Providing recognition for schools that meet the Canadian Health Coach Alliance Curriculum Requirements
Registration of professional Health Coaches exists to protect the public from people who are not qualified to practice, just as licensure of physicians protects the public from people who are not qualified to practice medicine.
The continual upsurge in the popularity of Health Coaches and those seeking alternative and complementary care has emphasized the need for competent, educated professionals and rigorous standards for professional training.
Voluntary registration with a recognized professional association that independently promotes and maintains curriculum standards is a benchmark for distinguishing knowledgeable, well trained practitioners and the educational institutions training them.
Become an Approved School & Educational Partner
If you are an educational institution offering a Health Coach certification and/or continuing education courses to Canadian Students (inclusive to international schools offering online programs accessible to Canadian students), you are invited to submit your program and/or courses for approval.
1) Full program approval leading to registration status for your Health Coach graduates
2) Continuing education credit approval for your courses allowing graduates to fulfill their CEC credit requirement through your school.
It is the responsibility of the educational partner to notify the CHC Alliance of any program/course price changes
(ie special discounts, or price increases).
*Note* If you are already a registered and approved school with the CHC Alliance, you are not required to pay the CEC application fee.
Benefits of Becoming an Approved Partner:
- Added recognition and credibility for your graduates
- Higher success rates for your graduates
- More visibility for your school
- Ability to list CEC credit courses and have exclusive access to all of our current members in need of continuing education
- Being part of a community of Health Coaches and advocates supporting industry growth
Registration with Canadian Health Coach Alliance helps ensure that the general public can find properly trained, knowledgeable practitioners and sound guidance.
