With International Health Coach University’s dedication to advancing wellness and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s role in shifting health care, the natural affiliation between the two has matured into a highly collaborative and beneficial partnership.
International Association for Health Coaches (IAHC) is an organization dedicated to supporting the professional development and advancement of Health Coaches globally. IAHC works to position Health Coaches as an integral part of an emerging preventative health care model.
International Health Coach University has assessed IAHC’s certification process and found its assessment of prior Health Coach Training to be synonymous with that of IHCU’s curriculum. As a result, IHCU requires certification from IAHC at admission for students desiring advanced standing. By special request, late admissions can request to complete the exam no later than the beginning of their second trimester. For more information about IAHC, please see their website https://iahcnow.org/
The International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC) certification exam may also be used for students desiring advanced standing. Given the complexity of the ICHWC exam process successful completion must occur prior to admission. No provision exists for delayed testing.
