Frequently Asked Questions
Primal Health Coach Institute delivers a best-in-class coaching education accredited by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). We don’t just teach coaching. We coach clients ourselves, so we’re well-versed in what it takes to become a coach who truly makes a difference. Because the program is all online, you get to study from wherever you choose and go at your own pace. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend virtual seminars and live events to strengthen your coaching skills with hands-on learning and a supportive network of peers.
Once you start the online education process, course material is released at a rate of one chapter per week. There are 4 chapters with 4 practicums, so you could technically get your expert coaching certification in as little as one month. However, this is a self-paced program, so you can proceed through the course work at a slower rate if you’d like. Enrollment gives you lifetime access to all the course material.
As long as you complete the lessons and the coaching assignments you will be more than prepared to pass the exams and earn your certification. The 4 chapter exams consist of multiple choice and true/false questions that have been carefully scrutinized by an elite team of beta-testers to ensure fairness and relevance to the written and video content course material.
A score of 75 percent correct or better represents a passing grade. If you score below 75 percent, you can return to the material for review, and then attempt the exam again and as many times as you need to pass it. If you find yourself getting stuck on a certain chapter or frustrated with the learning experience in any way, don’t stress! We are here to support and eagerly await the opportunity to help.
The Coaching Expert Certification is an in-depth course on the art and science of coaching. It’s also the second pillar of our flagship coaching certification programs: the Primal Health Coach Certification and the Primal Fitness Coach Certification.

What Our Grads Have to Say
The Master Coach Certification Course surrounded me with like minded individuals who want to help each other grow and succeed in helping others. Because of the course I now have more confidence in myself and my ability to be a great coach. And Course Instructor Erin Power is amazing! I love her energy. She's no nonsense in a compassionate, fun way. She put her heart, passion, and love into this course and it came shining through.
Certified Master Coach
The course has taught me so much. Most importantly, it has taught me to listen well, to be present and engaged, and ask open, thoughtful questions. It has taught me that the client knows their body the best, and that my role is to collaborate, support and, with their permission, educate and inform. The class was composed of a truly impressive array of experienced and thoughtful individuals, and instructor Erin Power exceeded all my expectations!
Certified Master Coach
Engaging, organized, thoughtful, incredibly informative—course instructor Erin Power, and this class, changed the way I see the world. I'm much more confident in coaching people, and now understand the value in having the client be in the driver's seat to spur motivation and lasting change. The fellow students were an incredible group of people and I am very honored to be part of this cohort. I feel we will collaborate and refer clients to each other in years to come.
