Wellness Coach Certification and Training

The Catalyst Coaching Institute is THE premier international provider of comprehensive Wellness Coach Certification Training, education and operational tools and resources for wellness coaches around the globe. In our Wellness Coaching Certification, we offer the official CWC designation as a Certified Wellness Coach as well as continuing education that provides you with everything you need to enhance both your coaching skills and your credibility in the profession. The Catalyst Coaching Institute offers several different tracks from which you can choose – the “Fast Track Certification” or the “Distance Learning Option.”  You select the one that fits you, your learning style and your schedule the best.  Either option will lead to earning your CWC designation as a Certified Wellness Coach. Both options provide up to 30 approved CEU contact hours through the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT), the National Athletic Trainer’s Association’s Board of Certification (NATA-BOC) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) with additional accreditations on the way (please contact us for details). For those of you interested in more advanced training, check out our Master Certified Wellness Coach program. The MCWC program is approved by the National Consortium for Credentialing Health and Wellness Coaches (NCCHWC) as an approved transition program as a requirement needed to take the upcoming National Certification Examination (beginning in 2017).

Wellness Coach Training

Fast Track Wellness Coach Certification

The Fast Track CWC coaching certification option provides the training to develop and enhance your skills as a wellness coach through a combination of face-to-face training, practice and group interaction during our concentrated two-day on-site training in Colorado.  These two concentrated days of training are then supplemented by a handful of virtual courses, additional practice sessions with a Mentor Coach and more, which you can complete on your own schedule from your home or office. This option generally appeals more to the individual who values interacting and developing relationships with other coaches and instructors face-to-face.  It also generally allows the individual to move through the full certification process more quickly. It’s also a great excuse to visit beautiful Colorado and get to know our team in person. Our mission is to guide and support wellness coaches who are fully committed to maximizing their skills and outcomes as a professional. Our CWC certification is the ONLY coaching certification approved by three of the most notable review boards in the country: The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy, the National Athletic Trainer’s Association’s Board of Certification and the American College of Sports Medicine. In developing the program, we’ve purposefully chosen not to place “ease” over “effectiveness” in the Wellness Coach Certification process. As you review various coach certification alternatives, you’ll note that the majority are available only as an on-line.  As much as we understand the importance of convenience (which is why we also offer a distance learning alternative),  we believe wellness coach training is maximized through at least some face to face time. With that said, we still provide approximately 50% of the Fast Track Wellness Training available on-line for your convenience and also offer the “Distance Learning” alternative (see below) for those who prefer that route. The total contact hours to earn your CWC Certification through the Fast Track involves 16 hours of live training and then an additional 16 – 18 hours provided remotely through live webinars, mentor coach interactions, as well as the oral and written exam that finalizes your CWC certification. We’re not looking for “everyone” to pursue their Wellness Certification and Training through the Catalyst Coaching Institute – only those who are fully committed to excellence as a wellness coach. If this describes you, we’d be pleased to have you join us. The Fast Track CWC program is also the core training required on the pathway to earning your Master Certified Wellness Coach designation, which is an approved transition program through the NCCHWC if you are interested in taking the upcoming national wellness certification examination.

Distance Learning Wellness Coach Certification

If you’re looking for the best available option to earn your CWC (Certified Wellness Coach) certification but are unable to join us in Colorado for the on-site portion of the certification training, we now offer a Distance Learning alternative. This option allows you to complete the entire CWC certification from the comfort of your own home or office, without the additional cost of travel. This alternative incorporates a mix of on-line coursework, webinars, forums, reading and practice sessions with Mentor Coaches to help you become the most effective wellness coach possible. Upon completion, you will earn the same CWC certification as a Certified Wellness Coach and be ready to practice in a wide range of settings. As an added bonus, coaches selecting the “Distance Learning” option can attend the on-site training at a later date for no additional charge. For more details on how you can earn your CWC certification from one of the most respected organizations in the industry, please contact us anytime at Thank you for considering us as your partner in this journey! *ACSM approved providership of this program does not imply endorsement of the sponsoring organization’s products/services.
