I would like to say that I've had an extremely positive experience learning and achieving my certification through the IAWP.

I was able to learn at my own pace, when I needed help I got it. My learning partner was from Brazil, so it was very fun to learn about wellness coaching in another country.

A wealth of information is available to those who are looking to enter into this rewarding field through the IAWP. I highly recommend getting your certification through them.

I could write a novel here on my amazing experience with the IAWP Wellness Certification Program. It was a game changer for me in that I finally found a place where I could channel my passion to help others and be able to make a difference.

The support that I received was invaluable.

I truly felt that the program was tailored for me, I really loved every module. The tools that have been learned and given to me will be used in all faucets of my life. Thank you IAWP!

I am almost a graduate student of the IAWP wellness coach certification program. The IAWP program is terrific and I love the community! I found this training as comprehensive and enjoyable. To my great surprise, this online program is so well organized so much support and love.

The wellness coach training focuses not only on wellness, coaching, and business development but also on your personal growth and how to reach your own potentials and how to help other people with life challenges. There are classroom material and other multiple live events, calls and interactive training; unlimited live coaching labs with Master Coaches, Wellness 360 training call, Core Training call, and Empower Hour all right for your training. You get ongoing support through facebook group also after you graduate have access to the community as well!

This program is for all ages and the structure is flexible because you can finish at your own pace. Before I enrolled in this training I was stuck and hopeless for one and a half year to find the right coaching program for myself and finally found it.

I would highly recommend this program to everyone who wants to learn how to become well trained as a wellness coach. I am a proud member of the IAWP community!

Amazing training and support! Coming from a corporate background with zero prior experience within a holistic field, just a new sense of purpose, the will to learn, and a passion to help women like me, I was concerned about how an online programme might work for me.

I needn’t have worried; a comprehensive classroom, too many live support calls to mention, as well as a fantastic, supportive online community.

Now that I’ve graduated and am a fully certified Wellness Coach, I still have lifetime access to all of this and ongoing support whenever I need it as my journey continues.

If you are looking for an accredited certification program for health and wellness coaching, you should strongly consider the International Association of Wellness Professional’s (IAWP) course. This is a comprehensive program that includes, not only training in wellness, holistic health, nutrition and natural healing, but also in client coaching techniques and business practices. The course provides done-for-you material and a website that can be used in your own business if you choose.

Not only has this program prepared me for starting my own coaching practice, but more importantly, greatly assisted in helping me improve my own personal health and wellness in all areas of my life including nutrition, disease management, relationships, stress management, awareness, spirituality, happiness and an overall greater appreciation for life. I believe the program is a worthwhile endeavor even if you are not necessarily interested in starting a coaching practice but focused on improving your own mind, body and spirit. However, the health and wellness training, combined with the client coaching techniques and business practices, will have you on your way to establishing a successful business prior to your completion of the program.

The program strongly encourages your own experimentation with health and wellness strategies learned in the course. This greatly enhances your ability to relate to potential clients and assist them in achieving their health and wellness goals.

I would highly recommend the IAWP for anyone looking for a wellness coaching course. First off, I am a busy wife and mom with a full-time job, so the work at your own pace was awesome!

I was skeptical about the amount of interaction and support I would get in an online course, but the support and interaction was amazing! IAWP covers 3 pillars: Wellness modules, Coaching modules, and Business modules. I expected to learn about wellness and how to coach, but the business modules were an extra bonus.

Without all of this, I would have been lost trying to set up my own business, but this made it so easy! The course has not only helped me personally, but I am so excited to start helping clients as well, and the support is always there if you need it.

I completed my health coach certification through the IAWP in 2013. I found the program to be comprehensive in not only health coach training but in assisting in the start-up of my new business. They provide the information & tools to get you taking the first steps forward with your new certification.

IAWP is not only an on-line program but a supportive community that continues their support long after program completion. They have an on-line presence ready to assist when you need extra support. Highly recommend the program.

A message from the founder

If you’ve read this far, you’re likely considering whether becoming a Holistic Wellness Coach is right for you. I want to share something with you.  Over the years of connecting with 1000’s of aspiring Wellness Coaches, I’ve noticed that every person has a journey that has brought them to this moment – the moment in which they decided it was time to share their passion for wellness with others and to take the step toward doing something they love with their life. That moment when you knew in your heart that this is what you’re meant to do. I love hearing the stories that brought people to their deciding moment.

What was your deciding moment? I’m guessing there has likely been something in your life, too, that has brought you to this point. Something that ignited your passion for wellness and the desire to help others. Maybe you underwent your own healing or helped a family member. Perhaps you saw the impact that making simple lifestyle changes can have on your health and you know you need to share that message with others.

Whatever your story, it’s that very journey that brought you to this point today and it will drive your passion from this day forward. Tap into that passion, because it will support you to make the right decision.  If you’re picturing an amazing future and ready to take this next step, I want to personally welcome you to the IAWP. Our community is waiting for you with open arms and we’re so excited to support you!

Love, Health and Success,

Frequently Asked Questions

Holistic Wellness Coaches are professionals who take an integrative approach to help people learn to make healthy lifestyle changes. They take into account more than just nutrition,  fitness or simple habit changes, but all aspects of a person’s health and life in true holistic fashion. IAWP Holistic Wellness Coaches are highly trained coaches, providing support and accountability for their clients so they can make lasting lifestyle changes.

Today there are many people calling themselves “Health Coaches”. They have varying educations and backgrounds, some with extensive training, others with no training at all. Health Coaching is a general term that does not tell people what area of health you help with or your specific approach. Many Health Coaches focus solely on nutrition, exercise and habit changes.

