Why does this matter?

With more agencies looking to regulate and license coaching, it’s critical that schools are approved by programs such as the NBHWC so their students and graduates can practice legally and stand out as credible coaches.

This approval reflects and affirms that our school provides a high-level and forward-thinking education for our students. It’s important to make sure that the program you choose is fully accredited like our Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach (CTNC) program to ensure the curriculum has met a high standard in terms of the education and support you will receive.

We are honored to be one of only 11 private sector organizations to achieve this program approval.

What It Means to be Fully Approved by the NBHWC

Graduates from the CTNC program are eligible to sit for the qualification exam administered by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and become a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC).

Full approval for the Institute of Transformational Nutrition means our program and curriculum meet the new rigorous standards set forth by the NBHWC, which requires numerous competencies to be met. 

This approval attests that our students are being taught the necessary curriculum essential to the practice of health and wellness coaching. Eligibility to sit for the board exam allows for this application of knowledge to be assessed at a rigorous level and successfully passing the exam will highlight an ITN graduate’s skill, competency, and expertise. This sets graduates apart from other coaches in the field helping them to be higher paid and more successful.

Why Become a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach?

The coaching industry is rapidly evolving – for the better. With so many new coaching programs, all with varying offerings, it is becoming more difficult to differentiate credible schools from those who simply aren’t. The standard of coaching curriculum taught also differed, which from a public health perspective, was concerning. NBHWC created a much-needed standardization of competencies, requiring students to master key skills and knowledge that are essential to effective coaching. These competencies are based on a rigorous job task analysis and are validated by an extensive survey of over 1000 practicing coaches.

The certification offered by NBHWC is recognized at a national level which supports the improved visibility and recognition of coaches as essential healthcare practitioners and valued members of the healthcare system everywhere. The national certification will also allow ITN’s modern-day coaches to stand apart from others who have not received adequate coach training, health training, or assessment of their coaching skills and knowledge.

Why the Institute of Transformational Nutrition?

Coaching is changing the way the world approaches health and wellness. But it’s not just about food. The curriculum at ITN redefines nutrition by focusing on three areas – physical nutrition, mental nutrition, and spiritual nutrition – in addition to business and coaching. ITN is also the only coaching school delivering a passion-based learning curriculum that allows you to learn what you love, resulting in two certifications credentials in one program.

Our simple, step-by-step course also teaches you how to confidently coach your clients and build a successful business using proven systems that work with zero guesswork.

We always knew our program was one of the best, confident our curriculum and content were second to none, but it’s incredible to have it be made official by such an esteemed organization.

The NBHWC joins a host of other respected coaching organizations who have offered our school and program accreditation and recognition. As the field continues to evolve, we’ll be there too, continuing to set new standards and move the industry forward into the modern-day world. The coaching industry is evolving, and our priority is always to make sure our graduates are out in front, leading the way.
