The top priority today for individuals, teams, and organizations is training and development, coaching, and specialized support for health and well-being, mental health, and wellness initiatives. With a plethora of organizations providing health and wellness coaches and training and development programs, the qualifications for health and wellness coaches and consultants have become even more essential regarding standards, ethics, and relevant training. The National Board Certification credential (NBC-HWC), in collaboration with the National Board of Medical Examiners, represents this profession’s highest standard and is based on extensive research and specialized training, education, and assessment of the coaches who have met NBHWC’s specific criteria and standards.
In 2016, the organization began working with the National Board of Medical Examiners (nbme.org) to establish a board certification examination, which has since certified more than 3,000 health and wellness coaches in the fields of healthcare, employee wellness, government, and private practice. The National Board-Certified Health & Wellness Coaching community is composed of trained, educated coaches, who are passionate about working with executives, clients, teams, organizations and patients for better health and well-being outcomes. The esteemed NBC-HWC credential represents training, education, and assessment standards, allowing for coaches and the profession to advance in all aspects of health care and wellness.
