More Details

This course is all about how to become a health coach. You will learn the foundation of coaching and get the tools needed to become an effective health coach.  Not sure if you have the skills, worried about how to work with various people, concerned about all the conflicting information on health and how you’ll pick what to share with people? Don’t worry, we’ll help you will all of these questions.

The course is laid out with the education, skills, and character traits you will need to become a health coach.  You’ll learn how to communicate more effectively and understand different personalities.  As you apply what you learn, you will be more proficient in active listening and using appropriate questions guiding your clients to make positive lifestyle choices and goals that will improve their quality of life and mental wellbeing.  We offer a certificate of completion for those who score 80% or more on the final quiz.

Many of the lessons have a mental or spiritual focus. Why? Science has proven the mind is more powerful than any other single influence over our bodies.  The textbook for this course is called the Ministry of Healing, which is from a creation perspective, and it uses references to the Bible. I believe creation has scientific merit just as much as evolution, since neither can be reproduced in a lab, they are both are theories, based on inference and observation of the past as viewed from our current period.  This course is not intended to be specific to any one religion, and anyone open to spiritual matters, regardless of denomination, will benefit, as 90% of the material is adaptable to any faith in a loving creator God or higher power.  The other 10% is specific to Christianity, take or leave it as you will.  So, keep in mind before you take this course, I will talk a lot about God.

We have a few free sample videos in each section, so you can scroll through the table of contents to watch those to see if this program is right for you. Any lesson without the closed lock can be watched without purchasing the course.  I suggest you start with the introduction and summary, both are free with no obligation so watch them right now! 

Note for SDA health ministry leaders: This course not only gives you tools to work with others, there is no other model that can be as effective in terms of soul winning, as one combined with health outreach.
