Become a Certified Inclusive Health Coach

Welcome to the School of Inclusion Health Coaching, where we are committed to promoting justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in health coaching and healthcare!  We call these JEDI skills!  We are thrilled that you are considering embarking on this journey to become an Inclusive Health Coach.
 
Our school is founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to high-quality health coaching and healthcare that takes into account their unique needs and backgrounds. As a student in our program, you will learn to become a health coach that can work effectively and connect meaningfully with diverse individuals and communities to promote wellbeing and mindset change, and behavior change.  In addition, we believe that as a coach if you understand how social determinants of health  and health inequities happen through the marginalization of specific groups, you can coach in way that is authentic and empathetic at an entirely new level.
 
We recognize that health coaching and healthcare can be an intimidating field, but we want to assure you that our school is a safe and welcoming space where you can be your authentic self. We value diversity in all its forms, and we believe that our differences make us stronger and more capable of creating positive change in the world.
 
As you begin your journey with us, we encourage you to take advantage of all the resources our school has to offer, from our experienced faculty to our dedicated staff to our vibrant community of learners. We are here to support you every step of the way, and we are excited to see all the amazing things you will accomplish as a health coach who is committed to implementing their JEDI skills!

Why Choose Us?

          There are a lot of health coaching schools to choose from.              Here is why we think you should choose us.

NBHWC Accredited

Complete our NBHWC accredited program and you are eligible to sit for the NBC-HWC exam.  

JEDI Intensives

Having the ability to coach diverse individuals through an inclusion lens is at the core of what we do.  Having the confidence to coach anyone and authentically connect with those that are different from you is priceless.

Budget Friendly

One of the greatest challenges in health coaching is the cost of training programs.  We got payment plans, scholarships, and include in the program a study group ($237 value) with a 95% pass rate AND 150 practice tests questions ($97 value) and your first CEC course Navigating Healthcare and Reimbursement ($97 value)(application pending) after passing the exam for free!

Extensive Coaching Practice with Feedback

A lot of programs will highlight their short durations.  Unfortunately, that doesn't jive with learning science.  Learners need  a lot of practice space to develop their skills over time.  Here is where we focus!

Healthcare Focused

We believe the future of health coaching is in healthcare.  And its where we can be most effective in our health equity work.  No healthcare experience?  We got you covered so you can get a job in healthcare with confidence!

We Love Innovation

No more boring Zoom sessions!  We use InSpace, an application specifically designed for learning and meaningful interaction and our homework sessions.  Plus our coaching school is an app!  Your busy.  We get it. Study on the go!
