The first step in the Wellness Coaching Specialist (WCS) path is to register for and complete the Foundational course.
For those interested in being certified as a Wellness Coaching Specialist (WCS), ILCT has an 80-hour course of study that provides the training and focus necessary to join this exciting, fast-growing field, working with individuals to optimize all areas of their lives.
Requirements to achieve certification:
The time required to get certified depends on your availability and the courses you are interested in taking. Many Wellness courses can be taken while you are enrolled in the Foundational course, meaning you could complete your program in approximately 6 - 9 months.
The cost for this program depends on the courses you select. The average cost of completing 80 hours of training is $4,550. Interest-free payment plans are available to help spread the costs over the length of your program.
