/wellness coaching while completing the MentorCoach programs.
  • AFTER completion of MentorCoach requirements, applicants interested in qualifying to take the National Board Certification Exam, must:
    • Complete and submit evidence of that Completion of an NBHWC Approved Training Program (such as the MentorCoach program).
    • A written log of 50 health and wellness coaching sessions of at least 20 minutes in duration with at least 75% of each session devoted to coaching facilitation and not education. Sessions may not be with friends, family, or classmates. They can be either paid or pro-bono. The coaching log must include coded identity, date and time, session number (e.g., 1, 2, 3 etc.) and coaching. After completing the MentorCoach Health and Wellness credentialing process, download and complete the NBHWC Coaching Log.   Obtain guidance at:  Coaching Log – NBHWC
    • Documentation of Education or Work Experience Attestation Form which includes associate degree or higher – or documentation of related work experience at: Education Work Experience Documentation – NBHWC.
  • Those seeking NBHWC certification are responsible to acquire the healthy lifestyle knowledge summarized in the Health & Wellness Coach Certifying Examination Content Outline with Resources (2020).  This information is available on the NBHWC website at:  HWCCE_Content_Outline_with_Resources_2020.pdf (nbme.org) This content is completely covered in the MentorCoach Health and Wellness certification classes.

**The Three Mentoring Session and Practical Skills Examination are new requirements for approval to take the NBC-HWC examination.  We at MentorCoach will work with all previous students/graduates to meet these requirements.

Section 5: Our Four Extraordinary Health and Wellness Master Classes

We offer four extraordinary Health and Wellness Coaching Master Classes (see below), totaling 52 hours of training. All four must be successfully completed to become a certified Health and Wellness coach through MentorCoach. The Four Health and Wellness Master Classes are shown below; please see them listed on our Master Classes page for time and date of next offering. For full class descriptions and teacher bios, click on the links there. Click anywhere in the list below to go to the Master Classes page for more information.

A basic description of each required course is given below, but you can learn more by looking up the actual course description. Just click on the course title in the chart above or on the Master Classes page.

The classes described below have no prerequisite, so you can begin with any of them and can even take two simultaneously. You can begin either in Spring or Fall with any of these classes. And you can theoretically complete all four in a single year.

Living and Coaching the Good Life: It is All About You (12 hours) This class teaches you to learn and live the principles of wellness as you create and use your own personalized wellness plans. By extension, the lessons taught apply to your coaching clients. You will explore and deepen your understanding of your needs, values, and goals through use of exercises in awareness, visioning and goal setting. Together we will embrace the psychology of possibility as we delve into the necessity of fun, connectedness, meaning, and contribution. This class explores the integrative holistic models of wellness coaching, definitions and wellness principles designed for lasting lifestyle change. You will learn about the far-reaching value of mindfulness and self-compassion for enhancing motivation, coping, and emotional wellbeing; promoting positive health behaviors; and maintaining healthy habits. The course examines cutting edge research from top neuroscientists, physicians, and psychologists such as James Prochaska, Ellen Langer, Kristin Neff, Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Andrew Weil.

Mastering Wellness Coaching Interventions (14 hours) This class is designed to put the Health and Wellness coach’s skill set into action by helping you coach your clients towards their goals of improved lifestyle. In this wide-ranging course, we will cover sleeping difficulties, poor diet, overweight/obesity, inactivity, increased stress, energy depletion, and tobacco use, along with strategies for making progress in each area. We will also discuss issues unique to different developmental stages including teens, pre-post pregnancy, menopause, and aging. Topics to be explored include effective goal setting, will-power, self-esteem, self-efficacy and more. We will also examine evidence-based coaching models for change that are particularly valuable for clients seeking to make and manage sustainable lifestyle changes. You will leave with your own personal toolbox of evidence-based coaching models and interventions to use with clients who seek coaching for health and wellness challenges. Building on science related to health and wellness coaching, you will learn how to assist clients in exploring the scientific coaching interventions with appropriate focus on ICF Competencies related to the Direct Communication in order to maintain the use of coaching strategies and avoid becoming an ‘educator’ versus a health and wellness coach.

Mastering Wellness Coaching: Healthy Lifestyles (14 hours) Health and wellness coaching is a tremendously important area and healthy lifestyles are central to it. Just consider the massive number of people who die prematurely each year from preventable causes or those whose capacities later in life are diminished due to poor eating, lack of exercise, inadequate stress management, and other lifestyle-related issues. “Positive health,” an area that has grown out of positive psychology was ignored for years but is now part of mainstream thinking in the field. New research now establishes that there is a clear connection between happiness and a healthy body. While this area seems simple and straightforward (just a matter of “do this” and “avoid that”), that perception is based on an illusion. The statistics on change and personal experience reveal it is incredibly difficult to alter lifestyle behavior. In this class we will look at everything we know about what a healthy lifestyle looks like, what it requires, and how to help people have a fighting chance to bring it about. This class can also help you understand how to move towards living a healthier, younger, and more zestful life yourself, making you a wellness role-model for your clients as you “walk your talk.” Two major focus in this class is initial review of the ICF competencies included in the Practical Skills Exam with relationship to the ICF Competencies and Markers that are used for evaluation of coaching.

Living and Coaching the Good Life: You and Your Clients (12 hours) Many people working toward greater health and wellness, including many coaching clients, start off motivated but fall off the wellness wagon after a time. Stress is often cited as a factor in this. What is needed is to develop an inner trust in ourselves so that we can become more aware, listen to the body, and react to stress in a more positive way. Without addressing both the mind and the physiology of the body, it is hard to get lifestyle and behavioral changes to stick. In this class, we consider the science of mindfulness, self-compassion, habits, exercise, and sleep, as well as how to go deeper with clients using complementary mind/body strategies. Learning and practicing mind/body techniques can help our clients become more confident, optimistic, and resilient. This class will help you develop a toolbox of cutting-edge approaches to help clients become more aware and empowered, make healthier choices, and sustain positive health behaviors.
