What is the WHM Academy?

The WHM Academy is the Wim Hof Method branch that oversees the training of WHM Instructors. It also provides continued support for existing Instructors, and safeguards the safety and quality standards of the Wim Hof Method.

Certified WHM Instructors are required to adhere to the regulations and represent the brand professionally. Teaching the Wim Hof Method capably and responsibly requires a specific skill set. To become an Instructor you must:

  • Be able to convey the correct technique in order to guarantee a safe and sustained practice

  • Have a thorough grasp of the various physiological mechanisms that are impacted by the Wim Hof Method

  • Be able to tailor the application of the Method to the characteristics of individual practitioners

  • Possess presentation skills that translate to an enjoyable experience, showing that the WHM is fun and accessible, ultimately incentivizing people to share our important message

How do I become a WHM Instructor?

To qualify for the WHM Academy program you must have at least two years of experience in teaching, coaching or similar. An official degree is not required, but you will be asked to demonstrate your ability to confidently and competently guide a group of trainees. If your proficiency is considered inadequate, you will not be able to continue with the program.

The Academy program consists of three Modules; Basic, Advanced & Master. To become certified, all three must be successfully completed. You can read more about the individual Modules and the evaluation and certification process below.

Note: Activities like WHM Workshops or Expeditions and Travels are entirely separate and cannot be used as a substitute for any of the Modules.
