Health Coach Training and Certification

Brandman University has partnered with the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute to offer Health Coach Training and Certification in a unique online format. The Dr. Sears Wellness Institute’s goal is to set students up for success by providing the best online learning experience. Students will find that the interactive classroom environment is designed to meet their needs in a variety of ways. Students are able to view the coursework 24/7, interact virtually with classmates, and receive feedback and support from a qualified instructor.

These science-based courses provide students just entering the health and wellness field the nutrition and lifestyle education they need to become a Health Coach. The courses are also designed as a tool for health professionals who have extensive health and wellness knowledge, but lack a fully developed curriculum to teach their clients a simple program that is easy to understand and implement.
