We believe accreditation is a “must” for all practitioner coaches and coach training providers who are committed to delivering exceptional care to their clients. The importance of accreditation stands out more and more, as there is more diversity than ever, which makes it so challenging nowadays for clients to choose, as well as for coaches and training providers to correctly position their own work, so that all interested parties in the global coaching world have their needs beautifully attended to.
As ASC, business owner and coach-training program director, I’ve been impressed by the added-value the accreditation team brought to both my individual practice and my coach training program. The accreditation process is thorough, detailed and comprehensive. It doesn’t only check the conformity against a checklist, it also motivates the applicant to access new resources and to bring out the best possible results from participating to an accreditation process!

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 accreditation 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 IAPC&M do all of those things and so much more, they also provide an avenue for mentors trained by me to work towards their own international accreditation status as they develop their careers as professional mentors. Now that’s what I call win-win-win”!

Hear how Isla, accredited senior coach and master mentor overcame many challenges to set up a thriving coaching / mentoring / consultancy and training practice. Isla’s business is supported by her team of associates serving a wide range of international clients.
When asked ‘why is accreditation important’? Isla said “Credibility is key to giving clients the reassurance that their coach or mentor is properly trained , experienced and professionally accredited. Being committed to being good at what you do is not enough; you must be your best for the sake of your client. Therefore, demonstrating best practice is crucial for practitioners. You can achieve this is by keeping up to date with developments in your field, to stretch yourself through continual personal development, all of which is in the best interests of your clients. Being accredited helps to define excellence in a field where anyone can claim to be a coach or a mentor without demonstrating proficiency or skill”. (more…)

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.

My International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring accreditation provides my Clients with peace of mind that I’m suitably qualified, professional and properly regulated by a professional body.
Being International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring qualified has also proved invaluable in terms of business generation for me.”

Coaching is all about having a great conversation, and that’s what the IAPC&M does best, after all, you can’t easily accredit people you don’t know!
We believe everyone matters, so, our culture is one of picking up the phone, or Skype and having a conversation, usually over a cup of tea/coffee (or in Dawn’s case a smoothie), whereby we learn about you and your business needs, that way you find out how we can help you to help yourself.
However, when it comes to choosing who to train with, we know there is a vast range of coaching/mentor training providers, which means it can be difficult to select the right company and the right course for you. So first, when selecting a training provider, check they as an organisation, or their course has been accredited – it’s a fundamental differentiator to look for. The second important thing to do is speak to the people who will be training you.
