>> Hi there. I'm here today to give you an overview of the IIN curriculum so you know exactly what to expect and to get excited about this year. Let's jump right in and discuss the curriculum structure. Your core curriculum is made up of 40 modules. A new module opens almost every Monday at 9am Eastern Time. There are some breaks throughout the year for holidays and weeks where no module is released, for time to apply what you're learning. So please refer to your Course Schedule to see exactly when each module opens. You can find your Course Schedule by going to the Documents page of the Learning Center. The curriculum is designed so you can work through each module at your own pace. That said, to get the most out of the course, you should plan to set aside 5 to 10 hours a week to complete your audio and video lectures, handouts, and skill building activities. The more time and effort you put in, the more fulfilling this experience will be and the more you will get from the program. To set yourself up for success in the Health Coach Training Program, block out your study time on your calendar every week on the same days at the same times. For example, Tuesdays from 1pm to 3pm or Saturday afternoons from 2pm to 5pm. One of the biggest perks of this course is that it's flexible and designed for you to take at your own pace so you can play around with your schedule. But you're far more likely to do the work if you have set calendar times, you usually dedicate to it. And you know that, for example, most Mondays at 9am Eastern Time, you'll have a new content to dive into so you can pace yourself around that. Next, let's talk about modules. Each module is made up of audio and video lectures taught primarily by Joshua, IIN's founder and director, and other leading experts of nutrition and health, personal growth, and coaching. Each module also includes skill building activities, lecture notes, and select visiting teacher slideshow presentations, all are designed to support you in your learning. Each module kicks off with learning objectives so you know exactly what you should be mastering over the following week or two. These objectives are designed to help you zero in on the most important concepts covered in each module. Make sure you review them thoroughly at the start of each module and once more at the end to recap with yourself or your study buddy. To help you integrate and reinforce the key themes from each module, we've included skill building activities like discussion questions, assignments, and quizzes. Go through the module contents first, the lectures and the notes, then you'll dive into the skill building activities to test yourself and make sure you understand the core concepts presented. To get the most out of this program, we recommend staying focused on the learning objectives and completing the skill building activities for each module. These will anchor you and they will bring you the most important key concepts rather than getting lost in the details or going off on a learning tangent. Now let's go over how the course has been designed. Joshua and the Education Team have structured the curriculum in a way that will optimize your learning experience. Understanding our intention behind HCTP will be super helpful and perhaps inspiring. Your course is broken down into four categories, Foundation and Guidance, Nutrition and Health, Coaching Skills, and Primary Food. Foundation and Guidance lectures appear throughout the course. The content is meant to be instructional and motivational. It includes orientation material to give you a lay of the land and to go over the basics, the IIN mission, alumni inspiration, and course checkpoints. One of the key components of Foundation and Guidance is the Golden Path, your roadmap to success. The Golden Path will be explained further in module one. The next category is Nutrition and Health. Here you will learn the basics of being healthy, and you will explore a wide range of diet and health theories taught by leaders in the field of health and wellness. It is important to remember that you do not need to know absolutely everything about nutrition and health. The focus here is IIN core concepts which include things like bio-individuality, crowding out, and deconstructing cravings, all concepts you'll master in your own life and then share with others if you choose. Don't worry too much about them right now. As Joshua says, "It is about focusing on what you already know, not what you don't know." If you choose to build a business, clients will hire you for support and transformation, not to learn about the biochemical breakdown of B vitamins. Joshua's core concepts and unique theories apply to everyone and are far more powerful than giving clients a bunch of scientific information. They can Google that stuff. This is another reason why focusing on the learning objectives is so important to your success. They'll help you remain focused on the big picture. The third category of content is Primary Food. Primary Food lectures focus on personal development and Joshua's idea that we are truly fed by our lives, not just by what is on our plate. Joshua considers relationships, your career, exercise, and spirituality to be primary food. And this overrides secondary food which is the food you eat. As Joshua says, "You can eat all the broccoli and kale in the world, but if you