Your pathway to taking the National Board of Medical Examiners' Exam starts here in our program, approved as an official training program by the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaching (one of a select few programs with this approval from throughout the U.S.)


Our 75-hour well-being training program combines 35-hours of self-paced online content (that you can start right now) with 40 hours of live training experience. 

Your 40 hours of live training includes two parts (held concurrently):

Part 1: Weekly Coach Training Sunday Evening Seminars (24 hours)

These two-hour seminars are held live via Zoom, over the course of 12 weeks (Sunday evenings 7 - 9 pm). Each week you will review self-paced content, discuss case studies with your fellow coaching students, practice different coaching techniques, and receive feedback from your mentor coach, Dr. Carmack. 

Part 2: Coach Training Electives 

Live Elective Option A: A live two-day training weekend (16 hours)

In this interactive training weekend, you will become certified as an Office Wellness Champion and Active Classroom Champion -- so that you can learn how to bring coaching into office and school settings. You'll get direct feedback on your ability to coach using  Dr. Carmack's talk- and movement based techniques, and connect in-person with your fellow coach trainees. (This training can also be taken separately; please inquire.)

Live Elective Option B:  An 8-week online well-being training program (16 hours)

In this weekly live group coaching program, you'll receive personal coaching on YOUR well-being, so that you can experience the client's perspective of our coaching model. This elective is great for trainees who wish to complete their coach training completely online and/or for trainees who wish to receive their own well-being coaching so that they can better serve their clients. Please note that these group coaching sessions meet concurrently to your live coach training seminars (Wednesday evenings from 7 - 9 pm), which means that if you choose this training option, you will have 8 weeks in which you will meet twice weekly for the program (once for your Sunday Seminar and once for your client Wednesday group coaching session).

** You can choose the elective that works best for your training preferences (i.e. coaching practice for the weekend option or client experience for the weekly coaching program). You can also choose the elective which works best for your logistic preferences (in-person weekends are held in Virginia or Maryland or online delivery).

Upon successful completion of all program requirements you will receive a certificate of completion from CWBE, suitable for framing.

This program is approved as a training program by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching.

You will also earn eligibility to take the National Board Exam in Health and Wellness Coaching. Additional coaching practicum is also required; please see the NBHWC website or email us at letsgetcentered (a) if you have questions about these requirements).

This program is also approved as a YACEP program by the Yoga Alliance - enabling current Yoga Teachers to receive continuing education credits.

If you have additional CEC's (continuing education credits) to pursue beyond those listed here, please email our team to explore your options.

We limit enrollment to ensure student success. This enables our instructor to give you the time and attention you deserve while you are committing to your training journey. All classes are currently taught by Dr. Suzie Carmack, PhD, who has 28 years of experience teaching in university settings as well as 16 years of experience in teacher and coach training.
