A package of 6 hours group mentoring and 4 hours individual mentoring (giving you the required 10 mentor coaching hours) will cost you 1000 € (plus 19 % VAT if invoiced to a German address).

The group mentoring only will cost you 200 € per round (6 hours). The maximum number of participants is 6 people per group, the minimum number is 3 participants.

For the group mentoring, you need to invest 2 hours for the sessions every second week and also 2 hours of either producing a recording of your own coaching or listening to recordings of others. Your mentor will also listen to the recordings.

For the individual mentoring, you need to send a recording with you coaching to the mentor at least 1 week prior to the mentoring. The mentor listening to a maximum of 60 minutes of a recording and giving you feedback is included.

A typical group mentoring session would run like this:
• Welcome and introduction
• A short input on one or two core competency blocks
• Discussion and feedback on recording 1
• Discussion and feedback on recording 2
With 6 people to a mentoring group you will have the opportunity of having at least one of your coaching recordings discussed and you will have listened to a maximum of 5 other people coach and have gotten feedback.

The ICF are changing their certification policy as of February 28 and July 31, 2018 a nd February 28, 2019

  • From February 28, 2019 coaches will be required to hold a Professional Certified Coach credential before they can apply for the Master Certified Coach credential.
  • From July 31, 2018 on, coaches applying for any initial credential via the Portfolio path will be required to demonstrate that they completed a comprehensive training program that includes the ICF definition of coaching, Code of Ethics and Core Competencies, and is organized in a scope and sequence that encourages the growth of the coach.
  • From July 31, 2018, all applicants (including MCC) will be required to complete all their hours of client coaching experience after the start of coach-specific training.

This means, that:

  • if your initial training was not “a comprehensive training program that includes the ICF definition of coaching, Code of Ethics and Core Competencies”
  • if you have gathered a lot of coaching experience after your initial training (e.g. up to 2500 hours) and would like to apply for MCC

all of these client coaching experience hours might be lost for certification purposes if you apply later than July 31, 2018.

Find out what you need in order to apply here:

So here is what you can do to still achieve a credential if you do not have an ICF approved initial coach training.

  1. Check your initial coach training (the first training needs to have at least 30 hours from the same organization)
  2. Do you have 125 (PCC) / 200 (MCC) coach training hours? (or 115 / 190, as you may get 10 hours CCEUs from us)
  3. Can you map these training hours with the ICF core competencies?
  4. Will the training provider sign off on the mapping? (not mandatory but helpful)
  5. Have the training institute(s) sign off on the mapping of their modules with the core competencies (not mandatory but helpful)
  6. Start recording coaching sessions for PCC / MCC application
  7. Get mentoring to produce a recording that will pass the PCC / MCC certification (you need 10 hours of mentoring to apply and frankly, also to find out what the ICF are looking for when assessing a coaching session)
  8. Submit PCC application, submit MCC application or PCC then MCC application
