We are so proud to announce that The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy has been approved by The National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC), for the education and training of health coaches.
The International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching (ICHWC), now known as the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) work collaboratively to implement standards leading to certification as a health & wellness coach. Being 1 of 13 approved private sector organizations Health and Wellness Coach Training & Education Programs with NBHWC, graduates may choose to pursue board certification through NBHWC’s Health & Wellness Coach Certifying Exam.
The new credential, “National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach,” or NBC-HWC, is quickly becoming the indicator for coaches with the highest level of training available.
Naturally, many of our graduates are choosing to sit for their NBC-HWC to take their certification to the next level.
