Accreditation, Certification, Licensing & Registration Explained

  • Accreditation generally refers to the official authorization given by a governing body, to schools and programs, which qualifies their graduates to coach professionally.
  • Certification refers to the process by which individuals have completed a Health, Life, Nutrition and Personal Training Coach training program and met the requirements of that program.
  • Licensing & registration are granted by the State Board of Education. Although there are state-by-state laws, in general, an educational institution needs to be licensed or registered by a state in order to operate legally. (For example, the Health Coach Institute is currently registered by the state of Idaho as a proprietary school).
