Coaching Application If you are interested in becoming a Whole30 Certified Coach and building a business to offer one-on-one, group, in-person, or virtual support to Whole30 clients, this form is for you! Before you complete it, please carefully review (at minimum) the FAQ section at the bottom of the Become A Whole30 Certified Coach page. We’d like to highlight a few things here: Because this is a professional designation that allows you to officially support Whole30 clients, potentially charge fees, and build a business, there is a certification fee of $1000. It is paid after your application is reviewed, but before you take the Track 1 exam. There are 4 Tracks, or steps, to becoming a Whole30 Certified Coach. Track 1 is a 70-question multiple choice exam. A study guide is readily available. The other 3 tracks include essay questions, a special project, and an interview. Each of the 4 tracks must be completed within a separate 1-week window (a week for each track). You may repeat the track as many times as needed within that window, and you will receive notification about your results from the Whole30 HQ Coaching team at the end of the window. If you pass, the next track will open. We have recently revised the Track 1 exam! This was traditionally the hardest step for new Coaches. The test has been shortened to only 70 questions that more accurately represent the full spectrum of Whole30 Coaching. Becoming a Whole30 Certified Coach has many benefits, including educational resources and business development, opportunities for partnership with Whole30 Approved Brands, and a direct connection to Whole30 HQ. If you’re interested in cultivating a formal relationship with Whole30 but do not plan to actively Coach clients, please consider our Envoy program: http://envoy.whole30.com. We are accepting applications for both Envoys and Coaches now!
