Accredited Member Testimonials

When I developed the male youth at risk mentoring programme for the BACK2LIFE Foundation some five years ago, I hoped at some point to find an independent body that would offer a seal of approval for my course; a body that could satisfy course participants that the components of my course, as well as my skills at delivering them, meets certain core standards. Not only does the IAPCM (formally known as the IIC&M) do those things, they also provide an avenue for mentors trained by me to work towards their own accreditation as they develop their careers as professional mentors. Now that’s what I call win-win!”.

“As a qualified medical doctor and a professional coach, I know how important our service is to human kind. A coach is engaged in an emotional partnership with a client, hence it is essential that he or she delivers the highest quality service, adhering to confidentiality and ethical grounds. This is even more important when you have a coach training program, where you help individuals to grow personally, and prepare them to support many others in their new profession.
Accreditation with IAPC&M helped me immensely in all aspects to grow and become the best I can be. Coaching is growing slowly in Asia, so IAPC&M accreditation brings with it the excellence that corporates increasingly look for when working with a newly growing profession.

So, I thank the accreditation team at IAPC&M for the unmeasurable support and encouragement offered to me every step of the way, both personally and professionally. I would recommend IAPC&M to any individual coach/mentor, or training provider as a means of establishing yourself in a competitive world, as proof of your excellence”.

The entire process of accreditation has been extraordinarily valuable to me, as it validates the efforts I made so far, and motivates me to continue learning and improving.

I took your comments in the skills assessment very seriously, and vow to follow your expert advice, as well as study avidly the articles attached.

Again, I am very grateful to you and your staff for welcoming me into such a prestigious entity, and as I hope to evolve further in the field of coaching, I will always pay credit to the trust you bestowed upon me when you first granted me the title of Accredited Master Coach.

My best always,

Accredited Training Academy Testimonials

Accreditation with IAPCM (previously the IIC&M) validates my skills as a coach. I am impressed by the quality standards employed and the rigours one has to go through to achieve and maintain the designation. As an Attorney, I am already committed to professionalism and integrity, so I appreciate that there’s an organisation that is similarly in pursuit of excellence in my other profession; coaching. These ideals and practices can only enhance the profession of coaching for all of us who seek to deliver service at the highest levels. That the team at IAPCM is truly dedicated and helpful during the process is a bonus that makes the process even more rewarding.

MD, Pure Coaching Academy

I heard of the International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring through a company I originally trained with (which have since ceased trading). My accreditation status as an AFC (Accredited Fellow Coach) is significant in that it confirms my specialisation as a coaching expert with a significant number of years coaching experience.

Additionally, my business Life & Executive Coaching Institute is also an accredited training centre, and the Advanced Diploma in Life & Executive Coaching & Mentoring is a level 7 International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring accredited course. This level of accreditation positions the course as one that provides course participants with an in-depth level of knowledge and an understanding of coaching skills and competencies.

The International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring accreditation provides clients with the knowledge that they have achieved a high level of proficiency in coaching techniques and competencies.

The International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring has a rigorous accreditation process and as such ensures course content that is reflective of an Advanced Diploma. In addition, course participants are increasingly discerning about choosing a course that has International accreditation.

In a world of increasing globalisation accreditation at this level is important. Achieving an Advanced Diploma with international accreditation is a significant factor in course selection.
