What our graduates say
"NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT HCA."
"I spent 18 years in marketing and then did a life coaching course but it didn’t feel quite right. On my journey I came across the HCA website and just knew this was the answer to what I was looking for - I spoke to Alison on my initial call with HCA and I knew instinctively this was for me. At the HCA 3 day live training I met Liane and we started a business together called the Health Coach Consultancy, and I've never looked back".
"BEST, MOST PRODUCTIVE, THOUGHT PROVOKING, AND EXCEPTIONAL COURSE EVER!"
I have found since attending the live training, I understand the modules and videos, and the course is so understandable. I believe this has something to do with the fact that there was personal interaction with every single coach. I loved meeting like-minded people who share my passion for health and helping others!
"THIS JOURNEY! I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START!"
"Biggest thing for me is personal growth and the personal health journey for me. I am 10 steps up from the person I was last year!
The satisfaction you get from working with people being able to be that facilitator for change has been so satisfying for me and seeing the results has been life changing.
A beautiful amazing journey. Thank you."
Entry Requirements, Costs & Enrolment
Whilst there are no specific entry requirements, it's important you feel ready to study and are realistic about the commitment and the level of study involved.
This course often attracts those who are planning a new career and often have transferable skills which we recognise, whether you are educated at a higher education level or not. To join the HCA Health Coach training course, an essential requirement is that you are passionate and committed to making a difference to others; we therefore like to speak to everyone who is interested in training with us before we offer you a place.
There are 6 intakes a year giving you choice to start the course at a time to suit you. We would love to chat to you and get to know you and we invite you to arrange a one to one call with one of our team members; you will be speaking to a central team member or a graduate so you can get all your questions answered and discuss your interest in becoming a health coach. This is not an interview but is a pre-requisite before joining the course. Following the call, if the course is right for you, you will be sent your formal offer to join the next intake.
