There are Three Important Things You Want to do:
1. Take your required courses, workshops and training from an education organization accredited by the:
a) American Accreditation Commission,
b) Council on Higher Education,
c) Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or
d) endorsed by one or more of the following organizations:
Nutrition Certification Board
Nurse Nutritionist Certification Board
Health Certification Board
Natural Therapies Certification Board
2. Practice your coaching tools and techniques all the time with everybody you meet and/or or speak with. The more you use these skills with the public, the more you attract clients and endorsements. You need both.
3. Optional: Apply for your certification as soon as you start your internship but have completed all of your other requirements. You will be certified as a technician and need to be supervised until you complete your internship. But you can immediately start making money and growing your business.
Follow the Blueprint
The easiest and quickest way to become certified is to multi-task by taking several courespondence courses and workshops simultaneously. Do the basics first, then the intermediate and finally the advanced courses and workshops.
