Routes to Accreditation - Coaches & Mentors

One of the core purposes of the International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring is the provision of accreditation to enable practitioners to demonstrate the highest levels of professional standards in the industry.

This is of vital importance to us as it underpins two of our why statements, in that:

  1. We believe that everyone has the right to be protected from non-accredited coaches, mentors and training providers
  2. We believe that every coach, mentor and coach/mentor training provider must be accredited in order to practice

In being able to demonstrate the highest levels of professional standards in the industry, our accredited members support us in building trust in the coaching and mentoring profession for the benefit of everyone.

Two Routes to Accreditation

  1. Where you have trained with one of our accredited training providers (accredited route)
  2. Where you have trained through a training provider who is not accredited with us (non-accredited). 

This route is also for anyone who currently holds an accreditation or certification with a recognised organisation such as the ICF, EMCC or AfC and wishes to gain accreditation status with us..

Four Levels of Accreditation

Level of accreditation is based on achieving a number of factors including the number of hours training you have received, and the number of hours of actual experience you have. The level that you choose to apply for is reflective of your capability as a practitioner.

    1. Practitioner
    2. Senior
    3. Master
    4. Fellow (usually by invitation to apply)

With the exception of Fellow, all levels offer you the opportunity to upgrade to the next level. Full support is offered to all of our members in this process.