are in a toxic relationship or a job you hate, you will not feel your best." The fourth category of the curriculum is Coaching Skills. This is woven throughout the course to help you apply your learning in the other three categories to real-life situations and eventually your work with clients. About one quarter of the way through the program, you'll be introduced to coaching skills with lectures from top leaders in the field. You will learn everything from how to facilitate the initial Health History session, the conversation you'll have with potential clients, to how to sign them and how to guide them through a 6-Month Program. A Health History is the initial session you'll conduct with a client to find out where they are, where they want to be, and if and how you can guide them in bridging that gap. You will learn all about Health Histories in the curriculum. We will teach you how to use key tools to engage clients during the Health History and to get them engaged and committed to their transformation. These tools include active listening, asking open-ended or high-mileage questions, and giving them a little taste of what it would be like to work with you, just to give you a brief overview. You will learn all these concepts in depth in the program. Okay, great work so far. Let's do a quick recap. The curriculum is broken down into 40 modules that open on Mondays at 9am Eastern Time. The learning objectives will help you stay focused, and the skill building activities will help you integrate and implement what you learn in each module. Your program has four content categories, Foundation and Guidance, Nutrition and Health, Primary Food, and Coaching Skills. The categories are woven together throughout the curriculum to help you apply your learning to real life situations and with your clients if you choose to go into the business. We've designed the Health Coach Training Program with a huge amount of thought, with love and intention. We hope that you feel that, we hope you learn a lot, and we also hope that you have some fun. Before I go, I want to leave you with a few bonus tips to make the most out of your learning experience this year. First, if you find yourself always hungry for more information, check out our libraries. We have the Dietary Theory Library where you'll find overviews of over 100 dietary theories. The intention here is not for you to master every diet, it is for you to gain a basic knowledge of them so you can address diets in your own life and with your clients. IIN respects that each person is unique and no one diet works for everyone. You will find many conflicting theories, since that's the nature of science and the diet industry. We want you to gain exposure to many different theories so you can experiment for yourself to find out what works for you and form your own opinion on diets. Many of your clients will want to experiment with diets or they'll want to ask you about popular diets. So it is important to have a basic knowledge of the pros and the cons. Always make sure you and your clients consult a medical doctor before making dietary changes. Our second library is the Reference Library where you can find lectures on exciting subjects from digestive disorders to marketing your own practice. The content in the Reference Library complements the core curriculum and can be accessed as soon as module one opens. Keep in mind that you will not be tested on any of the information in the Dietary Theory Library or the Reference Library, they are totally optional. In fact, you'll have access to these libraries after you graduate. So if you're short on time, do not worry about making time to go through this content. Your primary focus must be the core curriculum. You will be tested on the core curriculum, and mastering the core curriculum is key to graduating. Second, I am so excited to let you know about a special bonus we've included in the curriculum. We know that students enroll in this course for all different reasons and we want the IIN curriculum to support you wherever you are in life. If you're ready to start a business or elevate your existing business, Joshua has decided to include bonus business material in the second half of the course. Our bonus business lectures are clearly highlighted at the end of each module they're included in. Use them to help refine your business goals and be a successful coach. Keep in mind that you will not be tested on this content as it's a bonus feature in your curriculum. So we've covered the structure of the curriculum and modules and the four curriculum categories have also been covered, Foundation and Guidance, Nutrition and Health, Primary Food, and Coaching Skills. You know a new module opens almost every Monday at 9am Eastern Time and to check the Course Schedule for integration weeks, holidays, and important deadlines. Finally, you learned about the supplemental features of the curriculum which we designed to support your independent learning goals. The IIN curriculum is carefully designed to serve your unique journey and to guide you to master tools to transform your own life and in turn transform others' lives. We've put so much passion and energy into the course, and we can't wait for you to dive in. For now, enjoy the orientation and fundamentals. It is going to be a life-changing year, and I wish you the best of luck as we begin together.
