Quickly expand your earning potential

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for health coaches and health educators is projected to grow 21 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. You can get your ACE Health Coach Certification in as quickly as 90 days, and become a desired resource in one of the fastest-growing professions in the U.S.

Be at the forefront of the healthcare shift

Healthcare is shifting from treating illness to focusing on prevention, which is creating a strong demand for certified health coaches to support physicians and hospitals. And only ACE provides a health coach certification accredited by the NCCA, an independent organization that accredits numerous certifications within the healthcare industry, including nurse practitioners, registered dietitians and more.
