Training is online, self-paced, and led by experts. Approach is human-to-human and heart-to-heart. IWE empowers students to help their community live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
The purpose of the Certified Wellness Coach Training Program is to develop a cohort of trained community members of all ages, from teens to older adults, from professionals to lay people, who can influence and inspire those around them. They do this by modeling positive lifestyle choices, sharing accounts of their own wellness journey, and using evidence-based tools to help others reflect on their current state of health and wellness, and take action that works and fits for them.