“Wellness Coach” is a more specific term. It denotes that more than just general health is being considered in the approach. Wellness signfies well-being and lifestyle aspects beyond food and exercise.

When evaluating various health and wellness coaching programs, it is important to understand the difference between becoming a generalist and a specialist. Whether a training program calls their graduates a “health coach” or a “wellness coach,” they often have a particular angle that they work from.

Holistic Wellness Coaching is a specialty term in which professionals will take a holistic approach to wellness, considering all aspects of a person’s well-being as well as the support provided involves holistic remedies, therapies, and a more natural approach to wellness.

While generalist coaches can be useful, you’re guaranteed greater success when you choose a specialist track like Holistic Wellness. You probably know that in the field of medicine a doctor who is a generalist is paid less than a specialist simply because of their training and industry demands. This is also true for a health and wellness coach.

The International Association of Wellness Professionals is recognized world wide and we have students from numerous countries all over the world.

Our Holistic Wellness Coach Certification Program is CCE accredited by the International Coaching Federation, the international gold standard in training accreditation. 

The IAWP is an accredited school by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and approved by the Canadian Health Coach Alliance.  Our Wellness Coach Certification program is also approved by the UK Health Coaches Association.

With approval and accreditation from leading organizations across the globe, you can feel confident that our  curriculum has met a high standard in terms of the education and support you will receive.

The IAWP is committed to supporting our students while in the program and for the life of their career. Our curriculum is built on support and systems which set the foundation for launching a thriving coaching practice. Our certification is unique because it’s built on an experiential learning method where coaches-in-training receive a full immersion in their learning with unlimited support. For example…

Our students have unlimited opportunity to receive personal coaching from our IAWP Master Coaches during our weekly Live Coaching Labs. You can learn from multiple mentors and experience different coaching styles during these group coaching labs. We offer a wide variety of days and times for our students to gain personal support in these highly transformational training sessions.

Our students also have unlimited access to our live training calls and workshops each month, where you will receive personal support from a  Master Coach, a guest teacher or our Founder, Suzanne Monroe.

These events are live, interactive workshops held over video conference and are a great way to connect with our faculty and fellow students, with a laser focus on subject matters related to wellness, coaching, business and mindset.

Our mission at the IAWP is to provide the most supportive online education experience in the industry and we take our mission seriously. The way we deliver our training and support is what makes our program unique from any other training in the online education field today.  

Our unique training method is called The Immersive Transformation Training Method™ (ITTM), where you will personally experience and practice everything you learn in your program. This process allows you to master your own wellness, become a highly effective coach, and launch a profitable practice…all during your training.  

Unlike most online education, where you “read, watch and learn”, here at the IAWP you will “read, watch, learn and DO” through our hands-on learning experience. ITTM includes interactive training, hands-on application, application modules, real-world experience, small group coaching labs and ongoing support.  This full immersion means you always have a place to get direct and personalized support and you not only end up with superior knowledge of coaching, but more importantly, you have the ability to coach.

We also give our students all the tools and systems they’ll need to be confident as new Wellness Coaches, without having to reinvent the wheel or start everything from scratch. You’ll get to build on a foundation that’s guaranteed to help you create success in your new business or career path.

With a large international student population, our students form lasting friendships and peer support relationships with students from around the globe and in their local communities. We don’t stop offering support after graduation, though.

One of the most impactful parts of an education with the IAWP is that we offer lifetime support for all of our students. Our community is always there to provide advice, feedback, and inspiration, no matter where you are in your Holistic Wellness Coach career journey. Don’t just take our word for it, check out what our students are saying!

The short answer is Yes! In fact, we are so confident you will get your first client by the time you graduate, that we guarantee your success. If you follow the steps in our program and fail to attract your first client by graduation, we will refund your tuition and you can keep your certification. 

At the IAWP, our program is based on our Immersive Transformation Training Method™. This method ensures you are applying your knowledge during every stage of your training and this includes taking the right steps to attract your ideal clients. Through our business training, you will follow our Coach Launch system, which is designed to take you step by step through a process that will allow you to attract and sign up your first 10 clients, or your next 10 clients, again and again. 

When you enroll in our Holistic Wellness Coach Certification program, you will receive Lifetime Access to our training, plus continued education and support for the life of your career. This is very unique in the online education industry and we are unaware of any other organization that provides this level of access and ongoing support. 

This also means that you will be part of a community that is committed to supporting one another. Unlike other training programs where access to other students might be limited to your current class, at the IAWP you will have the opportunity to connect with former students and grads who are always excited to share their experiences and pay it forward. It’s truly a unique community like no other. 

While you do not need continuing education credits to maintain your IAWP Holistic Wellness Coach Certification, our training is recognized and accredited by several organizations, like ICF where our program can earn you CCEs. 

Our primary focus is on giving you the systems and support you need to build a thriving practice, helping others. 

Our business training can be applied to building a practice in your local community or creating an online coaching business.  Some students prefer to work locally, others go straight to online. The choice is your and will largely depend on your preference. 

Through our Coach Launch Fast Track system,  you will learn how to set up your business and determine which career track best fits for you. You will learn online marketing basics, social media, video conferencing and other virtual business tools. You’ll also personally experience virtual coaching and online workshops through your training.

Because launching an online practice requires some additional technical skills, we encourage most of our students to apply our systems in their local community first and then expand to online as they build proof of concept with their niche, their signature coaching program and our client attraction strategies.
