Are there other costs/programs I need to become certified?
There are no other costs to becoming certified with ECC. Our program qualifies you as a CEWC (Certified Expert Wellness Coach) and you will receive a certificate of eligibility to apply for the National Exam.
What sets you apart from other programs?
While we don't know what everyone offers, we can tell you that we pride ourselves on keeping our cohorts small. You'll roleplay coaching in a small supportive group and this small group will quickly become your friends and biggest supporters.
When you join ECC, you really become part of our family. We are here with you every step of the way and will work 1:1 with you to ensure you're completing the program. To us, you are not just another number.
Lastly, our curriculum is comprehensive and easy to digest. Our modules are laid out with short videos, text, recommended additional readings, and short quizzes to help you prepare for the National Exam.
What is your Exam pass rate?
Since our cohorts are so small, the National Board does not provide data to programs that have less than 5 applicants sitting for the exam. However, since we are so close-knit, we typically get celebration texts and emails when our graduates pass the exam. To date, we know of only one person that did not pass the exam.
Why is your program 6 months when others are shorter?
Coaching is a beautiful skill, yet it is just that, a skill. It takes time and practice to master a skill. It's why our coaches graduate with the confidence to really help their clients. It's impossible to gain all the required skills in a weekend.
Why is your coaching program more expensive?
We believe in quality over quantity. Our goal is not to enroll in mass numbers at low rates. Our goal is to provide a high-quality curriculum, a supportive environment, one-on-one support, numerous opportunities for in-depth feedback on your coaching, continuous opportunities for improvement and growth, and more importantly, success for you!
Our program is designed to be small and supportive. Learning a new skill is an investment and it truly does take time, practice, and feedback to master the skills of coaching. Our graduates leave with confidence and the skills necessary to pass the intensive National Exam.
We often have students who have graduated from other programs, who did not pass the National Exam and are seeking a scholarship to lessen the cost of enrolling in yet another program. That doesn't happen with our graduates. Quality over quantity.
What can I do with my certification?
You can work in corporate wellness, you can work for an online coaching company, and you can even start your own coaching practice.
What happens if I don't finish?
You have a full year to complete the program. After one year there is a re-enrollment fee to join another cohort.
