ASHEBORO (Aug. 2, 2019)
Randolph Community College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division is offering a “Health Coach” course, starting Wednesday, Aug. 21.
The 126-hour hybrid course (#69148) is designed to provide individuals the basic knowledge, tools, and resources to help clients optimize their health and well-being. The purpose of Health Coaching is to create dynamic partnerships that move people toward satisfying and healthy lifestyles. Health Coaching facilitates behavior change in a structured, supportive partnership between the participant and coach. The coach invites insights and clarity through inquiry and personal discovery. A coach focuses on the mind, body, and spirit to help clients make the changes that support a healthier lifestyle.
The class meets from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Aug. 21, 2019, through May 13, 2020, in room 223 of the Continuing Education and Industrial Center in the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $180. There are three required books: “How To Be A Health Coach” by Meg Jordan, “Motivational Interviewing” by William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick, and “Coaching Psychology Manual” by Margaret Moore, Ericka Jackson, and Bob Tschannen-Moran.
The program is currently seeking approval to become an Approved Training Program through the NBHWC (National Board of Health and Wellness Coaching). To view the requirements to become a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, click here.
