Why is it important to get mentored to apply for ICF credential?

In order to make sure that your coaching skills are at par with ICF standards, 10 hours of mentoring is included as a mandatory step for the credentialing process. The Mentor coach supports you with detailed feedback by observing your coaching sessions so that you get clarity about your strengths and your focus areas as a coach. Since there are three coaching sessions also provided under this program, you get the opportunity to explore your areas deeper to be able to work on them.

How does the mentoring program support in credentialing?

Mentoring program supports you to sharpen your coaching skills as per the ICF defined credential standards. The program at the same time prepares you to clear ICF Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA).

What is NOT promised through this program?

While the program prepares you for your credentials and CKA, it does NOT promise the credential on ICF behalf. The decision of providing you with credential is purely with ICF.

How does one qualify as a Mentor Coach?

Mentor Coach needs to hold the necessary credential to be able to support you with the right feedback and observation. For ACC and PCC preparation the mentor coach needs to be at least PCC. Some Mentor coaches are also trained to be mentor coaches which is an added advantage for this role.
