Course Design

This Certification Course is an instructor-led distance-learning course that provides an advanced level of training on the professional application of Integrative Health Coaching skills through a variety of course components. On most weeks of the course, students will attend interactive distance-learning sessions, alternating between instructor-led small group learning and individual sessions with a mentor instructor. Students will use a computer with a headset to access the WebEx online meeting center for each of these sessions. For the individual mentor sessions, students will bring an audio recording of a coaching session and receive personalized feedback from their mentor instructor. Required course components include:

  • 8 Group Sessions: Small group instructor-led distance-learning sessions with coaching practice and feedback from instructors and the fellow participants
  • 3 Mentor Sessions: Individual sessions for personalized feedback on audio recordings of professional coaching
  • 5 Web Based Trainings (WBTs): Online, self-paced modules which guide learners through the course content
  • 8 Demonstration Videos: Illustrations of the use of Integrative Health Coaching skills, process, and partnership
  • Documentation of 50 professional coaching sessions (each session must be at least 20 minutes in duration)
