About The International Association for Health Coaches

The International Association for Health Coaches (IAHC) is dedicated to serving the expanding profession of health coaches. Health coaches work with clients to help them achieve overall wellness. This includes educating and guiding clients to make behavioral changes in nutrition, diet and physical activity and recognizing that a comprehensive individual health plan also includes mental, psychological and emotional wellness.

IAHC Certification

The IAHC Certified International Health Coach credential distinguishes certificants in the field of health coaching. To become certified, individuals must have graduated from either the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) health coach training program or a comparable program and also pass the Certified International Health Coach certification exam. By meeting these criteria, individuals have demonstrated competency in coaching skills and can use the IAHC Certified International Health Coach designation. The IAHC certification will be recognized with a digital badge issued through Acclaim.
