Health Coach Evaluative Experiential Learning Module


The Evaluative Experiential Learning Module is the last step in your learning pathway towards the Health Coach Professional Certificate. This individual summative assessment consists of three 20-minute role-play simulations (approximately 2-hours) with the simulated person and the instructor using three real-world case scenarios. The simulations will be conducted virtually via Zoom and you will receive Zoom instructions before your session.

The instructor will observe all three sessions and assess you based on a scoring grid adapted from the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching. You will receive personalized feedback at the end of the session.

Please review the simulated person methodology and assessment grid used in this evaluative experiential module to help you prepare for the session.


The Evaluative Experiential Learning Module will be held on the last Friday of each month. The HLLN team will email you to confirm the date and time of your assessment (2-hour time slot), we will try to accommodate based on first come first serve availability. If all time slots are full, you will be scheduled in for the following session and receive an email confirmation.
