Certification Program

The International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute (IFCI) offers a certification program that is both client-centered and fibromyalgia-specific. Program participants learn to help clients come to terms with their fibromyalgia diagnosis, understand their treatment options, implement prescribed lifestyle changes, reduce fibromyalgia symptoms, and navigate the often confusing medical system.

We are now taking applications.
