Wim Hof Academy

We have an international team of certified WHM Instructors who teach the Wim Hof Method across the world. In order to do this effectively and responsibly, each prospective Instructor must complete our WHM Academy program, which consists of three separate Modules that together cover all the ins-and-outs of the Method, and provide an in-depth understanding of the physiological mechanisms at play.

In order to become an Instructor, you must have at least one year of experience in teaching and/or coaching adults. An official degree is not required, but you must clearly demonstrate the ability to confidently and competently guide a group of trainees.

When you have successfully completed the program, you will receive an official WHM certificate, accrediting you to provide WHM services for one year. This also means you then represent the Wim Hof Method brand and image, and must take care to always present yourself and your services accordingly.

When the year is up, you must renew your certification by participating in a mandatory refresher course to polish your knowledge and skills.

You can find more information on the individual Modules below, or click here for a downloadable file with all the specific requirements. Please note that as a general rule, the region that you select for the Advanced Module will be the same one in which you then follow the Master Module. Completing the two Modules in different regions is possible in some cases, but if you apply for this then we cannot guarantee you a spot, and your certification may be delayed by a full year. Consider this carefully.

The 2017 Modules I & II in the U.S. and Australia are completely filled, and we cannot offer any additional spots. You can fill out this form if you are interested in applying for any of the future Academy Courses, or if you would like to be considered as a reserve candidate in the event of drop-outs. If you have any additional questions pertaining directly to the Academy, please send these to academy@innerfire.nl.
