At Evexia and wellnesscoaches.org, we have specific guidelines for CEU’s and for keeping your valuable credential current.

Recertification – All Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Coaching Programs 

Recertification Program Overview

Once you have become certified as a Coach by Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org, you will want to keep your certification valid by completing Continuing Education Units in the field of your certificate.  Upon successfully completing your certification program through Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org you can rest assured that you have the skills needed to be an effective coach.   After two years of enjoying the use of your new credential, you will be required to build upon what you have achieved in the two years after finishing your original course.  By maintaining your credential with Continuing Education Units (CEU’s), you are showing both your clients and the industry that you have the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to continue to advance not only your career, but the coaching professional as a whole.

 

Knowledge, skills and ability levels are increased when education is able to continue; Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Committee for Recertification (ERC) requires all Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org certified coaches to complete continuing education on a recurring basis so that your certification as a professional can be upheld.

 

Requirements Continuing Education – Getting your CEU’s

The Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Recertification Committee requires all certified Coaches within its domain to complete 20 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) over a period of two years, beginning on the date that your certificate was issued.  This is in keeping with the standards within our industry that are generally required (e.g., each 0.1 CEU is typically worth one hour of study time or one contact hour of live training formats or courses).  All approved coursework is listed with predetermined CEU values at the end of this document.

Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Recertification Committee (ERC) has determined that a two-year time frame for you to accomplish this requirement of renewal is also consistent with industry standards.   This is because scientific research and the application of that research changes over time.  Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Coaches must stay abreast of scientific research and its applications as it changes in our field of applied coaching.  In order to continue to deliver both advanced and effective coaching that is progressive in nature and useful at an individual level, Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Coaches are encouraged to learn and obtain further education on a consistent and ongoing basis every year by attending a live training or completing a home study course at least once every 6-9 months.  We also encourage students to exceed the required 2.0 (or 20 hours) CEUs for recertification if there is a need to do so. 

Recertification Fees and Payment Options

To complete your recertification, there are a few steps to be aware of; first, a 2-year recertification as a Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Certified Coach is $95.00 USD.  Fees, as well as recertification applications with all required or necessary CEU credits completed must be received by Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Recertification Committee (ERC) on or before certification expiration date (as indicated on your diploma).   In is important to meet the milestones for recertification to avoid late fees or penalties and to also ensure that there are no delays in processing your recertification of certification.  Ideally, renewal materials should be sent in for review within 30 days of certification expiration.  Applications that are properly submitted (completed CEU paperwork and full payment of fees) are accepted by our office as early as 90 days prior to certification expiration.

An application to recertify is required. This application follows at the end of this document.

Again, recertification applications are considered late if not received (accurately completed) on or before certification expiration date indicated on your certificate.  Late applicants may experience a delay in award of recertification depending upon factors stated as required by Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org in this document.

Under certain circumstances or conditions, late applications for Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Coach recertification may be accepted by Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Recertification Committee (ERC) up to 90 days after expiration (see schedule for time-based penalties).  Late applications will require additional fees, based on the fee schedule table below.  After 90 days, following certification expiration, Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org certifications are deemed null and void. Formerly certified Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Coaches who fail to comply with recertification policies and procedures may be required to retake the specific course exams for which they are certified and in these cases, the applicant will be allowed to purchase a “test only” option to fulfill this recertification obligation in order to be certified and recognized as ‘in good standing’ by Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org and The Evexia/wellnesscoaches.org Recertification Committee (ERC), for the next two years (all exam and recertification fees apply).

CEU Categories – College or Other Coach Courses
