Who can take this course?

Anyone can participate in this training. However, to become a Certified ReCODE 2.0 Coach and listed in our database, you must have completed a National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) approved program or petition for an exception. The ReCODE 2.0 Training for Coaches assumes the student has a knowledge base consistent with foundational health coach training, including core coaching competencies. 

How can I find out more?

Apollo Health held a live Q&A Zoom session on January 7th to answer questions and provide updated information about the course, and you can watch that below. To be on the mailing list to receive more information on ReCODE 2.0 Training for Coaches, please email coaching@ahnphealth.com

What will be available to me as a Certified ReCODE 2.0 Coach?

As a Certified ReCODE 2.0 Coach, you will have the most comprehensive and up-to-date training available to prevent and reverse cognitive decline. Additionally, upon your certification, you will have the distinction of being listed in our Practitioner and Coach Locator Tool with a badge indicating your advanced training. You will also have full access to the abundant resources available on the Apollo member portal. This badge may also be used on your website and social media.

Can I become a certified health coach through this training? 

No. This course is not a coach training program. This advanced training program is for certified health coaches who desire to become certified by Apollo Health in ReCODE 2.0. If you are not a certified health coach and wish to take an NBHWC-approved Health and Wellness Coach certification course, click here for a list of approved training programs. Many Bredesen- trained/Apollo coaches have begun their training through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy. As the Bredesen Protocol® is a systems-based approach to cognitive decline, training in the functional medicine model provides a consistent foundational framework.

If you are not a certified coach but still wish to take the training, you will receive access to all course modules but may not represent yourself as an Apollo Health Certified Coach in any manner. The live monthly calls that accompany the training will only be available to certified coaches or those who have met the conditional criteria for certification. With that said, if you are currently enrolled in an NBHWC-approved training, you can take this course at the same time and participate in the live calls.

What is the advantage of taking RECODE 2.0 Training for Coaches if I have already taken the FMCA Reversing Cognitive Decline course? 

Apollo Health strongly encourages coaches to update their education in the Bredesen Protocol for the following reasons:

The Science of PreCODE and ReCODE has advanced significantly since the release of the RCD course. ReCODE 2.0 contains all of the updated science in one place, delivered by leaders in the field.

ReCODE 2.0 for Coaches contains significantly more material than the original RCD version, including all modules from the ReCODE 2.0 Training for Practitioners, broken down into required or bonus content. Required content quizzes will be designed to align within the coaching scope of practice. A list of current practitioner module content and instructors can be found here.

Coaching modules created by coaches working with ReCODE and PreCODE clients and designed to improve client outcomes include:

  • facilitating 1:1 and group coaching in the cognitive decline space;
  • working with care partners.
  • coaching as a part of a Bredesen Protocol care team.
  • incorporating mindfulness into your work.
  • balancing the educational/coaching continuum.
  • training augmented by monthly live Q&A sessions facilitated by coaches working in this highly specialized space.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

It will vary based on your individual pacing. There will be over 36 hours of required material and live calls.

How long will I have to complete the course and have access to the materials and live calls?
