Students participate in an experiential practicum that allows them to apply and develop their coaching skills in a one-on-one setting with clients. The focus of the practicum is further development and practice of the tasks, knowledge and skills identified in the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) coaching competencies and Scope of Practice, the core competencies identified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), along with the theories, principles, tools and techniques learned and practiced in previous courses. Throughout the practicum, students receive mentoring, coaching and feedback from instructors and peers as they develop the skills of mind and heart necessary to become effective coaches. Students learn more about career options in the field of health and wellness coaching and have opportunities to talk with experienced coaches to discuss how to establish and operate a successful coaching business.
