Become an NBC-HWC

With the Scholarship Program
from YourCoach Health

We're committed to ensuring that cost is never a barrier to anyone who wants to become a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach

We’re excited to unveil

The Rita & Gene Presman Memorial Scholarship Program. Founded in honor of our CEO, Marina’s, late mother and father who were endlessly committed to education and fought tirelessly to provide their family with opportunities, this program will sponsor 15 individuals yearly (up to 5 for each sitting) for the cost of sitting for the NBHWC certification exam and provide exam prep prior
