How to Coach a Plant-Based Diet is packed with everything we know about coaching around how to eat a plant-forward diet—that works for your clients’ bodies, health, and lives. It takes into account a wide spectrum of plant-based eaters including everyone from vegans to flexitarians.
There is a 10-question quiz at the end of each of the three units in order to ensure you feel confident with the material. However, the goal with this course isn’t to get you to cram hard so that you can pass a test. Instead, our goal is to teach you the complexities of how behavior and change works and why, so you can get better results for your clients and level up your coaching skills.
All that being said: if you score 75% of better on the three quizzes, we’ll send you an official Certificate of Completion (which you can submit for CEC’s at participating organizations), along with a digital badge, to demonstrate your commitment to continuing your coaching education and practice.
This program is entirely self-guided and is broken down into three units. The entire material could be covered in detail in about 9-12 total hours.
